Hey guys I was checking out ebay and came across this ad. I emailed the guy and said those arent M80s. He emailed me back and said that they are.... he said theyre custom. To me the drivers look different, differnt configuration, and it doesnt even look like an Axiom box. Should this ad be reported? Kinda seems like a scam to me.

Those have more the Paradigm's style.

That is no Axiom M80. Just plain fraud in my book.

Those are not M80's.

It's eBay. What do you expect? Report it if you want, it's likely eBay won't care or do anything about it.

Not an Axiom, looks a little like an older Paradigm as Eric mentioned.

ya paradigm didnt have the tweeter one down, looks like a scam to me. I reported the item to ebay, maybe theyll look at it in a couple days, but then again maybe not because that means no commission.

I like that it has unmatched subsonic performance. I wonder how its sonic performance is.

It's unmatched when traveling slower than the speed of sound.

Uh oh, it's pedantic time again. Subsonic and supersonic refer to moving faster or slower than the speed of sound. While infrasonic and ultrasonic reference below and above the hearing range. That's like infrared and ultraviolet, being below and above the visible light spectrum.
