Well folks, a decision has been made. After receiving some very lovely samples from Axiom, I have decided to go with Ebony w/black grills. The other colors were very nice, but just did not compliment the current trim in the room. The Buffalo Oak was to light, and not much darker than my current mansfield beech speakers.

Anyway, the Ebony was very cool, at least on the sample. It will look great with the lights turned on, and will totally disapear against the black front wall during movie watching.

I've got about 3-4+ weeks to wait for them to be built by the custom shop. I'm going crazy. In regards to the sub, I decided on upgrading to the EP600.

I think you'll be happy with the 600, and it saves you a little bit- If you remember that was my original vote. I think you should name your new sub Pedro, since I voted for him. Can't wait to hear what you think.

Congrats!

>>I decided on upgrading to the EP600.

Congrats on ordering your new speakers..

Just curious, what made you go with the EP600 over 2 EP500s? Or were 2 EP500s not an option?

Yep, two ep500's versus one ep600 was one of the things I've been trying to consider for weeks. After talking to many many people (sub gurus) I decided on the single ep600 for now. If I had a smaller room, and more problems with achieving a flatter freq, 2 500's would have helped. I want deeeeeeeper bass.

Nick, I've got a few guys at work interested in my current setup.

Well, another bonus is that, when you're ready, you can have 2 EP600s instead of 2 EP500s, only one more to go!
