Hi,

Thanks, but I think I've been getting too much sun lolling about up here at Axiom.

I just took a ruler to the Axiom M80s, and the 6.5-inch woofers measure exactly that to the outer edge of the metal basket. So do the 5.25-inch midrange drivers. So ignore my comments about woofer diameter extending to the edge of the surround material.

Regards,

Alan

I miss Jack and his supply of raspberry icons. \:\)

Thanks for the response Alan!

I'm just looking to put something cheap in my workshop, and these were in use daily in my studio until I heard some woofer farts a month ago and pulled off the grill covers to notice the foam. They weren't, and in a workshop certainly won't ever be, for critical listening.

Of course, this still leaves me unsure of replacement sizing. I wrote to PartsExpress 3 days ago, but no one has written back.

Well, what are the diameters that you see? It's more likely a 10" woofer than an 11", or a 12" instead of an 11". And certainly much more likely a 10" than an 8.5".

It's not that easy.

I'm good. I'll wait to hear back from Parts Express or I'll just call them...

You could always buy more than one and return whatever doesn't fit.

I am shocked that they don't have a screw hole spec in there somewhere. That has seemed to me to be the key measurement. Everything else should fall into place after that, right?

I went slummin' and bought a pair of these:


They were on sale at Circuit City for 1/3 off & they are way louder than I could ever stand... therefore meeting both my criteria.

Surprisingly, though, they really are NOT bad sounding at all. As a matter of fact, they sound pretty damn good!

My old D/A's are just gonna go out in the trash tomorrow.....

I hope you washed your hands before going near the keyboard! Goodness knows what you picked up slumming. Why, next thing you know, Ken or J.P. could be at Wallyworld buying an HTIB. \:o

That's it, you're banned.







Oh wait, I can't ban people. Crap.
