Dwight, Ontario (PRWEB) June 2, 2005
Axiom Audio, the loudspeaker company that uses a rational approach to loudspeaker design based on careful acoustical measurements and uncompromising double-blind listening tests, today introduced the Epicenter EP600 digitally controlled subwoofer, which is capable of reproducing high-volume deep-bass musical frequencies to 16 Hz in an anechoic environment, one of the lowest musical tones audible to the human ear.
The Epicenter EP600 subwoofer represents a major advance towards Axiom's goal of seeking "musical truth," -- producing the lowest, cleanest, loudest, smoothest distortion-free bass available in this price range and cabinet size. Used in combination with either the M80ti or M60ti, Axiom's top-of-the-line tower speakers, the new EP600 digital sub effectively extends sound reproduction across the entire range of musical (and non-musical) frequencies to levels that are more felt than heard.
Unlike many other subwoofers that only claim extension to such depths but wimp out in real-life tests, the Axiom 600 uses a digital "algorithm" and a Digital Signal Processor chip. Using this "digital roadmap", the DSP controls every frequency from 17 Hz to 100 Hz, never deviating more than 1.5 dB through this entire range. Utilizing a massive 12-inch driver with a 3-inch diameter dual voice-coil and an Axiom custom-engineered amplifier that produces up to 600 watts of output power, the 600 sub will generate 111 dB SPL anechoic. In actual rooms, the EP600 is capable of even greater output by as much as 11 dB.
Reached at Colquhoun Audio Laboratories (Axiom's R&D facility), Axiom founder and chief designer Ian Colquhoun called the EP-600's unique digital control system a "breakthrough," and said, "It represents a new performance range not achievable in a consumer subwoofer anywhere else in the marketplace or at any price."
For placement versatility, the EP600 subwoofer is offered in two orientations: vertically, in a floorstanding version, or horizontally, on its side. It measures 45.5" x 15" x 17" and has a suggested retail price, including shipping in North America, of $1,750 USD.
Today's Axiom speaker line offers a wide range of compact and floor-standing models that move the benchmarks further than ever. Axiom now produces eight-sided seamless cabinets with the ground-breaking Anti-Standing Wave (ASW) wedge-shaped design, esoteric aluminum-cone and titanium drivers, and internal crossover network innovations.
Axiom has combined the results of its acoustical measurement and listening tests to build a complete line of stereo and home theater loudspeakers. By emphasizing the practical application of ongoing research, Axiom continues to extend people's expectations of performance and value. Indeed, Axiom's most expensive tower speaker, the six-driver M80ti, is just $1,240 per pair. Complete Axiom home theater surround sound systems range from $1,100 to $4,000.
