Sorry first post so if someone could fill in the blanks for me - couldn't get pic attached

The M SUB has a powerful 10" loudspeaker driver fitted to the bottom of the cabinet, with 2" voice coil and large magnet size to handle very high power levels for long periods without distress. Its paper cone diaphragm is very stiff to keep distortion and colouration to a minimum. The rubber suspension surround is smaller than normal and quite stiff, which also helps to reduce distortion and low frequency over-hang. In short it has been designed to enable the M Sub to integrate perfectly with a two-channel system that requires additional bass extension. However, it is also well suited to the needs of a 5.1 system and can provide exceptional bass extension for movies.

To further boost the fidelity the M SUB has a very stiff cabinet with extensive internal bracing and thick walls, which is rarely found in conventional subwoofers. It has a completely sealed section at the back of the cabinet to house its high powered 300 Watt amplifier. This technique is more normally found in professional speakers.

To further improve the sound quality Epos does not use port tuning to achieve increased bass extension. This helps to avoid air turbulence noises ('chuffing') from interfering with the fidelity of the loudspeaker. It also avoids the usual peak in bass at one frequency that usually characterizes the sound of inferior 5.1 type subwoofers.

As a general rule, stereo systems tend to be difficult to integrate with conventional sub woofers because, for the most part, sub woofers are generally not designed to match them, and therefore suit 5.1 systems only. The Epos M SUB is different and was conceived as a means of extending the frequency response of a small pair of bookshelf speakers, rather than just producing large outputs at one particular frequency, such as 60 Hz.

This may appear to contradict established principles, but Epos engineers have not limited themselves only to designing a product that plays 'one note' sound. For that reason the M SUB is capable of extending low frequencies with a relatively flat response down to 20 Hz. This is most unusual and would normally be unheard of in conventional woofers because, apart from anything else, their cabinets and amplifiers would rattle and buzz, due to the simple method of construction used. As a consequence of the design principles, this M SUB is exceptionally dynamic when part of a 5.1 system.

Back panel controls include variable Volume, Low Filter, High Filter and Phase adjustment controls. Low and High Level Inputs allow the M sub to be driven either from loudspeaker outputs direct from a power amp or pre-amp signal, which will not load the driving amplifier as the M sub's low level input is high impedance. Its Power Switch features a standby function that sends the amplifier to sleep when not used and wakes up automatically when it receives a signal. The amplifier is able to work in most regions as it has an AC Voltage Selector Switch and mains fuse, accessible from the rear panel.

Additional features to be found in the M Sub are over-current protection and over temperature cut-out. The M SUB does not use a compression limiter to pre-distort the signals it cannot handle. However, no amplifier has infinite power capabilities and has to be protected against destroying itself under extreme conditions.

With a cosmetic design similar to the M series range of speakers, the M SUB is available in the three finishes - light cherry, dark cherry and black ash.

The M Sub is designed to be a down firing speaker, with fixed height legs to stand on. These can be used on their own or with the matching wooden plinth that protects the driver and allows the driver to breath properly. 6mm carpet spikes or soft foam pads can be fixed to the bottom of the plinth, depending on the floor surface or personal preference.

this sub costs more than that whole set up? i'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that it just is. It's a serious bit of kit, not a laptop accessory

I wouldn't consider z-5500's laptop accessories and i wouldn't consider this serious kit. It is a cardbox box

Got to agree, some people make utterly ridiculous comments on this site. Just stick the thing behind a sofa or something jeez.

Quality does matter with speakers.

Keep in mind if you live in a flat or house with thin walls etc this will cause a BIG problem.

if you're happy with your box that just goes boom woosh who are we to argue. That big hole in the side that they claim is a tunig port in nothing more than to allow it to pump air and not very well

if you want a sub thats tuneful, fast, and goes deep - its fantastic
#28
Nah i want sub that compliments my viewing pleasure to give a more impact feel. I don't need my house shaking or putting it up to think im one of them annoying assholes who are driving around and u can hear the bass from a 5 mile radius.

I even put the bass down on my z-5500's since i thought it was over the top.

and i was merely pointing out the fact that a bass is only there to do low frequencies so i would have thought people may of wanted to spend more money on the actual speakers themselves which are what is actually quite important
#29
You would be looking for something similar to to mine, which goes all the down to 10hz

I would have agreed with you a year ago when I had a 'cheap' Gale sub but then I upgraded to a 'proper' sub (Quad L-ite, £200, bargain). The difference was unbelievable: You don't 'hear' the bass like on my old sub and it bears no comparison to the boyracers subs you hear. This is a serious bit of kit for people who appreciate proper home cinema.

The Logitech system is fine for a beginner or for your PC but don't confuse it with a 'proper' surround sound setup. Of course, if you are only used to this kind of setup then you wouldn;t know the difference - not your fault!

I used to have a REL Quake (cost me £750) but had it stolen when house was burgled. Been looking for a replacement but can't afford my original budgeted purchase. So this might be just what i need. Though i will need to go somewhere to have an audition first before i buy. Otherwise good price, heat added.

On the subject about another poster about the port and "it's just a subwoofer". There different types of subwoofer enclosures, ported, sealed, band pass. They all provide different types of sound is and suits different types of music. IMHO the bass notes are just as important as the the main speakers.

just sent mine back as the repair has a 1 year guarantee, im just going to use it as a spare of give it to my dad loads of stuff on avforum about them not lasting. They now say not to leave them powered up or they wont last ffs

suniil - nice pics - whats the av rack - where did you get it and price if you don't mind me asking?
#39
Should be a good sub, as EPOS has always been great quality.

however, £ 600+ for any sub just seems to be far too much money, then again , same could be said for any loudspeaker with a high price

in terms of value for money, £ 250 seems the correct price for this sub, I dont think it should ever have been £ 600 + , but of course, they will charge what they think they can get for it, rather than what it should cost

as for the logitech comparision, PLEASE , you can not compare the one note thump of such a system, to a true sub like this, Ive heard the logi subs, and they are awfull, thumpy one note 'bass' that ruins the sound, cheap and nasty pc systems that offer zero hi fi quality sound...... they are like toys compared to true hi fi gear like Epos.

that's a hack! Ikea best range bookshelve is the one. 2 Units put together fits perfectly in living room. each one costs £40ish
