I wish I could find a home with a dedicated home theater room for as good a deal as these subs

I'm starting to consider them just for the price, What a steal. Who ever said you can have too many subs (besides the wife). LOL!

2 of these or One Empire?
My room currently has a monolith in?
OR a PB12 ultra?

There is many a discussion on your question on AVS, and probably here! The argument is one Empire has 30" of woofer, where 2 Legends would have 48" of woofer. I think I said that right! I'm just trying to figure out how if my Paradigm PS1200 (10+yrs old) can shake me, what would a Legend or HSU VTF-3 MK2 do in my setup?!

I'm getting two, but the shipping cost is killer.

Where can I get a coupon code? Email me if you've got one...

Also, what types of cables are needed to connect two of these subs to an Onkyo TX-NR708?

Thanks!

It doesn't work out like you would think. A pair of 12" drivers have about the same cone area as a single 18". A pair of 15" drivers are about equal to a single 21" driver.

These are rough estimates of course, but the rule of thumb is that it takes 2 drivers to equal one driver that's 2 sizes bigger.

There are no coupons I'm aware of, but the value seems right for the cost. As for the cable connection, you would just need two rca cables, one to each sw since your AVR is 7.2 (the .2 gives you two subwoofer outputs) so no need for a splitter.

Re: Epik Subwoofers new Legend model now available!

I just don't see where the excitement is coming from. Their website shows no measurements at all. The enclosure is very small for a dual 12. Low end response is likely anemic as a result. There'd have to be a lot of eq down low and they don't have the amplifier power for that.

I dunno, maybe just me...

The magenta is the MFW-15 and the green is the Epik Legend.
Further tests resulted in the Legend providing +/-3dB from 16hz-80hz.
