325W into 8 Ohms and 650W into 4 Ohms continuous into 2 channels.

More than 3 times the continuous rated power is available for peaks.

They will never get turned up more than 3/4 volume. I don't go above -10 on my AVR I don't think I would turn them up any higher with the amp installed.

At least that's how I perceive the reasoning behind the second tweeter in Axiom's design.
People don't realize just how high a note tweeters play. Take a look at the crossover points (e.g. 2Khz, 3.5 kHz) and then play a test tone at the BOTTOM range of the tweeter. A 3kHz note is pretty damn high. People are far more likely to hear differences in the midrange when it comes to overall quality.
Try covering your second midrange driver and see what happens. If it cuts the midrange output (as expected), again, you will likely notice more of a difference there than with the higher tweeter range frequencies.

Only about 6% of "typical" music energy is concentrated in the "typical" tweeter.

However, that 6% is responsible for 90% of the imaging. Given that neither Canes nor I can hear a difference in soundstage or imaging when a tweeter is covered in a dual tweeter set-up, it is a tribute to how well integrated the dual tweeters are in the Axiom designs.

Numbers without references Mojo.
Proof.

When I listen to typical music, I typically hear 6% of that typical music emanating from my typical tweeters. It's plainly obvious to typical me that 90% of the typical imaging comes from my typical tweeters. Are you telling me you can't hear that on your system? If not, you likely need a new power cable.
