Good news, got my Axiom and SVS shipment yesterday. Bad news, appears I received a bad M22 as it played for a couple hours then quit on me today. None of the drivers are working and it gave no notice before abruptly quit. I did try switching speakers to ensure it was not my Denon. Good news, TT Axiom and they are sending out a replacement as they feel it could be a bad crossover.

Now what do i do with my good equipment just sitting there? Guess i hook up one of my oldies and just deal with it.

Dang, that's a bit of bad luck. I wonder if something happened in shipping?

I doubt it would be shipping damage that would cause a faulty crossover. That speaker would have to take one hell of a beating for that to occur since it is so well protected by the packaging as well as the cabinet. It could also be something as simple as a loose connection(s) somewhere. Doesn't really matter however since they are sending you a new speaker.

Good luck and hope you get the replacement quickly.

Thanks Dr. I am guessing it is something loose as well, otherwise it wouldn't make sense. It was the first chance I had to even get it kind of turned up too. I was listening to a CD and had the Denon at -10 which means a long ways to go yet. I hope this doesn't make me "gun shy" when i ask for it to perform later. But hey stuff happens and the people at Axiom were very friendly and the first thing he said was let me get another one out to you and we will worry about what happened to this one when it gets back. That is stand up customer service IMO. They could have responded with "what did you do" type of response.

Try standing up your VP100 vertically in place of the M22 main if it sounds ok run a phantom center until the replacement M22 arrives.

One more reason to buy matching L/C/R speakers. ;\) (that’s not aimed at you, just an inside forum joke)

I would pull out the lower driver and see if the crossover came aprt or something of that nature, you might be able to 'fix' it and have use of it till the other one arrives.

Jake, i thought about that as well but in the end they are sending me a new one and i don't want to do anything that might screw it up and void a warranty.

I am somewhat surprised they didn't suggest it in the first place, then again I am sure they want to see for themselves what went wrong for future consideration.

This isn't a bad idea as a temporary solution if you can't wait. It would also be a fun experiment to be able to hear if you notice any differences between them and the extent of it.
