This site show speaker data for about 50 speakers, including 5 from Axiom. NRC of Canada facilities were used to generate the data. In terms of frequency response and distortion, the Energy Connoisseur C-9 and Paradigm Reference Studio 100 v.3 were most impressive, outclassing the M80 from Axiom. Now I am having second thoughts about ordering the M60. Unfortunately, the M60 was not among the speakers that were measured.

Just a wise bit of advice..

Dont buy speakers,componets etc based on specs. The studio 100's cost twice as much as the 80's. if there is a difference between the two, i betcha its not worth over 1000 bucks.

Being an engineer (EE), I cannot help but base my decision PARTLY on objective data. Of course price and actual listening preference will weigh on the final decision.

if you were a speaker designer, and wanted to build an "accurate" speaker.....would you trust your ears or your measuring equipment?

Measuring equipment. Accuracy=measurement. Sounds good may or may not, depending on you POV.

"outclassing the M80 from Axiom"

Well...
What do you mean by outclassing? Just looking over the charts it seemed pretty give-and-take to me.

jbmjr,

I have a neighbor who is an engineer. After 15 years of focused effort, we in the neighborhood think we have him on the road to recovery. . Just this weekend he actually sat and enjoyed a fire rather than trying to calculate the temporal and sonoral displacement created by the inverse proportion of the weight/density relationship of the hardwoods incinerating in the fireplace. Concerning my M60s he said, "those new speakers sound pretty damn good".

On a more serious note, have you had a chance to audition the M60s? I'm not sure where you are, but if you contact Amie at Axiom, she may be able to line you up with an audition. I'm pretty sure that if you turn from the analytical decompostion of that page of specs to the pursuit of actually listening to the incredible output of the M60s, you'll just feel a whole lot better about things and really appreciate a treasure in audio.

Damn, i just realized that was totally nonsensical.

What I mean was that the if you're looking to design a speaker that sounds good to you, you might or might not trust measuring, depending on your point of view.

Or you might go for a certain type of measurement.

I suspect that knowing even part of what goes into speaker design would destroy our puny mortal brains!

Hehe. Maybe. I'm thinking that those measurements are only a slice of the greater pie of meaningful measurements, and even that slice is debatable in interpretation.

But it is a thought provoking site and part of a worthy quest.
