Thanks Basshead for your explanation.

Looks like 12 series is the way to go. Any new amp being designed/planned?

My friend is building his own HT and had already ordered dual V1510's for subs so the bass was already taken care of but he was still in the process of speaker shopping. So I invited him and his wife over to hear my PSA speakers. I played them a lot of different demo scenes and it wasn't long before they decided that's exactly what they wanted. They said the PSA sound quality was incredible. They felt the speakers were so much more alive and immersive than anything else they had ever heard. So he asked me to help him decide what to buy and how to set it up. We decided to go with 210's for the front stage (L/C/R), 110SR's for the side surrounds and MT110's for the rear channels. Monday his seven speakers arrived and he said it felt like Christmas. I've included a few pics. What a pretty sight.

You sold me 😊. I have one of the original S1500 and it has been a great sub. The sealed 18 has been on my wish list since the day they were introduced. The new and improved woofers put it farther up the list and reading positive reviews from owners such as Hop put it over the top.

The S1812 will replace my V1500 in my HT system. I am not very astute on all the tech stuff, I just like reasonable bass. We don’t listen at extremely high master volume, so I am thinking the S18’s lower output under 30 hz will not be a significant issue. If I am correct, the S18 will be stronger above 30hz than my V1500 and overall sound quality with the new woofer will be superior.

I originally ordered the S1512 because I wanted to reduce the footprint and weight of my system components. Guess I didn’t do too good of a job on that front, but that S1812 kept calling my name. I sold the wife on the fact that it is 5 inches shorter. Overall weight is close to break even between the 1500 and 1812, as the new woofers are a little bit heavier. This may be my last HT woofer, so I didn’t want to buy the S1512 and regret not getting the 1812. I am however paying close attention to that Value 12 that’s due out. I have a 2 channel system in a small sealed office that includes an SVS SB-12 NSD. It does a decent job in that room and system, but I am thinking the new PSA 12 will likely be much better. Thanks for all the advice guys. This forum is a great resource.
Your only going to get one sub for the HT? My advice is that you will come out way ahead with a pair of S1512's. Upgrade your S1500 to 1512 and add a 1512.

Nothing beat a good demo, on a properly calibrated system
I am sure your friend, will enjoy his new system in his/and her new HT. And also knowing, how much you contribute on this thread. That you will help them, set-it up properly.

Well, I'm a dad now, and I'm thinking it might be time to downsize my main system a bit. I've got two TV36ipal in the living room, which are awesome, but they take up room I think I'll want for kid stuff. Thinking a single Value 21 tucked in the corner might be the way to go, but won't know till it's revealed.. Maybe a single S3012 even, definitely looking for something with a little more placement flexibility than the TV36s :P

Congratulation for been a new father, and hope mother is doing fine!!!

While it will be sad, to see the two TV36ipal go. Some time as parents, we need to do some personal sacrifice.
Mine was selling my motorcycle, to buy a car. And yes, I did miss riding for many years. But never regret my decision

Wishing you and your wife all the best. And a very healthy life to the new born!!!

Congratulations on fatherhood. I agree with Darth, there are many sacrifices that comes with being a parent but they are all worth it. And to be honest, my absolute favorite thing about this hobby is sharing it with my family. In my case its going on three generations. My dad has always really been into audio and that was passed down to me. And now my three daughters all love big powerful subwoofers and great speakers.

And what's really cool is they now invite their friends over to watch movies in the HT which I think is absolutely awesome. I love walking down there and seeing 8 to 10 teens watching movies safe in my home instead of being out somewhere getting into trouble. So @ratbuddy , even if you have to downsize a little now, it'll be worth it because you'll still be able to share this hobby with your family for years to come.

LOL... To give you an idea of just how much my kids love this stuff, a couple of years ago I gave one of my daughters a good set of speakers for Christmas... she actually teared up she was so happy.

Congrats on the new addition. My son's 30 now, and watching him grow into the person he's become has been the greatest joy of my life. Even more than my HT, just barely.

