Did I mention I was working on a real wood veneer sports car, Tharkun? I would be honored to have you as my first customer...

I'm with Bruce and Dennis; I cannot imagine that the veneer material of the speaker will have a perceptible effect on the sound.

Craig, I seem to remember Alan saying that - despite some user protests about perceived quality/durability - the speaker grills were designed specifically to ensure acoustic transparency, including resonances and refractions. Like you, I'm curious if they reengineered the grill frame.

Peter, I thought Stevie was still too young for Pinewood Derby?

I think it's great that Axiom is doing this, and they seem to be doing it in the usual Axiom way.

Does anyone know whether the feet can be purchased seperately? My guess is no.... but I wouldn't mind some upgraded shoes for my M80's....

That's worth a phone call.

I'm sure most every speaker company designs their grills to be accoustically transparent. Most are sturdier than Axioms. (sorry Axiom, but it's true!)

Wow, will they take my M3Tis as a tradein? Those are gorgeous!

I can't see this impacting sound any. The sound would depend most on the structural integrity and structural material of the cabinet (MDF). The skin on the outside should just be a matter of how pretty it is.

Again, worth a call. I was kind of thinking about doing that with the M50s, as soon as I get a couple raises...
