    would this sub sound right if placed in a 3 sided enclosure such as a cabnet or entertainment center? my cabnet is 18"w/25"h/20"d I thnk that would leave 4" on each side for the ports to breathe. I can't find a sub that's front fireing with ports in front as well. and also would the vtf2 fill a room thats 15'/20' opening into other rooms? thanks for all yall's help

    This should work fine. I would leave it max extension mode...and block off the *rear* firing port. The driver is down firing..so being enclosed on 3 sides should have minimal effect. You might run into the cabinet vibrating though.

    It is usually a bad idea to pre-determine the subwoofer location in the room like this though. Would the subwoofer be near a corner by any chance?

    I would go ahead and give it a shot then [​IMG]
    Just leave a little gap on the amp side of the vtf-2 to make sure it gets a little air over the cooling fins. I would guess an inch between the fins and the nearest cabinet wall would be fine.

    I think the Velodyne CHT models are front firing and have front ports.

    The AR S300 and S500 subs are down firing with front facing ports and volume control. Unfortunately I believe they were discontinued a few months back and you'd be lucky to find one. The VTF-2 should outclass them anyways from what I can tell, having listened to neither.
