I dont....my subs are downfiring. I still think inverted looks better, but either way makes me no difference.

That's a pretty good deal, why are you selling them if you don't mind me asking?

Really they sound great but we just cant get over their looks in the room, they don't really go with the decor at all. I'll probably move up to one of the veneer options from PSA or a Rythmik.

I hear you on that, if I didn't have a dedicated room setup and if my XS30's were going to be in my living room I would of definitely gone with the veneered XS30's. Man the pictures of them look great.

My system is in my living room so the addition of veneer choices was very welcome. I'm anxious to see how my Cordovan Cherry Triax looks (and sounds!).

Why not add another?

If I had room for a 4th I would take it...I plan on a 4th If/when I get a dedicated HT room. smile.gif

Swapping it out just to go sealed seems like kind of a lateral. Why not just add another? That would be a real upgrade.

I'm trying to decide between the two, what does the XS30 get you over the XV15?

6db more mid bass and possibly deeper extension depending on the room size. It takes 2 XV15's to equal the mid bass of the XS30, however 2 XV15's will have 4-6db more 15-30hz output.

That's not entirely true Basshead. Right from PSA's; there's only 0.5dB difference between the XV15 and XS30 from 20-31hz, and the port tune of the XV15 is roughly 18hz according to Tom. Below the port tune the XS30 is going to just pull away from the XV15, at least that's what I was told by Tom. And the XV15 is going to roll off pretty good below 18hz.

So I would think its more accurate to say that from 18-30hz the XV15 holds a very slight advantage, everywhere else the XS30 wins.

I will agree it is tough waiting for my triax to arrive. The RF-7s are doing what they can though smile.gif

I said DUAL XV15's vs a SINGLE XS30....and no it does not roll of that fast below 18hz. Do I need to break out the crayola crayons for you to understand my post? tongue.gif

LOL... I didn't see that you were talking about duals compare to a single XS30.. My bad tongue.gif

Below the port tune though the XS30 will still have more output then the XV15, unless Tom was lying to me! tongue.gif

Niether did the person who clicked your thumbs up button tongue.gif


Fwiw Tom told me the XV15 will hang with the XS30 down to around 15hz then the XS30 pulls away. I was simply trying to explain to the member I quoted what the gains are going to a XS30 over a XV15. Which is +6db more midbas output and more output below 15hz which can vary to some degree depending on the room.

It would be nice if some XS30 owners would actually measure thier subs instead of bench racing them. smile.gif

LOL... I know it's all good, but it would actually be closer to 7dB if it were two stacked XV15's. But I know that you already knew that too wink.gif
post #5640 of 9901
I would totally expect the XV15 to be right there with the XS30 @ 15hz, I just don't think it would have any output advantage @ 15hz. I would expect them to be pretty much even, and then from below 15hz the XS30 to walk away from the XV15.

I still personally feel that for the money the XV15 is one of the best bang for buck subs on the market!
