Im still in the 30 day trial for my EP350 and its starting to cut in and out. Already called the fellows at Axiom and they said they think its the adapter.

Well, im thinking about sending the 350 back just in case its something else, and just upgrading to the 500.

Is the EP500 that much better than the 350? Anyone heard both and able to compare?

Yes it's that much better. I had the 350 for 6 months and traded up to the 500. It's night and day, believe me...

The extra power the 500 brings to the game is very noticeable.

Having never heard the 500, I'm still pleasantly pleased with the 350.

Axiom did some blind listening tests, and the 350 actually did very good, almost matching the 500 in many respects, since they updated the amp about a year ago. With that said, the 500 has DSP and a bigger amp, so it will play louder and lower. Depending on how you use the sub, you may not see a huge difference.

I have 2 350's and an EP600 for intense bass.

Mine definitely has the newer amp, since it has 2 rows of vents.

I just noticed the buttons above the place where you type your reply.
