Well folks, a decision has been made. After receiving some very lovely samples from Axiom, I have decided to go with Ebony w/black grills. The other colors were very nice, but just did not compliment the current trim in the room. The Buffalo Oak was to light, and not much darker than my current mansfield beech speakers.
Anyway, the Ebony was very cool, at least on the sample. It will look great with the lights turned on, and will totally disapear against the black front wall during movie watching.
I've got about 3-4+ weeks to wait for them to be built by the custom shop. I'm going crazy. In regards to the sub, I decided on upgrading to the EP600.
