Featuring XLF (Extended Low Frequency) Intelligent DSP Technology

The biggest advance in subwoofer technology in the last 15 years is here! The Epicenter EP500 is the first subwoofer of its size to truly go down to a couch-shaking 19 Hz in an anechoic environment. If you've been longing for the kind of seat-rumbling experience you get in a good movie theater, you'll get it with the EP500. How is this possible? The XLF (a DSP chip) enables the EP500 to deliver spectacular deep bass – as low as 18 Hz in a room! Bring on War of the Worlds!

"In every configuration that I tried this sub in, it performed at world-class levels. It is both able to convey subtle musical notes, and earth-shaking low-frequency movie effects effortlessly. It's not a hard stretch to say that this sub's performance matches or exceeds the best 12" subs that are available at ANY price."– Geoff Cintron, AudioReview.com

Ultra-Low Bass

Though claims of 19 Hz are made every day by manufacturers, specifications are normally calculated in unrealistic environments (like a closet!). Planning on using your sub in a real room? The EP500 achieves ultra-low bass with none of the uneven performance of conventional subs – Intelligent DSP doesn't allow peaks and dips. It controls every frequency from 16 - 100 Hz, maintaining a smooth, flat response within 1.5 dB across the range. That means you'll hear undistorted, profoundly deep rumbles all the way to 18 Hz.

What's more, this subwoofer is unbreakable. The EP500's massive 12-inch aluminum driver with a 3-inch diameter dual voice coil, and its companion 500-watt power amplifier are tightly controlled by the DSP. Its special algorithm commands the subwoofer to deliver peak performance without ever being overdriven. And its maximum undistorted output of 120 dB is louder than a full orchestra in a concert hall. At last, professional cinema realism is available in your home theater!

"When I cranked the volume up to obscene levels... I couldn’t hear any distortion from the 12" cone no matter how much I increased the volume – just solid, deep, room-shaking bass. The Axiom EP500 is a bargain among high-end subwoofers." – Vince Hanada, HomeTheaterSound

You don't have to take our word for it – audition this sub in your own home. The EP500 comes with a 30-day in-home trial, an industry-leading five-year warranty and free shipping.

"The bass was well-extended with oodles of punch and slam . . .With the EP500 engaged, the hairs stood up on my arms as I felt the adrenaline rush from the power of the mighty sub."

"The bass was well-extended with oodles of punch and slam... You could hear clear delineation of the bass notes, never sounding boomy or one-notey as do some high-excursion subs. With the EP500 engaged, the hairs stood up on my arms as I felt the adrenaline rush from the power of the mighty sub."

My main impression with the single-ended setup was that, unlike just about any other sub tried, this subwoofer was suitable for music. It was indeed hi-fi.
- Jeff Rabin, EnjoyTheMusic.com
Wow, is all I can say!! A treat for music and movies. You may want to warn your neighbors before you get complaints. It shakes my entire house and deck, which is at the opposite end of the house and the sub is in the basement :-).
- Cameron D., ON
Always extremely musical with great impact and accurate low bass tonality delineation, the EP500 is a superb sounding sub at all listening levels in both Stereo and HT movie multi-channel applications!
- Theophile T., LA
We've had the EP 500 for over 5 years now. From day one, it has provided the foundation for numerous movies and music tracks and has done so flawlessley!. It's so powerful that sometimes we think the entire house is coming down! Way to go Axiom! Power and precission in one box!

This subwoofer is well worth the money. You won't regret it!
- Joshua L., AZ
For my dedicated home theatre room, I upgraded from the EP400 to the EP500, which is a fair bit larger and heavier, but has a lot more punch. Of particular note, the upgrade process was easy and seamless, I was provided with a prepaid label to return the EP400 and was permitted to keep it until the EP500 arrived. This bad boy can be adjusted to meet the requirements of any system and user, whether it’s lower volumes while still producing confident bass, or seamless integration for a realistic home theatre feel, to extra or even insane bass (the floor shakes, pictures rattle, it’s great!). I chose to set the sub so it property integrates with the rest of my system (VP150, M22 on-wall, M2 on-wall; 7.1 surround), it accurately and confidently reproduces lower frequencies while not being overbearing (80hz crossover), with no signs/sounds of stress or ‘port chuffing’. Much more clean, tight, and accurate bass than other subs I’ve heard. Great customer service, great product!
