Hi Everyone,

I have a sub along with the Epic in/on wall speakers and it is fried. I bought it in 2005 I believe. I tried to have it repaired as it was vibrating at low volumes and causing a scratchy sound every time we heard voices or low frequency sounds. They tried to change a switch and other parts on the master board but in the end I was told that it was totally fried.
My question is: Is it possible to just replace the master board as opposed to buying a new sub? If so, is it practical?

Model is EP175 v2 / S/N6120003 Cherry BL A B.

Thanks for any advice,
Reyucel

possible, your best bet would be to email or call Axiom...

I can't fathom why you would try to have it repaired without calling Axiom first.

Phone is better than email, IMO.

Welcome Reyucel,
I have an EP600 with a bad amp as well. After a quick e-mail to Axiom, they confirmed it could not be repaired. They kindly offered an updated (most current) replacement amp for a fraction of what the entire sub would cost.

Tom, if it was as simple as a switch replacent. That could be done for around 20-50$.

And, since it's an 05 it's long out of warantee; most companies don't offere anywhere near the longterm out of warantee support that Ian does... So, i can see why someone would attempt to have it fixed, not having dealt/heard about the post warrantee support..


Reyucle, on my 05 model EP-600 the amp went out. i "traded in" my old/"broken" amp, and got a new one. i think my total cost was around $160 i did this in either 2011, or 2012.. not exactly sure, but it wasn't too long ago... i would guess your cost will be substantially less.

hope this helps.


please pardon any dumb typos, as im on my phone... smile

Thanks again folks,

I know I should have called first but as dakkon mentioned it has been 8 years and I knew the warranty was over. I will be calling in on monday to see what can be done. As I said the master board is completely fried and I'm hopeful the the V3 of EP175 would be compatible. We'll see. Thanks again for your comments and advice.

I'd suggest it would be a great time to upgrade your sub.

If you can afford to go with the EP350 instead, you'll be glad you did.
