In my current location... I am going to have to have my Triax in the corner right next to my seat and on the other side of it a couch. It will basically be surrounded on all 4 sides. I hope that works out ok. My little KLH does fine there. When we build a proper HT then I will be able to fine tune the location.

Placed an order for a XV30 yesterday. Next week should exciting. The new theater wont be done until Nov. 20th. I don't know how I am going to wait 3 weeks without hearing it. I was almost ready to order a VTF-15H and on a whim I emailed Tom. He was super fast to respond, very professional, and sent me several emails over a couple of days. I think that the XV15 would have done the job for me but the value for the $ on the XV30 was too good to pass up. biggrin.gif

I ordered the down firing model. It definitely lit the fire under my hiney to finish installing the low voltage wiring and get moving on the drywall. I wont be able to put it in place until after carpet is installed on the 20th though mad.gif

The earliest versions of the XS15 and XV15 included the large "base". We continue to offer this version mainly for anyone who has one of the "base" models and decides to add a second at some point. This way they can have matching pairs.

Send me an email at support, we have some little rubber pads we can send out that has solved this with the couple instances we have encountered.

Hi Alan,

Sorry for the confusion. We really do need to find time to update the site and make things a bit more clear. We offer 5% for a dual subwoofer purchase. And if anyone purchases a single unit and an identical model within 6 months, we discount the price on the second unit 10%. This gives the same overall pricing.(as the "dual" discount). We also offer 5% for returning customers. B-stocks in the outlet center are also normally discounted at 5%. Unfortunately we cannot "stack" these discounts (so someone ends up with 10 or 15% total discount). We strive to keep our everyday pricing as aggressive as possible. That, combined with the much higher cost involved in keeping everything *Made in USA* , definitely limits us in terms of big discounts/sales.

Thanks for clarifying that, Tom. I'm more than happy with my quad XS15s at the price I paid! IMO, they're worth much more! smile.gif

There is a sweet spot these subs like to be set at...if they are not set in this window, then you are missing substantial output. This is just my experience from trying every combination of settings possible. I can say for a fact that if ones room is less than 3000^3 and you are not getting bone jarring, vision blurring, ear popping bass out of a parir of xv15's, then they are not setup correctly.

How many XV15's it took for you to feel the bass in movies & music to beat you up? lol

Hi. I just found out about PSA when reading a review about the Paradigm Sub One. So I'm new to PSA. Looked on ther web site and everything seems cool.

I'm a Dan of subs with a port because when I've heard sealed vs port the port always sounds deeper. Not freq. just the sound itself. Kind of like in my room if I stand in the center of the room my sub sounds how it does. But I move to a corner it's deeper and sounds like a ported sub. The sealed sub in the corner to me sounds like if I stand in center of room with ported sub in corner. Anyway this is just how I hear sealed and ported. I can tell a difference and prefer the ported sub.

So I'm glad to see PSA has dual driver ported subs. I've wanted a dual driver sub for long time. Right now I have an SVS PC12+ from several years ago. The 525 watt model. It's in my front right corner.

When I saw the PSA XV30b or whatever, I don't get why so many models are listed for the same thing at different prices. I loved what I saw and read. It's almost identical to the SVS PB12+/2. I wanted that many years ago.

I'm wondering how the XV30 might compare to my PC12+? And I'm hoping to be able to get an XV30 next year.

I don't believe the C stock to be necessarily cosmetic damage...it's the products that were returned so guys could upgrade through the buy back. Also, the C stock's warranty was 4 years versus 5.

An XS30 might even be better if it is a sealed room.
