Good point. The artillery blasts and depth charges in Girl with a Pearl Earring are pretty mind-blowing. Then when Scarlett Johansson taps on the tank...

I'd give up my sub if Scarlett Johansson was in the room!

You won't be needing the EP600 for it either... probably no content below 80 Hz, just cellos and violins

EDIT -- well, a cello does go down to 65 Hz but you still don't need the sub...

For an update, we are getting SERIOUS about working over the EP-600. Last night, it as "Star Wars", and this morning we watched "The Matrix".

The EP-600 seems to be tuned to the 18 Hz - and from that point and up, it delivers HUGE amounts of bass.

There is a lot of physics going on with this subwoofer, and some really intelligent choices. Take a large enclosure (appx 5.5 cubic feet), put in a high excursion driver, a large port with that 18 Hz tuning frequency and combine it with a sensible DSP set up which makes it bullet proof.

On "The Matrix", it handled everything tossed at it. During the Helicopter scene, the room was TOTALLY pressurized, yet the bass managed to not cause the type of wall vibrations the SVS PB12-Ultra does. The combo of having the sub driver WELL off the floor, and the one inch thick rubber feet give the EP-600 the same benefit we realized by putting the SVS PB12-Ultra on a "sub-Dude", which is $50.

For an EP-600 "deal", if you look at a "B" stock, the price becomes $1575 delivered. ( $1750 less 10%) ...

A wood finished Ultra with sub-dude is $1448 delivered, with "B" stock $50 less - $1398.

They are natural competitors, for sure.

This is shaping up as a GREAT shootout.

What the heck is a sub-dude ? I get the play on words but what is it ?

EDIT -- here's what I know so far :

- Auralex makes an isolation platform a few inches high, sounds like this is what Craig is referring to

- a LOT of people use SubDude as their handle on boards

- there is a chain of sub shops in Charlotte with the same name :

Subdude Inc.
10901 University City Blvd, Charlotte
(704) 595-9990

Subdude Inc.
1620 E 4th Street, Charlotte
(704) 334-9998

I have to thank Al Gore for inventing the Internet and delivering so much wonderful trivia into our lives.
