Jason. I thought you felt that the PB12 had some bloat/boom compared to the EP350 V2?


Not so much bloat/boom, as it was just hitting very hard and was very tight in doing so. I didn't like it as much for music because of this, it felt more like the boom boxes rolling down the road but it wasn't boomy at all, just very punctual, you could really tell it was on. I played with it some before sending it back and I managed to get it to smooth out, it just took a little work compared to, as has been stated, the Axiom subs, which just seem to blend right in from the start.

Thank you John - that must be the one Randy was referring to, and I hadn't seen it before, so thanks for the link.

Well I went for the EP350. Some of the other brands had rear and/or side ports. Where I hope to "hide" this will work best with a front firing/front ported cab. Also I figured staying with the Axiom sub "might" work together with the M80's for music.

Anyway, I haven't heard anything bad and just that I may have been able to hit a bit lower with another brand. Just hope it hits low enough. And since I have nothing to compare to and don't know anyone with a system even close to what this will be, I guess it will sound great to us.

The Ep350 is a very admirable performer and I have listened to one with M80s, they work very well together, when calibrated, like all main sub pairings. Do you have an SPL meter to level match them together?

Audyssey MultEQ in-room acoustic correction system
Audyssey Dynamic Volume automatic volume-leveling system
Audyssey Dynamic EQ automatic tonal balance adjustment system

Shouldn't this stuff take care of that?

Yes, Bob; the basic calibration part of the automatic calibration/room equalization systems works very well and is possibly more accurate than "checking" the results manually with a separate SPL meter. It's still nice however, to have an SPL meter to know the levels at which you're listening.

I guess I'll have to look into that some more as the time draws nearer. How about a link to a reasonable meter?

Any Radio Shack should sell both an analog or digital meter. I would recommend the analog model, but don't have a part# handy. They cost about $49 at the Shack.
