No I wasn't planning on using them together. I couldn't do that anyway using only one AMP. The 901 requires the Boss EQ to work properly and, if you use the Boss EQ with any other speaker, it would destroy them. The reason I'm trying the M60's is because of all the good reviews I read about them. And Technology has changed in the past years. I'll let everyone know my resulys after Ido the A/B test between them. I'm not going to use any test equipment only my ears. I still wish I could of tried the M80 in a side by test with the 901's after all the 901's are the top of the line from boss and I should be using the top of the line from Axiom.

Right after the 901s I had some Def Techs. They where better than the 901s and the M80s are far better than the Def Techs imo. You should see a pretty big improvement with the M60s. I still liked the 901s in all the years I had them.

Jakewash you are correct. The family was gone so I cranked up the M60's for the first time, and it really brought the vocals
way more forward.My ears are still ringing!Man these speakers are nice.

Hy,

To make the comparison as fair as possible, I suggest you calibrate each speaker to the same SPL level using an SPL meter. I also suggest that you listen to a number of different types of music at varying levels of gain on your receiver. Finally, try to listen to the details, nuances and spatial cues from each speaker type. You and the Axioms should form an equilateral triangle.

Yep. And you can get the same clarity from the 80s without cranking them although cranking does make them more vibrant.

It's the ability to be clear/detailed and open at low volumes that I love about the M80s.

Sorry Mojo I have not done the calibration test i am not familiar
with it.This spl tool is not something I have used before.The only tool i use is my ears.I do have a equilateral triangle with my speakers.I am sure the M80's sound better at every level but for right now I am enjoying my M60s instead of Bose.
