Well after months of construction I finally unboxed my EP350 and noticed that I the back control plate is identical to that of the EP500!

I didn't know anything was out of the ordinary because I had gone through the user guide packaged with my 350 and the diagram of the back controls were all listed.

It was only when I went to look up the user guide for the 350 on Axiom's site did I notice that it doesn't have the USB port and Trim knob listed!

In looking at the user guide for the EP500, I noticed that the diagram of controls is identical to what is installed on my EP350!

Now I've discovered this thread, but I'm at work so I cannot pull the grill to check the driver or view the included user guide to make sure it says EP350, but it looks as though I was able to obtain an update/hybrid EP350 from the Factory Outlet Store!

...I shall call it "Franken-Woofer"!

Confirmed!

Frankenwoofer has a smooth aluminum driver (no black dust bubble in the center) and the same back plate (USB, Load etc.) as the EP500!

When Axiom had their anniversary/picnic we saw some test models of the ep350.
Upon asking they were testing to see if it was worth while financially to have the same components in all subs and if there was a benefit in sound/performance.

I'll be sure to post some when I get back home from work.

One thing I've noticed between my new EP350 and my old 15" Cerwin Vega?

The EP350 blows it away!!!

I had both subs hooked up with the volume (on each box) at maximum (levels controlled through my receiver).

I ended up having to turn the volume on the EP350 down to about 50%, while leaving my CV at 100% to achieve the same SPL from each!

...now I'm thinking once I get some bills paid off, that I should sell of my CV and start saving for a second EP350 (or better yet, a 500!)!

Axiom has me sold! This is darn good stuff!

This thread cannot die with such an unsatisfactory ending. Any conclusions on the "temporary changes"? Are they really temporary?

Agreed. Before we all get excited it's probably just the PLATE they are sharing between 350 and 500, not the electronics BEHIND the plate, but it's still a step in the right direction.

EP400 here we come

<br>I never even thought of the roofing paint in terms of waterproofing the sub!

<br>Excellent idea!




Don't most subs come waterproofed. Kinda defeats the purpose if they aren't.
