So true! I went nearly 20 years thinking I didn't need a subwoofer for my speakers, until I found AVS!:D Now I'm about 10 weeks away from buying a Second sub.:cool:

I too have heard vinyl sound amazing on a cost-no-object system. I'm wondering how much money it takes to truly enjoy vinyl on a typical electronics/ speaker setup? Would $500 be enough? $1000?

I agree. I also listen around-15 and have always planned on going dual so I chose the XS30se. I seriously doubt I am losing much compared to the S3000i, especially considering the money saved.

Nice! I don't think there is a better sub anywhere at that price. I hope I can get another b stock when I get my second. Such a great bargain. :)

I also have NHT tower speakers, VT-2's, that have 10" subs crossed over at 125 Hz. I went almost 20 years without a separate subwoofer. Now that I have a REAL sub, my towers only go down to 90Hz....

Inception! Love the movie and a great bass movie. Chapter One was all I needed to play to know I was keeping the XS30SE over the V1500.

They have another b-stock right now. Wish I could grab it but unfortunately I can't. :(
Hopefully they will have another b-stock when I'm ready. For right around $1000, it's hard to beat the XS30se!

My single XS30se handled the movie just fine at -12, which is as loud as I can handle. Still, I can't wait to play it again when I add a second XS30se!:D

I can't imagine you have anything to worry about. I have ONE PSA XS30se and it was just fine playing at -12.

I think it's very difficult to mix sealed and ported subs. It wouldn't be worth the trouble to me. I would just get a second XS30se.

I also had asked about the possibility of upgrading my XS30se to the 1700W ICE amp but Tom said it would be too expensive since it would require replacing the drivers as well.

Last time I watched it was at -12 with my sub 3dB hot. I don't think I could have handled any louder!
