The contrast in opinions is interesting. Makes you appreciate the difficulty of a company like Axiom trying to figure out what to make a speaker look like. I love the look, in theory anyway. Some more pics from a distance will help. But I like the more modern approach this represents. Many of the cutting edge designs show the drivers. (E.g, B&W ; Gallo ) I personally hate the 70's fabric covering and think that is a dying design. All that precision and money hidden by some 3 cent fabric - just irks me. But I can certainly appreciate that others have different taste. Axiom should offer such upgrades just to expand their customer base. Make them an option at minimal markup and you broaden the design while not increasing cost to the others.

Anyway…nice work. Dying for the details. Most pointedly, where did you get the mesh?

Those finishes are actually the optional vinyl finishes aren't they? they're very convincing though.

Correct. The High-gloss Cherry finish is vinyl.

The Highgloss vinyl finished are amazing. I think that the only way you could get better is to do an oil finish on natural wood.

From any distance, you can't really tell the difference between wood an hg vinyl.

Always nicer to the speakers, from a distance the grills blend so well with the finish, they almost look invisible.

Just what I thought, Chet they look even better from a distance. Everything blends so very well and the grills add a rustic approach to your speakers that flow great with your beautiful decor ... I really like the grills.
