Power Sound Audio Introduces Its Latest Subsonic Creation: V3600I

Power Sound Audio (PSA) has revealed details about another bone-rattling subwoofer, the V3600I. Today, we were lucky enough to catch-up with Tom Vodhanel (founding co-owner) to learn more about the company’s latest subsonic beast. The company is offering an incredible dollar-saving pre-order deal, so read on.

The V3600I is replacing the XV30Fse in PSA’s line-up. According to Vodhanel, the XV30Fse’s output below 50Hz was nearly similar to the popular V1500’s output in the same range, making it replaceable. The V3600I’s overall physical appearance is very similar to the XV30Fse, with a few twists. Most notably, Power Sound Audio is outfitting the V3600I with dual-stacked proprietary 18-inch drivers. This proprietary driver features a die-cast aluminum frame, a 3-inch (four layer) copper voice coil with Kapton heat shielding, an extremely linear and dynamic motor system, and a vented back plate to maximize airflow. To power the drivers, PSA is using an ICEpower amplifier with 1700 watts of power and custom, onboard, Digital Signal Processing (DSP). The amp has quite a few functional knobs and switches, including power on/off/auto, gain, delay, crossover, room size (small/large), and left/right inputs.

The V3600I is slightly larger than the XV30Fse (cabinet dimension-wise) at 20-inches W x 24-in D x 45-in H, and features a front-side slot port on the bottom. PSA says that a large removable grill designed to cover the front baffle (down to the port) will ship with the sub. They are only planning on offering the V3600I in a standard black satin finish; wood veneer options are on hold at this time. The black finish is standard on PSA speakers and plays extremely well with light controlled home theater environments.

A quick glance at initial output measurements illustrates how devastating the low the V3600I can travel. If you were previously considering an XV30Fse, you’ll be thrilled to see that the V3600I offers nearly double the output from 15Hz to 125Hz, with an average of 5.8dB gain in the 16 to 100Hz range. You can almost bank on room gain helping to push the V3600I to much lower territory once it begins to find its way into home theater rooms.

PSA is offering the V3600I at a tempting pre-order price of $1799 (single) and $3,499 (dual) until June 15th. After that date, pricing will increase to $2299 (single) and $4199 (dual). Do the math and you’ll see that a pre-order dual purchase offers a savings of $700…a chunk of change that could easily be used for a host of other home theater upgrades!

For more information, contact PSA through the following link, or visit PSA on the web to see more images of this great looking sub.

PSA has released final DSP shaping on the V3600i.

From PSA:
"This chart also includes a few different settings on the "room size" control too. Remember, the "room size" only cuts.
So the top curve is set to LARGE. I've found best overall sound quality in our office (about 4000 cu-ft) is with the room
size set to about its mid-point on the rotation."

Re: Power Sound Audio Introduces Its Latest Subsonic Creation: V3600I

I am so drooling in my chair right now.....I knew we should not be doing a wedding, in Niagara falls no less for our daughter. She is marrying a nice man to be sure but this sub would make me very happy. Can we ask for our money back, the wedding is not until Saturday ? I could buy one easy that way.

Good Listening

I'm not reading any more of this thread and I hope June 15 arrives soon, very soon. At least I'm out of the 30 day return window, that helps. Jack, now you may be golden...you could slide right in here and waa-laa...

I am really hoping to see a test of this subwoofer at data-bass at some point in the future. IMO the specs look great and the intro pricing is really nice for those who have the funds available.

Brilliant idea, if only I had read it a bit earlier, they are now married and the money has been....ummm....used by a factor of about 9 or so. Oh well, I will have to read about these and get out there and sell some premium blood.

Good Listening

Too funny, I think I slid right on by, just like yourself. Hey maybe we can form a two man march on the factory and scare them into thinking we are important ?? Whatcha think ???
Maybe we could look tough or I could bring along my friend. In case you were confused, I am the one on the right.


Good Listening
