I'm playing the M2s full range spliced at the EP400's 'High Level Inputs' (Speakers IN) from my Tube Integrated Amp. There is no filtering provided to the M2s by the EP400 nor is there any EQ provided by my Tube Amp - no processing whatsoever.

I would have preferred to have filtered 'Speaker Level Out' like my twin Velodyne subs have, but the EP400 doesn't have that feature.

Anyway, I've never heard any nasties from this system since I got it last summer as I surmise that the M2s roll off naturally below their lower limit & don't suffer any negative consequences. While I've never felt any bass response deficits, I believe that twin EP400s can only enhance the listening experience I would think...

Very cool, Tom!! I love the idea of the twin EP400s in your stereo set-up. Enjoy!

Nothing wrong with the M2's running with their natural roll off in combination with the 400, the M2s have a fairly steep roll off. I would set the 400 crossover on the amp at either the 100 or 80 hz setting going with which ever sounds best.

I think that I have my present single 400 set at 80 Hz. Seems to sound just fine that way...

Yes, as Jason points out, the M2s have a pretty steep roll off a little below 80Hz, so together with the 80Hz roll off on the 400's low-pass filter this forms a pretty good "natural" crossover.

After I just read the latest newsletter, I realized that I got the 20% savings deal on my EP400 order.

Gotta like that...

Wohooo! With the savings, you can order another set of M2s (at a 20% discount) for the bathroom. grin

You mean for our newly renovated bathroom that cost $25K?? That was a bargain compared to the new kitchen that was finished last week for $41K.

My speaker purchases are minor compared to all of this other household stuff; however, we have to get it all done before my wife retires next year when we both will be pensioners...

I guess that our renos are not that significant when considering that our house is probably worth the ridiculous market price of $600K or more - about 3X the price that we paid in 1996. At the moment, there are a couple of waterfront houses across the street that are up for sale for $887K & $995K.

Our 'Austerity Program' starts next year when my wife finally retires from full time nursing.

Waiting patiently for my EP400 to be shipped...
