Any particular reason why you'd like FF versus DF? Some just like to watch the driver moving at high excursions. Nothing wrong with that...just curious if there were any other reasons?

Don't get me wrong, your down firing PSA subs rumble the flooring and furniture in the house. I've heard stories of front firing subs, from various manufacturers and DIY, thumping the chest and of course, driver movement at high excursions... (GUILTY!)

From a performance perspective there really isn't much difference. For example, remove the base on your XV15 and flip it on its side....and it will sound essentially the same. There won't be any more/less floor rumbling or chest pounding..

I know the "best for $299" threads are popular but we really have no/little interest in competing at that price point. You mainly have two groups of product there. 1) the stuff made for $100 or less(manufacturing cost)...2) huge companies simply selling off outdated stock at a loss. Neither represents an attractive market to us..

Jim Farina's been spending a bit of time on several designs we could bring to the market in the $499 range. The harsh reality is this product line would need to be manufactured overseas though. We have plenty of experience/contacts to proceed in that direction...and we may do so at some point. However in the near term(next 3-9 months) the majority of our development focus will be elsewhere as we put the finishing touches on a few things.
I definitely agree that PSA shouldn't venture into the $299 fart box market, but I do really believe you have solid potential in the $499 space. The PB1000, and to a lesser extent the SB1000, have fired out of the gate and seem to be doing quite well. That tells me there's demand and sales to be had, yet there aren't too many quality players at that price point. You and Jim are already known for your value position, so my gut tells me you two could develop something very special in that range.

I do know you're both stretched with your current development projects, and you must be getting leery of working 8 days each week, but I would encourage you to give it some serious thought. The lead time on a product manufactured overseas is quite substantial -- something I'm sure you know far better then I -- so it would be a long time regardless, but I get the sense your offering would be very well received.
- Jim

Watched The Man With The Iron Fist last night. While the movie isn't amazing there is a pretty good amount of bass in it your PSAs will love. Quite a few sweeps. Some of it felt unnecessary but it was fun while it was there!!

I been having some quality time with mine.
I'm enjoying my XS30, trying some Movies (Blu's / DVD"S) and Musics, sound is fantastic.
NO problems or complaints.

I'm very happy with mine. The only complaint I have is....I don't have enough time to use them.

That's really excellent to hear Crazykat. I know we went through a lot of emails trying to ensure you would be satisfied with whatever upgrade you pursued..

Hey guys, I'm a XS15 owner and love it. I'll get back to that later, but on this topic, my thoughts are not pricing of a new model sub, but I'm looking at it from the footprint. A lot of people don't have much room and there are great subs in small packages. Would that not be a good market to compete in?

That's likely an area we would look into if we pursue the $500(ish) MSRP market. Jim and I toss ideas back and forth...eventually something sticks.
