That almost sounds like I'm insulting council members, but just to be clear, I was only inspired by my own ability to sound stupid, thus the quoted text.

I know an insult when I see one.

Well good news , i borrowed a tapp set off a friend of mine and i successfully was able to bore new threads into the insert with no issues .

I'm glad you found a solution. Its not ideal, but is does allow you to set up the speakers the way you wanted and enjoy them.

I wonder if Axiom is going to put something in place to avoid this issue in the future. Something simple like threading a spike into each hole a couple of turns at the end of line to verify all inserts are threaded. Thats the kind of thing we do in automotive manufacturing all the time.


I just spoke with Brent and let him know about what happened with the insert .

So hopefully no one else has this issue .

Did this change? The product page still says it's no additional cost, but if you go into the Customize Yours, it says it's +$40.

Charles, in an earlier reply I'd expressed my dismay at learning that no additional charge would be made for the second set of terminals, and offered the suggestion that a $1000 premium would be appropriate. Perhaps progress is being made.

I do not know if Paradigm ever offer any upgrade, but if you decided to do it, IMO it is nothing special to expect that you will be realistic with the prices, specially with your previous customers, otherwise just say no and period, nobody expected nor forced Axiom to offer any upgrade, we just asked them if they would like to offer it...And please do not bring Paradigm here, their performance is not in the same league, and their policies and prices shouldn't be in the same league neither...

At this point are any orders placed with the Factory Outlet guaranteed to be v3'S?

That would be a question for Axiom.

Actually Paradigm is a good comparison as the Studio series is very comparable in SQ to Axiom's and as far as I know they have never offered upgrade parts available to the public after new version was released and it has been my experience that their drivers are expensive to buy as well in relation to other suppliers out there.
