Hey, can anyone on this Forum tell me about this Website? I stumbled across it yesterday. It seems to be a Company that modifies speakers. But, the article/review of the Axiom M80v3 that I read was not very positive.
They described the M80 speakers as not being worth investing the time/money to modify.
Wow, I didn't know my hearing was so bad that I couildn't hear the poor quality for myself.


My bad, it's called Skiing Ninja
thanks
Jeff

Oh lord, I thought we'd buried that stinking corpse of a dead horse.

Do a search on the forums if you want more info.

the guy was frustrated that Axiom tested his x-over and they found it was not as good as the built-in one. so Axiom refused to use that "custom" x-over.

I think he is called Sean Parque. He used to work AV123. Last time I heard, he was trying to make a living "upgrading" various types of speakers with "better" crossovers, damping, etc.

He has a $329 power cable for sale on his website.

He's an Axiom hater, for sure.

For my own part, I met him at an Audioholics GTG in Oregon a couple years ago and tried to personally apologize for past transgressions. He totally blew me off.

I think Skiing Ninja is (another) audio snake oil boutique.

This guy seems to be a 'Legend in his own Mind'.

Unfortunately this kind of crap remains on the net forever & keeps being dredged up over & over. Sad actually, as it can be very damaging to individuals & companies alike - one of the negative aspects of the net...

Sounds like you guys have summed it up very well for those of us not in the know.

Tom, there's nothing like a personal meeting to confirm our online impressions, eh?

Interesting side-story, Tom. Too bad he didn't show the same class you extended to him.

The dumb ass ninja has no clue what he is talking about, or the design of a crossover for that matter. If you read reviews from reputable Audio Review websites or magezines you will find countless positive reviews of Axiom products going back to the beginning, 30yrs, long before skiing jumbotron was born.
