Jesus, if they reproduce 11.7 Hz, I'm interested in buying them!

Charles, your killing me \:D

Really, I'm not surprised Katrina improves Bose speakers, what with the "Wave" technology and all that.

I love the BS meter......
I need one of those for work....

Constantly being fed a healthy diet of the stuff.....nice to know how saturated i am getting.

Thanks for all the input....
I knew this thread would get a lot of attention.

By the way....the speakers sound amazing....replaced an older Onkyo HTIB fronts.
Obviously no comparison.....

Good quality and seriously good sounding Axiom speakers.....Like no other.... for the price that is \:\)

Another vote for "no break-in required". It's a fair question - anything with mating metal surfaces still seems to benefit from some kind of gentle break-in period - but speakers don't really have any such surfaces to break in. The cone and voice coil are suspended by elastic components (surround / spider) and I haven't found anyone who claims that the properties of those components change appreciably in the first hours of use.

If the new speakers have a significantly different sound from your previous ones then it will take some time for that sound to seem "natural" to you, and if your family is used to action movies being played quietly there will be a break-in period there as well ;\)

RickF, thanks for what was by FAR the best laugh of the day.

I have so many uses for that graphic, you have no idea...

Oh, and FWIW, +1 for no break in required. Total myth.

Greg, welcome. I've got over 20,000 hours in the last 7 1/2 years on my M22s and they still haven't changed. So, if there's a break-in period it must be rather long. Enjoy the great sound.

7 1/2 year M22 review: classical music still sounds great on the M22s. "Upgrade"(neither music nor speakers)not needed.
