Thanks guys, again placement is going to be a factor. My room used to be 30ft x 30ft x 9ft ceilings. I added a AV closet, so now it is kind of an L-shaped room. The screen wall is set back about 6ft into a bump out, and is also 15ft wide. My screen is 10ft wide, so that only gives me 2.5ft on each side. My 60's take up part of that space, so I don't think a vertical 600 would look/sound good right next to one of my 60's. So my only option for a 600 would be horizontal below the screen next to the 150, or along the half wall or the full wall. There will also be a stage below the screen made out of 2 x 8's, it comes out about 3 ft or so.

Hey buddy, well you're going to get more votes for the EP600, but I'll stand by all that I have shared with you. I'd get the EP500 due to do things we've discussed.

Having had a good look at the large space I strongly recommend 2 subs. 2 500s placed under the screen between the mains would work well.

How about the best of both worlds...a horizontal EP600 under the screen and another sub (your current EP350 or an EP500) behind the couch?

Can you not get the EP600 and keep your EP350? Or does the sale of the EP350 help fund the new sub?

Financially I could just pay for a 500 or 600 outright, however, your correct, If I could sell the 350, it would help reduce the cost. I've talked to a few people that have mentioned sometimes having two subs can be a bit tricky to get a good blend. Most likely I'll just get one or the other. I was even thinking about getting another 350. Two 350's might give the 500 or 600 a run, however, they would not go as LOW.

How LOW can you go.....

Well guys, tonight was the night I made my decision. After talking to the wife and going over some of your feedback, I feel the best value for me is to go with the ..........

drum roll............see below....................








































EP500


I'll keep the 350 for now, but most likely sell it at some point in the future. Maybe some day I'll get another EP500 for the opposite side of the room, but I think one is going to blow me out of the water....

Randy

Judging from what I've read, it looks like you should enjoy the heck outta that thing. It is always exciting to buy new toys. Way to make the rest of jealous, Randy. . .
