"The PSA Output Factor" XS15se ($750) vs. S1500 ($950)
Right up front, what makes the S1500 $200 better? Using the PSAOF, the 16Hz to 100Hz give the S1500 a sliver of an advantage of 121.9dB to 121.6dB for the XS15se. Across the PSA chart of ranges, the S1500 has less than a 1dB advantage over the XS15se, with the exception of the 1.2db advantage in the 63hz-100Hz range. If I'm using 80Hz as my receiver XO, that 1.2dB is probably also less than a 1dB advantage.
I understand that the S1500 is a new model, using a new amp and such, but is there something other than what's on paper that makes this very slim increase worth an extra $200? Anybody owned both and able to give their view? A bit more extension?
