After many years of thinking about it, I'm finally getting some Axioms.
The bug first hit me back in '05 I think, but my after school job couldn't exactly finance what I wanted. So I've had the plans on hold, but now that I've got a little more cash to play with I'm going to splurge and pick up a pair of M80's.
Just a couple of final hurdles; the first one is getting an amp to power these bad boys. I'm going to go down the Pro Amp route for the sheer price/watts factor and am pretty set on getting the QSC GX5
because it has plenty of power and also regular phono inputs.
So my question is; Is there any great reason why I shouldn't go for this unit? I know about the possibility of fan noise, which can be modded to a quieter fan if need be.
My second hurdle is getting the speakers shipped to Australia and avoiding as much import tax as possible.
According to this page
, All goods (except for tobacco products and alcoholic beverages) may be imported duty and tax free if their value is $1,000 or less.
So my plan is to order 2 separate single M80's, with one coming to my house and one going to my parents house. So basically just wondering if anyone can see any problems with this?
