The only bipole's I've ever used or heard have front/rear that depending if your going side or rear you turn the speaker to give you the difuse sound, they don't include tweeters or have top/bottom firing woofer all in phase with the tweeters, so to me that is different, not a twist of words.

That actually sounds really bad, or good, depending on your bedroom tastes.

Hi John, I am currently in moving mode, new home!!!, but in a week or 2 I should be able to give you an audition of M22s, M80s, VP100 and 150 and the QS8s. My sub is an SVS PB13 Ultra. Maybe if the timing is right the 3 of us could get together for an afternoon \:\)


That sounds great jakewash! I leave for sunny orlando on the 15th and don't get back until the 29th so before or after that would be great for me. Congrat's on the new home, we are getting into basement development mode to quell our itch for new home mode!

Thank you for your willingness to help out complete strangers, it's appreciated.

It's not about twisting words it's about being understood and how one's
comments are perceived. Telling someone that a speaker is "quadpole" is
meaningless w/o a common understanding of the term. Had you linked to
Axiom's explanation in the first post I would have had nothing to say about
it.

Since the term "quadpole" (IMO Axiom marketing jargon) is largely unknown in
the audio lexicon, people invariably ask what it means. I have seen this
happen in several posts on other forums where a happy Axiom owner recommends
their "quadpole" speakers to which someone invariably asks WTF is that. In
each case the Axiom owner couldn't or didn't explain the details of the
design and ended up looking like an uninformed fanboy who bought their
speakers based on a marketing slogan and not any real understanding of the
design and why it works so well.

While I care less how any individual is perceived I do care about how Axiom
owners represent our community especially on other forums. Unknowing
owners repeating marketing slogans simply feeds the impression some other
brand's owners would like to spread about Axiom being a poor performing
marketing driven brand. So instead of a quick quip, how about we help
educated new forum members so they can better represent the Axiom community.
