These subs are built like a tank. Feels very solid. They are quite heavy, which is a direct indication of how well they are built.
Following are the movies I tested these subs with so far :
Avatar (especially the destroying of the hometree scenes)
The dark knight
Super 8 (The train accident scene. The SUBS literally nailed this scene. Very impactful)
Tron legacy (this movie has inflated bass, however the subs handled with no issues)
My impressions :
The bass is very well controlled, tight and deep. To my ears, the bass sounds natural and clean. For instance, when there are movies scenes where it rains, I could literally feel the rain. Explosive sound effects have great tactile feel. Most of the times, I did run the subs at reference level. The floor above my basement vibrates like crazy. Knocked off a few pictures off the family room right above my basement. Note that my basement theater is about 6000 Cu Feet and these dual subs nicely pressurizes my theater. I crossed my speakers at 80 Hz and I could never localize where the bass is coming from. The cabinet is completely inert. Not even once the subs bottomed out. I believe they really have tonnes of headroom. Not even once I sensed any distortion. I never realized what
I was missing all these years until I got these dual XS30s.
I got to tell you, these subs are my first true subs. Previously, I was using JBL Venue Sub 12. I had always known I need to upgrade to better subs. I did look at a few other subs like XV15, dual Rythmik FV15HP, Epik empire, HSU VTF-15H. At one point I was also contemplating JTR Caps and Seaton SubM, but they were out of my price range. That was when I got in touch with Tom and after exchanging a few emails, decided to take his (Tom) recommendation and ordered my dual XS30s. I am really very glad I did. I absolutely love them.
