I can't wait to see what the experts do.

Here's the thing, a lot of people buy audio equipment with a certain sound in mind, and hope the equipment they buy gives off that sound. If it doesn't, they're disappointed. What they don't do is get to know the sound of the equipment they buy and give themselves time to enjoy it. Most speakers sound a bit different. If you get used to a certain pair (those Pioneer's you spoke of) and like them, that's great. But don't buy a set of Axiom's expecting them to sound like them, because they won't.

However get to know the Axioms, you may develop a fondness for them the same way you did those Pioneer's. Then again, you may not. There isn't a speaker out there that EVERYONE loves. It could be that Axiom's are not your brand. If not then after 30 days call up Axiom and say, "thanks but no thanks", that's what their guarantee is all about.

Just be sure to give them a chance to win you over. And by the way I agree, the EP500 should absolutely rock a bedroom down to it's foundations. So if it isn't, then I'm thinking something may be a-rye the same as you are thinking.

Oh and just for the record, I also like my bass. I'm not a 'flat bass response' kind of guy either. I have my EP800 set at 6 o'clock (about 50%) and it pounds. An expert may tell me it's set too high, but God damn it that's the way I like it! ;\)

That’s the great thing about home theater and audio…you can have it your way, experts be dammed.

Exactly that EP500 should be booming big time and it is not I even turn it all the way up it seems to just want to go below 40HZ at least to my ears. But thats when I play music movies seems fine but then again I am new to home theater. And I have used the auto config just to see and it set all my crossovers at 200hz and the channel levels all at like -12. When I told the "experts" that they said usally on thier high end amps with audessy? its right on. Which suprised me because my instructions say those things rarely work. I hope those guys know what they are doing because they charge $75/hour

I am going to wait til I have the pros come in if they say there is a problem then yes I will definitly call them. But the sub works fine watching movies. Its just music. Question is the M22 considererd a large or small speaker I have my oppo settings on LG.

M22 should definitely be set to small.
