I know this question has been hammered to death, and I don't want to add any more complexity to it, unless one of the Forum members feels that more parameters should be addressed.
Do I buy a EP350 at ~ $650, or a Velodyne DPS10B at $399 (Future Shop just put them on sale - regular price was $699).
Is it worth buying a sub with a DSP in it.

Thanks

Well, I don't think either of those have a DSP, so....

The EP350 doesn't, but the Velodyne DPS-10B does.

I don't want to sound like I'm an Axiom fanboy, but several things concern me about that sub:

--With 158 ratings, it's not rated very high,

--the frequency response is rated to 28Hz, but with no +/- tolerance listed, that's pretty much worthless, and

--the Velo has a 185 watt am VS. the 300 watt amp in the Axiom.

--Also, if it matters, the Axiom is available in other finishes than black....

Mark: Thank you. I see you have an eye for easily overlooked items.

I think you just made up my mind for me.

We forgot to add we need someone to get the new EP350 so we can get a review of it \:\)

Yep. We all think it's going to be really good, but AFAIK none of us have actually *heard* one yet.
