Perhaps switching to the 6.5" woofer would go a fair bit lower, I wonder if Ian's tried that one? (probably)

2xspds, you've said nothing wrong. Some people tend to complain when others make complete sense, they simply cannot comprehend forward thinking. And if I’ve insulted anybody that’s just the way it is, as there’s no law in Canada that says you’re feelings are protected. Colour me Canadian!

I would think you'd run into issues with cabinet volume, but I'm really not sure.

Very possible, Ken.

About the same dimensions and a little less weight... It's possible to build.

Assuming they're telling the truth with those specs, yeah.

I find it highly amusing that their $4000 surround speaker the P-27s is quoted as only being down to 72Hz +/- 3 db. With much bigger woofers and cabinet.

I'm not arguing that I should have bought that speaker Ken (because I had the choice and didn't), and I'm not saying that I trust their published responses more or less than Axioms. But, that is what they published, and it seems to get good reviews. This is my wish list, and I want an Axiom surround like the QS8 that can go down to at least 60Hz. I'd like to see Axiom try to do this, because I do believe in the company and trust their response curves.

I didn't mean to give the impression I was arguing with you about that. I'm just doing my usual skeptical bit. Tone is so difficult with text.

Also, I'll try to remember to bring this up at our next meeting. Not sure that I'll be able to tell you anything about what Axiom said (we do have an NDA), but I'll mention it to them.
