I had posted a few weeks back asking if a sub was needed for a guy who well doesn't care for the boom boom and wondered if a sub was even needed with two M80's and VP180 center that I was quite satisfied with. My intention was well it better be good, 1,400 dollars good or this is going back.

Well needless to say all the advice everyone gave me was correct, i almost don't even know the sub exists but the depth of sound coming from my movie soundtracks has increased. In fact after I ran the calibration with it set to half power my first intention was to turn it down expecting to get calls from the neighbor but as it turns out it was perfect just as is. Next was playing with the crossover. I set the EP500 to 180hz so as to not interfere with the Pioneer calibration and tested 120, 100, 80, 50 and 40hz with all speakers set to small. I ended up settling at 80hz because even though the M80s had no problem going lower the EP500 just produced a better smoother punchier base in that range, even at 100hz it sounded just as good to me with the EP500 playing that high.

Of course I do wonder if the EP350 would have been just as good of an experience at a lot less money but damn the EP500 just looks so good so that's worth something.

So if anyone is on the fence who hates hearing the honda civic with a 1000w sub rolling down the street this is truly the opposite of that. smile

No. The EP350 is ported where the EP500 is sealed. That gives it the very tight base that you were talking about.

Movies and music without a sub is like pancakes without syrup.

Enjoy your syrup sir smile

My buddy couldn't get at his trees this year due to too much snow. No home made syrup for me. I'm very sad.

Oh that is a true sorrow.
I bought some birch syrup a few weeks ago. More expensive than maple syrup (far less vendors) but not a bad alternative.
Considering how many birch trees exist in this country, it should become another industry. It's much better known up in the Yukon.

Interesting. How does the flavor compare?

If you haven't tried birch syrup, give it a go. It is way more expensive, but when you're way up in the Yukon, maple trees are harder to find.
The birch syrup is similar to a maple dark amber. It has a heavier more wild flavour. It is not uncommon for an addition of fructose or sucrose to the final product to ensure the sugar quantity is sufficient so that the syrup is not bitter. I've found it makes for a great base for bbq sauces and basting.
Awesome on salmon. I have added it to mustard base bbq sauces for ribs as well.

We've tried this one.

Well, so far, I can't find it locally. Perhaps I'll order some.

Thread derailed!! In a most Canadian fashion.

I went to a few websites and some of them listed locations for which they retail their product. That's how i found a shop locally which carries it. Probably alot cheaper to buy direct if you can though. I think we paid about $24 for a 750mL bottle when i can get maple syrup for about $14 for 1L.
