I hear a sharpie works really well on those drivers if you prefer the black-eyed pea look.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

I suppose it would be nice to have a use for my Sharpie Magnums. Unfortunately, uncapping one makes the house stink for a century. I'll have to do it over at a friend's house.

I know you were all on the edge of your seat, so I just wanted to say that I got my shipment confirmation email today. Here's hoping they get to me by next weekend.

Woo Hoo!

I WAS on the edge of my seat. I was trying to figure out where I could put four EP800s, and realized I would have to sit on the edge of one seat so one of them could have the couch!

smile I really need to get a friend around here who is interested in home theater to come over and help me play around with positioning the subs. As in, they need to do all of the moving of the subs while I sit and listen.

I should also finally get the necessary hardware and learn to use REW. Of course, seeing how bad the acoustics in my room are might make it so I can't make fun of your square room anymore.

Oh, I should mention that I got my EP800s today, a day earlier than I expected. Well, at least I'm pretty sure they're EP800s. I'm just unboxing them now. We'll see!

The good news is they're both v3 EP800s. I like the magnetic grills a lot. As in, I like that when they're off, there are no post holes. Not that it matters, since I'm trying them at the side mid-walls facing each other, so the holes aren't going to be apparent. I'm not going to do any tweaking tonight. I simply calibrated and called it good enough. They're all working. The bad news is that one corner edge of one of the new EP800s was slightly messed up, to where the vinyl may want to start peeling off if it encounters any rough handling down the line. As it is, it just looks slightly imperfect at that corner. It's not going to be worth the hassle of returning it.

I doubt I'll notice a performance difference, especially in the current room, but at least I have the flexibility to try a number of configurations when my system is in the basement. Anyway, that's what's going on with me.

You doubt you'll notice any performance differences??? Man that's a lot of cabbage to spend just to have an 'even' room response! But, hey that's your cabbage, if you're happy with the way you spent it, then I'm happy for you. Lets see some pics!

Oh, did you order these through the FO? If so then the slight imperfection would be understandable. However if you ordered them regularly, then by all means don't be shy. $2200 is a lot of money, I would accept nothing less than a perfect subwoofer for that kind of loot!

So when is this big move into the basement?

These are new, not Factory Outlet. I may take a picture of the corner and send it to Axiom, but I really don't want to have to deal with packing it up, sending it back, and waiting for another one again. I've done that too many times already with the other ones. Still, if the slight damage can get me a discount on my next order....

Yeah, it's a lot of money to spend on almost no performance difference. I simply meant it would be hard to realize a difference in the current room, since I'm still only using two locations, and the room isn't so big that I would need the headroom. So yeah, it really was just in anticipation of the basement move.

I'm not sure when I'll be able to move the system to the basement. There's still quite a bit of work to be done down there, some of it major. I'm getting pretty impatient, so I'll be throwing a lot more money at it to make it happen quicker. I've only been talking about it forever.

CV look at it this way. If you time it just right, you could hide inside it and have a reallllly cheap flight to Dwight for the gathering!
