Those room dimensions totally discredit my theory.

I think he feels the lower smoother, thump of the 400 is better suited to his tastes while we like the harder impact of the 350.

Wait till you get a load of the SVS. I am watching Star Wars Episode 1 with my son and this thing shakes the house like I have never felt, hits hard and rumbles nice and low, almost like the Velodyne and EP350 were mated.;\)

So then I wonder what the Ultra feels and sounds like.

Am I the 'he' you are referring to? If so, I wouldn't say I prefer the 400 at all. I found it too overpowering for music.

Now, I know some people don't like to use a sub for music, but with the EP350 it really opened up the bottom end for me.

Thinking on it, the 350 did what a great speaker should, became transparent. The 400 imposed itself on the music. I felt preasure on my ears in a way I never have before with music.

How that translates to movies and lfe I don't know. I guess I should have listened to 400 on movies as well.

It will be interesting to see how the 350 stacks up against that SVS you have.

Thanks for clarifying, fred. You were the 'he' I was speaking of. I can only guess that they perhaps had the 400 a little hot, or perhaps it is just that it has a punchier sound to it that was causing the pressure you were feeling? When I had the 400 in house I found it to be just as you described the 350, transparent, and it was not overpowering in the least. I guess this is why I am having a hard time with what you are saying about it, none the less, I agree the 350 is a superior sub all around.

I am really enjoying the SVS, but as I have said, I haven't have anything of this quality in my house so I really want to do the side by side comparison for a much truer picture of what this sub is doing.

I know Jakeman says the 400 is great for music because of the sealed design.

The 400 must have been set too hot.

Hot as in too much volume? That sucker was at the lowest setting and it hurt my ears. Maybe I'm just the sensitive type.

I really don't know why my experience with the 400 is so different.

Though you bring up a good point. With an spl meter two feet from my nose, it never occured to me to check the spls on the sub and the mains to see that they were the same.
