I didn't want to hijack OldSchoolBoarders thread regarding grill colors, but wonder about the grills on/off option. It seems like many people prefer them off. My take is that although Axioms are as good looking as any speaker with the grills off, the "grill on" look is much cleaner.

What do you think?

Do your Axioms spend the majority of their time with their grills on or off?

I like them on - my wife suggested when we bought them that she liked the grills off, but I think it looks less flashy, more refined and more finished with them on.

In my soon to be done new HT room the back wall will be black to draw attention to the screen, I figure the black grills will help remove attention visually from the speakers.

grills prevents kids, friends, neighbors, and pets from punching in the woofers.

To me, Axioms with the grill on makes it look pedestrian - just like any other speaker. Axioms don't exactly have cutting edge external design

Maybe because I'm in my 20s...I like to be a little more flashy lol...

On...for safety. If I were living alone with no pets, I might leave them off though. Or, take them off from time to time if I wanted to go for the techy look. (ie: show off)

Most of the time they are left on. Only when I have guests who haven't seen or heard my M60's do I remove the grills. In addition, my 10 month old son is crawling now and he hasn't figured out (yet) what the speakers are. I don't want to encourage those little hands in any way possible!!!!

Heh, the last time I took the grills off was to take a pic for my Web page. That was several months ago. It's not something I have really cared about since my late 20's. Maybe Dallas is on to something.
