Filed under: Audio Knowledge,How-To,Research — Tags: , , — Amie C @ 3:01 pm

Axiom just released its latest driver, a 6.5″-woofer that was borne of an almost ground-up rebuild by engineer Andrew Welker.  Here is his description of what changes the woofer underwent under his direction, and what you can expect to hear going forward.

Andrew Welker:  Ian recently made an announcement on the message boards about a new high-powered woofer for the LFR Omnidirectional Speaker and a new model that is going to be coming out shortly called an M100.  He’s asked me to explain what went into building the new woofer.

Testing Speakers in Production

A thread on our message boards about how we test loudspeakers in production inspired a new video and plant walk-about with Andrew Welker.  Watch as he explains how we go about testing speakers and speaker parts in production.

Andrew Welker: Axiom’s testing is very involved because there are a number of steps to testing the components:  the crossovers, the drive units, and then the entire system.  It is not simply a sweep to see if the speaker makes sound: we actually do very detailed measurements every step of the way.

Building an M80 Floorstanding Speaker: A Look at What’s Inside

Filed under: Audio Knowledge — Tags: , , — Amie C @ 7:19 am

Most people only ever see the outside of their loudspeakers, and that’s probably a good thing!  But if you’ve ever wondered what goes into building a loudspeaker, then this video will walk you through the inner workings of an M80 Floorstanding Speaker.  Axiom Engineer Andrew Welker explains the parts inside and Axiom’s innovations in the loudspeaker building process.

Andrew Welker:  I thought it would be quite interesting today to show you a view of either a speaker you own, if it happens to be an Axiom Product, or actually what goes into building a speaker box.  Obviously most of the time we only see what’s going on on the outside of the speaker, not what’s inside.
