Power Sound Audio to be new Sponsor at HTS

Many of you will remember Tom Vodhanel, formerly of SVS. He has joined up with Jim Farina, also formerly of SVS and someone you may remember as the director of R/D at SVS, to launch Power Sound Audio. Obviously this is not "new" news, as it has been discussed previously in various places, BUT it is now "official"... AND Power Sound Audio will be a new sponsor here at HTS.

PSA will be kicking off their line with three subwoofers from their Power X line...


XS15
The XS15 is a powerful, sealed subwoofer able to deliver accurate levels of bass into the lowest audible octave. Priced at $699.

Features
• Proprietary, USA assembled, 15" high excursion driver
• Patented digital hybrid PS BASH® 500W amplifier with DSP control
• American made, highly durable, black textured finished cabinets
• 26Hz-200Hz +/-3dB (16Hz-20Hz typical in-room extension)

XV15
The XV15 vented subwoofer delivers crisp, detailed bass, while digging deep into the lowest frequencies. Combining the deep bass capabilities of a vented subwoofer and the shallow roll off of a sealed subwoofer, the XV15 is a perfect match for both movies and music. Priced at $749.

Features
• Proprietary, USA assembled, 15" high excursion driver
• Patented digital hybrid PS BASH® 500W amplifier with DSP control
• American made, highly durable, black textured finished cabinets
• 21Hz-200Hz +/-3dB (16Hz-18Hz typical in-room extension)

XV30
The largest subwoofer in the Power X line is the XV30. It produces intense levels of bass with its huge 6” Precision PortTM, two proprietary 15” drivers, and an enclosure the size of a large end table. Priced at $1249.

Features
• Exclusive, USA assembled, 15" high excursion drivers
• Patented digital hybrid PS BASH® 750W amplifier with DSP control
• American made, highly durable, black textured finished cabinet
• 21Hz-200Hz +/-3dB (16Hz-18Hz typical in-room extension)

Welcome aboard! Can't wait to see some reviews of these.

Is the American made part just for the cabinets or the entire sub?

Re: Power Sound Audio to be new Sponsor at HTS

This looks like a very serious product line and that XV30 looks absolutely nuts.
Great to have you as a sponsor PSA.

Wow, good to see you guys here. I'm sure you'll have great success with this new company. Those price points look very attractive, and I'm sure the product will deliver in spades.

It's funny you should mention that...

I initially contacted Jim Farina about getting a review unit perhaps 2 months ago. Just last week, when PSA started showing product on their website, I contacted him again. He informed me at that time they won't have any shipping product until the end of July. When they do start shipping subs he did say there's a possibility I can get an XS15 for evaluation, so I'll be able to do a review if that happens. I would certainly like to, because the subs look very intriguing. Hopefully he can make it happen. If so I'll make the PSA XS15 my first exclusive HTS review, seeing as how they're a sponsor.

-Jim

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

Virtually the entire thing is American made. IIRC, the manufacturing (but not the design) of the amp is the only thing done overseas.
