I love the new look, but then again I think the new Camaro needs 2" sectioned out of it's beltline and 2" added to the roofline.

Back on topic HOW DOES IT SOUND? Anyone?
(I'm impressed, replying before I even posted)

and

Due to it's size are you having any problems fitting it into your home theatre?

As for me I'm still waiting for the VP160 \:\)

Moving on from the dust cap colour controversy...





So as for the speaker...this thing is LARGE...can you guess the size of my TV? It's also heavy and hurts when it slips out of your hands and hits you in the foot because you need to save it from hitting the floor...maybe they could put some inserted handles on the side like my Plasma has on the back...as for sound in my limited listening so far it seems to match up pretty well with the 80's and dialouge is crystal clear. Will do some music listening later on.

Very happy with the magnetic grill, the dustcap colour and the finish. Good job Axiom, another winner, winner, chicken dinner!!!



great, the first review of one of the new owners on the axiom site, and another positive one. that thing looks great too. you are the second one that i have seen and they are both black, i'll gather that is a popular color the obvious answer is you all wanted to match existing black fronts!
glad to hear you like what you have heard so far and i/we awaite your musical first impression. one question, is the measurement of the speaker length actually 39.5" exactly and also, did yours ship in a M80 box like my friends did?

M80 box and exactly 39.5 inches wide. It did come with a very nice glossy colour instruction manual, rubber feet and spikes.

thank you so much, again, it looks great, i can only imagine it's sound! hopefully, i about a month i'll have my own and a pair of M80's to match too!

I'll be driving mine with my emotiva XPA-5 amp @ 300wpc 4 ohms continuous via my 5507 pre-amp, what you have driving yours, do you think it's enough power or do you think you need more, i know they have a high sensitivity rating?(91+) I know that XPA-5 is plenty!

I am using an ATI 1506 in bridged mode(3 X 450 bridged) for the front 3 channels with my Denon 3808CI as a preamp. I'm sure your amp is plenty powerful for that setup.

Bridged, with a 4 ohm load? That's one hell of an amp.

And that is 450 watts into 8 ohms. It's built like a tank.

I'm surprised there's not a warning on the amp using it in bridged mode with speakers less than 8ohm.
