Curious though as to why the changes from a ported EP500 to a sealed sub.?

I remember a while back someone explaining ported and sealed subs and why the EP500 through testing and blind auditions why it was ported. Now, it is sealed ?

Just realized, maybe it is still ported .... we have not seen all the pics just the fronts. Maybe they are now ported on the rear or bottoms

Not that I doubt you, they do indeed look like they are sealed. But I'm wondering how someone with one post (welcome to the forum, by the way) has this information.

I was told by Debbie that the only difference between the V3 and V4 is, ported will now be sealed and the cabinet shape.

I chose to wait for the V4.

Cool, direct info.

Now you have four posts. Keep this up, and you'll be a "shareholder in the making" in no time. smile

Interesting. Given that it is now sealed, the driver must be substantially redesigned. If it is still a 12" driver then I suspect the cabinet will be smaller as well.

Getting the same performance as the old EP500 with a 12" driver sealed would be an impressive feat!

If it sounds as good as the sealed EP400, it'll be a real winner...