Congratulations! I have a two year old & 4 year old... They are the reason why I got MT110 & 210C for my front stage and v1510 ( soon to be two V1512) instead of 3 210T for the front stage and two TV36... Kids... They take up a lot of of space and money!

Kids wouldn't make me give up my subs...sounds selfish I know. I would lay the TV36 on it's side and make it a makeshift changing table if need be. lol

One of my "dad-isms" is "kids ruin everything". I tell my son that all the time. We're very close so I can get away with it.....

We all talk big until you have them. Then you'll give up anything for them and your whole orbit is around them. Then the trick is to not let them know your whole world revolves around them, and not to be a helicopter parent, or they'll turn into helpless brats.

I appreciate the recommendation, and I understand the benefits a dual setup would provide. With my current setup, in the living room, one sub is all I can fit. If I ever build a theater room in the basement, things will change. I have been using a single V1500 for years, with good results, at least in my two main seating positions. I am only changing because I want to experience the new woofer upgrade. The trade in program was hard to pass up. I was encouraged by Hopinator's assessment of his sealed 18 in his room, so I am hoping I will be slightly better off overall with the new S1812 than the old V1500.

If I am looking at this correctly, the S1812 will lose 2-3 db of output vs. the V1500 in the 16-25 hz range. In contrast, it should be 3+ db stronger 30 db and up. We don't listen anywhere near reference, and not looking to rattle the windows, so I think those numbers might play in my favor. Overall sound quality of the 1812 is expected to be improved vs. my old V1500. I have room to fit the 1812's three additional inches of width, and I'm hoping the five inches less height results in a slightly improved WAF. The jury is still out on that one.

Last week, I hooked up my S1500 that I use for 2 channel. I watched John Wick 3 with it and was pretty impressed. Not as impressive as my V1500, but still very capable. That gave me confidence the S1812 will satisfy my modest expectations.

2 channel : Anthem Integrated 225, Bluesound Node 2i, Monitor Audio Silver 8, PSA S1500, Marantz SA8005,
HT: Yamaha RX-A1060, Klipsch RP-260, Polk RTIA1 rears, RP-450C, PSA V1500, Onkyo C-S5VL
Office: Yamaha A-S701, Bluesound Node 2, Monitor Audio Silver 2, SVS SB12-NSD, Marantz CD6006

Was this a surprise?? Or did actually becoming a dad hit you with reality more so than planning to be a dad? Bringing the baby home and seeing these giant speakers make you think "What have I done?? Im totally unprepared for this!!??" lol...

Her due date isn't until today but she was born September 23rd and has been in the NICU since. Hoping she'll come home within a week. I didn't realize I needed more room in the living room until I started assembling and unpacking all her stuff like her swing etc.

Best wishes for your family. My son was 6 weeks early, 3lbs 6oz when born. He was in the NICU for about 5 weeks. The first time I saw him he gripped my index finger and the width of his hand was less than the distance from my fingertip to the first knuckle. I had never seen a baby so small.


There were a few anxious moments, but everything worked out all right, and he's well over 200lbs now. I'm sure things will work out well for all of you also.

I'm glad I raised my lil dude to appreciate home theater and all my/his equipment.

It's definitely doable!

So I am the new owner of the 2 xs30se's from the recent outlet listing. Subs arrived today and they were supposed to have the upgraded ICE amps, but actually have the original BASH amps. Tom was very apologetic and offered to even refund my money and pay for return shipping! I told him that I am definitely keeping these monsters.

He offered me the following options:

1. $450 refund and keep the BASH amps which would mean I only paid $725 per sub which is a stupid good deal.

or

2. Send the ICE amps to me at no extra charge.

So, my question for you all is this, should I take the money and run or do you think the ICE amps make that big of a difference?

Thanks in advance!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you wait for your daughter to come home.

I understand the need for room but I was able to make a living room set up work in my home by turning our dining room into a kids play room. I figured since we hardly ever used the dining room for dining why not let the kids use it. Then after they grew out of a need for a play room and we felt we would actually use the room for dining I repainted, put up chair rail and crown molding and turned it into a nice dining room. It was a win/win.
