Apart from cost and size, is there any advantage to the EP175 over the EP350? I'm considering the EP350 since my room is open to other spaces and the cost difference isn't that great. But I notice that the EP175 is "Joe's Pick" and wonder if its performance may be superior in some way even though it has slightly less bass extension and the ability to fill larger spaces.

I would consider box subs from Hsu and SVS as well.

I prefer the EP350. Louder and more bass extension.

I've never noticed the EP175 being any 'tighter' from the two times I auditioned it, but I have never done a head to head between the two subs in my home, so take my advice with that in mind.

I would follow the advice to consider the box sub by SVS

I opted for the Hsu VTF-2, and LOVE it.

I've never heard those subs from the other manufacturers that guys talk about here, but I'm sure they're right about them being very good. If you plan on getting the rest of your HT system now from Axiom, however, you can get a 5% discount on the whole thing. If you spend $2000, thats $100 off. Made my EP350 about $500. Worth it at that price?

bigwill, if you like the sub and it's performance, then you can't put a price on it. i too have the ep350 which came as a complete set, and have no complaints.

Exactly. No complaints AND only $500. That's what I should have said.
