The front towers are Studio 100 v.4's and they sound absolutely beautiful!

Johnny, Where are the pictures of the A7-450 at full bore showing the windows and walls flexing?

Has anybody else received their A7S-450? If so let hear about it.

OK 100000Watt I really don't know what to say to that. I'm not just surprised that the statue stays put, but I'd almost expect the speaker next to the sub to get knocked over itself.

I've been playing with my A7S-450 for a few hours. Wife just told me it's time to turn it down for a bit =(

Camera battery is dead, so I'll try and get some pics up later while her ears rest.

Hmmm... Better go out and buy a copy of WOTW & Transformers to give her a proper test..

I'm not usually one to say this...but you really are insane.

I didn't think I'd actually see pictures of those.

Please make one that has both in it.

I want to scare children.

Here is a pic of both, the pic was taken before I had the last 2 amps, and while everything was a mess. lol
Once I get it all dialed in, I will post up the FR.

Seriously, you need to get the korns to match those, do you bridge the ep's into each? Those look incredible. How much spl do you get during Wotw? Can you PM me about cost and such.

When I get them dialed in, I will post build pics, fr graphs. ect. in their own thread.
The EP2500's are bridged, and feed a pair of the 19Ov.2's into a 4 ohm load.
The budget was $3,000.00 and I have not put an exact total yet, but it is very close to the budget number.

I installed a separate breaker panel, so I could add 2 more, if these don't cut it.

Yes $ 3,000.00 for the materials, 4 amps, and 8 drivers.

they are 22" wide, 22.75" deep, and 87.5" tall, and fairly heavy. lol

I'm guessing the rear blew out after he first tested those monsters

Here's a few pics of my new A7S-450.

The box


With my little polk


What good is a size comparison shot without an iPhone?


The box had a few things in the bottom I couldn't identify. I inspected the sub and they don't seem to have come from it. Any ideas?


Also, the sub sounds like something is loose inside whenever it's tilted, maybe it's the rest of the pieces I found in the box? Sounds like a screw sliding across the bottom of the cabinet. It seems to work fine, so I haven't looked inside. Should I be concerned? If I open it up I'll get some internal shots, but I'd rather not do that unless there's a potential problem (better to find now than after the warranty is up.)

Also missing is one of the disks and pads for it. I'm on carpet now, but I'm planning on putting in hardwood floors this summer, so I'll contact eD on Monday for that.

Lastly, I'm going to need to do something about all the pictures on the walls. Whenever I push the sub there are rattles coming from every direction. I figured I'd get some of that felt padding stuff that has adhesive on one side, but if anyone has any better suggestions I'm all ears.

Ok, you are not married - and you never will be married.
