Hey Guys,

Putting together a entire HT system from scratch, for my cousin, as I've mentionned it here a few times already :-)

As for the sub, have the EP500 on the list along with the M80s, VP150 and QS8s.. but does anyone have an opinion on the MFW15 as it compares to the EP500 ? I know that the EP500 has more power, ie: 500W vs 350W, and a 12" drivers vs a 15" driver.. and that the EP500 costs $500 more than the MFW15..

Much appreciated...

Riker

I wish I could tell you, but I won't be able to test out my new MFW-15 until I get my speakers and receiver in. That, along with the setup could be a good 2-3 weeks. \:\( I'll definately be putting up a review once I've got everything all set, albeit not a timely one for your current need.

Thanks J.P.

I am probably 4 to 6 weeks away from getting all the parts in, so your review will be still be timely and I look forward to reading it..

Unless of course he has.

I can't help but think that the ep500 is a better engineered product. but for 600 or 700 hundred dollars a 15" MFW looks fun!

Actually, I did when I was auditiioning the M80 setup. Jeff had an EP500, and I made sure to bring U-571 so we could check out the depth charge scene. So, I will be bringing some basis for comparision. But I will go ahead and state that the EP500 is a very nice sub, and the depth charge scene is a very nice scene. \:D \:D \:D

If I were looking seriously at the EP500 I would also look at the PB13 ultra. The MFW15 would be a competitor to the 350.

$1600

Plus shipping. Although I think it probably is a better product, Weighs twice as much \:\) but the warranty is only 3 years and It doesnt have the DSP which makes the sub "indestructable" like the 5 and 600's
