I really have to stop reading and looking at the Axiom products...anyway.

I have been thinking on doing some upgrades to my HT system mainly the front mains and adding a second subwoofer. I am currently running a 7.1 system and would like to get a better sound stage and more even bass. Hence the new mains and sub.

My current sub is an Infinity IL100, 10" CMMD driver with a 250w amp. I have read it will go as low as 26Hz but have not seen a graph and it will do 30Hz-100Hz flat +/-1.5dB

My room is just over 2200 cubic feet and I was wondering what the better sub would be to integreat into my set up would be, the EP350 or EP500. I think I know the answer but would like some feedback.

Thanks
Phil

Get 2 EP350's.

One EP500 will overpower your Infinity so much that you'll stop using it and then you'll be back to needing a second sub to even out your bass, so we're back to two EP350's.

There may be some discussion going on right now about this.

Try this 2 to 1

If you want to use two subs, you are better off buying two of the exact same subs. EP350's are a great choice, or something from SVS/HSU/Elemental Designs, etc. Axiom and SVS are easiest to get in Canada, though.

Adrian, have you seen or heard Paradigms Sub 25? I just read a review about it and the reviewer claimed it is the king of the hill. Although it would take me a little while, I've seriously thought about saving up for it.

I've only seen it online, but it sounds like a real beast. It's in the Signature line so it's going to be $$, about $4G list by the looks of it.

If you've done the sub crawl and the spot is right in front of your seat.......feet up, crank up and your done.

Now other than a massage? That would be the 6K sub and you would certainly be getting, well, you know.

Well, I don't know if it would massage your feet, but most certainly it could part your hair for you.
