Long time lurker, first time posting \:\)

Ninja I have one question.

What delayed you in shipping some crossovers to Axiom up to this point? You had over a week to ship them out before this announcement today.

Hello Dr. House. All networks are custom built at the time of ordering and I did not have all parts in stock. We do stock a good number of items here but we were missing a few things.

You'll note on the SNS site it lists 3-6 weeks from order to delivery. We always try and improve on that of course but we also have a little buffer built in case we have component back ordered from the manufacturer.

Ah, one more item... a pair of networks is built over the span of three days as we must properly dry the paint and adhesives before wiring up and shipping.

Thanks

Thanks for adding the measurement charts. I have no doubt that the speaker does sound different since you changed the crossover point from about 4k to about 2k.

Having said that, I wonder how a blind test would work with a stock M22, and one with cheap Radio Shack L/Cs to adjust the XO to 2k?

Thanks for the reply. I am dissapointed this fell through. I was very interested to see how the measurements and double blind testing would pan out.

Unless you are highly skilled, you can't just drop in a few parts in the stock network and expect it to work properly.

That said, if you are highly skilled and want to do it, I say go for it \:D

House,

It can still happen... I'm sure one of you guys here has a decent measurement rig (You can get Praxis for $1K) and can set up a blind test. Someone already emailed me about this and I told him it was A-OK with me...

I wasn't suggesting "dropping in" inductors and capacitors into the existing network. I was suggesting making a new "network" using cheap parts (the "network" is nothing more than an inductor in series with the speaker, and a cap in parallel for a 2nd order XO). I'm not sure what the individual impedances are in the Axiom speaker, but if they are 4 ohm, you would only need to buy a .45 mH inductor and a 14 microfarad cap.

Anyway, I'm sorry you are not sending it over for testing, I was really looking forward to seeing the results.
