There is no comparisons between that sub and a Submersive.

Get the Submersive + combo!! I never thought i'd have to turn down the sub HP+ & slave combo is great. Finally heard upper more detailed bass but output is awesome and my room is open on one side hi cathedral ceilings . I sit almost 20 feet from the subs & it's more than enough with movies it will sound awesome & the amount is something you'll never regret it.

Hi Mark,
I bought a Submersive HPi+ slave combo last about a year ago and wanted to know if you could give me some advice on setup, my mancave / home theater room is roughly 6500 cu ft is 23x29x9 with a 5x4  extensionwhere a doorway is and 9x6 extension for a kitchenette and bar area  in the rear of the rear. My subs a currently on either side of my tv in the front firing side to side and I am not just not getting the bass level I was hoping for. Would I be better off having the subs near field on the side of my home theater seating so they would fire front to back? I bought a 15 ft cable to go to my slave and setting it up this way would require 60 ft cable to run up in the walls and across the attic space. The home theater seating is in the center of the room and the subs would have to be placed just behind seating. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I'm not Mark but you need to get some measuring software (OmniiMic or REW) to
find the best spot(s) for those subs.

Secondly, that is a HUGE space (over 7000 cf). As phenominal as those subs are, they still have their limits.

But the only way you will know how good they are is to optimize their locations and you will need meadurements to do so!

Thanks for the reply, these replaced a pair of JL F113's that were awesome subs in every way but did not deliver the spl I was looking for, I also have a Danley DTS-10 but have not been able to get it dialed in either, I have a lot of windows in the room so the only available locations are on the front wall flanking the tv but not the corners as there is a door that opens in the left. The only other option is the near field locations I mentioned in my original post. The Submersive combo sounds great the way it is in some ways but still falls of what I am looking for, trying to get advice on my current setup before I give up and go with something else. A pair of Marianna 24's are currently on my radar if this doesn't get any better.

You can buy 2 24's or 4 24's or 16 24's but if you have a big hole in the frequency response, for example,  in the chest thumping level, at the current locations [APPROX 60 TO 80HZ], relative to the other frequencies, and that hole  is caused by room cancellation, changing subs is going to get you nowhere other than more frustrated [and more money spent]. 

At least measurements will allow you to find the BEST spots (maybe not ideal) given your room limitations, to place the subs.

It's your money and you get to do whatever you want. But I highly recommend either getting REW up and running or buying OmniMic (or XTZ) OR find someone who will measure it for you.

What is considered the best speaker of the HP and F2? I want the most powerful sub, with insane LFE aswell as nice upperbass.

And does anyone know if they ship to EU? I live in norway and am wondering how much shipping would set me back for one of these babys.

The F2 and HP are identical in performance as they use the exact same drivers, amplifier, and DSP.  I own a master and slave of each. The only difference is the form factor (i.e. design/layout) of the sub.  You should call or email mark for a shipping quote.
