Crystal clear. A stockpile of drivers isn't a bad thing unless storing them is a problem. At least you will be covered for any replacements in the future. You should accept this IMO.

I just looked in the port holes of both of my M22's and all I see are the metal plates that are the back side of the tweeters, and a little white fuzzy stuff just below them. Nothing acrylic or plastic and no wires.

Can you take a pic for us, Ichigo? We don't really have a clue what you're talking about, I don't think...

Don't understand why woofer's became involved with a tweeter problem.

They were jealous. Woofers are like that.

Ichigo, on my M22s the only thing visible through the port is the metal back plate of the tweeter. Every speaker of course has wires inside the enclosure leading from the crossover to the drivers, and I don't think that the exact location of them would affect the sound unless they were audibly vibrating against the metal. The exact reason for what you saw, if there is a reason and it wasn't just an assembly error, would be known only by Axiom.

As the doctor says accept the 9 spare drivers. Why is this even a question?

LOL I don't really think the screwed M22 sound too different from the others, but since I don't understand too much about speakers I thought, why not ask to the ones who do. So here I am.


I could speculate as to why Axiom is offering to also send the midrange divers but then that would be silly when you are already in contact with them and can just ask them for yourself.

Hi Ichigo,

I think all of this confusion is due to what you are actually looking at, which is the back of the tweeter housing. Axiom has been using a plated metal can on the back of it's tweeters and recently changed over to a black plastic cup. There is no difference whatsoever between these tweeters, it's simply a running change which is invisible unless you're looking inside the speaker. If this bothers you I'm sure we can send you one tweeter with the metal can.

Hi Andrew thanks for the care. Sorry for the late reply but I had a problem with my computer and had to wait for some parts to arrive so I could fix it. As a matter of fact I just realized that there is no air coming out the rear port on the last M22 sent to me, so there is definitely something wrong with it. The woofer and the tweeters are all working but there is no airflow coming out at all. Thanks for your support!

Very little air flow from the port is detectable except on loud bass passages. Are you sure that there's none at those times?
