He also said that the owner of the company is running 4 ohm speakers as well that are far more expensive than Axioms, and has no problems. He does not think it is the m80s. Only time will tell.




I don't think expense is a good way to measure quality, but that's just my opinion. The guy didn't need to bring that up.

I'm glad that there taking care of you!

Hi Randy, sorry to hear about your luck, hope it gets fixed soon. I have the MPS1 and have a 20x15x8 Ht that is totally dead, i.e., soundblocked, cloth walls etc. I was driving the Klipsch Rf83 with my Yamaha Rxv2500 as pre/pro to 100db with no probs..volume would be at up to -2 depending on source recording. Then added the EMO DMC1 and now the Eagles Farewell tour DVD for example plays at 95db at a setting of -32!!!!..lol..so something is different on the Yammy, I was at -6.
I will let you know how the MPS1 handles the M80's when I get them on Thursday although I may not be cranking them to 115 db at my listening position which is 12' from the speakers. I like it loud but, holy moly? I may try it out though and see what happens.
Hope you get it figured out

Regards, Chris

tleigh,

Lonnie was only responding to my question if the problem is driving 4ohm speakers. He just mentioned that the owner had no issues, as well as thousands of other people. Axiom makes great speakers, but there are many brands out there in a higher league and do cost much more. And, there are some that can't hold a candle to Axiom, that cost much more.

chris, that is interesting about the difference from -6 to -32 just by adding the DMC-1. I'm anxious to hear your findings.

You must admit it is a little odd that an employee of a budget amp company would bring up the cost of speakers in any context. I find that just a bit odd.

Yeah Randy, amplifiers vary in their gain and preamps vary in their output at a given setting, so the number on the volume control for a given loudness can be all over the place. Having a lower number is just the result of design decisions and isn't of any particular significance.

Randy, just a thought. What gauge speaker wire are you using and how long are the runs?

Thanks for the thought, however, this should not be the issue. I have good quality 12 AWG wire all the way around. The run lengths are insignificant for my situation.
