Amen my Brother...........................I could have went with the TV36s but you know me well enough, in six months the third Flagship will most likely be available and who would I be if I didn't jump on my third, like Jim and Tom used to say "build it and Ahblaza will buy it".................that will make the V3611s the longest I've held on to any PSA subs....a year without an upgrade.... Can't wait to hear your impressions my friend, look very much forward to that.....................

By all means, if you want it, get it! It just seems like a waste of time if the 7201 was too much.
To be honest I wasn't being honest when I had the 7201, it was too much for my wife's candle room always breaking her jars, in my dungeon it was great but I needed an excuse because I'm just not a single sub kind of guy.......Add in the fact at that time I was going through some serious room and walls closing in on me mental issues and that sub caused me to feel like I was listening in a phone booth. Wife does not make candles anymore and my room is suddenly back to normal size again thanks to the MMC....it's short for......guess

That’s very sad, I hope the man made a recovery. I’ve mentioned to Tom about the brutal work schedule and delegating more, but he enjoys what he’s doing and he’s very smart, I don’t see him driving himself to the point of a nervous breakdown, at least I hope not!

I was curious so I did some research on what and who you were speaking of. I searched Philharmonic Audio and came across this post by Dennis Murphy (I didn't officially quote him so he wouldn't see this post)...

Quote:
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack. Some of you have noticed that I'm way behind on email responses, shipping notices, and some AVS posts. This has been a very bad month for me. Due to myriad factors, I've run into fairly serious financial problems with Philharmonic Audio. Certainly one problem was the stupid price I charged for the AA+, which should have been $350 at a minimum. Fed Ex has contributed to the mayhem with Olympic Packaging hurdling, particularly across the continental divide. They won't make good on damage unless it's pretty much a total loss, and then you have to return the speaker(s) to them for inspection. It's usually too much of a pain to diddle with. Also, the volume of shipments has increased exponentially. I've sold way over $1 Million worth of speakers. With the exception of the black BMR's, which are mostly assembled, I have to hand wire the electronics and put everything together, test, and ship. BTW, the packing material I use for the AA's cost me $7 a box. I got burned out on soldering and filling the house up with cabinets, cabinets, cabinets (about 15 - 20% of which had to be thrown out because of poor shipping protection from Parts Express to me (that's why I added $7 of styro blocks.0 And PE is not charging sales tax, which was about my "profit margin" on a good day, and I didn't have any good days. This is probably too much information, but I suffered some kind of extreme panic attacks and depression along the way, to the point were I could barely function and I had lost 10 lbs. And early this morning I ended up with 3 cops and 2 rescue workers shining lights at me in my bedroom in the midst of a violent panic attack that the neighbors and Ben the retriever objected to. I don't remember doing it, but I had my will and important financial papers and deed of trust laid out.

I got back from the emergency room a couple of hours ago. That really scary experience seems to have snapped me out of it and I'm feeling much more like myself. But--I've got to get my speaker life under control and get realistic about pricing. Philharmonic made lots of sense back when I just sold the Phil 3's with serviceable, but not furniture grade cabinets made quickly by a local builder. Now I have too many speakers, and Jim just can't continue to make dozens of cabinets for me, particularly when he's losing almost as much as I am. So I'm stripping my line to just 2 speakers--the BMR and the Phil 3. I think they're both unique speakers populating an equally unique price range, albeit not as unique as before. I gotta avoid further losses before I deplete my IRA. From this moment forward, the BMR's in the black cabinets will sell for $1,500/pr with shipping included. That's about a $70 increase in the old pricing structure. I'm also only offering Salk BMR cabinets in furniture grade cabinets, and they will be $2,000 with shipping included. I will probably put my other speakers in the public domain, and you interested kit builders can start inhaling solder fumes and making dumb wiring errors. You're gonna love it.

I really hope Dennis is taking care of himself better than he was before and I also hope Tom V. doesn't run himself ragged like this. No sense in burning the candle at both ends when all you need is a little balance and peace of mind in your life.

Well said my friends: @ahblaza , @Hopinater as well as @basshead81, and many others who keep me coming back here for more.
You all helped me get to the bass nirvana that I am currently in. I must say Tom's new offerings are tempting, but the wife said I could do something with the 15s , until after I get the oldest into college this year. So my interpretation is that Santa could be bringing an upgrade to good ol' Iowa.

Hello all, Looking for some advice. Appreciate if Tom V. (@Tom Vodhanel;) can chime in.

I have 2 Rythmik FV15HP subs (15" ported) in front and I am looking to add 2 in rear. I feel that the FV15HPs are too big (wide) for the space I have in rear. Hence I am thinking of getting a different model. Apart form going with a 12" ported sub, I feel that Power Sound Audio V1510DF will also fit in the space I have.

I have never used a downfiring sub so not sure about it. Do they perform equally as compared to front firing and is it okay to use them with carpet (on concrete) floor?

Also, is mixing subs from different brands a major issue in real world? I have AVR with Audyssey BTW.

Thanks

I'm not Tom but I own two of his down firing subs and he has stated they perform the same as front firing and will work on virtual any surface.

Hi,

The real issue in mixing different brands of subs is not whether they are front-firing or down-firing. That should be a non-issue. It's the fact that they may have completely different port tunes and frequency responses. In this case, they would definitely have different port tunes and frequency responses, and you would be fighting the DSP that the subwoofer designers have already implemented.

