    I've been reading some glowing reports about the HSU VTF3 and saw a post from Russel who has one........Anyone care to comment about this sub and potentially contrast it to an SVS? Been seriously thinking of getting one instead of an SVS because of the spouse and space factor.

    You can also check out my subjective 2 cents here click . The VTF-3 is a great sub. I love mine more every day.

    Hi...Cannot contrast the SVS subs with HSU. But can tell you that I listened to Velodyne and several others in my room before deciding upon the VTF-3. First off I must say I am a bass person[​IMG] Ended up with two VTF-3's. I have a huge room and love bass. My better half was perfectly happy with one...so don't read two as a necessity.
    ANyways - this is perhaps the most musical sub I have ever heard. I do not know what your preferences are - HT/music...But this sub has some of the tightest bass movement I have heard. It is incredible listening to this...not boom, boom, booom, but clearly hearing the tone. I happen to have it perfectly aligned with my mains and this combination is just unbeatable. The extension of the sub is also superb. I could spend hours on the details of the various testing we did, suffice it to say clearly goes to 20hz without a hiccup. For HT its equally as adept. From Jurassic Park to Star Wars to Pearl Harbor and everything in between. Clean, clear bass. Recently watched Kate & Leopold, there are some thunder/storm sequences and we actually were checking outside to see if a storm had moved in. (Live in Phoenix and this is somewhat of a rarety!) The sub reproduced the tracks so realistically that it was as if a storm was over the house.
    I have heard that both subs (SVS * HSU) are great, so you probably can't go wrong with either choice. AT the end of the day decided upon the VTF's over the SVS because of extension and size.
    Good Luck
    Therese

    I concur with Therese that the VTF3 is pretty amazing. His take on the Kate and Leopold is right on. I have mine paired up with the new Rockets, and I listened to that storm scene over and over. It is extremely well recorded and realistic. The bass is so convincing, it made me think I was in the middle of a massive Tucson monsoon.
    I have friend down the street with an SVS 25 39 PCi. I'm almost afraid to ask if anyone is up for another shootout.

    Russ, You must have gotten the same storm we did[​IMG]Had a horrific storm yesterday evening - after it had passed, watched the storm scene in Kate & Loepold again to see how "realistic" it truly was. Dead on!! We were joking around that we could recreate mother nature - now if we could just get it to rain when we wanted.....
    Hmmm... Maybe the rockets will help produce a "rain dance"....
    One VTF-3 is Great, Two are Bass Heaven!
