I have not compared them specifically, nor have I seen anyone do a direct comparison. Based on my experience with the pb12-nsd vs xv15se, coupled with the measurements I've seen of the pb12+ vs xv15se, I suspect the xv15se may qualify as a slight upgrade in max clean output and 'musicality' as compared to pb12+. The 12+ may dig deeper though, and also has the variable tuning. Overall I would say they are too close to consider one a significant upgrade over the other.

Again this is just my opinion based on my research prior to buying my xv15se's. For me it came down to cost, and the xv15se is an excellent value imo. If I already had a 12+ I would not trade for an xv15se unless maybe for space considerations (xv15se is shockingly compact for the level of output ). Some of these other guys are much more knowledgable than I am though, and I will defer to them.

I think our resident member Raynist might have owned both. He has owned several Svs and PSA subs(although not the XV15SE version...original version...I do believe) and likely best qualified to answer your question....TV might be another one.....

Ray though...usually pops in form time to time and could discuss things further or just shoot him a PM...he'll give you an honest reply either way.

Order one and see for yourself. PSA has free shipping both ways this summer, so it's a no risk endeavor.

The only way to know for sure is to compare in your own room with your own ears.

It would kill him to know that he is the reason I bought an XV15. When I was sub shopping last winter, I was all set to go with an SVS PB-2000 when I noticed shadyj ranting about how bad PSA subs are in another thread. Quite a few other people chimed in to defend PSA and when someone noted that the XV15 was $800, I figured it was worth checking out. Now I am very happy with my XV15SE, so thank you shadyj.

Thanks for reminding me about Titan AE! I watched it the other night and it sounds awesome with my XV15SE.

It has been said before, but I would also like to chime in and say that if anyone is on the fence about upgrading from the XV15 to the XV15SE, go for it. You will not be disappointed.

Depends on which PB12. The PB12+ dsp w/ sledge will have a advantage around the 16-25hz region, but the XV15se will have more from 40-125hz where it will probably match or exceed the PB13U. Also take note the XV15se is actually smaller so that is where it gives up a slight bit in ultra low bass and if you limit thd to 10% during ground plane testing they are probably really close. The PB12+ is no slouch so no I do not see the XV15se being a huge upgrade. Now if you sell the PB12+ dsp for 1200.00 and purchase a pair of XV15se for 1600.00, then yes that will be a upgrade.

That sounds good I have the Pb12+ with the bash amp 525 watts I have it paired up with my Triax but have it way lower than the Triax I use the pb12 for near field in back of couch. The one thing I dont like about the pb12 is that it is front ported. Back ported sounds better to me when it hits the wall.

I had a PB12+ with the Bash amp at the same time I had the XV15's. From what I remember they were very similar with the PB12+ digging a bit deeper in 16hz tune.

I know I posted about them somewhere at the beginning of this thread. Here are some comparison pictures.

I'm considering the Yamaha RA -A1040, I have a dealer friend who tells me that of all the lines of receivers he sells the Yamahas are the most reliable feature set receivers he has come across and he has been a an authorized dealer for many years. I was all set on the Onkyo TX-NR1010 but was soon discouraged from that receiver because of the many complaints of failure. I have had nothing but Onkyo for 15 years and have not had a problem at all, I really like the XT32 SUB EQ HT though. His company has not sold sold Onkyo for the last four years because of the above mentioned problems.
Thanking about selling my EMO XPA 3, 42 months of warranty left and also my ATI 602 amp, this little amp can drive anything down to 2 Ohms, amazing build quality. I also have tons of cable for sale, mostly ICs and digital coaxial etc.. I'll post later. Also have a 5.0 Pioneer setup for sale soon SP 22s and matching center SC22 and BS41s, I will almost give these away.

They haven't sold Onkyo because they are biasing the customers. Onkyo really hasn't had any higher failure rates than most other manufacturers in the past few years. I'd say from the 1009/3009/5009 timeframe and forward. The recent versions of Onkyo's don't have the high failure rates of the past models. Most were HDMI board failures and were replaced in and out of warranty.

Don't get me wrong, Onkyo had a bad run. Every major company has their issues.

Yamaha makes some good receivers too, but Audyssey was the selling point for the Onkyo. YPAO is okay, but I don't care much for it. It seems a little basic. You will be happy with either, but you may have that nagging question of "what if I had Audyssey MultEQ XT32" in the back of your mind...

You have to take the good and the bad. Talk to some more Onkyo owners, visit some review sites from consumers (Amazon, NewEgg, Crutchfield) and take the top and bottom ten percent and ignore them. The rest are probably fairly accurate.

I can say I love my Yamaha 773. I am sure the Aventage line from the 10xx series n up are very solid. Remember you can always use a mini dsp or dirac live for sub eq. There is also a good chance that setup would end up doing a better job being you can taylor it to your prefrences.

What was the last yamaha you owned? The new Yamahas with the latest Ypao are far from basic my friend. The 30 & 40 series even have a dynamic eq feature just like Audyssey and a host of other features. The new 3040 has dual sub eq, dynamic eq, R.S.C., multi 8 point measurement and more...

It has been a while. I can't remember the model number. It didn't have HDMI. I don' think it was YPAO that it had. From what I remember, it only did distance and gain.

That sounds about right. In max output mode the XV15se would have a little edge in output with extension being similar in most rooms. If you lower the plus down to 16hz mode it would dig deeper but you'll lose another dB or so of output. In a side-side comparison I'd expect the Xv15se to be preferred. I'm obviously biased but we have also had a half dozen or so customers reinforce this in their own comparisons. However, going from a plus to a XV15se probably won't seem like a huge day/night upgrade or anything like that.

Is this going to be something you use in the same room as your Triax? If so, there are better choices than the XV15se. The XS30se for example..

Yes it will be paired with the Triax in my room. I am still going to get the second Triax but first I want to upgrade the pb12+ I just feel like I mite damage it if I go higher on volume. I need something to keep up with the Triax.

Neither sub will keep up with the Triax is what Tom is trying to say. Both will be on the limiter well before the Triax.

Triax is a sealed sub right? If money is tight I would think even the xs15se might be a better choice for this than xv15se. Yes/no?

Can't refute that one bit! Do any of you guys have an idea how the triax stacks up against something like the Submersive or Captivator? I know they are all in a similar price range and likely devastate just about any room they are in.

And the phase shifts...oh the horror!

Actually in a room as small as Robert's some deep bass cancellation might not be the end of the world. IIRC he was relating how his neighbors have been complaining. The neighbors ACROSS the street!

Ask Ray.

I have the equivalent of about 4 Triax pounding in the office right now just punishing our building with some bassy music. And I was looking around to see what else I could move in here by myself. We all have those days..

Oh I can imagine Tom....if I was surrounded by subwoofers like I imagine you are all day, I'd have to have an intervention.

Who's Ray??

Equivalent of four Triax's, but not four Triax's themselves... Interesting.....

Probably just a slight bit less output then a Cap S2 but more then a SubM HP.
