Nope there are 7 pages on the thread....seems odd. When I click the link it takes me to the correct page.

Perhaps try searching on posts by my username and look for one that is titled "Just received my M80's..."

if the only thing you don't like about the EP500 is the looks, then you can install it with the driver and port facing the wall and leaving maybe 1 foot distance between the two.

i've seen a test done this way in a good Internet audio magazine.

i think the EP500 would fill your needs.

Edit: i just checked my config and it was 20 posts/page;
i changed it so default: 10 posts/page.

Here's a low quality picture of the EP350 (EP175 on the left), that I bought a couple of years ago. It's the same cabinet as the EP500. This one is with custom vinyl of Cinnamon Beech. It looks much, much better with a good quality picture. You can pay an additional, $75 or so and get it in something other than Black or the standard cherry.

Daniel,

I have come from an ep350 and then dual ep500's. Just as a suggestion, you might want to look into CHT passive subs with an outboard amp. They do sell to Canada, not sure about shipping costs, but for the money, I would highly recommend the sealed 18" SS-18.1 with the Dayton amp.

I purchased dual 18.1's with dual amps as well. See the link below for my review, this purchase stopped my search for the ultimate bass for movies and music dead in its tracks. My house could not take any more, believe me. Also see CHT product review at hometheatershack.com as well, good luck with your decision.

Those are the High Gloss Cherry. I believe they did discontinue the finish. I probably got the last pair smile

As to the CHT's, I would be in the same situation as the HSU's since they are located in the US. Plus the additional expense of an amp which I really don't have room for. But thanks for the recommendation

Daniel, I always use the grill on my EP500. At bass frequencies there's no sonic disadvantage in doing so.

and