You can sometimes overcome the cancellation issues that usually result, but it can take some effort with REW and a miniDSP to make it all work. Audyssey won't really be able to help you with those issues, as it is trying to EQ all of your subwoofers based on their combined frequency response. It can't treat them as individuals, for EQ purposes.

If I were you, I wouldn't do it. Looking at the specs for both subs, it appears that there is only 3/4" of an inch difference in width between the FV15HP and the V1510DF. If I were you, I would take a hard look at the space again to see if there isn't some way to make the FV15's fit into the available space. Perhaps something else could move slightly.

If you are absolutely sure that isn't possible, then I would probably consult the guys at Rythmik about making a pair of LVX12's work with your FV15's. And, even that option may require some tweaking. But, at least the overall shape of the frequency response may be a little bit closer to what you have now. And, the Rythmik subs do offer a fair bit of user-adjustability which could help.

Regards,
Mike

Dennis is doing much better as we speak, he's posting a lot more now and is planning on offering plans for DIY'ers to continue on with the BMRs and maybe a few of the lesser models. I know Jim Salk will offer the BMR in custom cabs (furniture grade) that will reflect an increase of price. Dennis was practically giving away the BMRs and doing all the work himself including assembly and crossover (hand wiring) and ran into cab suppliers and components issues. He is back home now recovering and Philharmonic Audio is no more..........His legendary designs will live on forever though...........

Thanks for the input. Will connecting front and rear subs to separate sub outs from AVR and running Audyssey fix the issue with level and phase? I intend to upgrade to Processor with Dirac or ARC in near future but as of now I have Denon with 2 sub out and Audyssey

Nope. The subs you are talking about will be out of phase to varying degrees between 10 and 30 Hz due to different port tunes and different low frequency roll offs. You will have dips, nulls, and reduction in output in this region. In other words, if you add two XV15's to your current FV15's, you will have less 10-30 Hz bass than you have with just the two. I also agree that a 1/2" difference in width is completely negligible. Just move something a 1/2".

No luck yesterday, I'm told shipping will begin today for TV36 though. I did email to ask about next day shipping, but it probably won't be read until after they ship :/ I guess I'll have one more weekend making do with little subs

I'm actually delaying my TV36 by a couple of weeks. I am going to be within a few hours of PSA and decided to return my old subs and pickup the new in person to save the shipping costs. Unfortunately, that means I will be getting them later than I would otherwise.

I was just about to email Tom about the subs because I've been thinking I would see tracking information for the last three days. But before I did I thought I would check AVS just to make sure somebody hadn't made a post with some important information. I'm glad I did. Thanks for the info @ratbuddy . Hopefully I'll see the tracking info come through today.

Yeah that's a tough call. But your patience will save you many hundreds of dollars which you can better use for future subwoofer purchases.

I am positive those TV36's are going to be amazing , but I am also positive I DO NOT NEED THEM!! lol....Im outside yesterday evening fiddling around and cleaning things up getting ready for summer pool parties , and I hear what sound like artillery off in the distance. I suspect it might be coming from inside the house as the GF was in there cleaning as well , but she hates war movies so I kind of dismissed that thought. Then they started up again and I put my hand against the outside wall and sure enough you could feel it vibrating , the subs are 20-30 feet away on the other side. I walk inside to see what the hell is going on and shes just sitting there watching HGTV at a basic volume! I dont know what kind of mix they put on HGTV commercials , but they gotta be hitting 20hz easy lol...I shake my head and walk back out to the bbq , just then my roof down drain disconnects since the plastic around the screw has broke off from me cranking one night......These subs are destroying my house....

The real bonus is getting to meet Tom and see the PSA operations. Just have to figure out how to get the TV36 into the trunk of a Civic.

Can't wait to hear the early impressions as those of you at the leading edge of the pre-order start receiving them. I thought you were picking them up.

That really is the bonus, meeting Tom and Jim was a real highlight for me going down to the shop, everything is so organized, it's like an assembly line where each procedure is so calculated and precise and especially now with in house proprietary ICE amp manufacturing and assembly with in house spray booth PSA can monitor and document every facet of the operation, Tom leaves no stone un-turned.

You can feel confident that when you purchase any product that you will receive it working as expected with no infield problems cause it doesn't leave the shop until it meets the PSA standard of excellence. In the rare occasion that a problem will surface I guarantee you that it will be corrected in a very timely matter, can't say that about other ID companies....................

I really miss Jim but I know Tom has stepped up to the plate since he has moved on and you can bet Tom is dedicated 24/7 to the task of producing the best customer service and quality of product out there bar none. I've had the pleasure of knowing both of these gentlemen for quite a while now and nothing has changed since 2012 when I purchased my first PSA product. For me that's quite an achievement to be that consistent since the beginning. You'll soon find out what PSA is capable of with the TV36s, and finally the Flagship state of the art take no prisoners new creation.............

Kudos to Tom and PSA for taking on this challenge, can't wait to hear what the naysayers have to say, Tom has no limits to his creativity nor does he have any restrictions with what can be achieved.....let the journey begin.......an insight to a brilliant mind....thank you Tom...

Cheers Jeffrey
