Mike, I'm really sorry for your unfortunate mishap, knowing you my friend all will be well. I like how you look at the positive side of a negative situation, that's a sign of strength when others would crumble.

My neighbor had completely remolded the entire house from roof to basement, practically built a new home, she was on vacation and a water line broke on the upper floor, when she came back several days later the house was completely destroyed. A disaster team has been working there for over two months trying to get the house livable again. Strength my friend and a Higher Power will see you through. If He brings you to it, He will bring you through it.......

Most Sincerely, Jeffrey

I've had a story I've wanted to share for a few weeks now but just haven't gotten around to it. But I feel it needs to be told because it's another instance of the integrity of the men at PSA.

I was seriously considering jumping in on the pre-order pricing for the V1800 (hey, I have a problem..what can I say). I thought it might match up a bit better with the V3600 then the XV15se does. So I emailed Tom with some questions and one of them was "Do you think it would be a waste to trade up to the V1800 from the XV15se?" Now that's a loaded question that I would never ask someone if I didn't trust them because it's open to interpretation. He could have easily written back telling me I should do it. But he didn't.

Instead Tom wrote back and told me it wouldn't be a "waste" but he also doubted I would notice much difference when combined with the power of the V3600. So I wrote him back and thanked him for his honesty and he said "Yeah, I bet if you did the upgrade you would end up trying to convince yourself it was worth it. We don't want that. We want results similar to your firing up the V3600i for the first time…Holy S...!"

Let me say my XV15se is in the room to simply smooth out the bass, the V3600 does the heavy lifting. Looking back I realize it really didn't make sense to consider the upgrade because the V1800 wouldn't be "That Much" more than the XV15se (not when it's in the same room as a V3600).

If Tom and Jim lacked integrity they would have tried to convince me to do it. But instead Tom made sure I understood that he didn't think it was worth it (based on my particular situation). In my opinion this shows that Tom and Jim value their customers and are not just after their customer's money. And that's one of the many reasons I really like PSA.

Having said that... an upgrade that would be worth it would be a 2nd V3600. That would be noticeable! But that's a story for another day.

Thanks & psa

Hey Hop, just wanted to add to the integrity of Jim and Tom, I've been with them since the beginning not knowing anything about them, I didn't know they were part of the SVS company. Just my initial emails and chats with them convinced me to try their subs, and you know the rest. I did try their subs, almost every one...

This quote from Jim today made me laugh out loud, seriously....

I'm glad you are liking the V1800. Tom and I should start a pool on when we think you'll trade those in for something new. :-)

Don't come out with something new for at least three months and I might keep them...

Cheers Jeffrey

I had similar conversations with Tom for a long time regarding my XS30 and whether or not the SE upgrade was worth the money. He did not push me one bit and had very similar responses.

When the S3000i upgrade was discussed, he was still conservative but mentioned the differences would be greater than the SE upgrade. When he mistakenly miss-quoted my XS30 trade and still honored it I was really taken back yet once again at Tom's integrity.

Companies that know the difference in short versus long sighted decisions generally do much better at customer retention and that is just as big a deal in their success as new prospects.

Tom,

I am assuming serial numbers started at 1, so I have V1800 8 and 9, how well have they been moving so far?

Also how long before the amp going into standby mode when it does not sense any input? Any harm other than power and some additional heat of leaving the amp ON all the time?

V1800s IN ALL THEIR GLORY

This first series of photos will highlight the finish and round over cabinet joints and no visible seams whatsoever even close up with lots of light....I will try and show the unique slot port design, like Tom and Jim said it took a lot of different attempts to get it right, and they did. You can also see the driver binding posts termination female to male 4 pin socket connection that is directly attached the ICE amp's circuit board. Nice neat and tidy....

Cheers Jeffrey

V1800 continued

This series of photos will highlight the 1800 with driver intact and out of cab, also some pics of the ICE amp. This is one mean looking sub in person and quite elegant as well, like the Beauty and the Beast..........

