Re: Power Sound Audio XS15

Hey Ray, I think it would make a difference but to what degree I'm not really sure. Maybe 5%?

Re: Power Sound Audio XS15

Thanks.

How did the in room freq response of this sub compare to the SB13 Ultra?

I see a graph for the XS15 but did not see one for the SB13. I have 2 of the SB13+'s and have thought of adding 2 sealed subs to a different room. Seeing that the XS15 is less than half the price of the SB13 ultra I am wondering how they compare.

Re: Power Sound Audio XS15

Hi Dale,
Love what you did to your street! It appears you like the Axiom subs. Considering budget, would you get EP350 or XS15? Nothing else considered. Maybe a second down the road. I've been in sub dilemma for close to a year now. Movies/music %50/50. I don't want to have to change things when I go between the two. Keep it simple. Thinking about svspb12 nsd, and hsu vtf3 mk4. that is pretty much it.
Thanks

Re: Power Sound Audio XS15

Well for my application in our family living room, wife approval factor was 50% of the decision. Aesthetically the EP350 was much more appealing. If it was for performance and response only in my home theater I would have chosen the PSA XS-15's. hope that helps.

Re: Power Sound Audio XS15

Thanks for a quick reply Dale, I appreciate it. Just one more thing. Any other thoughts on the other subs mentioned compared to the XS15?
Thanks

Re: Power Sound Audio XS15

My favorite sub so far this past six months has got to be the SVS SB 13 Ultra. But that is in terms of sound quality and response. The PSA XS15's however are, IMO, a better overall value. I also really enjoyed my time with the KEN KREISEL DXD12012. Absolutely incredible response in room, but at a premium.

Re: Power Sound Audio XS15

Thanks for your input Dale. One more thing, my mains are Vandersteen 2Ce sig. Would that make you lean in one direction or another? The Kreisel's are definitely at a premium!

Re: Power Sound Audio XS15

I think with the response of the Vandersteen's I would go sealed for a smoother more accurate response. It's not as if your speakers can't provide a majority of the mid-range bass. XS15s
