    Is there such a thing? I currently have the VTF-2, but find myself wanting more. I've been considering a DIY sub for a while, but Im skeptical on finding an affordable sub that will outperform dual vtf-2s or a single vtf-3. Can someone point me in the right direction? I should also note that i prefer this DIY sub to have the amp onboard-no external amps

    Thanks

    Also any size constraints (not driver, but enclosure)?

    Price range $500-700(cheaper would be even better)

    Size -no taller than 33 inches

    this sub is mainly used for HT

    Do the other dimensions not matter?
