Will there be an impact to the sound?

The design of the Axiom speakers are not changed, the vinyl is replaced with the wood veneer, the sound quality will remian the same. This is my understanding from talking with the Axiom experts, if Amie or Alan see this post perhaps they will have comments as well.

Given that all dimensions remain identical, any change in sound quality will be unperceiveable. Even if the dimensions (exterior) changed slightly, I still think any difference in sound would be undetectable.

I just had a thought...will these fancy schmancy real wood speakers have upgraded grills? It just wouldn't make sense to put all that time and effort into making a super nice speaker, custom wood veneer, hand stained, fancy shiney feet...Then slap the classic axiom plastic grill on them?

What do you think?

On the site, the custom wood variations also include custom grills and feet choices!

I'm still stuck on the impact wood will bring to the sound. I am having a hard time assuming no effect....... I always read reviews that seem to mention the cabinetry.

Well, in looking at guitars or basses, the different woods resonate to impart a certain tone on the sound (look at all the exotic wood choices) as well as provide good looks. For a speaker, the cabinet should be next to inert (hence why some do the knuckle rap test). The cabinet should not resonante at all so , theoretically, it should not make a difference in sound, just looks.

So, who's going to be the first member to get rosewood high gloss and show us some pretty pictures?

Any takers? Eh?

Doubt I will be the first, and it will not be the high gloss, but will be replacing the twin 600s with a pair of the EP600VSH in Rosewood with Satin finish.
