Before you dump the subs you have remember how much placement and seating position affects subwoofer performance.

I wouldn't be surprised to find the HSUs outperform the DefTech subs (box size relative to woofer size seems to be a factor as well) but unless you have heard the two subs sitting in the same spot in the room keep in mind that the difference might not be as big as you think.

Having said that, I also think the VTF-3's are fantastic.

Oh good.

Also keep in mind that the EP600 and any of the bigger SVS subs will go deeper and play louder than the VTF3, and the EP500 will go deeper than the VTF3 but probably won't play louder. It's true !! There are some awesome subs on the market now; it's hard to go wrong.

Do you know if your buddy had the VTF3s in 25hz (native) or 20 Hz tune ? I think they are 25 Hz with all the ports open and 20 Hz with one of the ports plugged.

The bigger SVSs tune to 20, 16 or 12 Hz -- I don't know where the new Axiom subs are tuned.

All the talk about subs lately especially on other sites have me a bit concerned with my order of the ep500. You say HSU sounds better than anything you ever heard before. For the price I would be better off getting 2 HSU instead of 1 ep500. How do they compare just using one sub? I think 2 subs in my room would be overkill but I bet it would sound nice.

Clarence, I wouldn't be concerned about the 500. I'd wager the farm that you'll be very happy with it. If you've been following that thread at AVS, stay tuned. It's REALLY gonna get interesting.

And it has .


I think Jack is right on the EP500, I wouldn't worry about it's performance one bit.
