    I hope they run the HSU VTF-3 through the same tests.

    We need more objective info about that sub; I found the Barry Barnes' review to be very subjective and difficult to evaluate.

    I just like that quote! He starts review out by saying you can't even call them on the phone, then he uses the "give 'em a ring" phrase. ;-)

    We know what he means of course, but still funny.

    I can attest to that new CS Ultra being one incredible sub. I've never heard a better sub period.

    Tom and Ron,
    Congratulations on yet another great review --
    Imagine what would happen if you made a really great product [​IMG]
    (For those of you that missed it, that was a joke).
    Regards,

    Those guys at secret's puts their equipment through different battery of test every time they review something.

    Maybe they should have a designated lab guy like JA @ 'phile, so that a set std of test is defined and performed on every piece of equipment no matter who reviewed its sonic performance.

    Wow that's an impressive THD measurement. 5% @ 100dB 20Hz/1m, 1.5% 32Hz/1m... Great job guys.
    Do we know how they reached the 112 dB limit at 20Hz/1m? Port noise? Amp clipping? Driver bottoming? I'd be curious to find out [​IMG]
    And as for subwoofer X... is that the Sunfire?

    John,

    Sorry if my question was out of line. I was just curious.

    Jim,
    You weren't out of line [​IMG]
    I was wondering how long before everyone caught on, so I changed my sig [​IMG]

    Nice results, I wish more subs were tested like this to allow comparisons, especially as regards frequency response.

    I think the reason was that JJ lives in the San Francisco bay area and was concerned about kicking off an Earthquake on the San Andreas fault [​IMG]
    Tom, have you sent an e-mail out to JJ -- he might join in here to add some commentary on his testing methods.
    Just a thought....

    Oh yeah, Tom. Congratulations! [​IMG]
    Standardized testing protocols would be nice, but I liked what I read as much as JJ seemed to like what he heard.
