Ok, so who's going to do the EP500v2 vs. EP350v3 shoot-off?

The Velodyne sub was a DLS-5000R I purchased this sub knowing very little about it other than on another forum it was mentioned as not being that good, distorted, like the Axiom (Axiom distorted, what?)subs, so I wanted to see what the posters frame of reference was.

As Tex said it is great at low notes but is not very articulate while doing it. It was very evident it sounded different than the Axioms on the very first note(pink noise for calibrating) that it played. It does have good power and would make a number of people happy to have it in their HT setup(just not me). The remote is a good idea and the sub comes with some 4 built in preset EQs, ie, movie, games, jazz etc. I couldn't hear a difference at home so we never even went into it. I wouldn't recommend this sub for music at all it is just too bloated to feel natural. It was fun for the first minute or so but then became very annoying.

Well, as Tex said the EP350 is infact much better than I gave it credit for, after pushing the limits of it further than I did at Greg's, it showed me just what a great sub for the money it truly is. We had run the EP600 at max output from the Denon and then switched to the EP350 and the 600 sounded little distorted, IMO, while the 350 kept on a thumping, I said thumping not ...never mind, the 350 never lost its composure and easily filled Tex's room with wonderous LFE. I did notice that on the initial fire up the 600 appeared to have more power/shake during the depth charge scene as it was easy to feel the couch vibrations with the explosions but a minor adjustment louder on the 350 made up the difference later on. I could easily see using 2 EP350v3 for larger rooms with out any problems at all, the single one worked great in Tex's 4000cf room.

Next up for the EP350 and EP600 will be a test against a SVS PB12-NSD, about the same price as the EP350v3. I should be receiving it sometime next week or early the following week hopefully.

After the SVS, Jason will be bringing over the Elemental Designs monster. We won't rest until we rip the fabric of space-time in my basement with acoustically-induced worm holes \:D .

Very interesting, Mo. Apparently, as Alan reported from his comparative double-blind listening tests, the 350v3 is indeed a significant advance, and an excellent choice in a mid-priced sub.

Yes, this sounds like a fun and worthwhile bit of comparison. I always figured I'd end up with another EP600, but I may have to follow Randy's lead and go with 2 EP350v3 subwoofers, assuming I'm ever determined enough to tackle that much calibration and tinkering.

He doesn't come around for awhile, I stealthily bring him back in to the mix and look what I have to do to pay for it. What have I done?
