Am I imagining things or is this possible? I suspect the improvement is in the 30-40hz range based on tinkering I've been doing with the crossover.

I don't have an spl meter yet so I cant measure but it's on my to do list.

Thanks!

No your not, Moving a sub woofer even a few inches can change its frequency response which results in a change of sound.

Maybe a little boundary gain with the driver firing off the speakers.

Looks like another cheap FI driver rolleyes.gif

However its ok for HSU to use efficient, low xmax, stamped steel basket, foam surround drivers, with enclosures that have little to no internal bracing, according to our beloved subwoofer expert...._____(fill in the blank) smile.gif

Sorry I couldnt help myself.

Wasn't meant to be a negative remark, just from looking at it, resembles a Dayton to me. Looks like a damn fine, quality driver... Can't wait to hear the reviews.

Actually, I was pondering if I could integrate this sub as an end table, near-field as my dual S1's sit up front in my room? Would be interesting...

No worries, I figured you where talking about the look....

I bet you could, the drivers back wave (sound wave from the back of the driver) all fire back into each other, which tends to cancel out the back wave. You shouldn't get to much vibration.

It's just knowing that its the most powerful piece in a ht setup, it's what rocks the foundation of the house, makes music and movies more intense, the pressure crushing your chest is an awesome feeling biggrin.gif

I just watched my first movie after recently upgrading my equipment. I had to take off the cinema effect and the dialogue enhancer because it was muffling some sounds and dialogue in the movie but other than that everything sounded really good and I'm finally feeling content. Toeing out my front left and right towers really created a larger soundstage like I wanted. By the way the movie I tried out was World War Z and Surprisingly it was better than I thought it'd be. Nonstop action and the zombies were so crazy! eek.gif

My 2 -1/2 months old XV15 whose amp was replaced in week one has started to have another issue. I did not notice that before. Any time I change channels on source or change the source from equipment to another, like from wd tv to blu ray or to sat, I hear one loud clipping noise from sub. Otherwise, sub is working awesome.

Is it because of Sub or can be issue with my Yamaha A2010 receiver?

Thanks

You might start by checking that cable from XV15 to AVR is secure at both ends. Since you had a previous problem with your XV15 you should probably check back with PSA and see if they have any suggestions.

This is almost always traced back to an issue with the receiver / processor. Normally, the receiver will mute any preout when the audio codec is lost/found. If the subwoofer pre-our is not muted the subwoofer will produce an audible "TUMP" type of sound. The issue can often be tamed a bit by experimenting with the bass level control in the receiver in conjunction with the gain control on the subwoofer.

One theory is that we tend to experience significantly more exposure to frequencies >100hz during our lives.

There is also the "flight or fight" consideration. Deep, loud bass can elevate our heart rate and blood pressure. Some believe this can be traced back to early man's struggles against larger predators. And we already know there's an established connection between the heart rate/BP rise and a release of endorphins in humans.
