I think Ian prefers to things that other companies don't do to differentiate his product from the rest. Though axiom had a hand in the design and building of the Model T Mini , that is James Tanner's vision. I personally like the 3 way design like the Model T Mini's and built my own using axioms drivers. The sound the same as my M2's ,which says to me that the size of the drivers is not relevant when using a sub to handle the low end.
