Listeners who are searching for loud, clean, and powerful playback levels of rock, rap, and classical bass, orchestral bass drum, pipe organ, and thrilling DVD movie playback should look closely at this system. The Axiom Epic 60 / 500 system scales up the performance level of the standard Epic 60 / 350 by combining the new Epicenter EP500 DSP 500-watt subwoofer with the new larger four-driver VP160 center channel. This system is ideal for demanding listeners who want spectacularly deep subwoofer bass to 15 Hz and below, combined with the ability to play powerful bass frequencies at very loud levels in substantial rooms. Ideal for rooms of 2,100 cu. ft. to 6,000 cu ft. and those with vaulted ceilings, “great rooms” and dedicated home theaters, the Epic 60 / 500 results in a large increment in powerful deep bass and provides crystal-clear dialog for larger rooms and listening distances greater than 15 feet.
The award-winning Epicenter EP500 subwoofer achieves ultra-low bass with none of the uneven performance of conventional subs. The Axiom custom-programmed Intelligent DSP “algorithm” controls every frequency from 16 Hz to 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 13 Hz or even deeper in typical rooms. And the sophisticated DSP chip inside prevents the EP500 from ever being overdriven into distortion.
The M60 main towers that anchor the system achieve wide dynamic range and excellent, clean, high-volume performance with an airy, spacious soundstage and neutral, high-accuracy music reproduction. At an attractive 37-inch height, the M60 features dual 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofers, a dedicated 5.25-inch midrange, and a one-inch titanium-dome tweeter.
The VP160 'monster' center's four drivers have exceptional power handling and wide dispersion for fine dialog intelligibility and a seamless front soundstage. Specifically designed to mimic and complement the drivers on the M60 tower speaker, this center will astound you with how well you can hear everything from intimate whispers to bone-chilling screams. It's better-than-movie-theater-quality sound in your own home.
Coupled with the EP500 sub, the system will deliver realistic, high-volume multi-channel surround sound with music or movie soundtracks at a performance level that high-end audiofiles and home theater enthusiasts will applaud. The QS8 quadpolar surrounds, with four drivers each, deliver an astonishing sense of envelopment in the ambient soundfield with movies or music.
Center and surrounds can be wall-mounted or stand-mounted.
