Just wondering if the subwoofers are also wedged internally to counter the resonance??

Loc: It's all about the location.
The new proportions look much better on the latest prototype VP160, imo.

Sarang, Steve tells me I'm not understanding your question so I had better clarify . . . are you asking if the subs have bracing, or if they have the same wedge shape as the bookshelf, floorstanding and center channel speakers?

Amie, what I meant to ask was that contrary to the wedge shape of the floorstanders, center channels and bookshelf speakers, axiom subwoofers do not have anti-standing wave enclosure design (wedge shape) to counter the resonances. Are the resonances eliminated by some other means in the subwoofers?

Sarang, the EP600 and EP800 DO have the ASW cabinets. I see what you mean about the others, though.

My guess is, like a good bran muffin, the LF just passes right through it. No shaping necessary. The box is sized to control air pressure.

I give! You rule! You squeezed a scat reference into a tech thread. Brilliant!

Sarang,

Since the subwoofers are only producing very long wave lengths it mitigates the need for the anti-symmetrical cabinet design. There could be aesthetic reasons for following the same design though.

Roh-rooh . . . how do I unban someone? Apologies to Fred!

Oh sure, ban a guy while he's off for dental surgery.

No Bob, I did not have the surgery at Canadian tire after drinking 4 Timmies as anesthetics.
