1) Current Power Sound Audio customers get 10% off so the price is $126 including shipping.
2) We include a 5 volt power supply
3) We include one free "plug in code" for you to download whichever "plug in" you want to use.
4) We have plenty of stock so a new order ships same day(or next business day if you order after 2pm Eastern time
5)If you have any questions we're here 7 days a week.


So you will get the miniDSP quicker, for less cost, and enjoy domestic support 7 days a week.

Why would you *not* purchase from Power Sound Audio?...

Sounds like a great deal! I may have to grab one to implement a house curve.

Do you have the balanced version?

Ok back to original scheduled programming.
Agreed, and don't minimize the importance of the DSP being "tuned" by Mark. With great power comes great tuning requirements..

Not on hand, but we may add a bunch of those into our next order. We do have the 10x10

But that may be a little much for your requirements..

I have actually looked at that but was thinking they may ad the DIRAC functionality to that unit at some point.

I have an onkyo PR-SC5509 with XLR pre outs so I could take advantage of the 10x10 but all of my speakers are driven by iNuke3000dSP's which have built in 8 band PEQ's and 2 band Dynamic EQ so it wouldn't really be necessary.

I will probably order one of the balanced units when you get them in and wait for 10x10 to get DIRAC.

The other unit that intrigues me is the HDMI unit that has DIRAC that they sell.

First, for 499.00, that is a lot of sub, a very good deal (assuming you are okay with whatever blemishes the unit has going on).


Some other points:


Yes, if you have a miniDSP or Audyssey SubEQ, you should be okay with them blending together. Just note that once you hit about -15db to -10db below reference and above, your PSA is going to start to show off.


If you are looking for a bargain, the Outlaw LF1 EX occasionally goes on sale for 599.00 and would be a better deal IMHO.


Take a look at data-bass.com and compare your PSA measurements vs the SVS (also noting the databass numbers are for the slightly less capable non-se PSA). Keeping in mind 3db difference in a sub is certainly noticeable, you are really talking about two subwoofers from different classes. That fine, American made piece of audio equipment you own is kind of head and shoulders...

Having had both in my room at the same time (as well as the outlaw ex), I would say the pb12-nsd would be a serviceable companion to the xv15se, but it's really not in the same league at all. I bought dual pb12-nsd's at their $599 sales price and paid full boat for the dual xv15se's, but ended up retaining the xv's and shipping the pn12's back to svs. It pained me to do so because I love a good deal, but they really are head and shoulders better. I suspect if you buy a pb12-nsd at this price you'll be left wondering what could have been (which is what happened to me).

My advice, keep your $500 and apply it towards the second xv15se for $799 as Tom stated. If it's worth doing you might as well do it right.

Yeah I have decided against it and I will just wait to get a 2nd xv15se. I also didn't realize that it wasn't new stock. My ocd would never allow to purchase a scratch and dent item.

All the ones I seen had "smashed corners". Not worth 500.00 if that is the case and a far cry from " scratch and dent". Subs with that kind of damage should be half price imo.

I agree 100%. Even if I had an acoustically transparent screen I wouldn't want that. I think it hurts the resale value too much.

Yeah I'm getting a single for now.. We plan on buying a house within the next year .. and if we do I will have my own man cave. But the thing is it will most likely be <2k^ft or even smaller so after talking Tom a bit we decided the sealed would be the best option. Along with me listening to music more than movies now..

Stacking the sub will get you more tactile feel. The question is will it be enough or will you be back in the sub market down the road. It is a3- 6 db increase in spl properly calibrated into the system.
