Hi all,


We've recently signed off on the last major component(many thanks to Scott Atwell at Fi). This process took quite a bit longer than hoped, but the end result made it more than worth the time/effort. More info will soon follow regarding the PowerX line and its upcoming launch.

Also dose anyone have any info on Fi? I can't remember if they where big in the DIY section or not.

Fi is reasonably well known, yeah. They make what is generally regarded as the best infinite baffle driver for the money, the IB3. There have also been quite a few discussion threads about their SSD and Q series drivers, as these series provide for a reasonably inexpensive system that, with proper EQ and L/T circuitry, can perform well down into the last octave when used in multiples. However, they were tested by Ricci at www.data-bass.com and were perhaps...less impressive than expected, imho.


Another thing about Fi is that they are the build house for some ID sub manufacturers, which means that they likely produce quality and reliability. The problem is, their production has not been able to keep up with demand in the last year (for whatever reason, supply side or demand side), and they often take 6+weeks to deliver to consumers, and longer to deliver to vendors. Frequent missed delivery dates has plagued them, of late.


So, while Fi builds well-regarded drivers, they're not especially good at getting them to commercial customers or consumers in a timely manner. We'll see how it ends up for PSA, but I wish them the best of luck and hope to hear some of their products soon.

Hello Tom. I've been one of your followers for many years. Back before you and Ron started SVS. I remember you starting the Nousaine List, which is still around.

Hello, Yes I spent quite a bit of time with that back in the day. I'm glad we have much more comprehensive standards in place now.

I was wondering if you and Jim Farina would have any interest in submitting your first subwoofer product to Josh Ricci who is doing some subwoofer testing for Audioholics. He seems to know how to conduct a meaningful test-review of subwoofers.

Yes, absolutely. Jim and I both strongly believe in objective standards. In fact one of our tests for any proto type is to see how it compares to the competition based on the data from those reviewers mentioned above.

Hi Shaun, Thanks! I won't have much time for a bit but I'll be around.

Scott(owner of Fi) and I have worked together on driver design many times over the last 12 years or so. He is one of the best in my opinion.

Thanks again Shaun, give us a little more time and we'll "spill the beans" so to speak on our launch products.

PS - You were extremely helpful to me many years ago when I was shopping for a sub (my first ID dealer purchase ever; I was a bit nervous about it). I ended up purchasing the SVS 16-46PC+ and am still enjoying it very much today!

Glad to help! Those 46s sure could dig deep..

Wow, that XV30 looks like a lot of sub for the money. It's always great to see another ID company open up shop. Can't wait to see some reviews for these porducts!
