I'm very new to this and just noticed bass tubes exist. Besides the physical dimensions, what are the major differences between a subwoofer in a tube and a box? I just upgraded my stereo and am slowly changing out my home theater speakers. Right now I am using the Athena Micra system and while the sub is good, I didn't realize my room would be considered "large" (it's about 20X15) and a bigger sub would fill the room better.
I'm not going to replaceit for several months and I'm keeping an open mind to any suggestions. The sub I put on my stereo is a HSU VTF-2 MK3 and it sounds really great for music but isn't as 'punchy' as I'd like on the H.T.
I hear a 10" is better than a 12" for that chest stabbing stuff. ANy opinoins on that as well?
