Following up on our pieces about building a woofer, we thought we’d tell you a little bit about designing and building an Axiom Tweeter. Axiom Founder and President shows you how our current tweeters are built and some design features exclusive to Axiom Audio.

When you have your own home theatre system, why settle for plastic packs of microwave popcorn for movie night snacks? Here are the top 10 hottest trends for you to make at home.

1. Ranch (It’s Not Just For Doritos®)

Ranch never seems to go out of style, it just keeps coming back again, and again. Take your favorite dry packet of ranch dip or dressing mix and sprinkle over a large bowl of freshly popped and buttered popcorn. If you want to make it a truly gourmet popcorn add some grated parmesan cheese.
