Jman! As usual I thoroughly enjoyed your review. I have a question however, about when you reference things like absurd levels, or painful levels(sorry for the paraphrase) etc. The reason I ask is, everyone has a different threshold. More than that though, for example in my system MV-20 is my baseline. This is quite loud but not to where I worry about hurting my subs. I'll adjust accordingly depending on mood, company etc. I understand due to speaker sensitivity differences and room size differences it might not be a lateral comparison, but I wonder if it would be worth noting relative volume levels for comparison. Or even what the values are on your spl meter during such passages.
It's a good point, what exactly constitutes 'painful'? What's the difference between my threshold or someone else's? It's all subjective really. To a large extent, most of a review is; loud for me could be mild for someone else, or it might be considered extreme. I don't know of anyone else who publishes SPL readings though, so I'm not sure I will either. I can definitely see where you're heading with that though, because something similar has occurred to me over the years. How does one quantify such things?

Btw, I enjoyed your inclusion of Dave Grohls attributes. As a drummer who plays guitar and sings, that was nice to see. I also love AIC's dirt. I have a promo copy of "Jar of flies" that has little plastic flies in the spine.
Personally, I don't believe Dave gets his due. For the type of music I listen to - and, it seems, you do as well - this man has been at the top of the heap for over 2 decades. Toss in the fact he can play about half a dozen instruments and sing? Yea, that certainly gets my attention.

As a HSU VTF-15H MK2 owner I will say this. My sub is stupid big for a 15". Had this been out I would of likely bought it instead. 18" cube is excellent for a 15" driver.

all three subwoofers are identical (VTF-15H MK2, ULS-15 MK2, VTF-3 MK5 HP) It's nice to see enclosure options. Completely sealed small size. Ported midsize and large size (mine).

I love mine I really do. I want to try PSA out but my sub leaves nothing to desire. I just want to add a second to take advantage of the XMC stereo subwoofer capability and have better room response across my couch listening space.

Good review btw.
Are you considering another VTF-15H MK2 or adding the ULS-15 MK2. I've been thinking about adding another sub, but been holding back due to the size of VTF-15H cabinet. I was contemplating selling my sub and going with 2 sealed DIY 18's.

Adding another VTF-15H MK2.

Made space for it by centering my rack and relocating some things already. Now I have an empty hole waiting for some dual sub goodness.

Gotcha and now I see where it will ultimately sit... curious why the sub is covered with cloth? Reflections from the projector?
