If those prices are accurate, they would seem on the high side compared to some of the good quality drivers from Vifa, Peerless, SB Acoustics and similar. Perhaps Peter hit the nail on the head...Axiom manufactures a limited number of drivers compared with companies like Peerless and Vifa, so part of that is reflected in the pricing.

I have no idea whether those prices are high, middle of the road, or low. And I'm not speaking for anyone at Axiom.

But I can tell you that _I_ , as owner of the company, would not be wanting to sell "sets" of the drivers/crossovers that I designed and manufactured, only to have people putting them into cheap boxes and selling them on eBay as "Axiom knockoffs".

Photographers / Videographers have had this problem for years... when someone copies your work (poorly) and then goes around saying "this was done by so and so studio". It just hurts your "brand" and your reputation.

Again, I'm not speaking for Ian. I'm just saying if it were MY company, you bet my pricing for drivers and crossovers would be high!

How about lower pricing for Owners Club members and a maximum number of driver purchases based on what products you own?

That's a good point, Mark.

Another problem would be incorrect installation, particularily where crossovers are involved...a simple wiring mistake could prove costly.

You do know that Dayton drivers at parts express which are sold for a 3rd of the cost at what Axiom is selling "look" the same that are used on the ti and v2 versions. If one wanted to "white van" v1/v2 Axiom speakers there always have been avenues to do that.

Hey, I'm just offering my opinion, just like you're offering yours.

Horse, I think you've beaten this house to death.

Yes, but by your last response its obvious you can't accept different opinions.

Wow, I know I haven't been around as much as I was before, but am I one of the few that is still totally satisfied with the purchase I made several years ago?
I can understand how some people who recently ordered may be a bit disappointed that they may have missed out on getting the latest and the greatest, but are the changes that dramatic that an ordinary person like myself would even notice the difference?
Sure, I still get upgradeitis and I'm sure in the near future I'll add the VP180, but I'm not going to worry if it's version 3 or 10, I think I'll just enjoy the Axiom sound that has kept most of us happy for many years.

I'm with Michael.

Sovkiller and Dr. House, besides obviously wanting someone to agree with your negative opinions, is there something that you are trying to accomplish?

If you think an item in the marketplace is too expensive, don't buy it.

There, I fixed it.
