Axiom's got a v2 cabinet in stock so if the drivers work, I should be ok.

That's what I did and would also recommend to others.

You could buy my vp150 from the auction and use it in the place of the QS8

Hope your drivers are ok! Does the v2 cabinets in stock already have the v2 crossover glued in? That sounds like the easiest fix if your drivers survived.

Sorry for your bad luck Ken.

Having previously had a close look at my M22 XO's I would be surprised if your QS8 XO didn't survive; well as long as one of the driver cages didn't hit it upon impact.

I would be surprised if the cabinet has the crossover in it unless you asked for it. It would be another piece required to purchase seperately just like the drivers or the rear speaker connection plate, well the XO might come with the plate as it is glued onto it.

Nope, they found one of those, so I should be good to go, assuming the drivers are ok. There were some tiny chips out of the shielding magnets on one woofer, but I'm not stressing on that.

For some reason your last sentence there was heard in my head in the voice of Scotty from Star Trek and I keep waiting for the "but...'something else is broken and doom is immanent'!!" line.

Well, at some point it becomes more expensive to fix it, but we'll see how far I get. Worst case, I have some spare woofers and tweeters for my other speakers and I spend $290 for a replacement Q.
