". . . 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. "
