Fedex delivered my Hsu VTF-15H and were very good about it. I was home and the driver even helped me carry it into my house (which they are not supposed to do) since it was February in Minnesota and my wife is tiny smile.gif

UPS... Well I ordered a playset for the kids and one UPS driver driving a freight truck shows up and was literally cursing about how heavy it was and asked me what he was supposed to do to try and get it off the truck... I am not a small guy so I got rather pissed off and told him it was his job and that I was happy to help out but that he clearly should have had another UPS employee helping him. They know the weight and size before they left the UPS warehouse, and that cursing at me was the wrong answer. He shut his mouth and we unloaded it off the truck with me doing all the heavy lifting..

Im kind of lucky when it comes to UPS delivery, the delivery guy lives 3 houses away from me. :-)
He puts stuff on the deck around the back of my house. Fedex has also been decent for me, Purolator is the one that I dont like. I would rather it be delivered by bicycle courier over Purolator.....

On phone w/FEDEX now to get the driver to come back.

While I've had decent luck with them in my area, I would be smokin pissed if I left work early and they pulled that. In this area if you do miss them
you can still pick up same day at their terminal. Hope things work out better for you tomorrow.

I've had good luck with both FedEx and UPS. I have most of my stuff delivered to my office, I have a good relationship with both drivers. Luck to have the same one with FedEx for a few years and the same two or three with UPS. My dual XS-30's arrived via freight and that driver was great too. Helped me unload and kept saying, looks like you bought yourself some nice stereo equipment. I just said yes I did. He kept saying, man those speakers must be nice

Have you downloaded, installed and played with REW or any other room analyzing program? You know you want to. tongue.gif

I don't have the soundcard needed to do that. But I don't have the capability to calibrate bass anyway (YPAO).

The XS30 has arrived unscathed.
My immediate response to seeing it was a fit of laughter at the sheer audacity of the thing. Everything about it is BIG. Those drivers are insane. No photos would do it any justice. Sitting next to it, the top is at the level of my shoulders.
Fortunately I bought a $30 handtruck, and 8' tie-downs with metal buckles at The HD. Leaving the grills off, I secured it with one strap, using a towel to protect the finish. I just wheeled it right into place.
After matching its volume with the Magnepans and M&K, all was ready.
I listened to Steely Dan's "Peg" first, and the difference was dramatic. I never understood "speed" in relationship to bass until today when I heard details in the bass I never knew existed. The kick drum was tight and intense.
I then listened to Blues Traveler's "Hook". That's when I noticed that the concrete slab my house is built on was banging on my feet.
The entire house is pressurized by the bass. Our living room is open on one side to the rest of the 2000sf house. And in the past bass would just get lost. You could find it by standing in various corners. But in the living room itself, it was like the bass would just disappear.
Now, and this is no exaggeration, it seems like the walls should be flexing. And this is simply with music, straight out of the box. I can't wait to put in some metal, jazz, and classical (Telarc 1812 Overture anyone?), let alone Cloverfield or War of the Worlds!

I should be listening more right now, but I felt it my duty to give you my first impression. I know there are alot of folks out there waiting to receive an expensive piece of equipment based on very little customer feedback, and the reputation of the company founder. I can say confidently that you have made the right decision with Power Sound Audio.

It definitely is. Saw my neighbor today, he asked "what the hell did you order that showed up on a freight truck?" I told him it was two subwoofers. He said how big are they that they needed to be shipped via freight? Brought him in the house and showed him, he thinks I'm nuts, but he wants to come over to hear them this weekend.

Dual XV-15 Impressions:

Ok, here goes.

Delivery/Packaging:
Ok, if you have read the last two pages, you saw my growing disdain for FEDEX. After a long drive to the nearest distribution center, i had these bad boys loaded onto my Jeep Comanche and wrapped in plastic (hey, it rains a lot here). Of course, as soon as I began driving, the plastic got caught in the wind, nearly flew off, and I spent the rest of the drive with my arm out the wear window holding it down. Whatever, it worked. Dont judge me smile.gif Anyways, had to make a pit stop at blockbuster on the way home to grab some movies, and made my way to the house.



My Bass buddy Leo. He is sure to let me know when the bass gets too intense... by running to guard another room in the house. Good dog.


Unloading these things by myself sucked. We'll just leave it at that. Opening them up, I discovered that they had, in fact, packaged these extremely well. Nothing special, but heavy duty foam on the four corners; No damage. i proceeded to unload them.



Appearance:
I really like the finish. Its a mix between the satin finish of my old Klipsch Sub-12 and the bumpy truck bed look of the ED sub. like a fine sandpaper. There were a few inconsistencies though (example pictured). The raised bump you see there is actually quite sharp when sliding your hand across it.




Sound:
Meh. Yeah. I know. And i really don't blame the sub woofer. I blame the bass-sucking cavern that is my house, and the terrible calibration of my Yamaha receiver. As usual it calibrate the XV-15s to -10db, which barely registered on the hearing scale. Sadly, I have the gain on the amp set to 3 o'clock, and the receiver set to +3 db. Just to hear my house quake.This probably sounds all wrong, but it is how I have to set it to get the best sound. I did the sub crawl and all! Just a terrible terrible room and seating position.


I spent a good hour moving them around the room, trying different spots.

Interestingly, As I sit in my office (this room I am typing in), an adjacent room, the bass is huge and fantastic. Really awesome actually. It wouldn't make any sense to move my sub in here though.

I am moving in two weeks anyways. Le sigh.

Overall, with what I am experiencing, these subs are an Awesome addition to my home theater. My overall review is not one of dissatisfaction at all. But...as of now, even with duals, I am not getting the "holy crap it makes my heart hurt" feeling many of you are describing. I will continue to tweak over the next few weeks.

Oh, also, unlike my ED. I am getting a nasty, but quiet pop sound each time I change sources, fast forward chapters, change from stereo to surround, etc.. getting annoying.

Also don't forget, PSA amps aren't as sensitive as other amps and need to be cranked up a little higher to get going. So that is probably why you have to have them set at 3 o'clock - that's where mine is set.

Nice set up though - what speakers are those?

Edit: NVM just saw your sig...

After a bit more calibration... and a bit of Dubstep, one of my lightbulbs just unscrewed itself. Win!

Ha, biggrin.gif Congrats on the Dual XV15's mrsinister.

On A side note, I hope you get that popping problem figured out, I haven't had it with my XS30.

I also get the pop sometimes. But it doesn't bother me at all. Awesome setup btw. I have the craving for another xv15 after seeing all you guys. I'm probably moving soon too, so going to wait so I don't have to beak my back twice rolleyes.gif
