i just got my new VTF3 MK2 HSU subwoofer...and i am speechless....i'm not sure what to say....i think i broke something in the foundation of my house. how in the hell does a 12" sub make this kinda power? it's sick!!! i must have another one!!! :-P hehehehe...and i need to move to a farm i think or my neighbours will linch me soon i'm sure. if you do not have one of these, i STRONGLY recommend getting one. if the axiom subs actually go this low this loud...i'd be stunned. i sure would love to see a side by side report of an axiom 350 or even 500 vs this sub. i think the 500 is a lot more money though right? anyone got charts to compare? or has done a side by each comparison? i'd love to know!!!

wow...alli can say is WOW

All HSU subs do an excellent job, and provide a phenomenal bang for the buck. I had an STF-2 that did a fine job. I still would like to get an EP500 (though heaven knows I don't need that much sub in a room my size), but I have profound respect for Dr.Hsu and his products.

do i run any risk of blowing this sub? the manual seems to indicate that i really can't since the bash amp and the sub are perfectly matched? i cranked it up on WAR OF THE WORLDS...and in a couple of spots it "pops" like it's clipping. should this happen? and holy crap does that movie have a TON of bass...with my other sub, i never even heard 1/2 of what is actually goin on there cause i guess it just didn't dip deep enough or go loud enough that deep. also, for settings, if i want to use my internal crossover settings in my receiver, do i set that to OUT or IN on the back of the sub? i'm a little confused about that one

That is one good thing about the Axiom DSP 500 and 600, the DSP technology won't let them blow. I think the 500 or 600 would easily give that sub a run for the money. Sutter may be able to expand as he has that model, and just ordered a 500 that will arrive on Monday. Based on the reviews from Audioholics and other websites, I think they most likely would perform better.

The VTF-3 sure is nice, isn't it ? Glad you are enjoying it.

If you hear a different sound when playing loud I would back off the volume control a bit. You can damage most subs if you abuse them too much and WOTW seems to have about the hottest bass track of any DVD so far. The good news is that WOTW may be the *only* movie you have to do that with...

By way of comparison, I *think* the VTF-3 will outperform an EP350 but an EP500 will outperform the VTF-3. Either way you have a REALLY good sub there. Enjoy !!

well, i wanted to compare to the 350 due to price range really, and ya, i absolutely LOVE it. honestly, i never thought i would not need 2 subs, but this ONE alone is way too much already. i had to turn it down a lot already to keep it civil.

That "clapping " sound you are hearing is the driver bottoming out.You will damage the sub if this continues.You need to calibrate the sub to match the rest of the system.

Actually my EP500 is suppose to ship today, I think. I wish it was arriving today though. lol

I plan to post a review comparing these two subs once the EP500 arrives and I get it hooked up and calibrated.

Congrats on the VTF3, WOTW is a VERY demanding bass movie and as others have said probsbly the hottest one yet. Do you have an RS meter to calibrate the sub? If not I'd bet dollars to doughnuts your running the sub a lot hotter than you should. I have dual VTF3 MKII subs in my 13x24 room and they are calibrated flat and handle WOTW with no problem. Also if it's more headroom you require you can always get the turbo add on for the VTF3 in January from Hsu(I know I'll be buying one for each of my subs). The turbo will give you some where around a 5 or 6 db boost in headroom or in my case a 10 to 12db boost.
