It has that feature i think, but its a spl meter, and i do have a rat shack spl meter, so do i just run the sub test tone in the avr until it reads 75db?.

one sub looks pretty good, the other has a bad 62hz null. they look like they are fighting each othe. did you try adjusting the phase on the sub with the null?

I wish these were smaller, so i could stack them, with both on it sounds good, but the graphs don't show it.

sounds like maybe the dsp cal in the amp could be off...not really sure, you might want to contact Tom and see what he thinks.

I got it from Tom at PSA, the input of the RCA was a little messed up.

No the new AVRs are pretty easy. I just got a Denon 4520 a few months ago and it sets both subs. It walks you though it. It will balance them to 75db. You just have to goto the subs and turn the gain knob and watch the screen.

Thanks Reef! Yeah I think I get a little distracted with seeing other programs being mixed in or should I say downloaded. Hey you got a brand-new Denon! Congrats! cool.gif

Could you ellaborate a bit more than the RCA was messed up, I know how these subs are critically tested prior to leaving the facility, this is a first for me.

One of mine had a issue as well when I first got it. Turned out it was a connection on the amp that was not seated all the way. Tom took care of it quickly and everything has been good since. smile.gif

That being said, one big factor to consider is how loud you like to listen. I never play anything at reference (not even for demos) so I'm sure that's why the xs15 is plenty IMO.

I'd say shoot Tom an email if he doesn't get a chance to respond on here. Let him know all the details about your room and especially your listening preferences and he won't steer you wrong.

Thanks all, Tom suggested a XS15 as well but that was before the XS30 came out. Normal listening level is -18 to -10 for movies and games (some music). So it appear in a month or two I will be ordering a XS30..

I'd like to see some pics of the XV30f in the wild if any new owners don't mind posting them. I'm also interested in seeing what it looks like from the back. If I get one I may end up facing it towards the front wall, meaning the back will face the listening position.

Thanks. smile.gif

No house curve yet.... i purchased the 2x4 2.1 advanced revision b. I am waiting until I have more time to play with the mini...jim is going to help me with some data to plug into it. the problem right now is its fireworks season and i am busy with that at the moment. So now its more listening and less fiddling with settings and measurement gear.

Tom said one of the connectors might not have been soldiered all the way, my problem was the sub would turn on and make a poping noise, sometimes not even touching it.

My xb 30f x2 are on the way. Ill snap pics for you. The amp is on the back and the port fires out of the bottom. Im not sure if youd want the driver firing into the wall though.

If you could set it up that way why not just flip 180* ?
