That's actually a good question I think. I don't have this problem really but with two 4kW subs what do you guys do? Are they on 15A circuits? I guess you use two separate 15A circuits? Each will have a max RMS power of 1800W; that is well below the RMS rating of the Triax' amp. That being said, in audio it's mostly transients and the circuit can provide much higher peaks.

So do you plan on upgrading to dual 20A circuits?

Wow I have an 818 too and didn't even know that ajusting the trim levels in the options was only temporary. This is awesome, thanks.

Good luck with that... some rattles are rather easy to tame but I think the ones in my room are caused by the air ducts in the (finished) ceiling. Fixing that would be... complex.

Then study the other measurements (impulse, group delay, stored ringing, FR). If you find anything better at $1499...jump on it...

Thanks for the great advice Tom. I think I like the idea of what we talked about earlier.... getting a single XS30se now and then later on, possibly getting another. An XS30se's dimensions are only slightly larger than the XV15, however, I think the footprint would be less because I wouldn't have to make room for the port.

Living room theater set-up:  
AVR: Pioneer VSX-1124-K.
Speakers/Sub: (4) NHT Classic Two and an NHT TwoC center + PSA-XV15 subwoofer.
HTPC: z97 mobo, 16GB mem, i5-4440, SSD+HD, LG BD drive, Win 8.1 pro w/WMC + MB3.
Content sources: OTA Winegard HD7698P, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Netflix etc.

I am reading Jerry's guide and as I read farther I saw that the ASIO drivers were needed for the HDMI. Thanks for the links Jeff, much appreciated.

The performance of a single XS30se will be similar to dual XS15se. The main advantage for the dual XS15se would be the potential for smoothing room induced peaks/dips. The main advantage for the single XS30se is it leaves you an easy upgrade path....just add a second.

I'm Thinking about doing an at home comparison between the XS30se and an SVS PC-12 Plus.

That sounds like fun, however, I am wondering why you would chose to compare the PC-12 plus (which is ported I believe) against a sealed subwoofer design?

I think it'd be an interesting comparison to check out the SB13-ultra and the XS30se.

Similar price and don't forget the PC-12+ can be sealed. Also want to compare sealed vs ported in my room.

Oh I see that makes sense. I didn't know that the PC-12 could be sealed. That sounds like a neat idea... would be interested in hearing your impressions on the both of them. My initial thought is that the SVS will likely create more output and probably will have a smoother bass response.
