XS15-Base

XS15-Base Powered Subwoofer
  • The XS15-Base is a powerful, sealed subwoofer able to deliver accurate levels of bass into the lowest audible octave. Although the XS15-Base can be used in large rooms, we recommend it for medium to small rooms. The black sand textured cabinet and down-firing design allows it to blend into almost any decor.

  • FREQUENCY RESPONSE

    * 2 meter ground plane (1/6 Octave smoothing)

    LONG TERM OUTPUT COMPRESSION

    IN ROOM VS GROUND PLANE

    * The two curves in the graph depict the difference between a simulated in-room response and the measured ground plane response. The XS15 experiences a shallow 8dB/octave roll-off starting at 40Hz when measured in a ground plane (quasi-anechoic) environment. Once the XS15 is placed in a small to medium sized room, true extension to 16Hz-20Hz is typical. This boost in low end output is due to the phenomenon known as "room gain".
  • Dale Rasco from the Home Theater Shack posted his review of the two XS15's we sent as part of the $10,000 Home Theater System Giveaway. Please click the Home Theater Shack logo to read the entire review.
    "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."
