My HT/Recroom is around 8,000 cu ft and my previous EP500 did a fine job filling that space. I currently have 3 subs, an EP600 and 2 EP350v3's arranged around the room. One sub in any room will not even out the frequency response for all seating positions, this can only be accomplished by multiple subs placed correctly in a room.

Where in Sweden are you from? I want to visit there sometime, though I'm not exactly sure where. I imagine Stockholm, but I wonder where else I'd want to see.


I am from a small town in southern Sweden called Lund. The best thing with southern Sweden is how close it is to Denmark and Copenhagen specifically.

Stockholm is one of my favorite cities, Gothenborg (Göteborg in Swedish) is also a very very nice city - both are fun in the summer but stay away in the winter :).

Then I would do Copenhagen

One trick for traveling to Europe is knowing that US laws require an airline to go to their home country. So British Airways has to fly to England, Air France to France, SAS to one of the Scandinavian Countries. Why do I say this? If you fly Air France to London they will charge the same as BA to be competitive, BUT they will fly to Paris and then put you on a flight to London. You just tell them you want a 5 day transit stop in Paris going there / coming back and you get 2 cities for the price of 1.... You could even make it longer and fly somewhere else and come back to Paris then board your flight home / alternatively drive around in Europe.

Sorry long OT post \:\)

I know I've heard the name, but I don't know where. I listen to a lot of Swedish bands, so maybe one of them mentioned it.

That's a great tip. Hopefully I'll remember it whenever I get around to visiting.

I really want to hit England and Sweden (simply because they seem to be the music capitals of the world these days), but I'm sure I'd enjoy plenty of places over there. I have an online friend in Amsterdam who I'm sure would love to see me. I just need to convince enough friends to go with me on this great European tour.

Before it sinks completely. I regret not taking a side trip to Venice when I had the chance.

You naughty boy!

I have been to Oslo, Copenhagen and Stolkholm, all in January. Its cold. By the geology, Oslo could be a city in northern Ontario. Stolkholm would be a stunning city in the summer.

Another girlfriend your not telling us about? ;\)

Amsterdam is my favourite city in Europe. Its worth the visit just to go to the Van Goch Museum.

Charles, my father's side of the family is from Sweden and I've been there a couple of times.

Last time I went, my sister, wife and I spent a few days in Copenhagen, then took a ferry to Malmo, Sweden. Sweden has a great train system which we took to Gothenborg for a couple of days, then to Stockholm for a couple of days.

Both cities are beautiful and the people are great.

My dad took a Canal / Lock trip from Goteborg to Stockholm once, which he enjoyed immensely but said that someone younger might find a bit slow unless they were with a spouse or S.O. and would enjoy the relaxed pace of travel.

Hi,

Never made it to Sweden but I used to own a lovely classical guitar that was made in Goteborg, Sweden. I can't remember the brand name--Goya, perhaps? It was stolen when my house was burglarized in Toronto.

Female, yes, but unfortunately she likes other females. She has a girlfriend who would run away with Regina Spektor, though, so it's not too far off from dating me.
