Audioengine A5+ with EP125, good match? - 01/10/13 01:01 PM

Greetings,

I have the a5+...love them! but searching for a more low-end, at lowered volume. Since with a new baby I cannot crank it as often as I would like. smile So I thought EP125 would fill that space nicely. Is that a good choice?

Also looked at the Audioengine S8 but I would pick Axiom since both are about the same price.

If so, can I take Line-out from the A5+ connect to EP125's Line-in?


Thank you,
Kong

What's the room size? The number of feet long, wide, and high?

I've no experience with EP125, but my guess is it's only for the smallest of rooms. I had an EP175 in my living room of 18 X 12 X 10. It would have been fine at lower volumes, but not at the volume I crank it to, so I upgraded to the EP350, and now thinking about adding a second sub.

You can always try it and if you don't like it, send it back for a refund of all but return shipping, unless it's for an upgraded product.

Looking on the Products page for this Subwoofer, and looking at the amp picture, it has high-level inputs, so yes, you can attach amplified speaker wires to this subwoofer.

12'x10'x9' is the room dimensions. It's a little office/computer room I have at home. I use them for music/gaming 60/40, respectively.

It would be a first purchase for me with Axiom, if I've decided to pull the trigger.

Can I control the volume of the sub at the speaker's control? If not, what's your suggestion?

I think you would use the line-out of the A5 to connect to the sub. Assuming that line-out has variable volume (which it may or may not), the volume control would be from the speaker control. You'd probably be ok with an EP125 in that room, but there are very few people around here who have an EP125 or have even heard one, sorry to say.

Thank you very much guys. After a few days of exhausting research, I think I have found a subwoofer from SVS which fits my situation a little better.

Cheers!
