I wonder if Homer got taken for some "Monstruo Cables" by that salesman?

Los Cables del Chupacabra, I think they call them.

That makes sense. They take a bite out of your wallet.

Jeesuz, Rick, are you gonna help us out here, or what?!?!



I'm still of the opinion that the "timbre matching" issues some people have reported regarding center channel speakers are due much more to placement and room boundary issues than they are to design theory.

I'm thinking you may be right. I'm happy with the M22 taking over center channel duties, but I think a lot of the improvement may simply be from having the M22 further out in front of the TV instead of directly in front of it on the entertainment stand.

While in my case it was certainly a factor, I found that the room boundary issues were only enhancing the difference that’s already there. I base that on my listening in my house where I’ve had the speakers set up so that none of the front 3 had any boundaries within 4 feet.

I don’t think the timber differences I hear are any issue with Axiom’s design philosophy just the differences between a ported 3-way vertical array with a couple different drivers and a sealed 2 way horizontal array.
