If Axiom were to improve their speakers, what improvements would you suggest?

OK, serious answer is I don't know exactly. Improving the sound is something that probably consumes most of Ian's time and I suspect gains in this area don't come easily, or possibly without cost.

Axiom could spend money on updating the styling, but that again comes at a cost.

If you add those two together you get something like Paragdigms Signature line. Look at the cost there.

I was thinking of an icebox/door on the back of the M80, what do you think?

Great question Sarang.
It used to be that people wanted real wood options, and look, we've had that now for a little while. Just goes to show that Axiom listens to the customer base and future suggestions. I don't know what they should do different. They offer a wide product line, with a bunch of finishes, and the design is solid sonically, so only minor tweaks are made to the design. I think that the biggest thing that I've heard or thought is the physical design of the cabinets *could* be updated a little bit, but that would probably cost more too.

For me, I like them as is. :-)

I know, I know......

On/in wall M80's. Maybe not sound as good as the floorstanders, but it they could get more of that low to midbass than the M22 on/in wall without the shrillness I've experienced from the on/wall M22. It just might be a weiner...
