How can they post test results for only certain subwoofers for certain tests. Seems like they are picking-and-choosing their subjects and tests again.

Of course, there is the known Audioholics hatred of Axiom too.

Nobody even mentioned Axiom in that thread. Other than some numbers for ep400, 500, 600 in a spreadsheet.

Right. The spreadsheet info is lacking full test results.

If you could just sneak the phrase "rat's ass" in there somewhere, I think you'd just about have my considered opinion on all things Audioholics.

The OP has 3 Axiom subwoofers. OP seems to be a good Axiom customer.

I have to agree, I don't think the OP meant any harm with his question.

I think it is fairly well known Axiom's subs do not appear to test well with ground plane tests, at least any of the ones I have read about, but none the less they sure sound good good to me and that should be the real deciding factor how one sounds to the listener.

It seems to me that in these tests too much emphasis is placed on high output, more specifically, max output playback, something that virtually never happens.

i just found it so strange that something that sounds so good to my ears measure so bad. and as you see in my sig, i have tried others. i still haven't heard another sub with the same warmth and texture, save for probably fathoms.

And you have had some very good subs; those eD's and the Velo always get great reviews.
