I can't, but I can fix your image within your post.

Those are some golden oldies for sure. Be interesting to find out their lineage.

This is a link to the vintage page, with links to older models - https://www.axiomaudio.com/blog/vintage/

Also, my first Axioms were 1989/90 vintage AX2 models. Those models had square cabinets. The image here have the newer "ASW" or anti standing wave design.

Funny enough, there is no mention or pictures of the square AX lineup

It's tough because the ports keep moving around on older Axioms. Most of the units in the brochure were front-ported but everything in the picture above is either sealed or rear-ported...

... except for the sub where I guess we are looking at the back smile

The center channel looks like AX1 based on size of drivers etc...

Not clear from the picture if the speakers with concave dust caps were built that way or poked in. One of the tweeter domes looks pushed in, so I guess it's possible that the same could have happened to some of the dust caps.

These are from the early and mid 90s. The one on the left is an AX1.5, the 8" are AX2 Bookshelf, the sub is an AX150, and the centre is an AX1 with the domed cones pushed in. Where did you find these?

I have a pair of AX2 full-size doing side duty. I remember 25 years ago a neighbour called me over to hear his new pair. I went straight out and picked up a pair myself I was so impressed.

Now, 25yrs later they still sound great as sides in a 7.1 system, along with some M100's, a VP180v3, some Sound Dynamics rears and a Velodyne sub. Looking to upgrade the sub, but very, very happy with all the Axiom's in my system!
