Just to let those who have not ordered Factory Direct. Axiom charges your CC immediately when your order is placed. I was not aware of this policy , as I have always been accustomed to being charged by internet company's once the order had been shipped. Especially since my order was 3 weeks away from being shipped, this was a bit of a surprise to me. The reason they said was to put you in an order cue.

I just let them know, a simple explanation in the receipt or web site would have been nice.

Looking forward to these to arrive, I believe they will be shipping next week!

It does state that your CC will be charged right on the FO page it is in the top section right below the bold Save 10%. You just have to read the fine print.

It's not even fine print. It's the same size as the rest of the text on the page.

I was speaking in relation to the size of the large bold 'Save 10%' which the eye catches so much easier. I was also trying to not make him feel bad for missing it.

Trust me- it is well worth the wait and well worth the advanced charge!

It's no big deal at all, just not expected.

Did I say I was blind!

I know it will be worth both the advance charge & wait

I've been reading over at another forum that people are waiting months for there speakers to arrive from av123 in some cases.

That must be gut wrenching.

The term gut wrenching still makes me shudder. I got hit in the gut with a big wrench once. Your emote face is actually very accurate.

No it wasn't anything exiting like a fight for my life. I was holding the top part of a 1 1/4" bolt while the mechanic was air wrenching from the bottom. He asked for another size socket and I let go to go get it for him. He accidentally gave it a shot of air and boom, a big wrench rotates into my stomach. No serious damage as it but I had one manly looking bruise.

I knew it up front since the ETA is listed right when ordering from the factory outlet, but it was still hard, and I still made multiple calls to Axiom to ask if I had gotten bumped up on the list... Nope, still had to wait 12+ weeks. \:\( I love them though.., \:\)

All that (limited selection on non-American) beer was good for something, eh? ;\)

Classic... that earned a darn-near "gut-wrenching" laugh from me. \:D

Well back then, I had a stomach of steel from Martial Arts training but in reality, I was lucky that it was a strong but glancing blow. I make no Houdini claims there. Today, I could only hope that the beer induced padding would make up for the loss of muscle tightness.

I knew about this when I ordered couple months ago and it was not a fine print.
