Epic 50 500 Home Theater System
Axiom's Epic 50 / 500 system is designed for serious listeners who desire spectacular subwoofer bass extension for blockbuster depth-charge explosions, powerful bass drum and pipe organ reverberation.
The EP500 DSP subwoofer maximizes its 500-watt power to produce deep, clean bass in larger rooms -- far cleaner and at louder levels than smaller subs are capable of. The system will deliver convincing multi-channel surround sound with music or movie soundtracks together with remarkable deep bass that is truly subterranean—as low as 13 Hz in some rooms. The M50 tower speakers deliver exciting DVD movie and multichannel music playback. And because the M50 tower main speakers are rated at 8-ohms, any good-quality A/V receiver will easily drive them in rooms up to 6,000 cu. ft.
The M50 tower speakers achieve realistic dynamics with a spacious soundstage and neutral, high-accuracy music reproduction. They feature an attractive 35.5-inch cabinet with dual 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofers and a titanium-dome tweeter. The VP100 center speaker has good power handling and wide dispersion for fine dialog intelligibility and a seamless front soundstage. The QS4 quadpolar surrounds, with four drivers each, deliver an astonishing sense of envelopment in the ambient soundfield with movies or music. Center and surrounds can be wall-mounted or stand-mounted.
If listening distances exceed 15 feet from the front speakers, a VP150 center channel is advised, as it will deliver better dialog and special effects clarity in larger rooms.
