With all this talk about in-wall / on-wall and ADA1250 amps, it just pushed me over the edge and figuring that I had bought a large enough amp for 7 channel surround, I might as well buy the two extra speakers to get it.

Darn you all for spending my money like that.

At least Ian isn't offering On-Wall subwoofers. I bet we all have enough empty wall space to hold a few of those smile

Thanks Ian - great service inventing a new product! Ordered. It will be interesting to see how the M80 On Walls go.

FYI - In discussing this with my local HiFi shop (FYI - the rep was a Canadian who knew about about Axiom) shop, they said they have struggled to find such product in the market (they had looked at a couple of options but they we either rubbish or way overpriced).

If you're going to all that trouble, I don't know why you're not getting LFR900s. There's room on the top of the LFR1100 cabinet for a Bose 601 series II-style free space array that fits a mid-range and a tweeter. If Ian gives Andrew a beer and pizza, he can whip out the DSP coefficients on that puppy over the weekend.

I need to add here that Andrew has always had a love for what Bose did and it showed when he was at Mirage and now he's perfected it at Axiom apparently. So he'd love to DSP the hell out of an on-wall speaker just because he's a nerd engineer that just loves to do shit like that. Believe me - I know.

Seriously dude! Go all in or go home.

LOL! Not my money. Heee heee!

Just got them! .... and while FexEx took a bite out of one of the M80 On Walls (I'm sure Axiom will sort that out), I've given them a quick audition (note: They will not be properly mounted till next week at the earliest). At first I just tried out the M80 On Wall in place of the existing M80s keeping the existing VP150. My impression is that it was not well timbre balanced over the three (the VP150 had much more apparent bass). Swapping over to the VP150 On Wall and the timbre across the front matched up nicely!

Once they are properly setup I'll be able to post a better impression as the VP150 is resting on a box, and the M80 On Walls are just sitting off the floor (so too low and I'm getting some harmonics off the floor boards as a result).

Most importantly, they got a Thumbs up from the family and take up much less space and are very unobtrusive. Will blend in nicely when painted.

........so far so good!

I'm just looking back at the dates and shaking my head... custom speakers in 2 weeks. Very nice.

Sorry to hear about the shipping damage... I thought Axiom's new packaging was finally good enough that couriers would not be able to destroy the contents no matter how hard they tried, but I guess the couriers are getting better too frown

Yup about 6 weeks from discussion, order, and delivery to Australia! Not bad at all smile Axiom's packaging is the best I've seen and I've never had issues till now. But obviously no match for FedEx!
