XV15se Powered Subwoofer
  • With a size performance ratio that is sure to leave the industry scrambling back to the drawing board, the XV15se is an engineering phenomenon. Combining the deep bass capabilities of a vented subwoofer and the musicality of a sealed subwoofer, the XV15se excels with all source material. We could go on and on about the XV15se, but we feel it is best to let the awards speak for themselves.

  • Brent Butterworth's review of the XV15 can be found by clicking the Sound & Vision logo below.
    "Clearly, this is a subwoofer intended for hardcore home theater enthusiasts."

    "I’ve spent many hours in $200,000+ custom home theaters packed with four or six or 10 subwoofers, and my experience with the XV15 was similar to those situations. The bass was nothing less than brutal. When I played the 16-Hz low notes from the Organ Symphony, the XV15 whupped the other subs easily. The whole room pulsated, almost as if some sort of monster had plucked my home off the slab and begun shaking it like a toy. Even when I pushed the volume way up, to where the XV15 hit 115-dB peaks measured from my listening chair, I couldn’t hear a trace of distortion in the opening of Attack of the Clones."

    "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.
