Yeah 2 used XV15's and the DT's. Craigslist. This guy has been trying to unload them for a few months...I guess no one local enough to pick them up. He apparently has JTR Captivators so no need for these XV's. Lucky me, in that case.

When I say that "Unforeseen Circumstances" delayed the measurements, I bruised my ribs a couple week ago and still can't lift anything easily. I'll be dragging it out of the basement and outside next week to get those done, with a lot of help moving it.

If you add the second one within one year of the initial purchase it is $799($100 discount).

LS1tech? Getting all fancy now are we..

Well I was pleased with my XS30se until tonight...Played Tron Legacy for the first time with a sub. I was no longer pleased, but absolutely speechless. In an incredibly dead room, I was feeling a lot. The couch was shaking and I finally had my upstairs roommates (I'm in a basement) complain that I was "shaking the entire house".

Hope I made the right choice ... the free shipping both ways to audition the sub, the fact that XS15se is a 15" sub (vs. 12" or 10"), and Tom's advice, sold me.

My basement is 18ft wide x 28ft long x 8.5ft high. Screen is on the width side. Also, a 15ft opening to right of the right-front speaker (to upstairs). My current 7.1 speaker setup is: Pioneer SP-FS52 towers (fronts), SP-BS22-LR (surrounds) and SW-8 (subwoofer). I'm hoping the XS15se will be a massive improvement over the SW-8 .


how can we chat with Tom ?

any url .. where in on the website.. is chat option ?

TIA

Well, if anyone is slightly disappointed in their XV-15...for a year and a half..while living in a 700sq/ft apartment and a house; and if you are also using an Oppo BDP-103 as a pre-amp for unimpeded clear sound. Just dont....nix the Oppo

go buy a receiver or legit preamp. What an enormous difference. (just purchased a Pioneer VSX-924)

With the oppo, I had to trip the Sub to +4 to even get a respectable level of bass from the XV-15. Now, trim is set to -8 and I am still worried about the neighbors getting upset.

My cat also does not like relaxing on the sub anymore.

Whew.

You would get a lot more midbass. That would be a great question for Tom. I know there are a few guys that use an xv15 with an xs30 and say its great.

I've asked this before and the response I got was that you would need REW and a USB mic to dial it in properly. Even then there would be no guarantee it would be a seamless integration.

Receiver - Denon
Speakers - Klipsch

best to stick with sealed+sealed or vented+vented with our products. You CAN make vented+sealed work and perhaps work very well. But, barring rare exceptions, you will be better off sticking to similar subs.

You would've upgraded in a week or two anyway...

Being paranoid in this day and age is probably a good thing. You can't be too careful. Either one of you could be taken for a ride.

Welcome to the fold my brother. I can't wait to hear your thoughts. I would love to be a fly on your wall when you get them set up and crankin'...

You'll get extension down to the 4hz to 7hz range with just *tons* of mid and upper bass slam factor. You'd probably be looking at 112-115dB all the way down to 10hz....mid and upper bass headroom? 121-127dB.

Which extension mode are you using with the 1ex?

exactly right on the upgrade. That's also why I just went with 2 right off the bat. I know me. this is what I am eventually going to do...just get it over with. This way my wife doesn't have to listen to me talk (to myself) about it for that whole week before I upgrade anyway.

Considering my room is less than 1600cu.ft, i'm hoping for some literal "heart pounding action", as 'they' say... haha

At 1600 cu ft, you're going to get quite the experience.

I hear you on that one. My room is 4300+ cu ft and opens into a large two story foyer on one side. I still get impressive bass at my listening positions. I have pushed 118 dB at -7 dB on the dial... 13 feet away from my subs.
