6 weeks in on the new EP 500, its really opening up now and I made input adjustments to the calibration on my Anthem AVM 60 after shutting down ARC. The ARC set my sub levels at -1db. I moved it up a notch to 0db then played some known vinyl cuts.... wow, I am amazed. What is 1 db? maybe a 20 or 30 percent increase in power to the EP500? I will say that the EP 500 is mastering my Model T's smile The perfect compliment.

My Gin switch EP 800 was shipped today and I will put it into service mid week next week. It won't be broken in on arrival, but I'll get the idea right off. Mojo is going to be jumped on this smile

Music just isnt music without a sub especially classic rock for me. The 800 with the 600 should really balance out any nulls, adding a second sub is heavenly. I never realized how important it is to let a sub break in ,but i replaced a driver in one of my small subs and it was anemic as soon as i started using it. it took about a week and then it cam alive.

I threw the gut punch switch a couple of days ago, Slim. smile

I temporarily have two v4 EP800s and have not found a benefit to use two for my MLP. In fact, unless very carefully tuned, two are very detrimental. There are more opportunities to get two wrong than there are to get right.

A single EP800v4 is more than adequate for a 10,000 ft^3 room. I can hit 110 dB in my space without breaking a sweat. I just hear every deep, tight, undistorted bass note no matter the gain.

Mojo , the EP800 is essentially 2 subwoofers already so yeah i can see how you wouldnt really require 2 of them together. I have a pair of 10'a on a concrete foundation that shake the walls and move the couch. A pair of 12's in my car makes the windows flex.

Really your room is 10,000 cubic feet. why so big

With the amount of power the 4 drivers produce you could probably overload most rooms.

In my 2000 foot room my Ep500 seems adequate, though that never stops the want of more power!!!

In the last couple years I've had my 500 it's never made a bad sound. To which I could easily make my old $200 specials chuff.

My room is only 4,200ft^3. Slim's is 10,000. I am extrapolating from my experience in my room and saying that a single EP800v4 should be more than adequate for a 10,000 ft^3 space.

Thats still a good sized room, i get by with half that. That being said it depends on how much stuff is taking up space in that room. For example a room that size could hold a couple rows of 4 full size seating, along with other furniture. 2 of those subs in that room seems like overkill even to a bass head like me but thats the fun of this indoor sport . smile

I have a 70,000 BTU gas fireplace, a laz-boy chair, a 4-seat leather couch and ottoman, a ping pong table and paintings covering 70% of the wall surfaces. The floor has thick underlay and Berber. There's room for more stuff like more speakers. smile

I've been playing it for 38 years and I am no better than when I started. Ditto with tennis and squash. smile
