Instead of creating a new topic, I was wondering if I could semi hijack this one.

I am going to be building a studio in the future, and I was wondering what is the best sub on the market for Music only? I do not want anything that is movie geared. So I am looking for a very flat response, and very articulate for mixing.

I was thinking the new EP400 would fit the bill very nicely as it is a sealed design...what are your guys' thoughts? Any brand will do, I just want the best musical sub I can buy.

Is sealed generally better for music than ported?

I beleive the general consensus is sealed is better and the Fathom F113 is quite possibly the best one out there.

Robb:
I had planned on getting an EP 400 someday to supplement my Mackie 824s in the edit rack. My take on it was that subs built for "monitor use" are overpriced, I wanted something small, XLR in, and I wanted something that could go low enough to not only mix but also let me know if there's some low-end rumble with on-location recordings that I need to filter.

Elemental Designs is now offering a sealed 18" unit.

And the Rythmik / Ascend sealed 15" looks pretty good, too. I know that Rythmik offers an amp with an XLR input, but I'm not sure if it's in the fully-built Ascend models or not.

Yep Jay, I'm about a 30min drive from ED in Newton, IA. Have not had the chance to check them out yet... thanks for the link.

My whole problem is placement. Like an idiot, when I first came to this forum I didn't ask any questions about running extra sub outlets around the room. My only option is to run tons of coax around the floor, look at the new wireless subs from HSU, hope Axiom comes out with a decent wireless transmitter/receiver, or maybe some other options.

I did find a company the other day that had "flat" wire that can be used as coax.
