Sorry bman. I may have led you astray.


You prefer on-walls to bookshelves now? What changed?


The bookshelf M2s were very good in my living room. No sub needed. Once I had the M2OW properly positioned, they completely disappeared for every tune no matter how badly recorded. The image width also went wall-to-wall and depth is as good as I've ever experienced in my living room.

However, I had to cut their bass by 10dB and use dual subs. Best speakers I've ever heard in my living room.



P.S. When I say "best", I mean the most satisfying.


Interesting. What about the whole 2pi/4pi thing? I thought in/on-walls couldn't image as well because of the lack of space behind then.

The on-walls, when properly positioned, were the biggest Axiom speaker surprise to me. I've been telling folks not to get on-walls and that advice is just dead wrong.

They not only sound terrific, but look at how clean that room looks now. I can listen to them for hours with absolutely no fatigue. I just can't say enough about them.

Regarding 2pi, it's certainly not difficult to mount them on a 5x5 foot of 2x4/drywall and partially FOC that whole assembly. Perhaps this is what Axiom did and they sure did a hell of a job on tweaking the curves.

I'm sitting 12 feet away from them and they are 12 feet apart. Absolutely no problem with SPL at my MLP and I am feeding them with my 55W into 8 Ohms/80W into 4 Ohms Pioneer. I can easily get 150W peaks with that Pioneer. They do not sound stressed at all.

I have a pair of subs which cost me a total of $200 supporting them. One is a Sony I modded and the other a down-firing Yammie. Both 12". Not 500s but certainly good enough.

Glad to see your back Mojo ...
Was a bit concerned ... figured the only thing that would keep you away was if you were hit by a truck ... and even then I was not totally sure that would have stopped you.

Huh... I didn't know about that phase of Black Sabbath... something new to listen to.

I always associated it with the Utopia song.

Used to record it as the last track when making dance tapes... it was fun watching everyone mill around and try to figure out how to dance to it.

Guess I would have had more friends if I didn't do stuff like that... oh well.

OH yeah, I think I like the Dio years with Black Sabbath better, not to mention when he was with Rainbow and then the band Dio. Great songs and a great voice.
