I wouldn't worry about it. Just imagine how hot it gets in the back of those non air conditioned delivery trucks.

I must say, I'm surprised at the number of people that have jumped on this speaker. I wouldn't have thought many would have room for it.

Here's a question. Given that the center channel is mainly for dialog, how low does the speaker really have to go? A quick search shows that the lowest fundamental in the male voice is around 85 Hz, do you really need a speaker that goes down to 36 Hz?

You really have to hear the difference to appreciate it Fred. There is a night and day difference.

Also, it's not just dialogue (movies). It's instruments too in Dolby Surround or for a SACD or DVD-A.

I know I should be patient, but are there any updates for the old/new driver situation? I'm really hoping that Axiom will allow us an upgrade to the new ones, I'm really starting to like the looks of them, especially in the light maple;)

You should call Axiom on the telephone.

IF they are (and we don't know that they are), they'll probably be a bit happier to do it at the factory then to ship you a whole new set of drivers. So I would certainly advise calling them ASAP.
