I thought it would be a cool idea if we had a thread of "Axiom Moments" filled with funny/cool moments with their audio setups. I guess if people think this is a dumb idea the thread will die, but I'll start.

I hadn't watched a movie in a few weeks, so I decided to break the ice with Saving Private Ryan. As soon as I started up the movie, the PA (equivalent to RA) said "I thought that was thunder when I first heard it...dang that was loud." About half way through the movie, a guy from the room next door comes into my room and exclaims "Drazba, my floor is SHAKING."

Good to be watching movies again.

Don’t know if these count.

The first time I watched “Master and Commander” during the opening battle scene I thought I heard a couple people running across the roof of the apartment. Thinking they might be firefighters I jumped up to look out the door only then to realize it was coming from the speakers.

The first time I calibrated the speakers I set the EP500 volume at the 9:00 position. As the test tone dropped lower windows, dishes and the TV started to shake and rattle. I thought I heard one of the kids in the neighboring apartment yell “terremoto.” I confirmed with my fathers cleaning lady that it meant earthquake.

I was watching Transporter 2 last night. Every time someone knocked on a door in the movie my dogs would bark like crazy and run to the front door, then sit there with a confused look because nobody was there.

Most of the door knocking sounds were in the right surround, which from my listening position happened to be in exactly the same direction as the front door, so there were a couple of times I got up to check. No barking though...

Does this count as an Axiom audio moment? My entire system is disconnected and sitting in various locations in my dining room, along with all the furniture that used to be in the living room. I ripped out the carpet last night (along with the pesky tack strips) and will be installing a new floor (Marmoleum) sometime this weekend or early next week. But, since all the furniture is out of the room, I'm also painting the ceiling and walls. But before I paint the ceiling and walls I have to do all the prep -- and this room has a few problem areas where the prep took some time.

Before I started the "project" I thought I'd have the floor in by now. Funny how jobs always get bigger as you go.

So to tie this all back to audio, since my Axioms and receiver are out of commission for a while, I've unearthed my AIWA boombox so I can listen to music. Dang it sounds like crap. I miss my Axioms.

Now, I have to crack open that can of primer and get back to work.

I know what you mean, I experienced the same with my Sharper Image bookshelf stereo the first day of my move.

Whenever I used to move, the stereo system was the last to be packed up and the first to be setup.

Just run some speaker wire and plug in your receiver and a disc player. You know you want to.....
