i have to say that is extremely interesting..? it does look like the same driver in the 500/600, so i am curious if they have made a change in the type of drivers they use across the board. i mean, do the new 125 and 175 also have the 'rounded' look? hopefully alan or amie will pipe in and give us some info.

i would think they would want to change the image on the website? it could be taken as slightly misleading..

I just returned my EP175.. it had the black dust cover. So I am unsure.

I hope they can chime in soon as well.

Seems to be the 500 driver, look at how big the 'black foam thing' is (dunno the correct name for it). … Compare it to the original 350,. the 350’s is significantly smaller.
Looks like you got a nice deal there, this deserves a new ep350 v2.0 user review... looking forward to that …

That's what I have too. Maybe I won't upgrade to the 500, after all!

i just received my fo 350 and it has the 500/600 driver (no black center) it sounds great the 500/600 all use the same size driver so they probal=bly figured why buy 2 different drivers. besides its the box and the digital proccessing that make the difference on the 500/600 also the 350 still has the 2 round ports as opposed to the single rectangler port of the 500/600. i wish the towers looked the same that would be cool.just my observastions for what its worth.

Just a business observation here.....I would guess that the drivers are now the same- not necessarily the internals, but the drivers.

It is cost effective to have less parts utilized within a great product range.

I believe the 500/600 use digital amps...probably much better than the analog amps in the lesser series.

Had me Hook, Line and Sinker!
Wow! An Experimental EP400! Cool.
I was on my way downstairs to see what it said on the back!

Yup,
Just went downstairs to look, and I too have the solid driver w/ no black insert in my brand new 350.
Looks just like the driver in the 500, in the same chassis as the 350.
I wonder if this has something to do with why I am so confused about my reaction to this sub, which I think is just awesome, while so many other posters seem to think it is a bit under-powered compared to the 500 and other subs out there?
