Looks like I'm the only one using 'High Level Inputs' with my Axiom sub.

Not having these inputs in my audio only, tube-amp system unfortunately would mean that another manufacturer that still includes them would win my next purchase.

I believe that 'High Level Inputs' should remain available for those who use simple amps without all of the fancy on board processing of a HT Receiver...

Axiom EP800

Phase 0

Volume 40%

Subsonic off

Crossover 150 (set at 80 on the processor)

Sherwood P-965 & A-965

Mains M80's V2 / VP-180

RCA Input

Using trigger, but have intermittant issues as stated by other members. Hard power cycle corrects condition, but is required frequently.

A suggestion I would like to see. I would love to see a cross over that is not hard set at a specific cut in/out frequency. I would love to see a feature that sees the crossover fade gradually over lets say 10hz.

The next generation of Subs should offer EP800 performance at EP350 prices. Just sayin... grin

What Axiom subwoofer(s) do you own? EP500 v2

Where do you have the Level, Frequency, Phase, and Subsonic Filter (if applicable) controls set? 6:00, 80 Hz, 0*, Flat

How are you connecting your signal source to the subwoofer (RCA/XLR/High Level)? XLR

What receiver/processor/pre-amp/integrated amplifier are you using? Emotiva DMC-1/MPS-1

What are you using for your main speakers? Axiom M80 v2

Where do you have the crossover frequency and trim levels set in your processor/receiver for your main speakers and your Axiom subwoofer? 80 Hz, Large/Sub ON

Are you using the trigger on your subwoofer? Yes - w/ no issues.

What improvements would you like to see? I think the most common complaint I've read over the years about Axiom subs is price v. performance relative to other internet direct companies, so, in other words: reduced pricing.

What Axiom subwoofer(s) do you own?
Older EP500 (Build 10123?), upgraded to 1,000 watts. All settings below are for the original EP500.

Where do you have the Level, Frequency, Phase, and Subsonic Filter (if applicable) controls set?
Level: - Max
Freq: 150
Phase: 180
Sub Filter: On


How are you connecting your signal source to the subwoofer (RCA/XLR/High Level)?
RCA

What receiver/processor/pre-amp/integrated amplifier are you using?
Denon AVR 2310CI

What are you using for your main speakers?
JBL Studio S31211

Where do you have the crossover frequency and trim levels set in your processor/receiver for your main speakers and your Axiom subwoofer?
Mains: 80Hz
Sub: 80Hz


Are you using the trigger on your subwoofer?
Yes. It operated well until I inadvertently connected the trigger-out line (from the Denon) to the audio processor circuit. (That was an installation problem ... not Axiom). Resulted in upgrading the EP500. Would recommend Axiom consider some sort of breaker system for the audio processor that would sense over voltage and protect your very fine equipment.
