If not, I would highly recommend the extended warranty.

Here is the info about the coverage extension: Onkyo acknowledges failed units and extending warrranties until 2018
Thanks Zeus, I just checked mine at the site and it is not defective. I have used two 200mm fans since I bought all of my Onkyo receivers drawing the heat from the top cover of chassis and no over heating issues what so ever. I really am considering the TX-NR1010 as it has everything I need and the price keeps dropping, it's a fifty pound receiver and I've always equated weight with quality, that may sound stupid to most but I like a little meat with my potatoes Thanks again for the link.

Nah...I have zero issues with mfgs partaking in other owners threads if there happens to be some sort of mis-information being discussed about their product in any comparison.

I'm sure Tom or Jim would do the same if something of that nature was pointed out to them.

Just a few days ago we had a gentlemen who was contemplating picking up dual Rythmik FV15HP's. He currently has dual XS30's. Anyhow the conversation ended up shifting to how he could ensure his subs were dialed in properly, so that he was getting the best possible sound out of his PSA subs. Point being it was on the Rythmik thread and nobody cared or took offense. We all have the same goal at the end of the day no matter what brand of subwoofer we go with. That's to sit back and enjoy clean LFE.

What information did you correct? You mentioned how thick the baffle of your sub is but did not address how thick the rest of the sides were. Cableguy said .75 thick, which appears to be true. I commented that is probably just fine with the proper amount of bracing.

Cheers Jeff
Since you have a MiniDSP, you should set the phase to "0" on both your subs and time-align them with the MiniDSP.

Phase only aligns the subs at one frequency, time-aligning works at all frequencies.

I know a lot of folks are not to keen on Onkyo but I have never had a problem with any of mine. I'm looking at the 929 and 1010 both have XT32 and are in the $900 range. TIA
Cheers Jeff
Since you have the ability to set distance (delay) to your subs separately with the MiniDSP, the only thing you will gain from XT32 is the additional bass EQ filters. From all reports (I don't have 32), it's well worth it. Only you can decide if it's worth it to you.

The HDMI on your laptop is OUT.

Vista 8.1 is fine.

You're getting the MiniDSP 2x4 with the 2-Way Advanced plug-in, correct? You can do up to 4 subs with that setup (more if you split the signal out).

Cheers Jeff
Don't know what your current speakers are, but aren't you planning on getting the new PSA speakers? From what Tom said, they're going to be on the high-end as far as sensitivity goes....I say sell the amps, you won't need 'em.

Hmmm....if you swapped phase on both subs, you should be exactly where you started.

Adjusting the variable phase knob on the sub amp is for getting the subs in phase with each other. You should use the distance setting in your AVR to then get both subs in phase with the mains.

If both subs are roughly equidistant to the MLP, no phase adjustment should be necessary. It's only when the subs are not equidistant to the MLP that adjusting phase comes into play.

You do not need that if you are going to use REW being it has all the tones you could ever need.

Jeff, you really need to learn REW...seriously . I am willing to bet if you would of put the time in with it a few months ago, you could of had those quad XV15's placed around the room and sounding great. You took the easy way out by stacking them and did not like the looks. Now you are full circle. Get a plan together and stick with it already.

Oh really? So then what is the point of reversing sub phase with just a single sub set up? This is a legit question as I guess I misunderstood what is happening.

Also, somehow it sounds very different, noticeably louder and more in sync. I don't think this is listening bias either since, as I mentioned before, I've messed with phase on previous subs and saw no change ever. Guess I'll have to look into this.

Where are your subs located in your room??

You may have gotten the subs more in phase with your mains by doing what you did, but the correct way is to adjust the sub distance setting in your AVR.

By adjusting the phase between the 2 subs you are basically time-aligning them with each other, albeit the "poor mans" way. The correct way is with some sort of outboard processing (i.e. Mini DSP).

The best way to do both of the above is by making changes and measuring the results with REW....but you probably already know that.

REW does work better, there are more options for tones that are sent via HDMI and you can measure the responses rather than listen to them.

However, you can right click on any of the files and save to a disc as an mp3.

I want to thank Alan, BH and climber for all the great info, what I need to do is get my head out of my a** and start working on my setup. I am planning on the getting the PSA speakers but it's going to be a while yet. It's discouraging as my speakers are the weak link right now as I've sold all my speakers (11) and I'm using some inexpensive monitors. Right now I'm really concerned with getting my dual XS30SEs dialed in and decide if I want to try the third, I'm not realizing the full potential of these subs as I've done no measurements except with an SPL meter and I know they are much more capable than what I'm experiencing now. I don't give anything a chance, I probably had one of the best subwoofer setups with the four XV15SEs but was too lazy to dial them in and like you said BH I just took the easy way out and made duals out of Quads by stacking. My new laptop will here tomorrow and I will be contacting Jim to order the miniDSP and UMIK and the appropriate plug in (2.1 advanced) correct? I really want to do this guys and am counting on your help, I'm tired of shipping subs and selling them. Is it possible to concentrate on just my subs for now with REW and tools, that is my main concern, I really want to dial them in and see what I'm hearing and let you guys see it as well. I have ethernet cables, HDMI and USB as well, what else do I need to complete the REW DSP and UMIK combo. Am I seeing correctly on the PSA site that the power supply for the mini is included or do I even need a power supply? Thanks Guys for putting up with me all this time. So please help me get my subs dialed in at least for now, and then I (we) will work on the speakers, I may as well dial in the one's I have now and then do it all over again with the new PSA models. THANK SO MUCH, I need to gain some confidence, after all I'm not an idiot but this REW and measuring really has me intimidated. Thanks Alan for the download of REW link, that's all I need to do for now correct? OK, I'll be back. I would love to get that third XS30SE behind my MLP but I can't even get two placed in identical corners the same distance to the PLP right let alone three...............
Sincerely, Jeffrey

Yes, we include a 5V USB power supply. Here is a pic for those interested. You can even use to charge your cell phone.

Yep thats what I mentioned to Tom to use when we were discussing the minindsp a few weeks ago. I ran into ground loop hum when wiring a 12v power source to the mini. Using the USB side worked much better(no hum)!! Nice Job incorporating that with the MiniDSP into a subwoofer package!! PSA is doing great things!!

Thanks Basshead81. Tom and I wanted to offer a complete solution (mic, miniDSP, and power supply) to make things easier on everyone. Our price may seem a little high when compared to buying direct from miniDSP, but it is very close when you factor in the power supply and shipping.

So I know there are a few Denon X4000 owners here. My question is, would you consider a Refurbed X4000 for 700.00 with manufacturer warranty a good deal?

You may have gotten the subs more in phase with your mains by doing what you did, but the correct way is to adjust the sub distance setting in your AVR.

By adjusting the phase between the 2 subs you are basically time-aligning them with each other, albeit the "poor mans" way. The correct way is with some sort of outboard processing (i.e. Mini DSP).

The best way to do both of the above is by making changes and measuring the results with REW....but you probably already know that.
My subs are located at FR and FL with my mains, and are within inches of the same distance from MLP. Did some quick reading and most things appear to match my understanding - the phase on the sub is there to align with the speakers, which will require different settings in every room. Can you provide a link that shows what you are talking about? It appears to me it's more than just aligning subs

In Canada I literally just bought one over the weekend for $929 plus tax (new). Not sure what that means price wise down south (I assume you're American, could be wrong though )
