Seems like Dennis (Tharkun) had issues with his two 600s way back when and I'm thinking it was finally discovered the cause was the XLR connections ... anybody remember that?

Those of you with the 800... I'd like to know what your settings are so i can try a few things out.

The muffled sound/lack of bass on the 800 was BEFORE we moved the sub. so I know the volume knob thing had nothing to do with it. I spoke to JC today and we're going to take care of it, and it's not going to cost too much (thank God!!)... I really like, respect - am completely impressed with - the people at axiom!! They could have taken advantage of a newbie like me, and didn't even hint at trying to make me pay extravagant fees for the mishap!

By the way, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE M80S!!! HOLY SH*T!!! I have the streem 808s... and they're not bad at all (for the price i paid), but WOW... what a difference! Now I know what ppl mean by "a life changing experience"... it's true! We pumped up the volume on the M80s LOUD and NO distortion whatsoever... and we didn't even come CLOSE to max volume! I'm an axiomite for life now! without a doubt! can't wait to hook up the center and surrounds.

The M80s are even better when sitting on M60s as a stand.

oh and by the way, thanks onn... I'm stealing your idea for another set of M80s to use as surrounds, and I'll use the Q8s as rears in a 7.1!

I have been completely transformed! I used to travel 3 or 4 times a year, but it looks like I'll have to cut that down to 2 or 3 now... I've been bitten by the audio/home theater bug!

is it wise to put the 800 in front of the screen (i got the horizontal)... and the center right behind it? on its stand?

Majik, did JC have any ideas on why your 800 is not performing? I think you would be fine as long as the center is not touching the sub as it might vibrate a little.

My horizontal 600 was below my center for a long time, the center was mounted on the wall with some shelf brackets.

Randy do you think the 600 will vibrate the center? I personally wouldn't put the center on the sub myself but I was just curious if the enclosure on the 600 would vibrate that much? I like that 600 sitting horizontal, looks good with your setup.

Hey Rick, I don't think I would put the center on the sub. I think majik is talking about putting it behind the sub on a seperate stand.

This picture is an old one, my 600 is now in the back rear corner of the room, and my 350's are up front spread out next to my 80's...

Majik the final setting I have for my EP-800 is 11 O'clock on the back volume and +1.0 dB on the pre-pro level output. So I can still turn the sub up another quarter turn on the sub and another +11.0 dB's on the pre-pro. I don't like to run my sub hot like I think you like to do.
The M80's I'll agree are some great sounding speakers. \:\)
