Is there a new line of subs or upgrades to the subs coming out and if so when is the expected date ?

I ordered the M80 a month later the M100's came out.

I don't want to do this again, I plan on ordering a couple EP500's but if the new line is coming will wait. Chances are I am going to order after christmas anyways.

Hi troyd,

Not that I'm aware of. I was just over at the plant a couple of weeks ago for a visit and also did some listening tests at the plant. I had dinner with Ian and Amie (Colquhoun) and Andrew Welker. If there were a new line of subs coming, I'm certain it would have been mentioned.

Regards,
Alan

There was this discussion though I don't know if it went anywhere or not or what sort of timeline is involved.

Hi Alan thanks for the quick reply.
Yes, Socketman that was one of the threads, there are a few more references to new subs of some sort.
Maybe they are talking about new amps in the subs

Axiom Subwoofers: Survey and Next Generation

It's hard to know how much longer they'll be in development. It's been quiet, and we haven't heard about the Airplay speakers in a while, either.

I personally was expecting something new in subs -- either a new line or a new speaker or some kind of upgrade -- this fall. As I understand it, Axiom does much testing of subs outside on a pole and this is mostly only practical in summer and early fall. So given that there has been no further mention of this, and instead we got the new M100 and (almost) the upgraded woofers for the LFR1100, I'm guessing it will be next summer/fall at least until much new comes out in the subwoofer line.

Then again, Axiom has been known to make incremental improvements without any fanfare...

I think Alan is just yanking our chain. He has 4 of the new subs playing in his living-room (or maybe his sailboat?) at this very moment. whistle

Jealous. Although I'm pretty sure an EP800 would sink my Hobie Cat.

Alan is being coy.

Not really.
There was no discussion of new subs and the double-blind listening tests I did turned out to be--as I wrote in my rating sheet-- "these are two excellent speakers, virtually identical (in fact they might be the same speaker)" .

When I discussed the results with Ian after several days of tests, it turned out it was identical speakers, LFR1100's, with different woofers!

I awarded "both" speakers A and B with the highest scores I've given in double-blind tests at the Axiom plant, about 9 out of 10.

Anyway, if there were any new subwoofer in the near future, a prototype would have been in the listening tests.

Regards,
Alan
