And can save in one year for a EP600 would you take a verticle EP600 for in the center of the screen or take two years and buy two EP 500's one each year for each side.
Are there any stats on two EP500's in a room.

John (not sure of his last name) on this board has done numerous experiments with Axiom subs.

2 EP500s are better than 1 EP600 for better distribution of LFE in the room.

EDIT:

Found the post from Jakeman:

1. 4 ep600s
2. 3 ep600s and 1 ep500
3. 2 ep600s and 2 ep500s
4. 1 ep600 and 3 ep500s
5. 4 ep500s
6. 3 ep 600s
7. 2 ep 600s and 1 ep 500
8. 1 ep600 and 2 ep500s
9. 3 ep500s
10. 2 ep600s
11. 1 ep600 and 1 ep500
12. 2 ep500s
13. 1 ep600
14. 1 ep 500

two subs on opposite walls will do a better job at taming peaks and nulls.

but then you wouldn't be thinking about evening out the LF response in your room with 2 EP500s...

Just think, then you can chart it!

One 500 and a 350 somewhere in the room I would think would do better than just one 500. Don't get me wrong, the 500 is awesome, but my room is huge, so it is probably comparable to a 350 in a small room.

Ok cool I will probably go with the 2 EP500's spending $4000 my wife would probably shoot me anyways not that $3000 is any better but, at least I'd live.

Actually I can get a left over EP350 for $450 tx incl and put that in the rear and the 2 EP500 up front

If you order from Axiom's factory outlet you will save 10%. Troy, my room is 8100 Cu Ft and one 500 does a good job.

yeh, I think my room would be 2400 cf so one would be enough , but I hate the fact of one. I guess I need to place it better in the room just I like if a bomb explodes on the right side of my screen I want to hear that it originates from the right. but then I need decoding and a amp that sends mono signals to the right sub channel only. And I know low frequencies are omni directional blah blah blah. But put it this way if you are walking down a street in say ... whatever town and you were blind folded and a bomb goes of on the right side of the road. you can tell it came from your right you don't hear the low end all around you it comes from the right and you can tell hence left and right channel subs. And I want a sub ( two EP600's be good ) that when the bomb in Behind Enemy Lines goes off to my right to actaully shake the shirt on me from the lower 12 hz of air movement I want to feel and hear the wind go by from my right to the left
