Hi Jevan,

Where are you located in Southern Ohio? I'm in the Cincy area. Have a setup in a ~6000 cu/ft basement, concrete slab over carpet with 2 XV30's. Similar conditions to what you described in a prior post.

Welcome to come by for a listen. Everything's temp placed as this is a build in progress so stuff can be moved around, etc.

I am right in NKY, I have 2 XS30s in a very large open room.

Do the PSA subs have a high pass filter?

Wait, nm I don't think it has outputs.

I'm now eager for the announcements to come because I just bought the XDA-2 DAC / digital preamp and am running my current sub via high pass filter.

I need sub #2 to do the same.

Hi there and thanks for the invite!

I'm in the Portsmouth area, so a few hours from you, but we're both right on the river, eh? wink.gif

Have you measured your response?

Do you get any tactile feel? How close is your MLP to your subs and where are your subs currently located?

If I get to Cincy any time soon, I'll PM you and maybe can bring my measuring gear.

I'm waiting on Tom's new announcement this week, but I'm thinking more and more about trying to add a ported sub to the mix and see if it can be done in my room (mixing the two sealed Empire's I have with an XV30f) because I really want that tactile sensation/couch shaking.

Obviously, with the size rooms we have and with our rooms having concrete floors, we aren't gonna shake the floors, but I've heard of others with big rooms and concrete floors having setups that still get their pants flapping.

Would love to talk to you more about your setup, observations, what you had before the XV30's, etc.

Thanks again for the invite and I look forward to speaking with you more soon.

Now that is going kick some serious Martin Logan butt and looks like it's ready to tangle with Paradigm's Sub 2 and give them a full fledged clinic.

...eek.gif

Am I on target or getting carried away? Congrats on such a wonderful offering.

Question:

Would a room be happy with just one of those? I ask because of the need for room smoothing and something that powerful (4,000w RMS) would need a thirty amp breaker installed.

Oh my gosh!

Probably depends for each person, if you're the only person in that room listening do you really need multiple subs for room smoothing since you'll only be in one spot?

if your only concerned with one or two listening posistions, one sub with a eq device will most likely do just fine...however i prefer multiple subs because I want to fill several seating posistions with a even bass response. in my case one sub leaves 2 seats in a null, flip the second sub on and those seats come to life. However I would be interested to see if this new Triax can fill a room with bass like multiple subs do being its design. I am not familiar with this design...looks amazing tho.

Wow, I thought I was going to hopefully save up for the xv30f....you are killing me Tom. Hopefully, in a few months I'll be able to find out if I can buy the Triax.

I wonder if this is the same amp that JTR and Seaton uses?

Tom??

Do you think THIS sub might be good for my room now, or should I look at selling my Empire's and going w/ two XV30f's??

I've been looking at the JTR Captivator S2 for the last few days at $2999 plus shipping, even though I'll have to save up a bit since my budget is really $2000 right this second, but this looks like it could absolutely give the S2 a run for its money!!

I can't wait to see a pic of the driver and some measurements!

Maybe PSA actually DOES have a driver for my almost 5000 cu ft concrete floor room! biggrin.gif

Only one problem in your above, I don't live in the world of hypothetical. In the real world where I live, there are many seating positions. I don't watch movies on my own and a valid response to my question.....matters.

Please don't sully this "you heard it first here" announcement by Tom of PSA and ruin my valid to me question as I do care about room smoothing issues and smoothness of measurement at each seating position, to me, is important.

To be able to pose questions to an industry mover-n-shaker is a privilege and I don't want my question to be used as a distraction to an industry announcement.

In my opinion, this announcement is a major announcement as it sets many manufactures on notice with admitted, more announcements to come.

Definitely. If the footprint isn't important, the triax is an eye opener!

Holy ****! That thing is a BEAST!!!

I'm freaking stoked for Tom and Jim and the future of PSA. Everything about that sub screams BAMF. The name, the design, the amplifier, the weight (190lbs eek.gif ) But at the same time I'm sad because I no longer have their biggest sub LOL. Hell would have to freeze over before the COMNAVWIFEFORCE will let me buy such a beast. Maybe the next time we move and the next time I build a home theater, I will pull out all the stops. 2 Triax! Although I will probably have to reinforce the theater with bomb shelter like reinforcement.

Congratulations Tom, Jim and PSA!
