Hi all,
Am finally getting around to the basement remodel for my new Pio elite plasma. Have been looking high/low for the best on/in wall speaker set-up I could find. Stumbled onto Axiom and am quite excited by what I have read and seen. My room is roughly 13'x20' with just under 8' ceilings. Am seriously considering the Epic GR Mstr 350. Price is a concern but not a limiting factor. Any input and/or options would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

That will be a great system for your room. If it's not too late, put some 12 Ga. speaker wire in the walls for your surround/rear speakers.

xzlr8, welcome to the forums. I have Epic grand master 500 system in a 14'x26' great room and am extremly pleased with its performance. I haven't listened to an EP350, so I can't tell you anything about it. The EP 500 is an awesome sub, it can shake the whole room and might be worth your consideration if you want a lot of LFE.

Thanks DG. That was my next Q if the EP 500 would be overkill in a rm this sz. If not, that shall be the direction I go.

My room is 2150 cubic feet.

It is open to a fairly large kichten and a hallway though.

I have the ep 500 and it is definitely not overkill.

In fact, I am thinking about getting a second one to smooth things out \:\)

It has been said before, no sub should be overpowering in any size room when calibrated properly. Having the EP500 just means you can move into a larger room and not need to upgrade.

Where are you? Probably a EP500 near you.

I'm sure one of the new 350v3's would be fine as well, but if budget allows the 500 would also rock the house. \:\) The factory outlet would save you 10% as well..

Am going to go with the EP 500 but now the W22's are starting to scare me... I need a in/on wall and want very good sound and am not sure these will deliver..
