I have an axiom sub, I'm not sure what the model number is as I don't see it anywhere.
I'm trying to set it up properly and I noticed on the back there is a switch that can be set to audio or video. I think it's safe to assume that audio would be better for listening to music and video would be better for watching movies. I was just curious if anyone knows what is actually different between the two settings?

That must be an ancient sub. The new subs don't have a setting like that.

I don't know but if I had to guess, the audio setting engages a rumble (subsonic) filter. This filter stops low frequency noise that is transmitted via a record player from playing through the sub. This type of noise arises from vibrations due to trucks, bombs, zombies stomping around, etc.

The movie setting by-passes the filter because movies have those low frequency effects built in.

If I had to guess it's at least 10-15 years old.
I've owned it for about 10 years, my brother owned it for a while before that and he bought it from a co-worker who I don't know how long he owned it.
To date it's never disappointed me so I have no reason to upgrade just yet

I suppose there's no point informing you the latest subs may offer a more rewarding experience. smile

Seriously, night and day difference! I am loving my upgrade to the new EP600, best purchase ever! The old 350 was great, but man I love this 600!

Yeah, I think I'm going to upgrade my twin walnut 500s to twin aged walnut 600s.

Mojo, the white piano finish with aluminum woofers looks kinda futuristic... it's BAD ASS (yeah i've been watching Cobra Kai on netflix, lol) I guess I need to add pics at some point.

Thanks for the responses.
I believe you that new subs are better but I would never hear the end if it from my wife if I bought a new sub.
The sub is more than adequate for my needs. When I watch tv it's typically after the kids are in bed so I can't turn the sub volume up as much as I would like anyways.
I have a couple of "newer" subs in my basement setup but for the last three + years I had the volume turned right down. This weekend I tried using them but have been having issues getting them to work so I can't even say if they are any better than my old axiom sub

Yeah, if I lived in Florida, by the water, my entire system would be piano gloss white just like my luxury super yacht parked out front. smile
