I'm sure many of you have seen this already. I figured it was a great design since we always talk about can I use a center vertical, or can I use a M22 horizontally. They have created a speaker with 2 crossovers, with a switch depending on the orientation you want. What a great concept for matching LCR.

Neat! 5..4..3..2..1 until someone asks why Axiom hasn't done that, you lazy slackers who don't really care about your customers!

Interesting idea, but honestly they should probably offer the same speaker with your choice of orientation, vertical or horizontal use. You'd think offering a switchable crossover would add unnecessary cost to the end product since the majority of people know what they want when they spend that kind of jing. Still, it's very interesting what they did.

Emotiva uses such a feature applied to the surrounds - bipole/dipole switch.

What they should do is come up with two different baffle designs for uncompromised driver placement, and then accompany those layouts with optimized crossovers.

Agreed. There's a name for that... um, oh yeah, I think they call it a dedicated center. grin

Reading the Outlaw site, the claim is that the dual crossovers allow for "optimal performance" in either a vertical or horizontal position. If that's supposed to mean that the performance when horizontal is just as good as when vertical, that's highly unlikely. While horizontal configurations do require different crossover adjustments to minimize their problems, this doesn't make things even; crossover changes can't do everything. It's highly likely that while horizontal performance is significantly improved with the new crossover, the performance while vertical using the vertically optimized crossover is still superior.
