    I would appreciate some advice. I bought a HSU Research VTF-2 recently. When I was moving the thing I grabbed the bottom of the unit where the subwoofer speaker is located. Rather than resting my fingers on the edge of the unit, I rested them on the edge of the speaker. When I picked the thing up, I compressed the edge of the speaker. As soon as I felt what I was doing, I released the thing and the speaker edge rebounded back to it's original position. The subwoofer still sounds OK, but is it possible I damaged it. How would I test for damage? Any thoughts?

    I think you're fine. As long as you don't see any physical damage and it doesn't sound any different, just crank it and enjoy.

    I doubt if you damaged it. Just be glad you didn't puncture the woofer itself. Whew !

    That thing can move back and forth 1 1/2 inches forty times a second! How could it hurt to push the surround in a little bit? [​IMG]

    Crank up your base and stick your finger under there. (Just so you know what's happening in there)
