The XV15-Base 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. Assembled in America with mostly USA built components, the XV15 is destined to be a class leader.

Due to the variances in video monitors, the wood veneer photographs are a close, but not an exact representation of our finished products. Differences in color, grain, appearance and texture are inherent in all natural woodwork, and should be expected.

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 XV15 experiences a shallow 10dB/octave roll-off starting at 30Hz when measured in a ground plane (quasi-anechoic) environment. Once the XV15 is placed in a medium to large sized room, true extension to 16Hz-18Hz is typical. This boost in low end output is due to the phenomenon known as "room gain".

"Power Sound has come out swinging with the XV-15 and if the rest of their line-up is as good as the XV-15 is I’d expect they will be doing quite well for themselves in their first year of operation."
"Apparently $799 can buy an astonishing amount of performance in the subwoofer kingdom these days."
CJ, Home Theater Lounge Administrator, posted an excellent review of the XV15. Check it out by clicking the Lounge's logo.
"The XV15 also plays low and loud. I mean it pounds out movie SFX, hard."
"The XV15 is what I would call a no-nonsense subwoofer design with design emphasis on what matters from a performance perspective."
I love the Satin black look. It is textured and very well done. Immediately getting them out of the boxes the WAF factor was a huge success. She complimented their appearance multiple times through the evening.
The XL Omnidroid is smashing through town launching lasers. The impact the lasers have is creating really incredible depth. There was so much missing before that I never noticed. Simple things stand out as well like the Omnidroid Breaking through Frozone's ice wall. It has strength now. Physically I am watching and grinning ear to ear, but mentally I am tearing through my abundant Bluray collection.
My setup just got pumped up full of steroids and came back ready to bring it. These subs belong here, I would have paid 3k for them if I knew what they were going to do. the money I spent on them is negligible, the value they carry is worth much much more. I pushed the XV15s very hard today and they didn't blink. Bulletproof.
