I got you covered Ken ... since everybody seems to be engrossed with the color of the dust covers, I'll PM you my personal impression of how the speaker sounds with the rest of the system, whenever they arrive.

Ian, y'all can paint my dust covers florescent orange as far as I'm concerned ... just don't let 'em be cracked.


i for one am not "engrossed" with anything. or else i wouldn't own the EPIC 60-500.

you guys seem to be a click here on this forum " i'll pm you" lol. i'll leave you to it. if anyone ever asks me about speakers i'll never hesitate to recommend axiom. no matter what they look like.

my only point has been that with the new look comes new customers. and its a great idea.

alot of people get turned off by the old look. and i can send a message to ian too.

blessings to you and your company. brace yourself for a great rest of the year and a stellar next one.

wow, i'm waiting to hear from the fortunate few who got to order their centers first, receive them first now i'm reading that the info is gonna be pm'd to certain people about their thoughts of the speaker and how it sounds. and this is because some folks say they don't necessarily like the look of the new driver. this is terrible. i can't believe this is going on here. i thought this was supposed to be the axiom site where axiom folks got together and had a good time about, well, axiom. i guess i was mistaken.

i do hope someone else who is lucky enough to have gotten one of these, please post a review of the speaker, please and if it will help, please again.

Guys lighten up ... I'm kidding.

I haven't received mine yet but when I do I'll certainly post my impressions here on the board.

That way we all get to be in the 'click'!

Freaking trouble maker. I can't believe no one has bought me a VP180, this chit is not fair.

I'm under the impression RickF is just joking around about the whole PM thing.

As to opinions on the dust cap et al, well that is just life and if everyone agreed on every little matter discussions wouldn't be very productive and life would just get boring.

I think we can all agree that Axiom makes a terrific product and I expect nothing but great things about the VP180.

i have no doubt that they have made a good product in the vp180, just want to hear from some owners.

i am also fine about the color of the drivers on the vp180 too. at first i thought that it was going to look funny with the vp180 having one color drivers and the M80's (i'm gonna order those too) would have different color drivers.

axiom has spoke out that all their drivers will now have the same color and match (now that doesn't help folks who already own axioms and want them to match, i'm not sure what the company is going to do for them)so, since they (the three fronts i want) will match, it's no longer a deal for me.

the biggest and most important thing to me is how do those who have it like it. over the past 2 days i have seen here and over at other forums people who have received the speaker and as of yet, no one has given that first impression review; and no i don't count "it's nice and i like the way it sounds" as a first impression or a review! but that is the only thing i saw someone say about it and that was sad!

again, i'm hoping to hear something of substance and depth about the new flagship center over the coarse of the weekend. it will only help the sales and the desire to want one and to further add to the interest of potential new customers to the axiom family; like myself!

i just read my first review over at blu-ray.com forum (which i am a proud member of) and while it's a first impression, it's a positive one!

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!!!
