Man, oh man. Xmas won't suck after all. The better half has given me the go ahead in a plan of action to purchase a decent sub. I have spoken to Dr. HSU. He has told me the HSU Vtf 2 would work for my 12X20 ft living room. Something tells me, though, that it wouldn't be much of an upgrade though, output wise over my JBL PB12. Does anyone own this sub? If so, how does it compare to the VTF3?? I've also spoken to someone over at SVS. They seem to think that this is a rather large area and that at a minimum I need a larger sub than that. They say I need a PB12+ or a PCI 20-39+ at least. I was considering the PCI 25-31, but that would probably not fill the room according to SVS. Is the HSU VTF2 that good or does SVS like overkill? I have considered the Axiom EP500, but I'd have to purchase from the FO and I don't want to wait 5 weeks. Another option is the Mirage Omni s12 which I have seen on sale online this holiday season. Please, someone point me in the right direction. The Mrs. seems to be leaning towards the HSU VTF3 until she saw the sale price on the Mirage. HELP?

Well, they ARE having a sale over at HSU on the VTF 2 and 3's. Also you can get a discount if you preorder the VTF3 HO. Just look in their forum. An EP500 from FO would rock you like the proverbial hurricane as well.

I LOVE my VTF2. Fills my 19x27 room fine. I'm sure the corner placement doesn't hurt either...

Got it on bstock so it was pretty cheap. Doing it over again, I'd get the piano black, that's gorgeous. Haven't compared to other subs though. Blissful ignorance...

Congrats on the go ahead for a new sub.I have a VTF-2 MK1 in a room that is 13.5x20x7 and it handles the room pretty darn good.I suspect it would do a great job for you.If by chance you get a good deal on a VTF-3MK2 from a gracious forum member here then I would say jump on it.

I too have a VTF-2 MKI. A great sub indeed, but having heard the VTF-3, If I had to do it over again, I'd get the VTF-3 (or an EP500)

Bruce, I have great respect for both Dr. Hsu and Tom at SVS(if he's the one you talked to), but I can't imagine that either the VTF-2 or PCI 25-31 wouldn't be fine for your average-sized room(if you don't want to be blown away by an EP-500).
