Loc: It's all about the location.
With Peter, we might have to take him literally when he says "troubleshooter"--I'm picturing him with a 12 gauge to solve Micah's subwoofer woes.

Just to be clear, you're talking about him shooting the subwoofer and not Micah, right?

He's far more likely to use a baseball bat on Micah.

WITH Micah. WITH Micah. That's what I mean, yeah...

Loc: Indiana you hoser!!!!
The audio Gods are most definately not happy with me. What else could explain $5600 dollars worth of subwoofer gear sitting in my living room not making a sound? I wonder, if I threw the XPA-3 into the local volcano (.... um, just where is the nearest active volcane to Indiana, anyone know?), if that would appease the Gods and the EP800's would spring back to life??? I think it would be worth a shot, I've tried everything else to date.

Ok seriously though. The Fathom was indeed a force to be reckoned with forsure. But to be honest, while listening to music through it I felt like it was missing a little something. Like the 800 was... hmmm, how do I discribe it... warmer? I'm not sure that's the correct discription. All I know is that it didn't sound quite as good. Not that I know where to fault it, as it didn't demonstrate any faults per sey. I guess maybe it's just a case of me getting to know the Axioms and falling in love with them, and the JL Audio's just not being 'them'. Like if I'd purchased the Fathom first and gotten to know it and then listened to the EP800 I might think it sounded muddy or... I don't know. I've owned JL car subs and absolutely LOVED them, so perhaps it's just that I'm not used to it compared to the Axiom. All I know is I still longed for the EP800 when we were testing both subs out, EXPECIALLY the JBL!!! Actually he left the little JBL here for now so that I have some bass. But I have it turned off while I'm listening to music because it adds nothing of value to music like the 800 did. I only had it fired up last night while watching 'Dirty Dancing', which I guess it did alright with. Still nothing close to what I was used to.

I'll bet if I auditioned a Fathom for a week or so I probably wouldn't want to give it up. But hey, now that I'm used to twin 12 inchers I guess I need to go with the F212... but then why throw a latteral pass when I can throw the bomb and get the Gotham F213??? Once I return these 800's and get my money back I'll only need another ten grand. Guess I better start a collection, how's this... for anyone making a donation of $1000 dollars or more, you can come by and hang out anytime you like. And for anyone donating $5000 or more, you will be entitled to a full week per year in my home theater for the rest of your life! Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me!!! ;\)

I know that 'warm' Axiom sub sound very well and that is what I miss most with my PB13 when listening to music. I may just purchase an Ep350 so I can have the best of both worlds.

Oh... (runs, turns off 'Ghost', fumbles through movies... can only find, 'Road House'... figures it's close enough...) OK!

LOL!!


I admit, when flipping channels, I CAN'T turn "Road House" off. There is just something about it.
