I haven't read all of this post but I did read the one on Audioholics. I heard of Axiom by Audioholic and I don't think Gene has ever bashed Axiom but has only said good things about them. If Axiom doesn't want to be apart of a shootout then so be it, there is some good subs in there and I can't wait to read about it.

Axiom is the only one with a tower AFIK. Again we assumed they are talking about Axiom due to this point. Maybe we are wrong and Axiom isn't the only one with a tower, so those comments are not directed at Axiom.

I find it hard to believe that article was about Axiom.

Just look at their coverage on Audioholics:

EP 500 Review:
http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/speakers/subwoofers/axiom-ep500

Epic 80-60 Review:
http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/speakers/floorstanding/axiom-audio-epic-80-600

I bought this system b/c of this review!

It puzzles me that Axiom would think their sub wouldn't get a fair review from them.

I also did an internet search and couldn't find a single EP800 review with quantifiable measurements. All of the reviews I read so far have been powder puff at best. What is the deal with that?

It's very plausible that manufacturers either don't want to make the investment in a 90+ft tower or are unable to because of their location which requires no outside noise, wind ect. Obviously the companies that are located in any urbanized area would have to do their testing elsewhere. Maybe this is why they came up with other testing procedures....a 90ft cubed anechoic chambre could get a little expensive.

I presonally don't care too much what any of the subs sound like from a 90 foot tower!

It's for testing purposes. Do you sit in an anechoic chambre when you listen to your speakers?
