I am planning to drive down to Dwigth and audition a pair of M80s with the EP600..




If you decide to buy your speakers while you're there (which is a good chance ) you should also get a certain % off, I think 8% or something. I know that I did....

I was thinking along those lines as well, just from my limited and crude "treatments" of side FRZ, ie: blankets on the wall, I noticed a huge drop in spaciousness, which I did not really like, to compressed and localized. I tend to crave the wide open soundstage, I especially like material like Enya for that which is really wide and hauting. The blankets came down real fast. But I have not tried to put them on the floor or the ceiling. I would imagine that the ceiling FRZ is probably not desirable and would benefit from an absorbing trap.

I am happy to hear my room dimensions will be ideal

Now I am learning Sketchup so that I can draw the whole thing, then cost it out, built it, treat it..and enjoy it.

Thanks Hay, that's good to know.. they are already a bargin, so an extra 8% is a bonus.

Is the place hard to find ? just curious as I don't know exactly where Dwigth is yet..MapQuest here I come.

Cheers,

Steph

Drive up highway 35 until it stops (at #60, I think). That's Dwight. Turn right. Axiom is on the left a few hundred feet down the road.

Not hard to find at all, here's directions that Amie posted awhile back.

Quote:

From 'the south', take Highway 400 to Barrie, then Highway 11 to Huntsville. Take the third interchange at Huntsville, which is Highway 60. It only goes one way. Dwight is 22 km east of Huntsville. You will drive through the village, and then you'll see Highway 35 and a Petro-Can on the right, and we're 1 km past that on the left. The Cookhouse Restaurant, the Campground, and Axiom are all clustered together there.

Highway 35 is such a beautiful route. If you don't mind getting stuck behind canoes, trailers, etc, you'll have a great drive. It's such a haven for bikers as well, so keep an eye out! You'll see some gorgeous machines cruising by. Just take 35 until it ends and then make a right; we're 1 km from there.

Once you get within 1km away slow down as you see the sign at the last moment.

Until recently you could have just hung outside the NRC, waited for Ian to drive back from using the anechoic chamber, and follow him.

Now Axiom has their own chamber and "subwoofer on a stick" I guess they never see him at the NRC any more
