I think it's easy to get too hung up on the measurements. Especially when we're talking about things like "transparency".
Ninja, I will respectfully disagree with your assessment that the scale on the graphs doesn't matter. You've gone to great pains to measure things, to assert that those measurements have value, and to defend the integrity of those measurements. To then - within the presentation of the findings - skew the scale of the graphs subverts your earlier efforts.
I am amused that Ninja's decision to make a fairly significant change to the crossover point is getting so little play. I'd posit that Ian certainly considered different crossover points for this speaker, and that his research and his measurements led him to prefer the one in place. There's no reason why somebody else might not prefer a different design. I just don't think it shows a great deal of professional respect to suggest that Ian got everything else right about this speaker but forgot to even check to see if a different crossover point might have made a meaningful and positive difference.
I just don't buy it.
That being said, whatever makes folks happy is fine with me. Part of my personal enjoyment with Axiom speakers is not only their accurate sonic reproduction, but also the ongoing sense that they are a product of a unified creative vision.
