The largest subwoofer in the Power X line is the XV30. Nothing about this subwoofer is small. A huge 6” Precision PortTM, two proprietary 15” drivers and an enclosure the size of a large end table, the XV30 produces intense levels of bass that will cause you to rarely wonder if this is enough subwoofer. We say "rarely" because, like some enthusiasts, we also suffer from the addiction of extremely clean, dynamic bass.

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 XV30 experiences a shallow 10dB/octave roll-off starting at 30Hz when measured in a ground plane (quasi-anechoic) environment. Once the XV30 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".

"Everything about this sub is overkill, and that's why I love it!"
"You know when I first emailed Tom I asked for a sub that demanded respect. Like the sound of thunder, when it hits it reminds you of your childhood when you hid underneath the blankets. Something that shot fear into you, something that shook your very soul. Ladies and Gentlemen that is the XV30. This sub scares the **** out of me. It demands respect. Tom you delivered, job well done!"
