I wish people had the ability to step back and see how idiotic their posts make them look. Does he think Ian was reading Breakfast of Champions, pointed to an asterisk, and said,

"That's what the new ports are going to look like! We'll tell people it reduces port noise and we'll laugh all the way to the bank while thousands buy our ass-ported speakers!"

I'm the furthest thing from a confrontational person & I'd much rather not participate in this juvenile crap; however, the outrageously biased & blatant misinformation over there just irks me to the core.

Call me stoopid, but I just can't let it go unchallenged...

ha , it was an old thread but I had to go and give him a tongue lashing just the same. That guy is malicious, im not sure what the hell Ian did to piss him off but im sure there are other speakers worse than Axioms LOL

OH and that whole cast basket stuff is BS. A little driver like a 5.25 could not possibly stress a steel basket. My car is made of stamped steel and I drive it with confidence. grin

About 8 mths ago I bought a phono preamp and no matter what I did it just did not work as I wanted it to. Eventually it was returned and I got a refund, lost a little on the shipping ,no biggy. Now I have a preamp I really love . I could go online and bash the other company and probably do some serious damage to their reputation. Im just no like that, and there is nothing in it for me , which makes me wonder why GT is so hell bent on defaming axiom. Now I am by no means an axiom fanboy in any way shape or form. Are they the best ? NO they are decent for the money and they are great for movies. So my beef with GT is not from a fanboy point of view its from a civilized society point of view. The few tend to ruin things for the many all the while hiding behind their keyboard. Darn you TAM ya got me might riled grin I feel better, had to say my piece. AAAhhhh

Thanks for chiming in - I always feel lonely over there.

A short story from me. I bought a new, early production 2007 CUV from a large Asian auto manufacturer. Although I loved the vehicle's design & performance, unfortunately I found out on the net that I had predicable, multiple major mechanical problems coming down the road. Seems that it came to market a year too early. Although the local dealer took really good care of me, after 4 years of major repairs (all under warranty but majorly inconvenient) I'd had enough when I found that now timing chains were breaking. Hence I switched to my present trouble free CUV.

Unlike speakers that are rather unimportant in one's life (sorry Ian, ha!), a $40K vehicle that is one's main transportation is. Once I traded in the bad vehicle, I was through with its forums & all reference to it in my life. As a mature & pragmatic individual, I put out $20K that I hadn't intended to, licked my wounds & got on with my life. I wouldn't even think of frequenting the forums or the net for years to continually slag the other manufacturer, although I probably had ample justification to do so - certainly more than not liking a damn speaker. It's just not in me to initiate nor participate in this kind of vile, juvenile behavior.

I find it all quite tiresome, unnecessary & yes, despicable. It's an entertainment pastime for heaven's sake, not a religion...

I'm afraid to click the last link. After the personal attacks I received in addition to GT's idiotic banter, I left that whole AVS forum section.
