It is also an assumption that advertising was pulled as a direct reaction to this test. The two may be completely unrelated.


Ok, it was sounding like they did indeed submit a sub and then backed out...

Izzy, you don't know what happened.

I don't know what happened, either.

Point is, NONE of us knows what happened. And really, it's none of our business.

What I'm taking from all of this is that Gene posted about something that should have been private, and people like you show up, having never been here before, to tell us how Axiom is bad.

To me, that spells troll and that means I won't be feeding you.

On the contrary AH get lots of publicity out of something like this, I imagine their hit count goes up substantially when these sorts of dust ups happen on their site.

I do quite enjoy their reviews since they are one of the few sites who do measurements I just wish they would keep matters private unless “the other guy” throws the first stone publicly. It would make them look more professional.

Think for a second - are we really getting anywhere suggesting or saying this or that happened, or he/she's more or solely at fault?

This is like a f'in "reality" show for christ sake. People should mind their own business IMO.

just wondering how do we know Audioholics is referring to Axiom in that article. I didn't see their name mentioned at all but they do talk about Earthquake trying to sue them for publishing a review. I assume Axiom isn't the only brand testing subs on a pole in free space and Audioholics has many advertisers.

I know Audiohilics lead to Axiom and I don't stand alone in saying that. All those reviews, endorsements and accolades are what lead me to buy Axiom speakers. Now all of a sudden they have cold feet when it comes to submitting a product? Hey....I don't think Axiom problem per se is with Gene, but rather the reviewer I believe, let's just say its a feeling I get having read that email. Yeah...sure I followed this forum and I decided to become a member when I bought my Q's and I'm not trying to stir the pot or cuase crap. I'd like to comtinue to post here and at audioholics, I use no alias only my name.

Best regards, Bill...