Nice pics Jeff. At first I was scratching my head about the cable ties you have running through the screw holes around the driver but I think I figured it out. Are they for making it easier to lift and place the driver?

1800 continued

Last but not least is a series of the cabinet inside with all the damping material which seems like about 3" thick, and it's hard to see the slot pot design which is different from what I've seen before, the thick rigid bracing and the port I believe also contributes to the bracing as well, after taking the ICE amp out you can not see the driver as this is the design of the port which seems to start there and slopes down toward the front slot opening. Very solid construction and everything is laid out meticulously, I think Jim is responsible for this aspect of assembly, he's a perfectionist. Same detail as the speakers when I took them apart.

OK my friends I hope I've given some insight to the quality of this sub and the extensive design parameters involved in the making of the V1800. Soon to follow will be an essay of listening impressions and hopefully some measurements once I get it dialed in. Thanks for taking the time to view my slide show, enjoy. FEEL THE POWER.......

Tony, I hope to get there soon, it's been a very hectic time in my life and certain priorities take precedence right now, but as soon as time allows I will do my best to offer up my impressions and some graphs for you to critique my friend.....

You have more guts than me, I was curious to see the inside, but did not want to mess with them. They are very well constructed, no seams anywhere.

Hi Jeff,
Did you get a chance to weigh the driver?

Yeah it was a little difficult at first, I tried taking the driver out first and realized that the speaker wires were terminated right into the amp. I had to take the ICE amp out and disconnect the socket from the circuit board, it also had a tie wrap to secure the cable to the amp post for a secure connection. I figured it out as I have so much knowledge in speaker design and ICE amp technology, it was a breeze for me......

@lz7j , the driver is around thirty pounds or so. Take into account that weight does not denote driver performance, there are many other design parameters that contribute to sound quality....

Awesome. Yes, I'm fully aware driver weight does not indicate performance - the tsad18v1 with the neo magnet weighs less than 30lbs and is considered one of the best sub drivers available.

I can tell you that's not the case with my 68lb hst18 vs. my 30lb ht18 drivers

What type enclosure is the hst18 used in, sealed could be of moderate size, vented would need some huge ports, larger and could be tuned easily below 20Hz, just curious, that's a hefty driver. Is this a DIY designed cab or commercial? Thanks

The TSAD18v1 weighs less than 30lbs because it has a neo magnet though!....lol

Those drivers have some of the strongest magnets available....lol

The HST18's are in 11cu full Marty boxes, ports are 22.5w"x44l"x3h" ~ 17hz. Each sub is on a 4000w channel from Crown ITech8000's. I also have 2 x Marty Cubes (very similar to your v1800's in size) at 2x2x2 and tuned ~20hz and HT18 drivers. My latest boxes are a pair of Johnny's with ~ 18hz tuning. Here's the build thread on them - Johnny Sub build thread

Those drivers have some of the strongest magnets available....lol
I was about to pull the trigger on those but ultimately got better pricing on multiple HST18's from Nick.

Did you document your build, lots of wooferage there? Bassment is a crazy dude, that's an appropriate avatar for him. I've seen a lot of his stuff, he's a very talented craftsman. I don't have those skills but I do enjoy hanging out in the DIY forums.

No build thread from me since I'm technically not building them (except for hooking up speakon connectors and mounting the drivers).
Bassment is the resident and local sub cab builder in the GTA, he did most of mine.

Havent been around in a little bit:


I just saw that the prices have dropped. So I'll ask again: If space isn't an issue, the V3600 is the better buy over the SVS PB13 Ultra? Seems like a done deal. I'm leaning towards one 3600 or 2 1800s now

I would go dual 1800's if you never plan on adding a second 3600. And yes the 3600 is leaps and bounds ahead of the PB13U. Nothing wrong with the PB13, but it has been surpassed by a few new ID offerings.
