actually never mind. I did the test again. I don't actually hear anything until 20 hz.

Do you have a sub connected?
As for the most part a 5 or 6 inch woofer should be able to go at least 10 or 20 Hz below it's designers test ratings, though you're possibly really taxing the woofer.

The giant Axiom EP800 is rated down to 12Hz at +-3db. Although I am sure there is a 10Hz sub out there, it would be more like a weapon than a piece of audio equipment.

No sub. I will stick to testing the 2 pairs with music rather then test tones.

I will be sending the axioms back. After listening for a few weeks i prefer the peachtree. As i said before the axioms were great and would have been happy with them as well if I did not compare them side by side with the D5s.

I also ordered svs sb-1000 to see how it will sound in this setup. I tried blending my ep-500 with the speakers today, but there is no way i can fit the sub in the 2 places i have available in the room.... and even if i could that's the star of the show in my HT.
