This is just my small view of things, but I have never seen them wish they went with something else either. It always seems to be a case of "these subs are darn impressive.... Now I must have more!!!"

And at the price points Tom/Jim have set, it's pretty darn achievable.

You need to manually adjust those little dials on the back panel(and make sure the toggle switches are set correctly).

The Studio 100s are really good speakers but they aren't going to have the headroom the XS15se does <100hz. I know it may seem counter intuitive to set the 100s for a 100-120hz highpass but give it a shot....at least 100hz. And leave it that way for a couple days while we trouble shoot the phase / distance /etc..

Found a better picture for you

thanks for the tip Tom.. yup toggle switches are both turned in so the high and low pass are turned on..


the low pass dial is set a tad higher than the high pass dial just so no gap.. tiny bit.. turning the dials is not easy behind my rack lol


but I cant say enough about the clean sounding performance of the analog xsp 1 pre amp great value for your money.. blow any avr out of the water sq wise.


Big Dan over at emotiva just announced that xmc 1 will start shipping out to people very soon.. that is going to be one heck of a pre pro for ht n 2channel .. I will wait for reviews to come out and have to save my peanuts again.. lol


didn't do any work on the subs settings to sore..


cheers


ps so I started with 2 subs now thinking about getting 4 or 6 LOL

It never ends I'm going to try stacking my four XV15SEs, two in each front L&R corners tonight and will post my thoughts, I have a ton of room gain with the two subs in each front corners, I can only imagine with four up front Right now I have them spread out evenly (all four about same distance to MLP) but have not calibrated them yet, will try this tonight before stacking all four up front.
Cheers Jeff

Never!

If you ever get satisfied with the bass (I am after 4 Triax's) you find other things to upgrade like speakers, and avr's then to pre-pro's and amps better projector, acoustically transparent screens, room treatments......

I hear you Ray, I'm upgrading speakers and a new AVR in the very near future, it truly never ends until you do

just wondering how big is your room?


If your looking for a new avr check out the xmc 1... reviews will be coming in a few weeks... dirac live room correction will be awesome for subs...


cheers..


just came across this info thought I would add...


I've been given the go ahead to share the XMC-1 AP test data with all of you. This is not a cherry-picked unit. This test data was gleamed from a random XMC-1 pulled straight off the line, and that will be shipped to an eager customer soon. The numbers you're seeing here represent those of actual production units and not a test mule. Also, look for the manual on Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!

I was going to "like" your highly accurate post. But truth is I don't like the fact it's true. No matter how much it seems the finish line is drawing near, with each new purchase something else just becomes the proverbial "weak link" that just has to be upgraded.

The link doesn't work unless you are a member of that forum. Also, I may be mistaken but I don't believe "direc" can handle multiple subs discretely. Then there's the issue of having no idea what version of dirac is even implemented here? I don't mean to sound like negative nancy or anything....I just have spent so much of my time trying to help customers sort through the umc-200 *quirks* (with nearly *zero* help from a real manual mind you) that I'm a bit jaded.

Honestly, at this point, I'm not sure why anyone would invest in a new processor that didn't have Atmos capabilities. If I was in the market it would be the big Denon with AUDY XT32, SUB EQ HT, and Atmos. But to each their own of course.

The secret to happiness, from a Cheryl Crow song:

"It's not having what you want. It's wanting what you've got."

As of this moment, I want what I have for my home audio/video.

However, I am now working on wanting what I have in a different area. Should be a pretty easy fix though.

AVR:       Yamaha RXV-375

Display:  Panasonic  TH-50PC77U

LCR:       Hsu HB1.2  HC1.2

Sub:       (2) PSA XV15se

Blu Ray:  Sony BDP-S5100

Apple TV

Harmony 650

yeah Tom you could be very right.. im waiting to read the reviews... atmos theaters are awesome.. that's the avx movie theaters up in Canada with dolby atmos..


im not the type to buy the 1st one off the line .. like to hear what people think.. think the main thing emo fans are excited about is the sq that the xmc 1 may offer
that it could be comparable to the xsp 1 analog pre amp would be a grand slam home run...


the difference from my denon In pure direct mode 2 channel to the xsp 1 is night and day way way better... ... avrs do a lot of things and not many very well..
did not know denon had dolby atmos already...


just want to read the reviews..


cheers..

If I had your size room I would have 4 XV30's. Actually I probably would just go DIY at that point.
