Josh, I have to mirror what Walke is saying, I loved the brute force of the dual XV15s and at the same time they were smooth as well. The XS30 just had the perfect blend of sheer force and the delicacy of a humming bird, I don't want to say they are fast cause I don't think that is a correct term but that was my impression, the slam was just there and instantly gone, if that makes sense. I listen to a lot of vinyl and the XS30 handles music in spades for me. It does whatever it's called on to do, slamming, precise and just right there. That thwack sound like Paul Bunyon splitting a giant oak is just mesmerizing, yet on quiet passages it just is so smooth and well defined in all areas, it never misses a beat. The last thing the XS30 is not is a one note wonder, plenty of subs prior to the XS30 could dig deep and had decent output but none with the sophistication of the XS30, I know this is redundant but it is just so natural and never breaks a sweat, when it comes to comparing the XS30 to another product of which I have high regard the Oppo 105, the XS30 is a universal sub that does everything asked of with no complaints, and on a very consistant basis. It just keeps surprising me, just when I think I've heard everything this sub has to offer, I'm shocked over and over. With duals it's like having headphones on. I just can't say enough about it, I really like the sealed design, it has the power and output of a ported sub but for lack of a better term it's the finess factor that draws me in. Consider the build quality and components used and the integration of these parts in the cabinet design (and price too) and it's hard not to like this sub. I considered one mega sub prior to the dual PSA subs but that thought has since been a fading memory.
Cheers Jeffrey:)

True, I did recommend xv15's but my main goal was to steer ya towards a 15" PSA and away from a 10" SVS. Glad you are loving those xs15's!!

I ordered my first PSA product just a few days ago and after speaking with Tom I'll be getting the first of the new product.

Can't divulge anymore than that though wink.gif

Should be a nice upgrade from my dual RW-12Ds

A compact form something like the JTR S1 would be nice.

I'm in the same boat. I ordered the XV-15 but since it hasn't shipped out I'm tempted to upgrade to the mystery product...hmmm, we'll see.

No PSA sub here. I've been considering finding something to work with or replace my current SVS 16-46PC+ cylinder sub.

How much of an upgrade is the xs30 over the xv15? How is the difference in sound between them? Thanks.

Starting to remind me of the 70's and Money Hall (sorry if you're too young to understand).


Monty: You can hold on to your original order or take the new lite versions.
Contestant: I'll take the box..

Monty: Its the xv15-original, Very nice looking platform but heavy, now you can keep that or choose what's behind door #3
Contestant: I'll take door #3


Monty: Its the newest PSA product, but no one knows what it is...


No disrespect meant...
