Well, I finally got my speakers today (couple of weeks early!) and I scrambled in the midst of redecorating the living room (wasn't expecting them so soon!) to try them tonight and wow, even with just the M80's and the sub, they are incredible!

However, My joy of receiving them early is countered with my anger at those idiots at Purolator! They managed to damage ont of the M80 , probably by throwing it on something or bumpint into it with a forklift. I mean, these thing are very well packaged by Axiom. You really have to try hard to damage those in shipping...

Anyway, I'll call it in tomorow and I'm shure Axiom will work something out. They do sound awesome even though the cabinet, and maybe one of the drivers, is damaged a little.

I'll post some pics in the coming weeks when everything is setup as it should.

Glad to hear you like the M80s inspite of the damage. Sorry to hear about the destructive process of shipping. How about posting some pics of the damage, always interested in what transpires during the Purolator process. Thanks

Congrats Jappy, an awesome setup indeed! I imagine you'll be discovering all of the nuances the speakers are capable of for months to come. Enjoy the ride! \:\)

Well, one quick phone call later and Noreen is sending me a replacement right away!

Axiom's reputation for customer service is well deserved!


I'll post pics of the damage later for those who are interested...

Many think driving a forklift is akin to bumper cars.



Yikes.

I just don't get how these carriers keep hiring such fine accountable employees. Maybe they should take it out of their checks, that might help.

Sorry for you problems.
