Hello all;

Whatfurrer brought up a point that we hadn't properly considered when he received his Algonquins - he's side-mounting them and his logo is crooked. A few of the team members at Axiom came up with this solution suggestion. Do you like it? Do you have alternate suggestions?

Thanks for your time!

Amie

It works for me, great idea.

I also don't mind the conventional look of the name just being on its side too much either. I've just seen that a lot and wouldn't question it.

Even better, I would prefer the ability to specify an optional horizontal config and have the logo centered.

I dunno, They seem really out of place if you ask me. Personally, I think they would look best without a logo at all. If thats not an option, Then why not make one that either snaps into place through the grill holes and is moveable, Or is magnetic that will either stick to the grill or to a removable peice that goes in behind the grill sandwiching it between the magnetic front of back peice and the logo which could be magnetic or metal..

Or the logo could be like a pin, where it has two little pegs that go through holes in the grill, and clip into a back peice. I like the logo on the front of my 80's but, I think anything that can be done to not call attention to these speakers is the way to go.

Hey that's cool! I need something like that for my center channel M3!

Most of the year I run it inverted and vertical on top of the TV, but during the Christmas holidays I lay it on its' side to help the little Lady with her decorating.

EDIT: Oops; can the grill be inverted?

On my JBL control5 speakers you can rotate the nameplate. The grill is slightly indented w/ the shape of the nameplate. The shape is a perfect square though...

I think Amie's suggestion is fine, but a compromise.

I can see how Axiom (and some owners) would want to retain the brand on the grille somewhere. I think it looks MUCH more elegant centered at the bottom, whether horizontal or vertical. I think the "best" solution would be to offer a H or V version of the grill (although that does effectively DOUBLE the number of items for sale).

I also like the earlier suggestions of allowing the owner to affix the badge.

Anybody else but me disappointed to get the newsletter and note the absence of an announcement about the powered desktop set?

But I didn't want to be the first to mention it.

I was hoping for some news on the wireless outdoor speakers.
