But not being hung on the wall.



Sigh.

Anyone have any guesses on how well a late model QS8v2 would pair with a QS8v3? (I know, take my own advice and call Axiom....)

I don't want to spend the money to buy a new pair.

I'm sorry for the broken up speaker, but I gotta say....that was pretty damn funny.

PS For surrounds, I can't imagine there would be that much difference.

I should probably pick it up off the floor and see if any of the drivers are salvageable. Sigh. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Ken, i would tell you to inspect the drivers ect. if all the drivers and crossover are good, just order a new cabinet, and transfer the drivers to the new cabinet. i am sure if you e-mail Brent your photo, he will be more than happy to sell you a new cabinet. This way you can keep the same drivers/crossover while reducing your replacement cost....

Or just order a couple new drivers and use the existing crossover. i am sure you can come up with something that will reduce the replacement cost.

Or just send it to Mark. I'm sure he has some ginormous tool in his shop that can fix that.

Everything appears to be intact, but the crossover is glued to the inside of the cab--not sure how easy it would be to remove it. Worth ordering an empty cab with crossover, though, if Axiom'll do that.

Yeah, I'm sure they keep a bunch of v2 QS8 crossovers just laying around.

Right.

You didn't even TRY duct tape, did you?

ken, find out if the crossover is attached with hot glue or epoxy, if it's hot glue you can use a heat gun to melt the glue to pull the crossover for reuse.

This is all my fault. I was over on Thanksgiving and saw that the QS8s were mounted. I probably cursed one when I asked Ken if he had any trouble getting them to hook properly into the brackets.
