Craig, welcome and thanks for this interesting shoot out. I've read your posts elswhere with much interest, especially the shoot out and you are partially responsible for me discovering the world of good LFE (SVS 20-39 PCi).

What are your thoughts on the Axiom subs? The questuion comes up alot here.

OH OH! Don't trust this Craigsub bum.. He doesn't know what he's talking about.

Craig is a regular over at the av123 forum, as well as many others, and I just wanted to live up to our reputation over there.

I've followed Craig's work from nasty attacks on the HSU forum (Curtis, keep away from your keyboard ); through an agonizingly painful thread at the AVS forum (how he stood it, I'll never know); to an informative and educational experience over at the HomeTheaterSpot. For those who are unaware, he has been conducting shootouts between a number of subwoofer makes and models.

Keeping in mind that there is no such thing as a completely unbiased opinion, NOBODY could do a better job than Craig has done, and under very difficult circumstances. He has been accused of being a shill for various companies, but I've yet to see any hard evidence to prove those accusations. If he is a shill, he's got me fooled. (of course, I'm easily fooled)

I cannot speak for anyone else here at the forum, and I certainly can't speak for Axiom, but I'd love it if Craig would do some comparisons of Axioms and Rockets.

You may notice that he types in kind of a high, shrill voice (witness "hee hee" rather than "hah hah") That's what happens when you carry around 250 pound subwoofers a lot. And he's a relatively old guy, too.

Keep us posted please, Craig. And please stick around and comment. You would be a welcome addition here.

I think it was the one on eCoustics.com. Nice review (must have read it about 10 times) although it didn't really make my sub decision this week that much easier!

Yeah that has review has nothing to do with Craigsub.

But, read some of it anyway. Holy Cats! And the folks over at av123 think WE have a vitriolic forum. Whew! 'Scuse me. I gotta go put out my clothing which is in flames.

craig, after the comparisons, you might need to change your handle to "craigbooks"

so where can I find craigsub's review? I just spent an agonizing 2 weeks trying to decide which sub to buy. My Axiom's might arrive today (fedex has them on the truck) so I am anxious to get it all together. The sub I ordered (Outlaw LM-1, designed with help from Dr. Hsu), OTOH, is gonna be another week
