  • Josh Ricci at Data-Bass.com has posted his extensive review of the XS15se. Please click on the Data-Bass logo to read his review.
    "The XS-15SE offers a lot of bang for the dollar. The driver is a high quality piece in this price range and the enclosure and finish is heavy duty. The engineering and DSP settings also seem to be well applied and thought out. It is one of the few, sealed design, powered subwoofers offered for under $1000 that is both engineered well and has enough headroom for a decent sized room. Based on the measurements and performance metrics alone it compares quite well to other commercial sealed subwoofers at 2x to 3x the price. "

    "The XS15 can land a punch in your chest that would kickstart your heart if necessary."
    "I was pleasantly surprised by the depth at which the bass was reproduced."

    "Right out of the box I liked the sound, which struck me as very detailed. Depth was pretty evident almost instantly as well, with a nice powerful rumble when the situation warranted."
    "What this company provides is a level of value that simply didn't exist a few months ago. Very rarely does a rookie step into the majors and hit a home run during their first at bat, but PSA has done just that. The XS15 is definitely worth more then the $750 they're selling it for. Pick one up soon, before these guys come to their senses and realize what they have."

    "What the 'se' version does is take all that raw output and smooth it over, making the sound more refined and deeper. You may not ultimately classify it as the cleanest or most articulate bass you've ever heard, but when taken as a whole -- especially considering the price -- what you end up with one very hard to beat combination that should easily satisfy even the most picky among us."
    "When it comes to value, PowerSound Audio is in a class by themselves."
