    I would like some advise on the size of sub to consider.
    Is the HSU VTF-2 good enough for a 22' x 14' room? I will be using it mostly for HT. What would be a Paradigm equivalent/is it better for my application?

    I can't get SVS or Velodyne in my part of the world(Malaysia) unfortunately. Ordering over the internet will cost me a bomb in local taxes. The HSU is retailing at USD685! over here.(Only one obnoxious distributor in town!)

    Can anyone who owns a HSU comment on the quality/manufacturing of the product?

    I can get REL but hear poor quality control from the UK AV forum.

    Are the B&W subs comparable in class?

    Thanks for any input.

    I think I would get 2 of the vtf-2's stack one on top of the other, you will have some good bass to fill that room.

    I have a room with almost the same exact specs. I hav a 12" DIY Shiva. It has more than enough bass to fill my room. One thing you didn't mention was how high your ceiling are. Mine are almost 9'.

    Dave,

    The height of my room is 8.5'. The VTF-2 is a 10" sub. Should I be looking at a 12"?

    Dustin,

    I shall check the Paradigm PW2200 pricing over here.
    Thanks for the recommendation.

    Mark,

    I'm looking for a single sub for the time being due to budget constraints. However, I like the idea of two subs!

    Anyone own a HSU? How's the quality/manufacturing/defect problems if any?

    Thanks.

    You got any tools? There is an Adire dealer in Malaysia. So if you can build an enclosure, an Adire dealer would have the drivers and amps to make a kick ass sub.
    They also might carry the Dharman which I would take over a PW2200.
