Cool Re: What about HSU Research?

You should try JL Audio Fathom F113,
http://home.jlaudio.com/products_subs.php?prod_id=371

I bought it on the spot and moved the B&W to the garage

Of course the price is a bit higher!

Smile Re: What about HSU Research?

I know this is not the best reason to purchase a sub-woofer, but here goes. Please hold your laughter....

My Plateau stand is a very light maple (I have uploaded a picture). My Acoustic Research S12HO is to its left, and has served me well, but it is "basic black". I thought the HSU VTF-3 MK3 in maple, but without the turbo option would look nice. (Or VTF-3 HO, the latter because "bigger is better"???) There is a lot of "wife factor" here, she has tolerated me for quite a long time now.

I have a Denon AVR-3808ci hooked up to this, and (again, please hold the snickering down) Bose Acoustimass AM5-III speakers and center speaker (you can see the right speaker above the turntable), along with a Buttkicker with two LFEs.

Any thoughts on this? If you have managed to read this far, should I spring the extra $200 for the 500 watter?

(And yes, I have already experienced the drawbacks of a turntable so close to a speaker.)

IMHO, if I were you, I would dump the Bose, and hold off on the sub - using that money + a little bit more to buy better front and center speakers.

I doubt you'd need the larger sub to pair with the Bose speakers.
