The depressing thing is that all this tweaking has done is "get the room out of the way" so the speakers can work as designed. Probably would have been easier to haul everything out in a field and listen there.

if they were DVD's I'd suggest rip them to remove the region code and re-record them back to DVD. far cheaper solution.

The power amplifier in my EP500 v2 failed a couple of months ago, so rather than replacing the amplifier, the nice folks at Axiom let me trade up to an EP500 v4. If you're like me and primarily listen to music, you will be enthralled by the EP500 v4,

Looks great. Sounds like the system is really coming together. Until I saw that pic I had forgotten how deep M80s are.

So after the M80 big hole unboxing drama, I hooked up my new M80 v4 High Powers, and they're sounding mighty fine. image url upload But stepping back a ways, I've owned the M80v3s since Nov 2011, and have been kicking myself recently b/c I didn

Here's one of the new babies alongside her playmates. The new M80s complete my sound room upgrade, hopefully for a long while. More details in the larger M80 thread... image url upload

Truth is, I'd rather replace the driver than deal with shipping the speaker back because of damage to the cabinet / vinyl / veneer. Glad the speaker is OK! The double-boxing system that Axiom uses seems to be pretty effective at letting the speaker

Yep - whatever punched through the box went through the cardboard, past the foam blocks, through the plastic bag speaker cover, then through the actual magnetically attached speaker grill. There is a 2mm x 3mm hole in the grill. Thinking of how

It's always a shock how much abuse the shippers manage to apply. IIRC one of my M60s arrived like that -- one box looked like it had been used for sword and club practice while the other was pristine, like it had been carried from Dwight by angels.

I was wondering about the same thing yesterday -- whether the huge differences in sound quality I see from changing speaker placement or room treatment were typical, or (and you guys said it much more nicely) I was just wierd. I went 5 years or mor

Yep, I emailed Debbie / Brent as well. At minimum, I need new boxes, these are trashed. Besides the holes, they're just all beat up and soft. The speakers are singing, they sound fine. More than fine. I need to post impressions on the larger M80

I would still notify Axiom, they have a Fed Ex Rep they can contact for review. I had to do the same back when Fed Ex ran over my EP500 replacment amp crate with a jet.

Received my upgraded M80v4 High Power speakers today. yeah! WAIT, WHAT?!? HOLES?! I can directly feel the speakers, a few of the holes went between the foam blocks mounted on cardboard. ... 1/2 hour later, unboxing, mumbling, cursing whew.

I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer and I admit it went over my head initially. But I have read enough of your posts here to know there had to be more to it. Good one btw.
