Hi All,

Newbie and am excited to be here. I am currently finishing my basement HT/Entertainment area within the next couple of months.

I'm thinking of getting the 6.1 Epic 80 package. Given that the room dimensions are 25' x 12' x 7.5' would this be overkill ??

Any recommended receiver/amp combo ?? If read on various forums that the Outlaw one would work and be best bang for buck. I currently have an AMC 1050 which I was hoping to use for bass shakers.

Cheers !

Welcome

I can tell you if you got 80's along with an ep500 or ep600, you won't need any bass shakers, that combination will knock your house right off its foundation.

thanks Sirquack .. yeah but I thought it would add to the "wow" factor. So I take it the Epic 80 with ep500 won't be overkill for my room dimensions ??

ps. enjoy reading your posts here and on Avsforum.

cheers,

I'm going to be putting the 80/500 system in a smaller room than you are. I've come to realize that while yes they are capable of being overkill for the room, they are also capable of being perfect for the room. Not only that but you'll get to avoid upgraditis if you just get the top set anyway =P

Slitman, again Welcome.
The EP500 or EP600 would be great for your room and Sirquack is correct about them rocking the foundations, I just added a Buttkicker LFE kit onto my main seating couch, it really is fun and does give that extra wow factor along with my 500, enjoy

Welcome Slitman!

I just put an Epic 80/500 5:1 system in a basement HT that is 14 x 16 x 7.75, with an Outlaw 990/7125, so I guess great minds think alike!

I'll let you know how its working out, but first you have to tell me the origin of your nickname. I have a couple of theories...

The whole house will enjoy the sounds!

Please let me know how it works out !! As for the nickname .. it was given to me back in University/College by a good "lady" friend of mine after she heard stories from other girl friends of how masterfully I paid attention to a certain nether region which most guys didn't ... like I did supposedly.

.. but I digress.

So what were we talking about again ... oh yes !

Please let me know how they sound. I'm hoping to audition them in the not to distant future.

Wow, there I was, thinking I'm a big perv for my imagination kicking around possible origins for your screen name ... like "Maybe he's a gynecologist", or somesuch ... then I read your actual origin and realize that you win the prize for most appropriate use of the blush graemlin. Here he is for an encore:

So were all of your girlfriends' past boyfriends gay, or something? Because most guys that I know spend a lot of time focusing on ladies' nether regions.

Actually, consider that a rhetorical question. I'm creeping myself out and it's only 8AM. Gotta go stamp out mental illness. Yeah, yeah, I'll start with myself ...

Lol, I was thinking the same thing, that he may be a gyno, my wife being in the medical profession has come across a couple of funny gynos names at different meetings, DR. Feltersnatch, Dr. Seymore Koochie, real names, not sure of the spelling

! .. I dunno guys but thats the honest truth and the rest is history as the name kinda stuck after that.

I just read on a thread that purchasing Outlaw from Canada might be problematic/costly with regards to lack of warranty, duties taxes etc. Anyone from north of the border purchase Outlaw ? I'd like to get an idea of what the duties & taxes would be.

Sorry for the hijack, but one more:

In Austin, TX there is a urologist who is well known around town as *the* man to go to for a vasectomy. His name? Richard Chopp, but all of his clients call him....

I swear this is true, and anyone can look him up. I know I sure did when I first moved here 10 years ago because I didn't believe anybody!

Regards,
Rich

In Athens, GA, there is a Robert (Happy) Dicks, M.D. Back in the day, he played football for UGA. On a quick search, here's a link that mentions him (towards the end of the story) ...

Medic: man, did you bring back some old memories. I'm an Auburn graduate and have had football season tickets for about 20 years. I remember Happy Dicks playing against Auburn. Every game, when I heard that name, I thought "who in the Hell would name a kid, Happy Dicks?"

What a small world it is!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL!!!!!

I just contacted a friend of mine from Toronto who purchased an Outlaw 1070 from the US last month. According to him, the duties and taxes were approx. $200 and the warranty is valid even though he is in Canada.
