Unless I'm missing something, it still sounds like primarily a software thing. What I was thinking is that you would download a loudspeaker-specific, version-appropriate file for the device to use, kind of like downloading a driver for Windows. I can see an AVR or preamp not having enough spare processing power to be able to do whatever this device does. In any case, I'm probably going to want to be one of the first to try it out, so I'd better start saving. smile

I would like to see a L/R with an 8" or 10" subwoofer. I currently have the M60's EP 600 and VP180. If i was to buy a new speaker, i would want something more significant than the m60 or m80.


something akin to the Wilson design. either the Sasha, or sophia. However i do not want to pay wilson price's. With that being said, i am sure ivan can bring something to market that would be a good value, Ivan if you make a speaker of this design, i WILL buy it... i think others would as well.


i realize that this speaker would possibly not appeal to axioms primary demographic, so i understand if my idea does not come to fruition.


But, if i don't ask, it will have even less of a chance of happening right?

Pleasantly surprised to hear that the VP160 will have a W M/T(or T/M?) W configuration. Pleasantly because over the years I've suggested several possibilities for such a speaker. Surprised because if the same pattern as the M80 to VP180 development was followed(i.e., same drivers, about the same enclosure size)this couldn't be done with the M60. The mid-range and tweeter, if not modified, extend at least 9" and obviously couldn't be placed vertically in a 9.25" enclosure.

Speculation as to what the solution might be would include: taller enclosure; driver frames cut to fit closer to each other; use a smaller mid-range, such as the 4" from the QS4. Any other ideas?

Who the heck is Ivan? grin

John, I'm betting the tweeter faceplate gets virtually eliminated.
