I am condidering the purchase of the m-80 system for HT. Does axiom have additional technical data on this line of speaker I could review ? I an interested in construction detail as well as performance info. Additionally I am unclear on the impedance 4 vs 8 ohms issue and how this relates to performance with a given amplifier.

If you would like to e-mail or fax us your address and a list of the technical data you are looking for, we would be happy to send it to you. The lower impedance presents the amplifier with less of a load and thusly allows it to send more power to the speaker at any given volume level. Assuming the amplifier circuitry can accept the lower load the speaker will play louder at each volume level and if the amplifier has good dynamic head room this will result in more overall useful output. If the amplifier does not have good dynamic head room then the overall maximum output without clipping will be the same but it will be achieved at a lower volume knob setting.
