The rolloff in the EP400 is not typical with what you see in a sealed subwoofer especially in a box and driver of that size. Its a small box and a 8" driver.

The reason why its not typical is because the EP400 uses DSP processing and it is trading off output for extension. The EP400 extends really deep for a subwoofer of its size but if you notice it is still a sub that is recommended for a small/medium room or den and not meant to replace the EP500 in a large room for example.

I'm not really sure the exact reason why the brick wall filter is employed but it is probably to keep the sub operating within its proper bandwidth as its specifically tuned for extension. I could be totally wrong though.

I've voiced my opinion of Axiom products, both positive and negative aspects. But I haven't once been put down as negative and told to go away. It's all in the attitude and presentation. I'm sure if we look hard enough, we'll find something negative about everything.

That's the great thing about the universe. It all sucks and it's all great. It's also what sucks about the universe.

Black holes suck the worst.

It's quite obvious that gtpsuper lacks tact, but the fact that he was immediately set upon by the regulars was bound to get his hackles up and escalate things rather than return them to a reasoned discussion.

We all love Axiom's products and it's only natural that we want to jump to defend them when we feel someone's opinion of them is misinformed. When that happens, before you hit Submit on your post, take a step back. What is the motivation behind this guy's post? Did he really intend to disparage all us Axiom customers or was that just an unintended consequence of poorly chosen words? Does he simply have an axe to grind? If so, don't lay yourself down and become his whetstone.

Someone said "It's all in [your] attitude," and that's true, but it works both ways. Whether it was cast intentionally or accidentally, you don't have to take the bait.

Just look at it for a long time and think "Damn, he's overcooking it. It's going to burn and make the whole house smell for a week!"
