That distortion is also noted as sounding good and the compression is only at max volume which those tests were done for.

I can tell you the Axiom subs sound much better with music than any of the subs they tested that I have heard. That distortion adds some richness to the sound that the others lack. My PB13 sounds very dry in comparison. The EP600 sounds more natural to me.

So maybe the EP800 will have the distortion too? I really don't think that a distortion can be good...

Does anyone have the the EP800 graphic measurements?

It is not so much distortion as it is harmonics and resonance and it is a very good thing for music.

Even relatively high levels of distortion are inaudible at low frequencies.

We have a winner! I remember the two direct comparisons and everyone described the differences as subtle. The biggest thing missing from the EP600 was bottom end rumble and that will be there in spaces with the EP800.

The only graphs that I know of are in the Audioholics first look here, but the amplifier has since been redesigned. I would be interested in current graphs, too.

Nickba, have you contacted Axiom directly for this yet? If not I'd guess a quick email or phone call would do the trick.
