I used the fix option on two of the photos and didn't on the other two, it's the camera flash, they are identical. Still haven't fired them up yet though, they are exactly the same distance of my front L&R subs to the MLP,

Having the second sub has really helped room response.

Hey Kazz, nice setup my man, just a quick observation, don't you think you would get better results with you center channel speaker if you were to move it so the front baffle is an inch or so over the front of your ET stand edge. I'm not being critical just wondering.
Cheers Jeff

If I hadn't done that I would probably still have my first two along with another two.

No criticism taken, it used to be at the front when the tv was down on the et unit, I moved it back when I wall mounted the tv and it sounded horrendous lol. I have it angled upwards a few degrees now and that has made all the difference, it sounds just like it used to.
Cheers, Karen.

Wow four 18" drivers, must sound great.


The only way I'd be able to fit 4 subs in here would be to stack them.

I think this is something he recently started doing. Been a while since he tested the FV15.

The XS-15se did a nice job in room as well with >100dB at 10hz.

The guys on the DIY forums did not believe I was hitting 100 dB at 10 Hz with my single XS30. Guess this puts things in perspective. How far up do you expect the XS30se to be over the XS15 Tom, 3-5? I bet duals with the new drivers would have been 110+ in my room.

The XS30se is being reviewed by someone else(rather than Josh). We might get Josh one before the end of the year too.

Probably 2.5 to 3.5dB outside. Hard to say how that translates into in-room with the variable but I'd expect around 3, maybe 4dB.

I think Josh's room is around 3500(?) cu-ft so it isn't exactly "uncommonly small" or anything.

Tough call on the DIY comments. At times some put too much weight on some sim they have----particularly with regards to unconfirmed "xmax" and how that relates to real world displacement..

XS30se just got here. So far somewhat impressed. That being said, I just plug and played it to test. Need to actually do a full setup and configuration to optimize.

Summer of Bass

With PSA's new Summer of bass promotion I think I'm gonna try The XV15se and compare it to my SVS PC12 Plus. Has anybody compared the two?

We had several PC+ and PB+ owners compare the non XV15 to them with favorable comments. Do you have the new 800w version or the older 525w version? Also, which output mode are you using(how many ports open?)

Thanks for responding Tom! I have the 800w version. All ports open. I tried all ports sealed and only liked it for music but not movies. I never tried the 16hz.

You'll have similar extension, but I'd guess the XV15se to have around 2-3dB more clean output. Sound quality sound be close but I'd give the edge to the XV15se. Overall, I wouldn't expect a huge "day/night" type of difference but I bet you prefer the XV15se----particularly with your favorite music.

I would definitely be interested in your feedback if you do compare these two---I bet many others would be as well.

I really couldn't tell any difference between 16 and 20hz tune. Like you though I thought there was a noticeable improvement with music in sealed mode but it lacked somewhat with movies.
