Trying to decide on a sub, I am really liking the idea of running an EP600 but wonder if I really should just go with the EP500?

Setup

-Unfinished basement that will be finished some day, will be finished with 2 purposes in mind, music and theater 1300ish sqft

-Denon AVR4308ci

-M80's

-VP150

-Music run from PC, Auzentech X-FI 7.1

-Blu-ray run from PS3

-I don't know if I would consider myself an audiophile but I do take my listening experience very seriously, I listen to rock, metal, classic rock, blues and hip hop

-I also need a complete experience when watching movies

-I will round the setup out with 4 QS8's

I want a serious punch from the sub, complete clarity, subtleness when needed. I am fighting instant gratification right now, really wanting to order the EP500 because I have the cash for it but on the other hand I do not mind spending the extra money for the EP600 and can come up with the difference with a little finagling.

Square footage is length X width.

Cubic feetage is length X width X height.

Are you ordering from the factory outlet to get 10% off, plus the always 5% if you order 5 or more items?

Describe "Punch" ? Most people think their HT subs should sound like subs in compact car/truck situations, THUMP THUMP (with glaring eyes from onlookers), it is a little different.

Expanding on Randy's thoughts a bit, that "thump" is frequently frequencies in the ~60-80Hz range.

Man, Frequent Frequencies is another great band name!

And fans would be known as ... freaks

Hey man, I'm a Frequent Frequency freak. They could have their own fan club and meetings could be freakouts.

Ending up going with the EP500, I decided I am going to close my theater room in so the EP600 would be too much for the space...got it positioned and tweaked out....sounds real real good.....have listened to a little music on it as well threw on We Were Soldiers blu-ray and listened to combat scenes...WOW!
