Ok, love to hear from Andrew or Ian on this, however there are quite a few very knowledgeable forum users too.

The room is 11.5 x 18.5 x 7.5
My M80 ar spaced 1'6" from the sides 9" from the front wall and 8.5' apart.
I sit 10ft away dead centre.

If you had $4000 - $5000 budget for subs what would be the best value.

4 - EP350
3 - EP500
2 - EP500 Front and a EP800 Horizontal rear
2 - EP800 one front one rear horizontal
2 - EP500 Front 2 - EP350 Rear

3 - SVS PB12 Plus
2 - SVS PB13 Ultras'

just to mix it up abit

Troy, of the specific choices you list, and if you're willing to go with a $5,000 budget, I'd choose the two EP800s. However, I'd add another suggestion for that budget area: four EP500s, in a four corner arrangement.

I'd start with 2 EP500s and see how you like it.

Sorry I can't help with value as value is wholly in the eye of the beholder. I get chastised all the time on other sites for owning 2 X EP400s where all the cheap bastards out there argue that there are much better values.

I purchased one EP400 & after some time enjoying it, I found that I liked it so much that I ordered a second one. It is the brand & model that I wanted for my room & given their stellar musical performance, are worth absolutely every penny to me...

Like JohnK, my first instinct would be two EP800s. Lowest bass coupled with decent smoothing.

Charles, your FIRST instinct would be at least 4 EP800's.

This is actually going to be a problem in my new space, now that my refrigerator is going where one of my subwoofers was going to go.I wonder how I'll be sorting this one out.

The trapezoidal shape means more beer up front for easier access.

And you can more easily hide the GOOD beer in the back where friends family can't find it.
