Or, placed immediately side-by-side, so as to not have the compromised horizontal dispersion of an M60(or M80) on its side.

We tried that in #7 but I didn't like it.

I believe John means to have them running in parallel, as we did with the M22/M60 and when we had the M60 on top of the M80, we never did run them in parrallel while side by side...DOH! I guess we just have to get together one more time to try it this way.

I would really love to do an EP500 EP600 shootout. Depending on the room size, I really do not think there will be that much difference.

After reading the review again, I suspect (with high hopes) that Axiom is already on the path of introducing another tower speaker with 3 5.25" woofers, 2 6.5" woofers, and 2 tweeters. I would HAVE to buy that tower if they made it, just sounds too crisp to be true!

I think room size does make a difference. Although they are close in specs, I noticed a fairly good difference between the two in my larger room...

I agree that room size makes a big difference, the trick is determining that magic room size number that will benefit the use of an EP600.

Actually the very last thing we did was run the 60s and 80s in parallel. But you didn't listen...only I did. I didn't like it because it sounded like 4 waterfalls instead of 2. The centre image was wonderful but all of the other images (birds chirping, etc) were smeared. But sure...I'm game for trying it again.

BTW, in November I get to hear an Orion. I'm really anxious to see how this will sound compared to the Axioms.

I listened to floor-standing and bookshelf Missions today. I don't know the model number (but I am going to find out) but they sounded absolutely horrible. Highs were non-existent, mids were recessed so bad that they were almost not there and the bass sounded muffled like it was coming from another room.

Sure, Jason and Tex; they'd have to be run simultaneously in parallel to create a horizontal M140 to compare to the vertical M140.

Awesome. I'll be very interested in your thoughts.
