The Epik Empire looks very interesting at $799.

I agree - the Epik does look good. I've always liked Revel and especially their B15 sub. Dual Empires Vs. the single B15; that would be interesting.

For this testing they will not be comparing dual subwoofers to a single subwoofer.

The Audioholics thread says that Axiom declined to participate. I was looking forward to the EP800 getting some attention and a chance for comparison with other subs in its class. What gives?

I was hoping too that the EP800 would be involved and the fact it is a new product with little exposure. Gene knows his stuff as well as anybody else in this industry and with "shootouts" such as these I know he would not subscribe to subjective comments such as "night and day" and "blowing out of the water", which scare a lot of manufactures away for tests such as these. In fairness, Axiom is not the only company that declined.

If most decline, it opens the possibility for smaller, relatively unknown companies getting started in the market. After all, it is free publicity and tests such as these bring lots of additional traffic to their website.

You'll just have to console yourself by listening to its awesomeness by yourself.

Which is better than a review by anyone else.

I'm glad to see the 5 names on that list are not your usual suspects! I know ID can often provide the best best bang for your buck but for us Canuck's it's not always the case.

Just my 2 cents... smile

PS:I know where my money is going wink!
