They come back to life!

All I will say right now is they are reasonably easy to install and it is a very tight fit in the cabinet. I had fun installing them. Pictures to follow when I get home in the wee hours of the morning.

Mmm...AVS anyone?

I'd be interested in getting them regardless of my volatile and unpredictable income/savings level.

I'm going home at the end of the month...may order them. From a guy who will ALWAYS be using the M22's at a desk (floorstanders not an option), this is a pretty good option if its a noticeable upgrade. I wouldn't mind if the M22's had more of a warm presentation as a result of the crossover.

And hey...it might stop my current addiction with my headphones (I'm actually doing a software engineering/programming project about comparing audio between headphones...it's permeating my thought)...

Ok bye.

I'll be eager to hear your impressions, Jake. Thanks for doing this.

I'd like to make a few points before Jake shares his thoughts. I feel they are pertinent regardless of what, positive or negative, Jake has to say.

Jake will be giving us his opinion. Nothing more, but nothing less. His perceptions don't mean that you or I would feel the same.

I like, respect, and admire (1) the Colquhouns and eveyone at Axiom, (2) the way they do business, and (3) the product they bring to market. I feel they provide one of the best values in audio. But, we all know that there are those who don't care for the Axiom sound. I don't have a problem with that. The same can be said about virtually every speaker in existence. However, I do have a problem when, in order to justify their opinion, they feel it necessary to characterize the product as "crap." We all know that is nonsense.

I have no idea how Jake will feel about the Ninja crossovers. But, I humbly request that we treat his opinions with respect and don't allow this to degenerate into unnecessary bickering.

Thanks again, Jake.

Not sure we would do that to Jake, we all know him to be valid. ;\)

Thanks again, Jake.

and as always I will put forth the approach that unless these subjective observations are performed under objective controlled circumstances they will ultimately still mean very little

blind and randomly switched tests with level matched speakers is required to even answered the basic question, is there an audible difference?
after THAT one can then ask which version you may think sounds better

you have to answer A before you can answer B or one's brain will subconsciously think there is a difference before the test even begins. it has nothing to do with how honest a person is or not.

maybe axiom should consider starting to sell ABX switchers for the budding home enthusiasts

I do not think anyone here on this forum called his product crap. The same can't be said about them about Axiom. Sorry just had to point that out.
