Okay everyone, you’ve had time to get your best names ready for the Axiom Amps, I know it! As suggested by Ken in our last contest, this time around it’s a limit of three entries per person. (And since we’re all fine upstanding Axiomoes, we understand that that doesn’t mean create 27 new accounts on the Axiom Message Boards to get all your names entered!) Please take a minute to look over the amplifier pages to get a sense of the product, and then hit us with your best shot!

The 1000
The 1250
The 1500

The prize will be your choice of one pair of M3 Algonquin Outdoor Speakers, one pair of M3 Bookshelf Speakers, or Axiom Bucks in the amount of $368; whichever you prefer. Void where prohibited by law or the bounds of good taste.

Contest ends May 15th – hurry and get your one brilliant, golden, pithy jewel-of-an-entry in!

Axiom Standard 1000, 1250, 1500. Standard as in "The new standard" and/or "jazz standard"

I'm gonna resurrect the Epoch from my LFR suggestion, too. Goes well with Millennia: Epoch 1000, 1250, 1500.

Axiom Power 1000, 1250, 1500. Speaks for itself.

Now that's slick. If mpyw wins because the names stay the same as what they are currently, then I'm going to facepalm myself for not thinking of it first.

Axiom's new F1000, F1250, and F1500 amplifiers deliver the force you need to make your music and movies come alive.

You can add -# afterwards for the number of channels. Quicker to type and read "F1500-3" instead of "F1500 three channel."

First entry:

The RAmp Series:


This name is a play on words, using the following definition of 'ramp':

ramp: to increase, especially quickly or at a constant rate

Second entry:

The Foundation Series


foundation: 1 a body on which other parts rest or are overlaid; 2 an underlying basis or principle for something

EDIT: Hmmm, seems avjunkee snagged my letter! smile

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Pulse Width Modulator or Pulse Wave Modulator

A came across a great definition. A technique for getting analog results within digital means.


I'm going to listen to my Axiom Omni-directional Linear Field Radiating speakers through my Pulse Wave Modulator amplifier.

I’m armed and I’m drinking. You don’t want to listen to advice from me, amigo.
