Nice review Chess. Your observations match with what I think of the EP350. Since I wanted clean bass for music, I think I made the right choice at the time.

I suspect that something like the PB13 ultra or EP800 would put either of the subs you have to shame.

I wonder what kind of bass you would get if you let the EP350 handle from 40Hz up and the PCi 15-46 handle the bottom end. I suspect it might sound quite good.

Sure.
The speaker models still exist so the comparisons still apply. It is just that the links were broken as i switched photo hosts over time so now and again when anyone refers to the post the pics are back in place.
Speaker designs rarely change quickly.

Everyone loves pictures especially those like really seeing the difference in size alone between the Axiom Ep350 and a SVS sub!

I was shocked the first time i saw it.
The cylinder subs really do look like water heaters.

Well, they still have speakers with the same names, at least... The 350s have changed quite a bit since then.

I looked at the 8/25 and wondered how I missed this thread. I got more sun than I thought this weekend.

Me too!


I think it's a shame that SVS changed their subs over from the beautuful wood finished box models to these huge felt covered cyclinders. As he mentioned, for a highend HT arrangement, you would simply have to go with Axiom or some other brand because how do you integrate that thing in seamlessly with upscale furniture and decore??? Even if they did find huge advantages with going with cyclinders, couldn't they have at least kept the other models around for those who want a more discrete look???

Very nice write up btw!
