Axiom Environmental Chamber Simulates Extreme Climates

Filed under: What's New — Alan @ 8:09 am
Humidity Chamber

One of the newer additions to Axiom’s testing regimen is a special temperature and humidity chamber that can duplicate sweltering tropical heat and humidity or dry, freezing conditions—basically, any weather that an Axiom loudspeaker or amplifier is likely to encounter during its travels and residence anywhere on planet Earth.

The chamber, pictured here with Axiom Electrical Engineer Tom Cumberland inside preparing to be roasted by the heat and humidity he used to endure in Miami, Fla., is a Tenney model TH65SPL. It’s big, measuring 54 x 54 x 72 inches, and can be set to any temperature from –20 degrees Celsius to +100 degrees C (that’s –4 degrees Fahrenheit to 212 degrees F, respectively), and from 20% to 98% relative humidity. Because of its generous size, the chamber can also be used to test our largest speakers and subwoofers, Axiom electronics or even to subdue a rebellious Axiom employee.

Alan Lofft was, for 13 years, Editor in Chief of Sound & Vision, Canada’s largest and most respected audio/video magazine. He edited Sound & Vision (Canada) until 1996, when he moved from Toronto to New York to become Senior Editor at Audio magazine.
Lofft has been writing about hi-fi and video professionally for over 20 years, ever since his first syndicated newspaper column, “Sound Advice”, began appearing weekly in The Toronto Star, Canada’s largest-circulation daily newspaper. In the late 1970s, he became a contributing editor, columnist, and equipment reviewer at AudioScene Canada, the leading national consumer electronics magazine at the time.
