Old age cures one from ever wanting to unnecessarily move heavy items - especially to other rooms. My EP-800s (110 Lbs each) are sitting right where we (my wife & I) originally placed them. They work just fine where they are, flanking the M22s

I should have been more clear. In my room, for music, an M80v2 pair without a sub is substantially better than an M22v2 pair with an EP600v2. Sub or no sub, the M22v2 sounded too thin and lacked presence compared to the M80v2. For movies, I could liv

Though I have an ep500, I haven't done the listening tests that would help me answer your questions from my own experience. From my reading on audio, I've concluded that (1) everyone needs a sub, (2) several moderate quality subs of varying types in

I have not heard Axiom subs. I owned paired polk psw10s. Then "upgraded" to a velodyne eq-max 12 and finally ended up with paired svs sb12-nsd subs. (currently called sb-2000.) Enter the room lock era. I cant see any upgraditis happeni
