Need some advice again. I know some of you have both subs (Sirquack). I purchased the M22s a few weeks ago for use in my living room. Love the speakers, but brought the EP500 up from the basement and love the difference with the sub. Since I am using these speakers mostly for stereo music and tv would the EP350 be enough? Just need a little more bass for the M22s. The 350 is about half the price of the 500 and would be a lot easier to spend the money on it for what I am using it for. Just wondering how much difference there would be between the two subs. Will still use the basement for movies where I have M80s, VP180, QS8s and the EP500.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

I have the EP350 upstairs in our living room. The room is probably 15 x 20ish with a vaulted ceiling that goes from 8ft on one side upto about 12ft on the other. It also has a large opening that leads into the kitchen, and another opening on the other wall that leads to the front entryway and bedroom hallway.

The 350 does a wonderful job matched up with my M22's and VP100. I have the Denon receiver on 0dB, and the volume gain on the back of the sub at about 1/2 way and it produces very nice powerful bass when called upon.

I have M22's and EP350 in a similar, but smaller, room and I'm completely satisfied with it. It fills in the lower end quite nicely. Room size approx. 12 x 17 with same vaulted ceiling as above and same openings into dining and hallway.

How are the cats responding to the evil spirits?

Thanks guys. My room is 14x20 with 8' ceilings. So looks like I will be purchasing the 350 in the near future.

Yea that is what I plan on doing. Sounds like I can't go wrong with the 350. If you remember from my other thread when I got the M22s I was having a problem with a pioneer receiver. I ordered an onkyo HT-RC180 from Accessories4less. It is more than I need for what I am using it for, but for 350.00 and free shipping it was a great deal. About the same power as the pioneer but no distortion. Something was definitely wrong with the pioneer.
The M22 sound really great and with a sub they are pretty impressive.

what type of warranty do they offer on refurbs? I am looking at a 1008 for a new install.

One year. They also have a 30 day money back. The receiver I got looks brand new. No marks anywhere. They do say there could be some cosmetic blemishes, but mine looks new. If you like Onkyo I think it is hard to beat there prices. I bought a 3007 at Best Buy over a year ago for 1800.00 and they have it for 849.00. I could have saved almost 1000.00. Have seen others on this forum recommend them.
Let us know if you get one. If you buy new they have 2 year warranty. But I think for the savings they are well worth it.
