Andrew, don't know why your asking us ... (except perhaps to get us all excited).

I will, of course, be interested if it improves something without giving up something else. So if rearranging an EP800, can get something like better seat to seat performance using this design; i'm all ears (so to speak ... especially if the price stays the same). If it's more subtle, like less cabinet vibration, I'm interested and it's a selling point but ... it will be hard to get me to pay for it unless you can relate it a performance gain.

I'd be very interested in this design as well. As others have said, I am curious what the real world advantage would be to this design? Is it similar output in a smaller package? Sonos has adopted this design in their subwoofer , but that is a niche product for Sonos owners. Plus they have oval 'racetrack' drivers to get the form factor they wanted.

I am excited to see what Axiom will come up with for new sub designs! Please keep us posted Andrew.

Loc: It's all about the location.
I'd be interested in this type of sub and it's tehnical advantages over a single or dual driver (same baffle mount) from Andrew. I'd imagine sq would be the main benefit due to vibration cancellation, and driver protection would improve with the sealed/opposed configuration.
