I think that a good performance sub is so important that I just snagged one of the EP800s from the Refurb Store. Unbeatable value for a High Gloss Rosewood model.

I will use it in concert with my modest twin 10" Velo Subs to give me <20Hz capability that I haven't had all along.

Cool snag. I'd love to test out those japanese kodo drum vids on a good sub setup. Would be visceral I'd think! grin

TAM, I thought you had 400's?

Cool that you got an EP800. That should be quite impressive!

I would trade my cat to get one of those!

Edit: Oooops, wrong thread! smile

I do have a couple of EP400s; however, they are upstairs in my audio only, tube driven system coupled with a pair of M2s.

At 110 lbs, I had better figure out where the 800 is going to permanently reside, ha!

Well, this is going to be quite fun.. because there were only two of them on the referb site, and it let me buy them both a couple of hours ago.

So either there is a bug in the purchase system, or one of us is going to get a phone call in the next little bit to say that the purchase we made didn't go through.

Hmmmmm....

I just talked to Brent & indeed there was some kind of a bug in the purchasing system that he can't solve till after the long weekend. Looks like you beat me by a couple of minutes, sniff.

I'm sure that Axiom will find some kind of workaround for me...

That really sucks. I will mull it over the weekend, and I need to figure out if I really do need to have 2 subs, or if I can get by with just 1. The room is 16x17' with 8' ceilings. Chances are that a single EP800 would be enough, but it's that single unit can get null spots inside a room, so you use 2 to make sure.

I feel kind of bad that i snipe'd you. I was deliberating over it and called up Brent to see if they could hold of shipping the units for a few weeks as it will be hard for me to receive shipment til the end of next month. They were both sitting inside my shopping cart, so I just hit checkout and it went through. Seems that you had one in your cart at the same time.

Lets see if Brent can work something out.

Matt.

It's certainly not your fault. While the net is wonderful tool, it is certainly not infallible.

Axiom's Customer Service has always been top notch in resolving these types of issues...
