Hi guys I haven't been really lucky with Axiom. LOL Soon after receiving my last M22 got to know that there is a manufacture mistake on it. Don't know if any of you guys have ever taken a look inside it's rear port. From what I could see there is some kind of acrylic covering the tweeter if there is no mistake on my judgement and one of the M22 came missing this and with wires exposed while the other 2 don't. After getting in touch with Axiom an offer has been laid down. They would send me 3 tweeters and 6 woofers to make it up for the screw up. Have been a bit confused since I thought they would offer me one new tweeter so I could change the one with different color and also to have my M22 fixed. Guess that they can't fix it. Do you guys think that this cover stuff would make any difference regarding sound matter? I have been reading a little about speaker manufacturing processes and if I am right the nowadays models are made in a way that they separate every component on it's own cabinet because of sound matters. Should I ask Axiom to fix it the right way my M22 or just accept their offer? That's my dilemma now. Thanks for all the help to come! smile

Not sure why you need 6 woofers and three tweeters, when you only need 1 tweeter replacement according to your post. If they want to send you six woofers and three tweeters at their cost then why not accept? Colour me confused however.

Good luck!

I have been confused too. LOL The only thing I needed was 1 tweeter bright colored. Because of the thing missing and wires exposed they offered 2 more tweeters and 6 woofers. 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.

My only concern was regarding losing sound quality because of the exposed wires and no acrylic cover behind the tweeter. What do you guys think, would it matter?

I'm a little lost, since I've never looked inside of mine. How did you see this? Just by looking inside of the port? Did you use a flashlight and a mirror or something? or did you take the tweeter out?

I guess the tweeter is right in front of the port, isn't it? I'll have to wait until I get home and look inside of mine.

Just by looking. I compared the new one I got with the older ones I received first. I wasn't really looking for anything, as I was fooling around with my speakers and I saw that rear "hole" LOL just thought why not take a look inside? So when I did, could see some loose wires. To have a confirmation that this was a standard thing on the speakers decided to do a A/B comparison, realizing that there was something wrong with it.

Behind the tweeter there is some transparent thing covering it's back and there is no showing of any wire on 2 of my M22. Maybe I should ask Alan in case any of you don't know if this thing might affect sound quality. As far as I know about manufacturing there is nothing there without a reason, even the smallest thing.

Have you tried it out to see if there is sound coming from all 3 speakers in the new M22?

I'm still lost. If one speaker is the problem, why not send you a single speaker or the replacements parts for just that one speaker?
