i used to have the klf 20s,i had to block off the midrange horn with a band-aid,that horn was too much,but when you wanted to feel like you were at a concert,those were the right speakers for the job!!!!

Accuracy...forget it?????? What?!?!
You are honestly expecting people to believe Klipsch are not accurate unless in an outdoor setting? That is an utterly ridiculous statement, especially from an "expert".
I was considering an Axiom speaker purchase until I started reading this forum, it seems to me that, although I realize these forums are answered by Axiom owners and "experts" that are on the payroll, people really seem to indicate Axiom is the best speaker ever made,and all others are "crap" I really do not think ANY speaker company can honestly state they are the "best".

I do not understand why people have not figured out the honest answer to what speaker is best, and that is...whatever one sounds best to YOU, audio is about listening, and we as human beings all hear things differently, thus the many speaker manufactures out there, if we all heard the same way, there would only be a need for one manufacturer.
Seriously, there are many high end quality speakers on todays market, Klipsch, Paradigm, Axiom etc etc.
It all comes down to, which sound do you prefer, I do not agree that one has more of one thing then another, I do however believe that you can find the perfect speaker for YOU by listening, to the sound, not others opinions.

Base your speaker preference on the music, movies etc that you yourself enjoy and listen to, all the genres should sound good, whether it be Jazz, Rock, R&B or that great movie you just picked up on BluRay.
Come now people, stop judging and giving opinions based on opinions, we have a huge audio world in front of us, lets all enjoy whatever speaker we find is right for us, and I will say, they aren't all for everyone, again, whatever is best sounding to YOU and for your audio listening habits.
Listen to what you hear, not what you have heard!

I don't know what forum you're reading, but it's not this one. I don't remember a single time someone on here has claimed that Axiom makes the best speakers and all others are crap.

Weird post.

I realize this is an Axiom site but it does get tiring to keep reading that they are better then all the other speakers out there. If I didn't know better, I would think I was on a Bose site...haha.
I have listened to Polk, Energy, Klipsch, Paradigm,and Boston Accoustics along with a couple of others. They all sound different,some I like better then others.
I bought Paradigm Monitor 11v.6 in March of this year and I could not find a bad review from a professional.
A month ago I purchased a set of Klipsch RF82, I run them as A/B speakers and they seem to really compliment each other. I have compared them on 4 occasions and still cannot pick one over the other.
People say they know what a good speaker should sound like, but I wonder if they know what the instruments should sound like? A cheap drum cymbal as compared to a Sabian cymbal, a crash versus a splash, a cheap snare drum compared to a $400 Pearl snare drum.

People say you can pick up the Axiom's cheaper, but in actual fact I got my Paradigm's for $1,100, and my RF82's for $900. And I would compare each of those to the M80's at $1,500. I am not saying Axiom sucks, they are nice looking and if I were going to purchase a pair it would be the M80, obviously I like big speakers.

You have good speakers, I have good speakers. I wish people would just be a little more open and just discuss speakers in general rather then slam other speakers. I feel that listening and discussing just gains you more knowledge. After all, we do have the same things in mind.
There is nothing like a good pair of speakers.
Thanks,

Sorry gentlemen, I was answering a totally different post, not sure how that one ended up there.
And to answer your question, yes it is this site, I have been reading posts here for the past month, and it seems anytime anyone brings up another speaker manufacturer, everyone jumps on it with all bad things and says they can't compare to the Axiom.
I am a proud Klipsch owner and prefer not to bash any other manufacturer, to each his own!
