I should just walk away from this forum for a few months. This is why I stopped going to slickguns, rctech, ls1tech, and many, many others...I suffer from consumerism with a big ol' side of upgradeitis. it's serious, doc.
Random question, does PSA do any black friday stuff? Or any ID for that matter?
I have had 0 hits on my "3.2 Phase 2; SW upgrade", aka 'which sw(s) should I buy' in the main sw forum...and I've read about 60-80 pages of this thread. I am no closer to an answer now than I was when I started...but I have learned a great deal haha.
For me, I think it really does come down to PSA...
There are 2 XV15's for sale fairly local to me (~3hours round trip) for 1k. I really want to get these, but my upgradeitis says to just get 2 new XV15se's...at which point my upgradeitis says to just get a single XS30se and then get another one later. Any of these will be an upgrade from current dual dayton 1200's. I just can't seem to get my head around the return on investment from the XV15 @1k vs XV15se @1700 (or 1500 if I can work out the internals swap).
Ultimately, I just have to make a decision...but my Fear of Missing out (FOMO) combined with my upgradeitis is killing me. Maybe I get the 2 used...upgrade them...buy another new...have 3. lol it never ends. I'm going to bed.
I would like to say there is an insane amount of good information on this thread alone and thanks to everyone for their input, knowledge, & time. This site is good stuff...and also the reason I don't have a soundbar quality HT anymore...
