When it is 90+ degrees, I like a little breeze.

OK folks, here's the scoop on the ep350 specs. They are the same as the older v2 because... they are the same as the older v2.

So why does the v3 sound so much better? Dynamic response. New cabinet + re-designed amp = more headroom and better response in the same frequency range as before, or so Tom says. Man that guy likes his job!

That is interesting since I received conflicting feedback from others at Axiom via phone and PM. I'll have to call them back.

I find it interesting to believe that the freq response would stay the same with a larger improved amp using dynamic response, larger cabinet like the 500 (this is important), same driver/port as 500, etc. Think about the 500 versus 600, what is different.

Fred, more specifically, the sizes of the wedges in anechoic chambers determine the lowest frequency which is still anechoic. Those in the Axiom and NRC chambers are said to be efficient down to about 85Hz.

Hey, thought I replied to this yesterday.

Thats the spec strait from Tom Cumberland. Debbie didn't believe him. He said the reason it sounds so much better than the old v2 is that it has much better response time and more amp headroom for dynamics.

Thanks John. That chamber is freaky.

Well then...the specs have changed if it has better response time and more amp headroom for dynamics! Are you sure Tom wasn't having some of the good stuff from the back cabinet \:D ?

Sounds like fun, I have it for 45 days(or longer if I like it) so no big rush guys. The 21st is Good Friday we should all have the day off? Maybe Robb could even attend for a comparison to the EP500 as well. Hey this is starting to sound like another Calgary GTG. Everyone's invited!
