Hi all,

Please be patient Our first priority is to current customers (answering all support questions) and shipping as many orders as we can build per day.

There will be *several* announcements over the next week or so. We'll have one update on the site today.

Remember, the base plate doesn't matter nearly as much as the other components,



Looks like I lost my 12" and 15" woofers

and mids

and tweeters

Stored these just a little too long, definitely time for an upgrade, ...

I hope the XV15's can take a lifelong pounding (they arrive next week). What is the accepted break in period?

Twenty to forty hours.

I'm sure there's a bit more loosening after forty but not enough to worry.

Just saying, I find that before measuring our system, the system needs to be on for at least thirty minutes to allow enough time for the amplifier to stabilize. Other than the need for a system to stabilize before taking measurements, after forty hours, the drivers should be loosened up sufficient so as not not be a consideration.

Hmmm I didn't break in my xv15 at all. Did it say to do that in the manual? I might have missed it... Did I hurt it?

No. The subs actually break in all by themselves. The idea of break in is to loosen them up before evaluating them. It's not a needed step like sealing grout after it's cured.

Bottom ported - is that enough breathing room? I thought for rear ported subs that the general rule was to have the sub something like 2.5x the diameter of the port away from the wall so would not the same apply for a bottom port?

Doesn't quite hit the hot rodding power/weight ratio improvement of last weeks announcement...

Now just take a router to the edges and call it a cylindrical design,

Not cat cannon, but getting close...

Technically it does considering it doesn't come with a base plate like the XV30 does

First off,

Tom, congrats on releasing a new product. I personally understand the trials and tribulations of doing such.

Next, I'll show my ignorance here and ask the community fom an accoustical viewpoint what's the difference between front and down firing XV30? From all the discussion of wavelengths and the XV15 base plate not poviding translational effects, it seems like the XV30 and XV30F response shoud be the same (and measurement data shows this). I have to assume decisions on 30's are really based upon what looks good in a room, similar to the question of base plate or not on the 15's. That said, my comment on rounding the corners is earnest in what's the difference between a tall front firing square sub and a tall round down firing sub?

(I've beed fixing tweater voice coils on a flea-bay "like new" purchase tonight of Mirage FRX-rears)....
