You are correct sir but at the time it was an emergency purchase (my old sub died) and now I have $400 credit on my next purchase. Last time I check PSA didn't have a sub that inexpensive. biggrin.gif

Those are my current subs, I just updated my signature. The journey has been much longer smile.gif

The Denon X4000 has both XT32 and SubEQ HT and can independently measure and calibrate two subwoofers.

Yes. Give JD of AVS sales a call and ask about pricing for a Denon AVR 4520ci.

The room is 21x12.5x9, but no seal around the door or heavy door like I have seen in a friends HT. I have done a fair amount of research and unfortunately there are multiple positions for/against sealed vs ported. I am at the point I just need to chose.

Dual XS30's should work amazing in that room. From what I hear XT32 with SubEQ HT is the bees knees. I have yet to hear any complaints about the X4000.

Just saying, according to Data-Bass, from 40Hz to 125Hz, not counting any room gain or mutual coupling, the FV15HP is reference capable. It even out performs the SVS PB13-Ultra from >25Hz. confused.gif

(I'm not knocking the XS30 because I love the XS30)

And your point is? The FV15HP 40-63hz averages 119db, The XS30 40-63hz averages 122db. We discussed all this stuff before Bee...you were concerned with sub 20hz output in your largish room. The FV15HP was the best choice to solve your concern. If you wanted more mid bass output both the XS30 and F25 are superior to the FV15HP.

Not saying we didn't discuss the points you mention, I don't remember discussing 40-63Hz output as I can't find data to this point but I do remember my concerns regarding <20Hz output. The concern I remember was that it would take so many XS30s to obtain the output levels I was looking for.

(i'm asking a question and not trying to comment about another manufacture's product line)

Where can I find the max output averages for the XS30? Apparently I need a refresher course. tongue.gif

The concern I remember was sub 20hz extension and output. Go back thru those posts and I am positive I mentioned the XS30 and F25 would have more output above 30hz. You did not seem to mind that as again your focus was on 10hz extension with good output. Apparently you need more then a refresher course because the cea2010 data is on PSA's website. The XS30 has 6db more output in the 40-63hz range over a XV15.

So I asked a question in a different thread about what are the frequencies for a chest thump. A couple answers came back with 40-80 and 60-100. So if that is what I am looking for, maybe the XS30 would be my better choice between that and the FV15HP. Either way one or two of either should beat my PB12NSD.

Chest thump is mid bass related, centered around the 60-100hz range. The XS30 will indeed give you more slam factor...keep in mind both subs have plenty of it so I would not be to concerned with which has more. If you have a smallish sized room go sealed, if you have a large room go ported.

I have thought about that and getting rid of my Outlaw 7125. However, the reviews in HT Magazine show have many AVR lose power output and you use more channels. The 7125 didn't really lose to much. In fact it had more power than advertised with 2 channels driven. Right under 180 instead of 125. That's why I am only driving my mains from it. The 4520 is a couple generations old now too isn't it?

Size is one of those relative things, my room isn't sealed but the cubic volume is about 2300. 21x12.5x9 with a rear riser.

The 4520ci is the current generation and won't be replaced until at the earliest, the end of 2014. As to power, it's rated for four ohm and is Denon's flagship receiver, all channels driven, 125w/channel.

I just recently ordered a 4520ci from JD of AVS sales (it should arrive Tuesday next week) and all I can say online is, he has a "SUPER" screaming good deal going right now and you would be well served giving him a call.

My next plan for my setup.

1) Get two more Outlaw mono amps for my surround speakers. Or get one 2 ch amp for them. I want at least 200 wpc. However, I'm thinking of going with a 5 channel amp for a future 7.2 set up.
2) I am waiting for the A5rx-c to come out, so I can complete my 7.1 / 7.2 set up.
3) I want a new AVR with subwoofer EQ.

4) How to convince my wife that I need all that stuff. biggrin.gif

Well, despite some of the controversy over PSA in some of these threads I pulled the trigger and ordered 2, XS30s today. It was these or the Rythmic FV15HP. I don't need all that more super low end. My PB12NSD already makes my door in my HT rattle during the hand grenade scene in World War Z. smile.gif I want more chest thump which I have heard is the higher sub frequencies.

Hope I can balance them without a Denon X4000.

Thanks to Tom at PSA and some of the forum members for their advice.

Grats on pulling the trigger.  Those subs look pretty amazing, and a pretty unique setup at the price point.  Cant wait to see a good in depth AH type review on those things.  The advertised 30-80Hz output looks pretty insane.  Actually, they just look pretty insane everywhere.

Congrats! On the XS30 purchase!

I have a decibel/output question for you all.

If adding a second sub adds 6db, does that double, triple or quadruple the output of one sub.

JTR (3 215 RT, 5 212HTR, 2 Growlers, 4 S2's)
PSA (4 Triax's, 3 210T's)
Behringer (4 B1200 Midbass Modules)

I have been talking back and forth with Tom at PSA as well. He is going out of his way to help me majorly.

I purchased my Martin Logan motion 12s from a local audio store about 2 years ago. I had them playing the Korn bluray concerns at reference level and smoke started to come out the top haha. I take them to the store and the guy says oh no these can't be played at that level you need these. Well the same place that sold them told me they could years back.

Anyways it's hard to find good people these days and Tom over at PSA has been great so far for me. I will be picking a sub up from him soon. Probably first a xv15 and might add a second depending on how it sounds.
