Yes I was thinking in terms of a future bi amp setup.On a dual input setup if you pull those gold straps out you should effectively be splitting the speaker into 2separate top and bottom speakers.If it doesn't then what is the point of them?It should also raise your impedance on both top and bottom to the point of allowing a couple of amps that want to start to clip the minute you drop the load below 8 ohms to drive them quite nicely.

Ken, the cast baskets look completely different from the exterior. Since they are cast from a form, they "look" more more stout than the regular ones. Steve posted some photos in the LFR thread of the differences.. The cast ones do look much better, in my opinion.

as I'm being told, and from what I'm reading on it so far, the point of them is exactly nothing. The point of them is to please the misinformed/uninformed. Hence Axioms term for it "audio jewelry".

I'm not really informed on this subject myself, just been reading lots on it the past couple days.

Even if it "technically" does make a difference, it doesn't sonically make a difference in double blind listening tests. This is what I've gathered so far.

haha thanks man smile I'm still searching too. lol

edit: since the only difference is appearance, maybe in the audio jewelry section(or somewhere) axiom could post a side by side picture, grilles off, of the two options?
