>>All the talk about subs lately especially on other sites have me a bit concerned with my order of the ep500. You say HSU sounds better than anything you ever heard before.

I don't think Jinx has heard an EP500 yet

In reply to:

If you've been following that thread at AVS, stay tuned. It's REALLY gonna get interesting.




Jack, I cruised over there for a little bit a couple of days ago and read through most of that thread. Whew, some of those fellas are a tad testy, aren't they!

Are they *still* ranting and raving over there about the Axiom speakers?

Well the hatchet job on the EP600 has tamed down, but only because one fella took his SVS and his EP600 up to Axiom for them to measure, and now Ilkka's numbers are going to be scrutinized and compared. That's given the Axiom bashers pause. Next is a trip to the NRC so both can be independently measured there.

i have not heard the ep500...but...i will tell ya that there is no way a servo 15 from paradigm could compete with 2 HSU vtf3's...that is for sure. i HAVE heard those, and there is just no comparison. i still can't believe that they are only 12" subs!!! also, my buddy is gettin the turbos for these subs, so they will get better still!!! and as for ONE sub compared to TWO..i would ALWAYS go with 2 if you can afford it...and that is the general recommendation of almost all speaker manufacturers...2 subs is the way to go for sure

I can't imagine having two vtf3's. My house can barely handle one without drywall damage

I have not heard the ep500. It's what I wanted originally but with the vtf3 mkii being what it is for the dollar it was a no brainer. Would have been nice to have all matching speakers though.

But, I'll never give up my vtf3, the thing is nuts.

I have dual VTF-3 MKII subs in my 13x24 basement theater. The two VTF-3 subs hit hard as heck and can make you feel as thought the entire house is coming down around you. I've measured my two VTF-3 subs down to 16Hz at some serious decibals that is way more that I can take in a room this size. Sure you can always find a sub that plays louder, but it's not all about decibels its also about the quality of the sound and the VTF-3 is one of the best sounding subs I've ever heard. The VTF-3 is a serious performer in Hz, dB and sound quality. Very few subs are good at all these things. Also the VTF-3 is probably the first upgradable sub and by adding a turbo for only $200 you have a sub that will supposedly play as loud as "two" VTF-3 subs with the same top notch sound quality.

I'm not bashing Axiom subs or speakers and I even own some Axiom speakers. The VTF-3 is just a great sub and two has to be felt and heard to be appreciated.

You make it sound like the VTF3 is way more than what I need. I may have to consider the VTF2.
