Your Story: Post Hurricane Sandy Rebuild

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amie C @ 9:27 am

We love hearing stories about how you’re using your Axiom speakers.  This one, about a family rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy, was really interesting because the customer is also a musician.  Read Clifford’s story below.

My New Jersey home was flooded by Hurricane Sandy.  As part of the opportunity to rebuild, and to feel good about moving back home, I decided I wanted to re-orient the TV room and wire it for sound and cat 6 networking.

Instead of the TV facing 15 feet to the back wall, it’s been reposition over the fireplace and is visible from the entire 15 x 38′ room which is really 3 rooms in one.  As a musician, sound man and recording hobby guy, quality sound is important to me.  I know a ton about live sound, very little about HT sound.  I know speakers probably carry the most weight in the quality of a system.  I’m a research guy and after lots of online reading I landed on the axiom brand, did lots more reading and went for it.

I like the fact that it’s a direct to consumer product.  It makes sense that some overhead is eliminated and that value passed to the end user.  I wanted in wall speakers, and the design of the self contained boxes that are extended slightly from the wall and/or ceiling made logical sense to me with the DIY sound background that I have.  Online, I found good reviews and bad review as there would be for most any product, I liked the fact that you have a forum for your supporters.  I’m more of a forum lurker than a poster – but it’s great for a guy like me to get a quick beat on what people like about the company and products and the like.

I moved my family back to our house on March 9th.  It’s still a construction zone with odds and ends to finish up.  For example the fireplace mantel is not started yet (therefore I have not installed the VP100 center channel yet ).  That said I did the audyssey for the speakers I do have set up and I can tell you that it’s absolutely amazing!  It’s exactly what I had hoped to accomplish.  Also, one of your sales guys actually called at one point during the order and I requested advice on placement of the rear surround speakers that I placed in ceiling (M2 in wall) and I followed the advice and could not be happier with the placement, (I also have the M3 as mains and also using your smallest sub).  Very, very happy with the sound.
