Maybe a newbie question, but I'd be interested in hearing why Axiom goes the dual driver route instead of larger single drivers.

Edit : just a clarification - why dual woofers, midranges or tweeters, not why 2 or 3 way

I'm sure it is a combination of things, that probably only Ian, Alan and Andrew can really explain in full.

I'd speculate:

-Higher power handling than a single driver
-Lower distortion than larger drivers
-Better off-axis response than larger drivers

Yep - those are reasons I have heard - and I've seen vehement discussions arguing for the opposite (some science, but mostly not - the amount of science is generally inversely proportional to the vehemence of the discussion)

But, looking at the market, across every price range, there are single driver and multiple driver examples, so I'm assuming there are valid arguments for either approach. Be interesting to hear what the brains at Axiom have to say.

(and an aside, it is a very cool thing that, on these forums, it appears that they actually will chime in)

Well, remember that Axiom is fundamentally a Research and Development company. My experience with Axiom products and Axiom people leads me to have great faith in their approach.
