Now this is no reflection On Axiom or anything else..just what i went thru.
I got the QSC..pluged it in, fired it up. In a few mins, one set of tweeters stoped working. Shut it down, pulled the tweeters on that speaker......NOW BOTH speakers had there Blue wire disconected. I pluged them back in...the wires basically feel off. I had to crimp them to stay on.

Ok...fired it back up....ran it for 30 min..then i saw the QSC clip on the left channel. Shut it down. The other speaker..the tweeters,were dead. Again, i pulled the tweeters...this time the top one was disconnected, the bottom was still there. Again the blue connection was off. I crimped both connections.
I told Axiom about the problem, but in any case..very strange.
I have never seen any thing like this, on any speakers before.
Bottom line is just really bad connections. They just feel off.

Now let me say..once i fixed them the speakers work fine. In fact great. The bass is a tad lacking...it's there, and more correct if you will, but just not..heavy. Not in your gut, maybe.
It's just hard pressed to be below a certain DB.... but not like it's not there. The mid's and treble are right on, and you do have a massive soundstage. They are not bright speakers..not sure why any body would say that.
Just for my taste, I feel like it needs a sub...nothing massive...just need a little more bottom end. So just a small sub..just too add to the bottom.

That's a dose of bad luck is what that is.

Fire up the onkyo now that you know there was a problem with the speakers. See if it will still shut down on you.

Yeah, my first thought was the less-than-perfect connections just might have been the problem with the previous amp shutting down...

yup, but I didn't want to bring that up again. smile My m60's and m80's have killer bass, how do you have your receiver or pre setup? In fact, in some auditions people asked me if I still had my subs on. Probably your room.

I would Blue...but i was pushing way more then the Onkyo could put out with out cliping...If it could do it it at all.
The M80's will get isanely loud....but there is just that little bottom end thats missing....or the gut feel sort of speak.
It's there, but it's not...you hear it but don't feel it, type thing....It just needs at little boost.

Ah. I thought the reason you got the QSC was because the Onkyo was shutting down. There is also a good possibility the problem was the speakers and not the amp that was the issue. Even more so now than what myself and others have speculated prior. At least everything is working now.

This venture has been a really strange one.

No, Blue, you could be right. But when the speaker connections fell off..I have no clue since, they worked for a while, at least on 1 speaker, then fell off after 30 min of playing them on another. I have no clue.
I can't say if the Onkyo was BAD.(at least with 4 ohms)or not. But the speakers once fixed..take way more power then the Onkyo could put out.

The QSC did not shut down...the Onkyo did...can't say thats good or bad...but. Thats what happened.
