My favourite little monster sub - EP400 - isn't mentioned in the updates.

Anything new with that model?

Hi Exlabdriver,

I can speak to the EP400 for you. It is going to get some further modifications later this year. For now it does have the new amp in it like all the other new models and it was already a sealed design.

Ian, with only a 2 db max room SPL difference between the EP400 and EP500, why is the EP400 only recommended for smaller rooms? Is there still a big difference in capability between the two models for larger spaces, particularly for music only?

Thanks for the detailed info Andrew. It sounds like a major shift in design philosophy and I can't wait to hear some reviews from the first board members to try them out.
