Exactly! Even when putting in audio in a car, one of the No-No's is running the 12V power line to the amp along with the speaker wires.


SOUND: Marantz AV-7702 Pre/Pro, McIntosh MC1706 Amp,
Klipsch RF7-II's, Klipsch RC64-II (Soon), Klipsch RS62-II (Soon), (2) XS15se subs.

Gov, I didn't know you got it from PSA, no problem there, they make everything right. I happy to hear that all is well, amp swap takes about 10 minutes or less. You have more subs than me that has to change verrrrry soon. I bet you feel a lot better now.
Cheers Jeff

I know a couple of the guys use them here on this thread with excellent results, they will chime in soon.

I think Tom gives them to return PSA customers. I got one when I did the SE upgrades. Should of bought some MTM's instead of CX's then you could of had one too. Lol
Tom sent me a pair when I bought dual xs30's :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I've used the Rocketfish kit from Bestbuy with great results. For what it does and it's price it's a no brainer compared to the more expensive kits out there.

Receiver - Denon 4311CI
Speakers - Infinity P363's, PC351, P153's
Subs - Rythmik FV15HP's

Thanks, I seen those and thought well for 50 bucks they probably don't work to good. Lol, but hey that works for me, I'm about to spend a bunch on new equipment so I'll gladly pay that price.

I have 2 pairs of Rocket fish wireless devices and they have been working great for almost 2yrs now. The only thing I wish I had done is bought a pair sooner...they definitely allow more placement options to dial in the subs response.

Wanted to post my impressions of my dual XV-15se after a very fun weekend of playing in the home theater and fine tuning these. Ill get straight to the point. My system has never sounded better. These are fantastic subs and do exactly what I wanted them to do; keep up with my JBL 4670Ds at or around reference without compression and sound tuneful while doing it. Done, done, and done. My old HSU VTF-2.4s failed in all three of these areas. It kinda makes me upset how long I went before upgrading. Reference level with no compression is absolutely exhilarating!

It amazes me how wonderful of a company PSA is. Tom V. and Jim have created what I believe is the standard in which all other companies should strive for. Ive never seen an owner as passionate, patient, helpful, and intelligent as Tom V. This has been one of the best experiences Ive had in buying gear and having it live up to the hype or exceed it. Cheers to PSA!!!

Congrats on your new subs.

I have never communicated with Jim, but I can speak for Tom. that he is a really good person, and not just a salesman trying to push a product then dump you. I even seem him post on RA thread helping people over there. How cool is that. He seems to be more into helping to make people happy, even if its not his product. That is a lot of class. The other thing is I think he works 20 hours a day because he seems to always have time to answer questions for people. Not like a couple other people (Competitors) that seems too busy to answer messages or may answer back in a couple of weeks if you re lucky. So with PSA, you have really good and fast responsive AAA support. Which is very important in making a purchase.

Absolutely! I read through this entire thread and was so impressed with the way Tom would work to help everyone who needed it. Just top notch. Mad respect for that man and his products.

Thanks Bass that's good to hear, I'm about to order me a pair. I been thinking about going wireless with the one I already have, but wasn't sure how they would work. Thanks for the feed back.
