Hi everyone,

Jason (jakewash) and Greg (framer) pulled me out of my working trance for an afternoon of sub auditions. Greg brought his EP350v3 over and Jason "borrowed" a 15' Velo 15" from FutureShop. We watched scene 15 of U-571 and The Eagles Farewell Tour I to compare these two with my EP600.

Let's get the Velodyne out of the way first. It's boomy, rumbly and loud and absolutely perfect for the undiscerning listener. The best features are that it comes with a remote to allow you to turn it off and it's also quite easy to package up for a return . As I'm writing this, I am reminded of the final scene between Creedy and Chancellor Sutler in V for Vendetta. Creedy exclaims "Disgusting!".

The big surprise for me was the 350v3. Axiom nailed this one boys and girls. I am so happy for Greg because I think this is one great sub. It's perfect for home theatre and music. And it looks great in the high gloss cherry as you can see in the photo below.

Ian and Amie may get upset with me for saying this but I always strive to be honest so here goes: in my 4,000 cubic foot room, the 350v3 sounded better than the 600. The 350v3 sounded tighter and was just as smooth and powerful as the 600. And of course it's priced $1000 less.

I don't want to get into technical arguments about DSPs and enclosure volumes (because I don't have the time) but let's just say that higher technology and larger box volume do not necessarily equate to better sound.

I am very pleased to see that Axiom has designed a sub for home theatre and music that is affordable for the masses and is suitable for 80% of the home theatre spaces out there.

I'll let Jason fill in details about the Velo and compare the 350 to the 400. If I was in the market for a sub today, the EP350v3 would be the one for me.

BTW, I'm still loving my audiobytes.

No kidding. That should make you even more excited about your incoming sub.
