SBrown, i am fairly sure that the drivers are outsourced.. However, this brings up a question about the new speaker... Since the new speaker has 2 options for drivers, i wonder what the difference is... Besides what the site says. "die-cast"... I think i will be calling tomorrow to get an answer, as i may change my order slightly...

Good call on the driver deal, wonder if Axiom could clarify, and what is the difference in the die-cast vs other?

Might be more ridged of a basket for the woofer? I am not sure what the difference would be for the tweeter though....

ALL of our drivers are designed and manufactured in-house. This is the only way to have full control over performance and quality. Our subwoofer baskets are already die-cast. The reasoning for a die-cast option for the other drivers is more perception than anything else. Some manufacturers use very thin-walled stamped steel woofer baskets that can resonate at some frequencies. However, the standard Axiom baskets are made from very heavy gauge steel and do not "ring". You can expect identical performance from either the standard or die-cast option. smile

Sorry to be a fly in the ointment here but I'm not sure I buy into the notion that the only way to maintain quality is to build your own drivers. Many of your competitors use OEM parts or they work with OEM companies to spec their parts. They have no QC issues as far as I know. In fact, many of them offer much higher performing products dollar for dollar as a result.

Oooh! Now you're stepping on toes, Tom. I always thought that it was Mark's responsibility alone to employ that word here. I love when he uses it, 'cause he does it in such a sassy way. C'mon, Mark! Type it for us again, just this once.

And if they're just a little "trolly," are they a dollop of trollop?
