Ian, thanks for clarifying the point relative to the ground plane measurements. As my previous reply indicated, I was disappointed that, from Gene's discussion, Axiom had apparently taken a technically dubious position. Your comment here shows that this wasn't in fact the situation and now my disappointment is entirely with Gene in writing what was at best an ambiguous comment on the point.

Thanks for chiming in on this, Ian. While there seems to be much more under the surface of this story, it's no one's business other than those directly involved (which does not include 99% of the people on any of the forums). I've just received my EP600 today and will (hopefully) enjoy it no matter what anyone on any forum has to say - it arrived as I started an 19 shift at work... literally and metaphorically the longest workday of my life. Those showing loyalty (blind or otherwise) do so for a reason. Those who joined in the nay-saying, well... that's another story. People are too easily swayed and that can be very damaging. Apparently, so can Purolator (but that's that's yet another story and my battle - my wife called to tell me that she could touch the speaker without taking what's left of the box off of it). Happy surfing all and watch out for those trolls!

Thanks, Chess, for making me aware of the usage of "method" vs. "methodology." I'm not being sarcastic.

Charles, I used "technique" rather than either of them, thank God.

Ian - It's been quite some time since I posted here. After reading your copy/paste of what you ACTUALLY SAID to the folks at Audioholics, I was shocked.

The case was made quite clearly that you refused to participate in a GP test over a 4 pi test.

It's pretty clear that you did NOT say this. Once again, you are shown to be one of the white hats in this industry/hobby.

The irony of all this: The best place to do an ultimate subwoofer shootout would be using your test gear, including the 90 foot crane.

Your clarification of this issue is not only appreciated, it is needed.

Thanks Ian for the response and further clarification. With all this, unfortunately, for a few, the assumption is automatically made that because a company refuses to take part in such a process, the results could make the product look inferior to others.

Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth, otherwise Axiom wouldn't be celebrating their 30th anniversary this year.
