|Comments on HT System:||Vifa makes great drivers. The 8" Vifa woofer is their best driver (compared to others at the price). So good that I bought 8. In less than 1 cu. ft. They will give 45Hz. Isobarik makes the subs very small so we can hide them behind/under sofas. If you are looking to have a mono SUB build the sub into the lowest part of teh TV trolley. If the magnets of the drivers are about 18" from the TV it wont affect the TV.|
