I've been on the B-stock waiting list for a STF-2, (smallish listening room with low - 7ft ceiling), for about 8 or 9 weeks. I sent an e-mail to HSU asking where I stood on the wait-list. They quickly answered, saying they had just gotten a bunch in stock and gave a phone number to call if I was still interested. Bottom line: my new STF-2 is sceduled to arrive Monday - $344 deliverd to my door. Can't wait.
May I also recommend Mercury Falling from Sting. I am thoroughly enjoying it right now with my STF-2. The Hounds of Winter (first song) and La Belle Dame sans Regrets are literally going through my body right now (the song of course and not the La Belle Dame)
not sure exactly how big it is. but with a 4000 cubic ft room id probably go with the stf-3. the stf-2 is real nice but the added power would do a much better job for that sized room. my room is maybe 2000 cubic feet tops.
all i know is im glad im rid of my e150. i never understood what tight bass was but now i do and i love what im hearing.
u think i have to crossover set to low? i have it at 60 but will try it at 90. also my carpet is very thin, basically carpet on concrete. would a throw rug underneath make it sound better. also is there a break in period.
well I just remeasured my room: it's a total of 31' x 21' x 17' (cathedral ceiling), guesstimating around 5000 cubic feet. I'll post the diagram in a separate thread asking for placement and treatment advice.
Dr. Hsu recommended the STF-3, just wanted to get other thoughts.
Good lord Edtser your listening room is bigger than my poor little house! It doesn't pay to be a social worker (especially one addicted to this shi!). Personally I think you should get 2 SV Subs, that will shrink your room by 3000 cubic feet.
also my carpet is very thin, basically carpet on concrete. would a throw rug underneath make it sound better. also is there a break in period.
From the Setup FAQ at the HSU website:
Q: Do HSU subwoofers require a break in period? A: Give the subwoofer a few days to break in and reach its optimal sound. For example, 2-3 movies at a normal listening level will help. Remember to use material with bass, and remember that proper room placement and calibration of the volume are also critical factors in determining the subwoofer's sound.
