Tom "exlabdriver" mailed us his collection of vintage Axiom brochures, perfectly preserved and in pristine condition. They were a real treat to get, with an interesting look back at the original line up, awards from our own Alan Lofft in his pre-Axiom days, and (it must be said) Ian with a Tom Selleck moustache, cunningly grown to make him look older than his 20-something real age at the time of the photograph.

Take a look at the bottom of the vintage section if you're interested, and thanks again Tom!

Too fun! I hate to say it though, but I like the "fake" woodgrain vinyl wrap than the original book speakers. They looked a little "home-made" by today's standards, but hey. Who cares how some of them looked, as long as they performed, and I am sure that they did.

Every time I see some of the other older product, I am glad that the trapezoidal shape has changed and isn't quite so "triangular"...

Very cool.

But I think both links are going to the same document (#2).

Time to revive the AX Sub concept!

Very interesting. Especially the wood grain look of the early speakers.

Arnie:

The 2 links are to the same brochure. The Awards & Test Reviews do not show in #2.

I just checked my brochure (I had two). The wood grain looks much better in the actual brochure. The pics in the pdf rendition seem to be suffering from some compression artifacts making them look rough, which they are not in real life.

My AX2 black vinyl wrap still looks pristine & quite realistic. It has held up flawlessly over the years despite several moves with me across this country.

I must say that IS one cool mustache he's got there!
Selleck could easily have gone all the way to the nipstache too. No so sure it would work for Ian.
