Epic 80 500 180 Home Theater System

If crystal-clear dialogue, thrilling highs, and solid, deep bass are on your must-have list for a home theater speaker system, then the Axiom Epic 80 v 500 VP180 is for you.  This home theater system has it all in spades!

With the award-winning M80 tower speakers anchoring the system, you're instantly transfixed by the level of detail you hear in music and movies you've been listening to for years: there is nothing like rediscovering them on a high-end pair of speakers! 

Add in the new VP180 center channel speaker, sonically matched to the M80s and ready to throw voices to the furthers corners of your listening space.  This 'monster center' is blowing away customers with its incredible nuances.  An unheard-of six drivers (tweeters and woofers) combine with three rear ports to create an unprecedented listening experience that pans across the front speakers so seamlessly you'll swear the action is live.

Music or movies: either way, the most exciting experience requires deep bass that you can actually feel, not just hear, and this home theater speaker system has you covered there as well.  The EP500 subwoofer is so powerful it inspired one reviewer to write:

". . . oodles of punch and slam.  With the EP500 engaged, the hairs stood up on my arms as I felt the adrenaline rush from the power of this mighty sub."
-- Gene DellaSala, Audioholics 

The EP500 DSP 500-watt subwoofer is the deepest (down to 13 Hz anechoic response), the smoothest (the DSP controls every frequency from 13 Hz to 150 Hz never deviating more than 1 db through the entire range) and the cleanest loudest bass possible with no distortion.

Coupled with the EP500 sub, the Epic 80 will handle hundreds of watts per channel with music or movie soundtracks.

Last but not least, the surround channels.  Our best-selling surrounds, the QS8 quadpolar speakers, are uniquely designed to send sound top, bottom, left and right.  The result?  You won't be able to tell where the sound ends . . . it goes on and on forever.

"The Axiom QS8 is one of the best, most versatile surround speakers I've heard, managing to sound diffuse or directional as needed. " 
-- Vince Hanada, HomeTheaterSound.com

Professional Ratings & Reviews
"What surprises me is the ability of the system to provide stunning ambient surround information at the same time it provides directional pans and effects.With the Epic 80, if you invite your friends over to listen to a well-produced DVD, you may just be able to charge admission!"
- Clint De Boer, Audioholics
"I can't say enough good things about the Axiom Epic 80 system -- it does so many things well with so few compromises."
- Vince Hanada, HomeTheaterSound
"While listening, I suspected that this system had to be a great set of speakers at nearly twice the price. If you're looking for an audiophile-grade speaker system without the audiophile price tag, you should definitely give this system a listen."
- Shamus Coghlan, Canada HiFi
"This system rocks! Whatever DVD we tested on this system it consistently played clean, with tons of detail at all volumes. These speakers can be played at dangerously high listening levels with no audible distortion."
- Brian Mitchell, Ecoustics
"The entire Epic 80 system is exceptionally clear and capable of impressive dynamic range. The EP500 can play gut wrenchingly deep and with great authority. I won't bother to wax poetic about the Epic 80 system because frankly, your ears will do that well enough once you hear them. Should you be in the market for a truly excellent speaker system, I think that all of Axiom's products deserve a very strong look. Highly Recommended."
- Dave Upton, Home Theater Forum
"From the very first firefight, I was immersed in incredibly intense gunfire and explosions that took place all around me. . . Sounds like rustling leaves, rain, flowing water and flapping wings literally occurred all around the room as I watched. I have watched this series several times and until now, never realized what a difference the experience could be with better audio"
