It's in my sig over at AH under the same user name blush. As for a cost comparison the pb12 costs 779.00 cdn before taxes, factor that in...it cost me maginally more which included shipping from BC to Onatrio..but I was lucky due to a surplus in material and some other contributing factors so <1000.00.

Yeah. Funkywaves was mentioned here recently (a few days ago actually) and I noticed it and linked to your sig here. I was hoping for a bigger picture like the one above. smile

Very nice design! Love the look of that grill too. So unique.

Heh..I didn't even know about that thread when I referenced my sig in that eariler post blush. It's real walnut venner finished with expresso stain in a satin finish. In due time, I hope to transition over to the M22 custom in walls and hope Axiom will be ble to colour match the sub. smile

Thanks again, Bill

Axiom does do custom finishes. If you can get a sample of the finish from Funkywaves (or if you have one available) there should not be a problem with getting a good match between your speakers and the sub I think. smile

I've already done some colour matching using the available walnut, but I will likely provde them(Axiom) with my sample.

Sorry for the thread derail....back to our regular programming!

Sincerely, Bill

Gene is claiming it to be an ultimate-shootout of subwoofers. That is, the testing methodology is going to be some of the most rigorous, even if the subjects are not so ultimate.

I agree with Mark that calling it and “Ultimate Subwoofer Shootout” is a bit of a misnomer with many leading brands missing. However, I understand those brands not wanting to participate since there is really no upside for them. Many of them are Audioholics advertisers so if they do good in the shootout people will claim that’s why. If they do poorly it’s even worse. If up against a new less well known brand there is nothing for the established brands to gain.

OTOH if the first round had been kept secret until several established brands were recruited to fill all the slots there may have been a better chance of seeing an Axiom, HSU, Epic, ED, face-off. I don’t see SVS entering after their falling out with Audioholics.

A more civilized language (something you could feed into a compiler) would use parentheses or postfix notation to make it clear whether we were talking about "a Shootout between Ultimate Subwoofers" or an "Ultimate Shootout between Subwoofers".

While the event may not fully live up to the former, it still seems on track for the latter.

Even for "a Shootout between Ultimate Subwoofers", one has to ask how many of the subwoofers would have to be "Ultimate-ish" in order to justify the name. All of them ? One ? Two ? I would argue that if at least two of the subwoofers fell into the "potentially ultimate" category that would be enough to invoke the "no whining" clause.

(Sorry, I've spending a lot of time reviewing legal agreements recently. It follows me home sometimes ;))

I agree with the title Ultimate being misleading but I for one am happy to see that Rythmik and Funkywaves in attendance. They each bring something a little different into this, one deveops and build drivers and DIY kits and the other build excellent custom products. What other critiera do you need. As for some of the aformentioned subs ...Axiom's turning down the invite really suprised me, but for the the others like Epik(who don't even ship to Canada), ED(we know of their CS problems) and we're all aware of svs pb-13 ultra.
