Anyone on the fence regarding these should give them a try. 30 day trial, free shipping both ways....so the audition is entirely risk free. Setup couldn't be easier.

The improvements will vary of course. If you have XT32/Dirac/ARC now and you have things fully optimized I wouldn't expect a day/night type of difference at all. But if you have a lesser version of room correction like YPAO or MCACC for example....the 8033S or 2.0 Dual Core can improve the overall bass sound quality significantly.

I can say I that all of you who choose to but it through PSA site are really getting a great deal, I bought mine 2 months ago from other US retailer, still got a deal but paid more then what PSA is offering. So, far I love the ease of use and I really like the results this little box does.

Discount that PSA has on package , if you are in a market for dual subs is almost a must, as you save 200-400$ on Antimode itself( depending on model).

Change is the only constant.

I think I am going to try a anti-mode. Tom, Which one do you recommend for multiple subs?

Guys just a heads up a facebook update on the V3600!

https://www.facebook.com/powersoundaudio?_rdr

Copied from facebook,

Quick V3600 update,
We'll have the official pre-order page up asap with all the usual graphs and pictures. For some reason orders are "through the roof" lately and fulfilling those always takes priority over website updates. In the meantime we want to offer as much info as possible on the V3600. If you have any questions(or are ready to pre-order!) please phone us or come into chat and we'll take care of you.

1)Dual 18" drivers, 1700 watts of ICE power, large slot port. The V3600 looks much like the XV30Fse except a little larger( 20"x 24"x45" W x D x H) with the slot port on the bottom(front) of the enclosure. Large traditional (removable) grill over the entire front baffle. The amp will have our typical controls---Gain, Crossover, Time delay and Room Size. Although if you intend to put the V3600 in a "small room"...we may need to talk..wink emoticon
2)The FR is similar to the V1500. (see graph at bottom)
3)Output is almost double the XV30Fse from 15hz to 125hz. The differences range from 4.9dB to 6.7dB. Average from 16-100hz is 5.8dB more for the V3600. You can see the XV30Fse output here. http://www.data-bass.com/data?page=system&id=106

V3600 output. (CEA-2010 averaged)
16-25hz ~ 122.3
31-50hz ~ 132.3
63-100hz ~ 136.0
16-100hz ~ 131.8

4)Standard Black Satin finish. No plans for wood veneer options at this time. Traditional style grills only.
5) PRICING (including shipping).
PRE-ORDER $1799 single, $3499 duals
PRE-ORDER pricing will last until 6-15.
REGULAR pricing $2299 single, $4199 duals.
Shipments scheduled to begin week of 6-15.
Team Power

Woah... look at those pre-order prices. Nice!

Now if I didn't already have dual S3000i... that I am still in TOTAL awe with, I'd be taking a serious look at the V3600!

Sony xbr70x850b ~ Yamaha RX-A2000 ~ OPPO BDP-103D ~ PSA MT-110 L/C/R ~ Dual PSA S3000i ~ Apple TV ~ Roku ~ Etc.

none of those three options is wrong...it all depends on what route you are willing to go...($$, WAF etc)

The UMIK-1 is designed for measuring software. Antimode has its own deal for measuring the room. I would still get familiar with REW so you can see the pre and post EQ results.
I agree with both Brian and Bass. I would go with the XS30se as my first choice (it will play fine with your XS15se). Then my 2nd choice would going dual XS15se's.

I wouldn't throw my money or time at the third option.

Since the subwoofer in Tom's video was a B&W, I'm assuming he didn't make the video (I'm at work and can't be watching videos all the time... just the PSA thread )

However... those are some dusty knobs on the back of that sub. Am I too OCD?

Yippee-ki-yay...

You guys keep stepping up your game. Kudos to you all at PSA.

So, since the numbers on the T-18 are still not on the PSA website....how would these compare to the T-18 you think??

Similar from about 30-120hz, slight edge to the T-18. Edge to the V3600 in the 16-30hz range. What you're getting with the T-18 is that last octave or so in true extension. say 12-15hz versus 5-7hz. $1799 is a crazy value. The regular pricing at $2299 and $2999 are more appropriate when comparing the two models IMO. Also, the T-18 is about half the height as well.

It's all the V1500's fault. We really had no intention of a XV30Fse reboot until we measured the V1500. When we saw how close the V1500 was to the XV30Fse we knew we had to do something..

Another way to look at the T-18 comparison is....you're paying $750(ish) for each octave of performance. You get 3 with the V3600(15-120) and 4 with the T-18(7-120)..
