Did not have a chance to actually use this sub a lot . But based on reviews on this forum and quality of after sales support from manufacturer, I am convinced that I made the right choice.

Just for the record I had my XS30s stacked in the front right corner for a long time with no vibration issues with the sub moving, solid as two square pieces of granite. I did put rubber gasquet squares under each footer on the top sub just to keep it from moving but was not necessary. I was blown away seriously. eek.gif I highly reco it.

Just an idle thought. For anyone curious the picture of the exploded driver in this thread is not any product by PSA but another sub, another member juiced with way to much power from an external amp. Just in case you thought that would happen to you, it won't smile.gif

Also waiting with baited breath to hear about the first Triax's..... so jealous.

Changed the fuse today without any luck. Probably amp is bad. I am awaiting response from Tom. Lets see what happens next.

Tom will likely have you test the driver, if its still good. If so he will likely send you a new amp and a return box for the bad amp. Keep us posted. I'm sure you will be back up and running soon.

OEB, I think I was the second person to order the Triax, so I will hopefully give you my first impressions ASAP. Cheers wink.gif

Do you mind if I ask what size room you have?

I'd love to hear from any owners who have tried dual XS30's in a larger space (5000 ft3+).

I have about 5500ft3 and Tom said he thinks I'd be happy with dual XS30's. Some owners have suggested I'd be better off with a vented design such as dual XV15's or an XV30f/XV15 combo.

That was a member over in the DIY section that did that. It never dawned on me that one could perceive the pic to be a PSA driver. wink.gif

No safeguards are in place, it will NOT happen.

Let's fix the issue about that pic:

It's certainly not a good idea to put equipment on top, especially audio stuff wink.gif sub as stool? My sub is my baby, I pamper it tongue.gif

Do you have a PSA? I got the standard finish. It's like a truck bed liner. I love it.

I asked Tom about putting equipment on the cabinets and he gave the OK. In the end I just wasn't comfortable with it though. frown.gif

Im going to put my lifesize bust of Iron Man on one of my subs on one side of the screen, and my lifesize bust of the Terminator 2 Endoskeleton or the battle damaged T2 Arnold bust, on the other. biggrin.gif

Sideshow Collectibles 1:1 scale Iron Man bust

Sideshow Collectibles 1:1 scale Terminator Endo bust, and the Morgul Lord from LoTR

Lifesize bust of T2 Arnold battle damaged. Lurtz premium format in the background.

I believe I was one of those that suggested the XV30f, I have dual XS30's in a smaller room than yours.

Please discount my advice, I would take Tom's recommendation over mine any day. I have not experienced the XV30f personally. It looks like an amazing sub, but if Tom states the XS30's will handle it just fine, I believe him.

I love my XS30's, and I would buy them again if I had not already smile.gif I just wish I had the finish options that are now available for new buyers.

If Tom said dual xs30's would work well in your room then do not hesitate...he knows far more than we do about this stuff!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not questioning Tom's suggestion, I just wanted additional feedback from owners.

There have been a few posts where XS30 owners switched to the XV30 for "a more satisfactory HT experience". This has me wondering if the XV might be a better fit for for my personal taste (I want great music and HT performance and like strong output really down low). Of course in those situations I don't know if they were just talking about a single XS30 vs the XV30 or if multiples were involved.

One reason I'm considering a pair of XV15's or XS30's over the XV30f is cosmetics. These subs will be in my living room and the finishes offered on the XV15 and XS30 would look MUCH nicer.

Btw, for reference I have never owned a sealed sub.

Part of what appeals to me about the XS30 is it's shorter height opens up two additional possible locations on either side of the TV. My TV is wider than the stand it sits on and the XS30 would just fit under each end of the TV. The XV15 is just a bit too tall to fit in those locations.

Now of course it may well be that those locations may not be good options for sub performance, but I'm thinking the more placement options I have, the better.

Decisions, decisions......... Is this what they refer to as "analysis paralysis"?

Saving $665 on a pair of XV15's, which aren't likely to disappoint as you've experienced first hand, is awfully tempting as well. wink.gif

Maybe I should just order all four and have a PSA shootout! biggrin.gif I would have to budget in return shipping costs, but perhaps it might be worth it? Don't know how Tom would feel about that knowing a pair would be definitely be retuned and have to be sold as b stock.

Unfortunately that .5" difference is enough to determine whether it will fit or not. frown.gif

Ok, I have a question you guys could maybe help me with beings yall own these subs. I'm looking at purchasing a XV15 next Friday, the situation I'm faced with is my wife gave me one place and one place only I can put it, which sucks because I'd like to put it wherever it sounds best but that's not gonna happen. Anyways I have a entertainment center with a large bottom shelf were I plan on putting it. It will have to be laid on its side (woofer facing my seating position) the shelf is 19x29x60 the port will be facing into the long end of the enclosure it will be placed in. Will this have a negative affect? Are should I be looking for something else instead?
Thanks for any and all help.

As long as there's a few inches of clearance for the port it should be okay.

It will have plenty of clearance, about 40" or so. I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't be a issue before placing my order.

Thanks

Hi all,

We recently received news that we will not receive our Power-X 15" driver shipment for another 10-12 days. These were originally scheduled to arrive in early July but have been delayed due to circumstances beyond our control. We apologize for the delay and any inconvenience it may cause. As soon as this shipment arrives we will do everything in our power to fulfill all back orders as quickly as possible. I know this isn't the news everyone wants to hear. Trust me, disappointing customers is never a good feeling.

Well, not the kind of news that one wants to receive on a Friday, but I do appreciate that you are taking the time to provide this update and more important to be completely honest about what is going on. Kudos to you!

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to receive my first PSA subwoofer...........wink.gif
