haha...sort of

paintball wasn't really a hobby, we played internationally, all my gear was free as was all my travel expenses. all extra gear given to us was given with sole purpose for us to sell and keep the profits as "payment" to play....not too shabby...I am now 1 year retired (too much time away from family)

in case your interested....here is an interview I did, when we first turned pro:

Ha! thanks for taking the time to read it smile.gif thanks it was a fun journey...too bad it doesnt get the same recognition as major sports...but still felt like a rockstar at all those events (even though it was only like 3000 spectators as opposed to 40,000)

Personally, I have a clue what it takes to rise to competitive levels and a tip of my hat to all who choose to go there.

(I'm not a competitive personality because I pretty much suck at everything)

Congrats Brian!

As someone else who is seriously trying to decide between one or two XS30's, I'm very much looking forward to your opinions of the before (one XS30) and after (two XS30's). I have feeling that I already know the answer, but it's still nice to hear it from the person that has experienced it. wink.gif

Way to go Brian. I know you will enjoy the dual XS30s. I am really liking my dual XV15s more and more for both music and movies. I just watched The Incredibles in bluray and there is some really good LFE in that movie. I now have both subs on Auralex risers.

How would you compare them to the PB12+ that you had ?

I would have to say that I like the sound of having dual XV15s better compared to having one SVS PB12-plus. Now if I had dual PB12 pluses then I might feel differently. Dual subs have made a definite impression on me.smile.gif

The PB12+ is a highly regarded sub, so its nice to hear the XV15's sound great.

Congrats Brian! I have a question for you. With the single XS30, I can localize the sub fairly easily. Do you have this issue at all? I am sure for my situation this is due to the near field placement. I'm just curious if you have any localization issues and if the dual subs completely cancels that out. Congrats again and cool article about the paintball! Are you into firearms at all?

Asking obvious questions, is your crossover set to 80Hz? And if so, have you tried 60Hz?

Bee, I have tried both and neither seem to fix the issue. I am not sure if it is just because the pressure seems to all come from one side (currently my left side). It doesn't occur at the higher frequencies but anything below 40-50 I can localize.

Thabks man!

And no I don't get any localization. I use 80hz xover for all speakers.

And of course I will be reporting back on the difference after adding a second. With graphs and all.

But no I am not into fire arms

Well, being able to use one's body to localize pressure waves, my understanding, is part of the human condition. Some people are more sensitive to these sorts of issues over others. Lucky you. tongue.gif Reads like you'll soon have a second or third XS30 in your life.

The sooner we give into these issues, the sooner we can get our credit cards paid off. tongue.gif

Bee, I guess I must be sensitive like you said wink.gif. I have always had to place near field so I am sure that has quite a bit to do with it as well. Unfortunately dual subs is not in my immediate financial future but I will try and put it on my long term goal list along with a house with a dedicated theater room wink.gif

Yes, it's frightening the further we get from our subs.

...tongue.gif...biggrin.gif

(sorry, it read kinda funny. sorta like, today, I'm ten feet from my sub. Yesterday I couldn't bear to be more than five feet away from my sub)

(I'm around the corner from my subwoofer. Every five minutes or so, I get up to make sure the cat hasn't moved it)

(please forgive my warped sense of humor. I've spent a lifetime working on it and failed)

As one gets older, the less serious they take themselves where in the end they come across as totally retro.

(sorry if it was that lame.....but I found it cute)

If I switch one of my XS30's off I can localize the sub, the second I switch the other sub on it completely goes away.

Thanks JBrown, that's what I figured. Maybe someday I'll get another, along with new mains, and a Denon X4000...okay I'll keep dreaming wink.gif

Yeah I'm also considering picking up a Denon X4000 to use as a pre/pro. Man it never stops, I think I've spend over 7k on new upgrades this year and I still need to buy my new AT screen rolleyes.gif

Hi walke108, might try playing with the sub distance and/or phase control setting if you haven't done so.

Thanks JChin, I will try that. What kind of effect would the phase and distance setting have on localization? I'm assuming if it's out of phase it would be more localized?

My guess is maybe the sub distance is set too close to the other speakers. Maybe the sub is hitting your ears before all the other speakers, like overpower them.
