That 321 speaker employs a totally different aluminum cone 6.5" bass drivers, a 4" midrange and a vifa tweeter. Different cabinet and surely a different crossover because of all this. That equates to a totally different speaker. To me it doesn't even look like the VP160.

I agree. They have the same driver configuration W T/M W, but beyond that, they don't really look alike, IMHO. With different shape, internal volume, and drivers, they probably will not sound alike.

I think the original comment was related to the look and the size (that why it was called Bigfoot), not the sound. In this regard, they do look alike (WT/MW and big enclosure).

Yea, I was just commenting on the similarities. There are a number of differences of course.

Correct Bruno, it was that first glance and initial reaction to the BOXY look, see it elsewhere just never from Axiom.

I second the motion. I'm guessing that there are sound quality issues?

Seriously? "Sound quality issues"? To me, that seems like a pretty pejorative statement, especially considering our nearly complete lack of information about the R&D process of either this speaker or Axiom in general.

How about if we give Ian and Co. the benefit of the doubt instead of punishing him for sharing information on the forum?
