Yeah, they look really cool. Anyone notice that the Impact is now a dual-cone isobaric design? (not that they're using the names, apparently... ;\) )

I like the look of the amp. Nicely done, Axiom!

I think the isobaric architecture is perfect for this application. I'm looking forward to tight, accurate bass out of this puppy! I need to see a picture and dimensions of the sub though and also understand the sub's power requirements.

We no longer have to be penalized for listening through our PCs and iPods...well, we don't have to be penalized as much as before anyway \:\) .

So say I want to connect a CD player to the back. How do I do it?

That's what's nice about a good set of headphones for the pc. I don't feel like that at all

Presumably through the minijack.

Yes, apparently there is an adaptor that you can buy to convert left and right to a mini-jack.

So the sub, since it's passive, is like a third driver. We need to know how efficient the sub is.

I agree with headphones if you're sitting right at the PC. Even then, you just can't get the bass out of them and even with good ones, I personally don't like the sound field. But I'd take headphones over the speakers I have now.

Wait... the sub's passive? That's kind of surprising. I thought it was going to be powered.

Well, it's powered from the desk amp, so that means that it gets 55 watts, apparently. Hmm. Pretty good frequency response for a 6.5" sub, too.

Also, I currently use one of our iPods with the M80s. Those are pretty good...

I hope it doesn't "get 55W". Then there'd be nothing left for the audiobytes themselves. That's why we need to know the sub's sensitivity. Ian or Tom, please help us.

I believe it was a tremendously good decision to go with a passive sub for this application. Otherwise, the value sell would have been a very difficult proposition. Those that want more bass can buy another sub from the powered family. And it has a sub out too!

The features and pricing were very well thought out. And I am sure it will sound tremendous too.
