(They were priced very close to each other) After I get it connected and listen for a while. I may come back and give my opinion. I replaced a little 12 inch Infinity ( 14X14X14) with a 150 watt amplifier. This new HSU one has a 350 watt RMS BASH amp and measures ( 21Hx17Wx25D) ( It's a monster sub), so it should really rock for music and movies.

I also purchased the HSU VTF-3 sub with the turbo upgrade and I can't imagine why anyone would need more than one of these babies in normal sized residential room. I have my VTF-3 behind a large couch in my home theater room and it's only at ~1/3 full volume level and it reverberates/rocks the entire listening area during deep bass sequences/scenes :-). I am very happy with my VTF-3 and I have no plans to replace it.

Here's a picture of the HSU VTF-3 w/ Turbo Upgrade:

Thumbs up Re: What about HSU Research?

I bought an Hsu sub years ago and loved it ... used it for years until I upgraded my whole system to B&W Matrix 803s, 805s and the big ASW sub. If price is an issue, you can't beat Hsu IMHO. And I sold it on Audiogon and reaped most of my original investment - all around a great experience.

I was quite happy with my Hsu - it was priced right, had amazing bass, and when I resold it - it held its value well. I replaced it with the big monster from B&W - the ASW850 to match all my other speakers and amps (Classe).
