Well, I got my Dual EP500's today, haven't had much time to get them dialed in yet.

But so far, it looks like I made the right choice. The difference between these and my EP350 and PL-200 is night and day.

I was debating between the dual EP500's or dual SVS PC12-Plus's. I don't know what the SVS's would of sound like, but I think I'm pretty happy with these.

Music listening especially is awesome. Haven't had a chance to play any heavy bass movies yet.

Once I get these dialed in with my SMS-1 they should sound really great! Thanks to all for the advice... \:\)

Well when the audio track is right in a movie .. and as far as my one EP500 is dialed in, with certain movies and the couch starts going, and I am trying to maintain the integrity of my sphincter...i'd love to hear/feel 2 EP500s.

Not sure whether to laugh or cry at that. At my age, I can't afford to lose any integrity of my sphincter! \:D

Man, I will tell ya this...with these dual EP500's, and the SMS-1 I have finally, after days of tweaking, got my system sounding the best I have ever heard it.

The funny thing is I have always run my M80's set to small with a 80hz xo.

So today, I changed my xo to 50hz, M80 still at small, bumped up the volume on the EP500's and the difference (with music) shocked me!

The bass is so defined and smooth I couldn't believe my ears. I muted the subs on/off several times while listening. I'm not sure what the difference is, but with the M80's taking care of the freq. above 50hz and the EP500's handling below 50hz, it's made a huge difference.

I'm not sure if this will effect movies or not, but music sure has changed for the better.

I would like to hear what xo some of you have for music?? And do you change it for movies or do you leave it alone for both music/movies??

I have mine set @ 60HZ and small. I never really messed with the setting as it sounds so damn good now I don't see the need.

I am currently running my M80s at 40hz, small setting, with the PB13 Ultra doing the rest and I think it is amazingly accurate. I have run the system with a 60 hz crossover as well with similar results.

Thanks Rick.

Jay, That's the word I was looking for..."accurate" that sums it up.

I remember when I first got my M80's and had no sub at all. Of course I was running the M80's on large and I remember how impressed I was with just the M80's.

Before I got the EP500's I experimented with different crossovers, I just don't remember music sounding this "accurate". If movies sound good at this xo, no way I'll be going back to 80hz xo.
