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.

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...
