Yes, an amp channel dedicated to each driver. With the active crossover you can also make adjustments on the fly. For that Bryston speaker, that approach is going to be beneficial IMO. Those speakers will just sing.

It is definitely for a specific demographic. However you can still make that speaker with a passive crossover and use a single amp to power it.

Aw-shit.... I just ordered new speakers. I don't even have them yet, and it's already time to upgrade them.

Surprising that there's been no speculation on the reason that the base was placed(apparently purposefully)beside what Andrew termed the "rendering". Does this possibly indicate a port and/or driver on the bottom? Note also that some speakers(including Axiom in the past)have one or more drivers on the back of the enclosure.

Perhaps over simplistic, but I'm thinking a new speaker with an omni-directional tweeter jutting out of the top. It can be purchased separately for other speakers models.

It will be followed by the exact opposite design with a long, tubular, tweeter horn that points only at the sweetspot and plays nothing except the words "Exterminate, Exterminate!"

Ian,
I clearly remember my first participation to an Axiom Audio Expert meeting back in 2003, there was already an early prototype of the new flagship tower speaker in the conference room. At the time, you had given me a few details on it. At almost every subsequent meeting I would bug you for updates.

You had demanding specs and very high expectations for it. I'm pretty sure that the physical shape, size and other components of the final version differ substantially of what you were imagining for its look back then. It certainly not as tall as the early prototype was.

How time flies when you are having fun . . .

Or.... dig a deep hole in the back yard.

When she asks what that's for, tell her it's going to be my new home after the new speakers arrive.
