Got IANs old v3 ep800 today

Notice anything? I've never seen ep800 woofers with centers?



manual for v3





I do have some damage on one side, has anyone tried getting marks out of these wood speakers?

I probably had some radically designed turbo woofers put in from back in the 70s. smile

Newf , is the mark on the sub just a scuff or is the wood dented from an impact. Wrestling those buggers around I can see it might get bumped.

I pulled one out, they are marked EP600 woofers. The AMP looks identical to my EP500, probably need to pull that out and look too as now I'm doubting it all. It has dedicated rca in and outs, which the 800 v3 or v4 isn't supposed to have as they use an adapter via the xlr.

So I never got an EP800, I got Frankenstein? Someone at Axiom drunk smile?

my ep600 I've had for a long time is a V2 model. It is the Horizontal design and I used to have it up below my screen, I now have 2 350's up front and the ep600 is in the back standing vertical. The woofer looks like the brochures.

looks like another speaker was stacked on its end


black marks from rubber legs, and what appears to be ink from a label

rest of speaker is fine. Just that one side.

you should mask everything off and paint it a different color.

As far as the woofer design I think that is correct. The woofers in the EP subs changed from the Ti days to the V2s, V3s, etc.. I think that is a newer design than what my V2 has in it. Also, the brochures didn't always keep up with new pictures as Axiom changed their technology. This is true for all their speakers.
