Ummm, your like only 2hrs or less from the Axiom plant, I know where I would go audition. You will get the opportunity to go on a tour as well, meet the awesome people at Axiom, and listen to any speaker you want. If I was not 15hours away, that is what I would have done. \:\)

Brandon, welcome. If you look at the list in the audition thread above you'll see several possibilities in the Toronto area. The usual procedure is to try to make direct contact by way of PMs. The list isn't completely current and some of those listed might not participate at this time.

Another possibility, which several living in your area have taken advantage of, is a trip up to Dwight for a listen and tour of Axiom headquarters.

Don't forget to factor in the time it takes to get a passport if you don't already have one.

Brandon. Do directly to Axiom. Do not pass go. Do not collect... well, maybe you should collect a little cash on the way for those M80s. ;\)

A visit to Axiom with your favourite music and movie scenes will allow you to do direct a/b comparisons and decide which speaker is best for you.

I would probably recommend it, just so you don't drop in sometime when everyone is in the middle of something. I'd call to see what they recommend!

I'm only ~600 miles / 11 hours away, according to Google . That's 7 hours to the border, and then 4 hours to Dwight.

Road trip!

I smile, laugh out loud actually, every time someone comes over to play Rock Band and unknowingly chooses the "Lords of the Underworld" song, AKA South Park characters, and someone has to try to sing along to the lyrics of Timmy sreaming out his name over and over again in about a hundred variations.
