i am leaning towards this, with a slight nudge from the wife that is. compromise is the beast of marriage. \:\)

anyone have pictures of these installed in their HT? i would love to see some real pictures and hear some real feedback on them.

i have gotten some great tips from the board already in just a couple days. thanks.

The search tool is difficult, but I managed to find these pics.

yeah, they should make search tools more user friendly. \:\)

the 3rd picture down that was taken from the website is what i have in mind. is the sub in some type of enclosure or just in a cut out in the wall, meaning the back side is exposed on the other side of the wall.

later.

Not sure. I would never place a sub in an enclosed area, but that is just me. Placement of subs is one of the hardest tasks, and I really doubt that type of configuration would give a person the best performance down lowwwwwww. \:\)

Good question. I know that was a promotional shot, so it may just be protruding through the wall. Like Randy said, I don't think that's an ideal configuration.

The bottom photo, I believe, is Ian and Amie's bedroom setup. I find myself wondering to whom those stockinged gunboats belong. ;\)

I dunno. I'd have to hear that setup before passing judgment. Think about it. The ep500s (there are two of them) are front ported, and sealed on all other sides. They are protruding from the wall several inches to minimize wall influence. It just might work very well.

@ Ajax - rumour starter!!! FYI that is Tim, our graphics/photographer guy, kicking back and watching a good logo. . .

Regarding the subwoofer, the custom installer that worked on the log home project was under the constraints of a decorator, who insisted the subwoofer get placed in the wall. According to the aforementioned Tim, who attended the grand opening of the log home, the sound was very good. Of course, he had nothing to compare it to in the situation, but he said you still heard good bass.
