Thanks Dave,

It was a difficult decision that could have went either way. I think overall the 500 was the best value for what you get for the money. Financially, I could have afforded either. The size of the 600 was a factor somewhat, this thing is a monster.

Looking at the specs, they are very similar, at least in the way I would be using it, they will both perform when called upon. Yeah the 600 goes a bit deeper and has 100 more watts, but the 500 is very close.

Long term I'll possibly get a second 500 if I find I need one, just so everything is matched, and for now I still have my 350.

I just ordered the 500 this morning from the FO..
