Hello,

I haven't been on for a long time, I didn't really have much to add...until now. Axiom's new speakers with the rear facing drivers (the 1100's) will be quite the upgrade. I, however...could not wait to try them. Sooooo, I just got (from a new hybrid speaker mfg) my new "Backfire bolt-on" rear driver set. These blow away any speaker without them! They are on the web at: www.Backfirebolton.com

They are easy to mount...you just drill 10 holes on top of your mains, and connect them to the crossover with the provided connectors. I will add a picture of my set mounted to my M60s for all to see...plus, they perfectly match the original factory finish of your mains. Thanks, and check them out!

I'm glad you're happy with the new purchase.

Is the front sound stage more enveloping? What about the dynamics of the sound coming from L/R speakers?

I think that they are only for sale today. Better get on to the site, or dial their number: 877-IMA-FOOL
