the rest of the speakers showed up today right on time and in perfect shape.
unfortunnately the fronts have to stay in the box for a few more days as the floor isn't completed yet but at least the surrounds are up.
I want to thank everyone on the forum for helping me to decide on the axioms . your very detailed descriptions of the sounds, set up, and plus and minus of these speakers absolutely sold me. I could go on and on but I'll leave it at that.
thanks again everyone.
