The XS30se are a bit better than the XV15se even in a large room environment like this. The 30s are going to extend a bit deeper, they will have similar output capabilities in the deep bass, and the 30s will have close to double the output in the mid and upper bass(45-100hz). So I don't think moving to dual XV15se would feel like an upgrade. Let's be sure we have the 30s optimized before jumping ahead of ourselves though.

Tom, I don't have the 30s! I have two XS15se's. I did some more measurements tonight. A little different than before. This time I used the sensitivity factor pasted in my calibration file instead of calibrating the mic with the SPL. And I found a 5 dB difference at 70 dB.
I have a little flexibility with placement. When I did the crawl, only one spot had more loudness, but I couldnt tell if the sound was better, and that was on the left side of the sofa next to the left surround speaker.
I did one compression run and another with each sub and then both together. Let me know what you see out of this. It seems to fall on its face right after about 19 Hz but then picks back up before running off the graph.
The 2nd graph lower measurements are each sub. The top two measurements are both subs on together
SOUND: Marantz AV-7702 Pre/Pro, McIntosh MC1706 Amp, Klipsch RF7-II's, Klipsch RC64-II (Soon), Klipsch RS62-II (Soon), (2) XS15se subs.
