Thank you for the suggestion...DIY is just not for me...I am leaning towards HSUs
I have a 2950cu-ft room myself and have a singe HSU VTF15-MK2 Yes it's out of your budget but your VTF-2 would be no slouch in your room either.

The nicest thing about the HSU's is the fact you can run ported or sealed. I have mine dialed in with a Q of .6 and it's the best compromise between movies/music. The sub works amazing for music. With the way mine is dialed in I plug it for sealed.... simply pull the plug for ported. I run in EQ1 mode.

Once I found the proper place for my sub I have no issues hitting 115+db on my tests now. My response is flat and have a response of 12hz to 70hz very flat.

I'm sure the PSA is great too but no matter what you choose you gotta remember that there is no replacement for displacement and without a doubt I would recommend a 15" over any 12".

If you could swing the money I'd suggest PSA for it's output but if you do choose HSU you won't be dis-satisfied either. It does give you plenty of options for dialing in the sound (ported/sealed, eq1/eq2/Q control)

I love mine and can't wait to add a second.

Re: Recommendation for a Sub

For my own search, I settled on a Hsu VTF-2. Kevin at Hsu was very patient and helpful in answering questions like a setup mixing a VFT-1 + VTF-2, VTF-1 + MBM-12,etc. Instead of a quicker, bigger sale, he helped me stay on track, adding one very capable sub to see how I liked it.
