I've been tempted to put my pre-order but really that much as I trust Tom it is necessary to compare his new Subs against those of the other companies before paying> $ 2500
I sympathize with your interest in having technical specifications for the new subs, before you buy. By that, I think you mean that you want to see measurement data indicating how the subwoofers perform at particular frequencies. I am sure that you will see that data at some point, but even as a non-PSA owner, I fully understand why that isn't a priority right now for PSA. Especially since the pre-orders are going so well.
FWIW, I think that there is always some element of trust involved when a new product is introduced. I always try to read reviews of everything from cars to smartphones when new models are introduced. But, if I find a brand I like, I typically have good results from newer models from that brand. Again speaking as a non-PSA owner, I honestly don't think it is a giant leap of faith to think that two good 18" drivers in a large cabinet, pushed by ~2000 watts RMS, with a 13.5Hz port tune, will be a terrific sub for someone interested in more <30Hz performance than the current V3611's offer.
The cabinet size, amplifier power, and port tune sort of speak for themselves. And, there are reviews of the Neo and iPal drivers, employed in the two higher-tier models, on Data-Bass and elsewhere. I believe that the newer low-tuned subwoofers (and especially the higher-tier models) will retain much of the current PSA sound signature and mid-bass performance while comparing very favorably with the Cap 2400ULF down to about 12.5Hz. I could be wrong about that, but I'm willing to bet that I'm not.
You may still want to wait until there is some hard performance data from PSA, or from some PSA owners, to review. But, if you do, you will probably miss the pre-order pricing. I understand the dilemma and understand why you and others may wish to wait. But, I thought it might be helpful for a non-PSA owner to express an opinion on this. If I were in the market for new low-tuned subs, the iPal (especially) or the Neo versions of the TV3600 would be right up at the top of my list, along with Cap 2400ULF's and FV25HP's. And, if I liked the PSA sound signature and CS, it would be a pretty easy decision for me.
I hope this helps someone!
