The EP500 uses intelligent DSP to make everything perfect. The EP500 has a perfectly linear response down to 18Hz. This gives you bass realism like you have never experienced before. The intelligent DSP also means your EP500 plays really loud without ever having to worry about unwanted pops and noises coming from your subwoofer. If you've been longing for the kind of seat-rumbling experience you get in a good movie theater, you'll get it with the EP500. Bring on War of the Worlds!
"In every configuration that I tried this sub in, it performed at world-class levels. It is both able to convey subtle musical notes, and earth-shaking low-frequency movie effects effortlessly. It's not a hard stretch to say that this sub's performance matches or exceeds the best 12" subs that are available at ANY price."– Geoff Cintron, AudioReview.com
The amplifier in the EP500 is in a completely different class than other subwoofers selling for under $4,000. It has a large toroidal transformer and 66,000 uf of capacitance storage. This amplifier will deliver big bass peaks effortlessly. The EP500's massive 12-inch aluminum driver with a 3-inch diameter voice coil is capable of handling the high-power peaks from the amplifier easily. And the special algorithm commands from the DSP will deliver peak performance without ever being overdriven. Its maximum undistorted output of 120 dB is louder than a full orchestra in a concert hall. At last, professional cinema realism is available in your home theater!
"When I cranked the volume up to obscene levels... I couldn’t hear any distortion from the 12" cone no matter how much I increased the volume – just solid, deep, room-shaking bass. The Axiom EP500 is a bargain among high-end subwoofers." – Vince Hanada, HomeTheaterSound

The bass was well-extended with oodles of punch and slam... You could hear clear delineation of the bass notes, never sounding boomy or one-notey as do some high-excursion subs. With the EP500 engaged, the hairs stood up on my arms as I felt the adrenaline rush from the power of the mighty sub.
