Might sound strange but I like the fact that you're going to start with one and then 'upgrade' to two--it will really highlight the differences that are caused by the Triax, as opposed to the differences caused by multiple subs.

Watch that lower back when you haul these...

That will be a nice jump in output and FR. Couple of questions- how come you switched to PSA instead of a different line from SVS? How big of a room will you have it in? Dedicated theater? Congrats and enjoy!!

He is getting a XV15 and the PB-1000 is also a ported sub. Am I missing something?

The PB-1000 dug deep enough and was impressive for its price point, but in my large 23x13x8 room it just didn't quite give me that warm and fuzzy feel in the 50-100hz range. My wife hates the "fuzzy trash can" so that wasn't an option in our living room based theater, and the PB-12's dimensions weren't ideal for the lone front left corner that it has to live in. SVS treated me like gold and had no problems whatsoever issuing me a pre-paid return label. I knew going in that the PB-1000 was going to have a tough time filling my room, so it sure wasn't its fault.

Tom spent quite a while with me several weeks ago and I really like his business approach and professionalism and can't wait to hear the end result of those qualities in the XV15. biggrin.gif

With a room that size, an upgrade was inevitable. When you spoke with Tom, did he feel that 1 XV-15 would even be enough?

Hi guys,

Finally getting to clearing out the basement and moving subs around. I have 2 XV30's. Attached is a picture of my basement + HT area. It's a fairly large area to pressurize. I currently have the subs in positions (in red). After moving one sub to the south wall, the sound is improved but still not completely rocking. When both subs were on the wall, I was sitting in a bad null and I think the thin sheet rock didn't really add much bass wave reinforcement.

I am thinking about moving the viewing wall to the east wall with possible sub locations in blue. The SE wall would be the only corner (backed up to earth) but I'm not 100% sure I want an XV30 right next to the water main and electrical panel with all the rattling smile.gif

Was wondering what you guys thought?

Based on my happiness with my Cadence CSX-12 from 40-100hz he thought 1 XV15 would be enough. I'm not a bass freak and the Cadence was perfect for me above 35hz., but was pretty weak below that. He said a single XV15 will surpass the Cadence in every frequency and especially from 35hz on down.

Haha, I gotcha now. Well, unfortunately I just moved my family to the Southeast only to learn that I am now considered "non-essential", so I don't see a second one in my future. My current one is boxed up in storage right now too ;(

Yes I can believe it! All of my 20,000 + coworkers carrying a badge and gun are working for free too. I just happened to switch to a training environment...which makes me non essential... Not sure which is worse?

Let us know your thoughts. Definitely a big step up! If you are not a total bass freak, you should have lots to spare!
