minicone: my friend, I'm afraid that you have gone into the hen house and asked the fox how many chickens there are. LOL!!!
Sure, the Axiom speakers are good speakers, just like many others but that doesn't answer your question.
The best advice that I could give is see if you can audition some at a "friends" house somewhere near you.
If that won't work, you could always purchase a set and if you don't like them, return them.
Best of luck and a very Happy New Year!!!
