Sigh, how quickly my life long works have been forgotten.

Well, Ok, a few months work.

Alright, alright, so really just a few occasional minutes spread over a few months.

Some photos of the M80v2

















The glue is fine here as it's normal to have some spills... This is the right speaker... I'll open the left to show the shocking mess of glue tomorrow night in that speakers cabinet and the gap I was talking about.

I also want to get straight this isn't my home LOL... It's my BACHELOR uncle's house and as you can see he's a slob and his weekly house keeper missed a week! ROTFL… A tear actually comes to my eye to see the greasy fingers on the A1400-8 but hey… it’s his gear not mine!

PS That Denon AVR-4306 is soon to be replaced with an Emotiva UMC-1

I'm also curious how many other speakers on the market have a woofer/tweeter arrangement such as the M80 ?

OK WOW,

I just placed the speakers on top of milk crates to get them of the floor a foot and man what a difference. In doing wet-wear testing of off axis performance. I couldn't help but notice the vertical axis tonal shift this speaker has. The speaker sounds best at about 1.75-2.5 feet from the floor without being raised. I could be nuts here but I suggest you guys give them a listen whilst in the lotus position sitting on the floor. LOL Thus the milk crates..

PS I can't believe the tonal change on the vertical axis... bring them up a foot to a foot and a half really changes the sound for the better... IMHO

Obsessing much?

BTW so far you haven’t said anything new. It’s all been covered in various threads around the internet including some here. I posted the milk crate thing a couple years ago.

Cheers

Boy what a friendly forum! I've now been called names, a liar and been accused of being obsessive with little provocation.

PS No argument from me that the Skiing Ninja is a jerk and that review was bias. Some of this points were valid though and can't be ignored.

Geez fellas, realax a little will ya!!

You're right, the glue is not a big deal. I'm a little surprised at the gap because theses things are cnc cut, but shit happens sometimes. If your uncle is concerned, he should contact Axiom directly. They will take care of him.

Axiom is a quality company and these are quality speakers. They are, however production line speakers, not custom shop built for $10k, so you get less than perfection.

I'm willing to be you will see similar things in any speaker in this price range.

The Ninja is still full of crap.

What is it you want??? If you have problems with your purchase i would take it up with axiom. This is meerly a forum of like minded people who own axioms,not a place to rant and rave. You dont like your purchase,thats is fine by me.Lots of people do like these speakers.This is why axiom has a 30 day no quible refund policy. I dont have any M80's myself but if i did ,i would have read reviews and done some research and then if i didnt like them i would make the return. Ranting here may give you a bit of relief but honestly i personally dont care.Im sure it would please everyone here if you just dealt with this and then let it go. I for one am well aware that these are not ultra hight end big dollar speakers nor did i pay that for them. What they are , are damn good speakers for a really affordable price.I personally feel i got good value for the money i spent ,yes i could have spent more but i like other things as well and not everyone has a money tree. To wit,im sure the folks at axiom would be more than happy to work with you and your obvious dissatisfaction.

Peace

SolidState,

You really don't deserve the treatment you've been getting from some. I won't apologize on their behalf -- that's their call -- but many of us take our Axioms seriously. When you mentioned the flaws you discovered last week, it did sound a bit like you were making stuff up, but now that you've backed up the claims with very clear pictures, I can't see why anyone is holding anything against you.
