PSA V1500 vs. S3000i: My Big Room Challenge
Thanks, but I prefer duals over one big sub, otherwise I would stick with my PC-Ultra. I am trying to full the room with a more balance low end experience, the Single sub is too uneven in where the sweet spot is.

The duals stand a good chance of smoothing out room induced peaks/dips though.

Tom I hope you were referring to the V3600i, as that's what the OP was referring to anyway. I could be wrong though..............

Understood and wise to go with duals-you can always get TWO big subs. You have plenty to choose from right now from several quality ID companies in many different configurations/sizes and more coming soon.

The new system of yours sounds killer-just need to finish it off with some good bass.

Yeah 2 big duals would be awesome once I pick up all the glass form it blowing my windows out

Even I have some practicality limits. My Ultra is already not working hard, when I do Audyessy I have to crank it down to almost no gain because Audyssey complains it is too hot. This is what is leading me to maybe select sealed subs. the room is around 2300 cubic feet and is closed in except for 30 inch opening to the foyer (and a bay window behind the seating postion) so the room gain from a sealed may make dual S1500s a sweet combo for music and movies, but still researching and debating. I know Tom is good about the returns, but I just would not feel good having them ship 2 of a sub and then swap to 2 of the other.

I understand and feel the same about "wasting" a companies money on shipping, it is not cheap. Therefore I research the hell out of my purchases and that includes talking with each company directly-not just chatting online. This will give you the feel of the real service you might get after the purchase if it is needed.

Regarding Audyssey setting up with no gain...where is the trim set at when done? Most subscribe to the theory of getting Audy to set up up well below zero, maybe 3-8 below, so that there is room for increase without getting into distortion territory. You really dont want it setting up above zero. This is due to Audy generally setting the sub about 10db too low, and trim above zero has more chance of distortion from a sub.

If you dont want to increase trim levels after EQ is done, then setting up right around zero would be the goal.

But in the end, whatever sounds right in your room and your listening taste is the real goal here.

Overall ported or sealed will work here, and I really think Tom would lean toward sealed, but it will take the right amount of sub. So, maybe 2 S1500 or even 2 XS15se would work here.
