I have Mackie 824s. They're great monitors, but about $1300/pr.

And then there's these

MK was on my list of HT speakers, but their appearance was not was I was looking for. When I was researching HT equipment, I remember that MK was the speaker of choice for Skywalker Ranch.

It's funny that you say that....

After I posted that last night, I thought: "Did I really send that much on them?". So, just before signing out, I checked the price on M22s ($470/pair) and Outlaw 2200s ($700/pair) and thought "yeah, I could've justified that purchase!"

How well do you think QS speakers would work for a boombox? It's not like you're ever sitting directly in front of the boombox to get the great stereo imaging. Just wondering if there would be any advantage to using QS-type speakers instead. Not that I'm ready to build one yet. Still in the talking stage.

Maybe use VP150s standing vertically, right? Also, is anyone considering using VP150s like this as wide channels? Seems like it could be a good use for them.

I'm wondering if one of the "higher-end" speakers that Axiom is working on is a powered speaker? Do you think? I've only been thinking of cabinet materials and design, but I could see Axiom offering some powered towers with modified single A1400 channels built in.

I'm picturing an amp/processor/tesla coil that sends an amplified signal wirelessly to any number of speakers in the room. smile

... as it zaps its way through your head and microwaves your brain.... (I always worry about all of this wireless stuff.)

Cool tongue. I just noticed that.

... Passive sub unit. This isn't too far out of reality. There was something in the test lab at Axiom that looked like the bottom woofer and port of an M80, partially seen at the bottom left corner of this pic.




I was actually thinking more along the lines of 2 woofers side be side and 2 vortex ports, and a cross over for 60-80 Hz and below - maybe on a footprint of an EP800 (trapezoid), but obviously much shorter. The point being to add just a little bottom end to something like M2's without going to a powered sub.

I tried this when I got my T2's and used the bass module from my old Cambridge Soundworks "sub" / sat system and it really warmed things up. It didn't pass WAF at home, but I'm thinking about this for my office at work. I don't want to boom boom the neighboring offices.
