I believe it's a 10-24 barrel insert, it's bigger in size than the original on the V18s, I had the same thing happen to me and fixed it no problem. This is the insert I used to fix mine, just like new. The thread is the same just a bigger barrel since the hole is stripped out. You could put some tooth pics in the hole with wood glue and try and reinsert the noriginal wood insert or you can do it like I did with below. Good luck

Thanks for the information. My sub is currently on a soft pad in a cubby so the foot holes created by the damage are actually completely sealed as it sits. If I ever pull them out and need feet again I may give that repair a shot.

Hey Everyone,

Looooonnnng time lurker on this PSA thread. I've wanted these speakers since they first announced them. I've made it clear to my wife that for my big 30th birthday this year, I want these speakers hahaha. I'm going to go with the MTM 210ts, MTM 210C and MT110s for surrounds. Ill prob have to get 3 first. I've talked with Tom before and he thinks ill be ok with the 210C below my screen angled up. Off axis shouldn't be an issue, since My main seat is dead center on axis.


I like to listen loud and I want speakers that have way more horsepower than I'll ever need. I don't want to worry about blowing them out. I have been waiting for these forever it seems haha

Hopefully itll happen in October. Well see.


Any thoughts on my set up?



I think I have it laid out the best I can. I got the screen over a year ago and I knew I needed space to fit the 210C under it angled up. Subs youtube clips of his PSAs in action are amazing. I can hear the clarity these speakers have over youtube. I cant wait...


Last couple times ive been on the PSA site, the live chat wasn't working. Hopefully everything is ok and they are just busy.

The best way to communicate with PSA is email. Your assumption about Tom being busy is correct.

Congratulations! I'm sure you will love the amazingly capable PSA speakers. Be sure to report back.

Sorry, but I have to strongly disagree with this. I don't think you can tell how other speakers sound by listening to a (poor) recording of them on your speakers.

I think my LG v20 records audio pretty decent but I agree you really have to listen to them in person.
Tough to judge anything through a YouTube vid!

Congratulations! I know you've been waiting for a very long time to get these speakers.... I remember you were talking about it years ago and back then you said it would have to wait. But the day has finally come! You've been super patient and now you get your reward.

If you like loud then these speakers will make you very happy, because you will give out long before these speakers even begin to reach their limits. Let us know what you think when you get it all set up.

Anyone pushing these with a Yamaha receiver? Currently have a Denon 3808, outdated, but sounds good. Was considering upgrading to a newer Denon, or a Yamaha. May just wait until next year though. Any input appreciated. Thanks

I am pretty sure @basshead81 used a Yamaha in the past, he may still.

My last Audyssey unit was an Onkyo and had the same version you have on the 3808. The current version is much better and from what I understand is better than Yamaha YPAO-although I have never used YPAO.

Currently I am using an Anthem receiver but they are pricey-even pricier now than when I got my MRX510. Anthem is not big on bells and whistles but their amplifier section and ARC room correction is top notch.

I think you will get a big upgrade going to a newer version of Audyssey, I'm sure others with Yamaha and Denon experience will chime in.

gbreda, thanks for reply. Anthem is nice stuff. I’ve been happy with Denon. Never had a problem with my receiver since I bought it. Yes, the Audyssey upgrade is huge from what I’ve read. Hard not to notice those Yamaha’s weighing a good 7-8 lbs. more than comparable Denon models though.

I ran Yamaha A series AVR's for years without any issues. I currently have a Marantz 6012 and it definitely has more preout voltage then the Yamaha. Takes less amp gain to hit the same calibration levels with the subs. I like different things about each brand but the Marantz I do enjoy more for music. It seems to a better job with speaker EQ, but Audy Imo tries to do too much with the sub EQ. I think YPAO's minimalistic approach to subwoofer EQ is better for some situations.

Oh and any AVR will drive PSA speakers with ease. Hell you could probably get reference level output with a mini dac headphone amp driving them lol.

Interesting to hear that YPAO does better on subs. But then again if you take the time to properly set up the subs pre RC (as you do), it makes sense that the minimalist approach could have better results. IIRC Yahama also had a PEQ that would help as well?

Are you still using the MiniDSP with the Marantz?

I'm giving a serious look at a HT setup with 3 mtm210s and 2 of the 110 surrounds. When it comes to subs, is there a general consensus that I should get them from PSA, or are there some legit other options?

There is a general consensus that PSA makes very good/excellent subs with customer service second to none. However there are other legit options, Rythmik and HSU to name a couple.

There are plenty of legit options, including PSA, Rythmik, SVS, HSU, Monolith, JTR, Seaton, Funk and I'm sure plenty of others.

There are a lot of great ID Sub options and each company offers something a little different. What set PSA apart for me in order of importance is:

1. Customer Service - These are large purchases and I wanted to purchase from someone that was responsive and stood behind their product. Tom offers some of the best customer service I have experienced from any company.

2. Trade Up Program - I have a tendency to get bored and want to upgrade and PSA has a great trade up program. I have gone from V1501s to V1811s and now to TV36 without the hassle of trying to sell my current subs.

3. Great Performance - Most of the top ID brands offer much better performance than store bought brands. PSA is no exception.

4. Made in the USA - Although not the primary reason, I do appreciate the effort Tom has put into sources american made components and doing all assembly in the US.

Electronics: Denon X4400, Vizio M65
Subs: PSA V1811 & PSA V1801
Speakers: 3 x Chane A2.4 LCR, Klipsch Qunitet Surrounds

You'll love them. I went with 210t's, 210c, and the 110t's, the big boy surrounds . Fantastic sounding. I currently have SvS subs, one being an 2003 model from when Tom had the company. If, or should I say when, I upgrade my subs, Power Sound Audio will be my go to. Customer service is second to none.

So it sounds like you all don't like these speakers very much

I'm going to call them up and ask a few questions. For instance, the place where I would like to put the center is pretty much just a hair over 28 inches wide. I need to know if these are EXACTLY 28, or a bit more, or (hopefully) a hair less.

Certainly give Tom a call. He has been very busy recently with the roll out of their new subs. If for some reason you don't get through try email which is currently the most reliable way to get through. You should get a response in less than 24 hrs.


My 210C measures a little less than 28-1/8 inches.

I'll second what all these guys said.

1. These speakers are phenomenal in my opinion and I still smile every time I hear them and I've had them for at least four years.

2. You can pair up any subwoofer with the PSA speakers and there are many good options out there. I would look at the ID companies for the best bang for the buck. But if you go with PSA Tom will most likely knock some money off the subwoofer because you would be buying speakers already. Another thing to consider is PSA subwoofers are both powerful but they also have a very nice sound signature to them (trust me, not all subs sound the same).

3. This next one is huge... PSA Customer Service is second to none. You don't think about until you need it but if you need it Tom will be there for you.

Just got off the phone with Power Sound. Talked to Tom. He let me waste lots of his time, very nice guy. I am measuring a few things in my house tonight, but I think I may take the plunge. He said the speakers are exactly 28 inches before the finish is applied, so he estimated 28 and 1/32. Thats brutally close to the amount of space I have under my tv, so I am going to try to measure precisely and hope it fits, or try to come up with a way to fit it with carpentry.

I'm sure you really want 210's and I am not sure about the room size but the 110's are no slouch for LCR duty

Room is really big, plus it is open to the kitchen, open to the hallway, open to the piano room, etc.... its basically the entire first floor of my house. Acoustically it is no bueno. My rudimentary sense of audio tells me to put big speakers in there.

I will probably shoot a 360 video and send it to Tom before final purchase to see if he thinks I'm right.
