DWAM, How far were you to the XV-15?, and what were you running a 30hz test tone, or a song?

My receiver does Trinnov but I've never tried it. LCR are not smaller speakers, figured I would cross it over at 110 since the subs and speakers were so close together that time delay/localization wouldn't be that big of an issue and I'd let the subs handle up to there. May try crossing over a bit lower and see what effect it has.

6ft away from each sub playing a bass song that does a frequency sweep. my subs reside on each side of the couch toed in slightly so the ports face the corners pulled away 16" or so.

no thats both subs with me holding the spl meter at my LP in middle of couch...see pic! read the sticky about spl meter corrections. the lower the frequency goes the more inaccurate the spl meter gets.

yea it is...im going to test one more time and see what the average is across the room. didnt think to check it. oh yea i have plenty of room for dual xv30's, but if anything i would add one or two more xv15's. however that wont happen in this room. that will be in the next house with dedicated HT room(someday). smile.gif

I only got 1 XS-30, and i sold one of the Empires, so i had 1 on 1 to compare, while they both are great subs, i think the XS-30 is better, but not by much, the Empire exibits more upper bass, but the XS-30 is smoother, and down low the XS-30 is a little better, but i am returning the XS-30 for the XV-30, as i didnt feel like the XS-30 was a upgrade for what i wanted, and that is more lower bass.

Great, thats allways good to hear, cant wait to hear what you thnk about it,keep us posted.
post #2338 of 9893
Damn, why did I start looking at this thread?

Now I'm thinking about getting rid of my Empire (which works just fine) and going PSA.
post #2339 of 9893
Like Joshjp has said, I would view going from a Epik Empire to a XS30 as a lateral move not an upgrade. I would think the XS30 would perform better then the Empire, but really by how much? If you're going to go with a PSA jump up to a XV30 IMO.

If you are happy with it, why spend more?....Then again, I was happy with my RW-12D, and now I want more LOL. So, I'm saving up for the XV-30 biggrin.gif
