Ray, Thanks for the nice words... when I mentioned the M60's against B&M speakers, that was not a typo... it stands for Brick and Mortar... as in the usual stuff you see in a stereo store...

And one thing I try to do is have fun with thus stuff... the low cost items are more fun to test than the big buck gear... I just got a Hsu STF-1 in for testing... $299 subwoofer. Early listening says it is pretty decent...

I appreciate everyone making me feel welcome...

Craig.
Everyone is always heartily welcomed, unless of course you call Axiom's tinny in your first post (or something to that effect). ...(they use aluminum drivers...get it?)
Ok bad (and old) joke.

Welcome to the Axiom forums.

I have told worse jokes than that today... I did get a message from Mark Schifter, the ELT Cse's are a 4 driver three way bookshelf... I don't have the msrp yet... but will by mid-week.

Hey Craig,

Try to get specs, too, such as frequency response.

Forgive my lack of technical expertise, but doesn't a 4 driver, 3 way speaker have an inherent advantage over a 3 driver, 2 way speaker?

Gets kinda quiet around her on the weekends, don't it?

Hope your boy, und der frau, are doing well. I think about him now and then, and wish him well. Happy Easter!

"Oh... and AVS actually deleted the thread where Marko and Tony went at it... and no, Marko has not gotten to the SPot... THAT would be interesting...."

Hey Craig:

Actually Paul banned him when he was Bob after about 3 posts. It was as they say, swift and onerous action.

Paul has little tolerance for Bob's type. BTW, have you noticed he's been away from AVS for a week. I think he gets banned on a week by week basis.

Jack, Actually, in an inexpensive speaker, in many cases the two way has the advantage, the crossover is a much simpler animal. I was surprised to see it would be a 3 way.

I wil be able to post frequency response sweeps, and a lot of other data, too. The TrueRTA software I bought is pretty good...

Tony... I did notice Marko was missing... I actually feel kinda sorry for him... If I run into him again, I may arrange a field trip to a singles bar... and show him what girls are...

It just occured to me that the above statement is a tad ambiguous. It referred to how well your son is doing, which is indeed good news.
