I wasn't picking on you, so I hope you don't take my comments in that light. I just made an observation, just like you did...
It's quite amusing really. Kinda reminds me of my day job with my direct reports. I listen to their complaints, make adjustments to sooth their gripes, to only get more grief from others. It's a never ending cycle.
People have also been bitching on this sight about Axiom not offering a "premium" line of speakers and that they need to step up their game. It sounds like they are about to get just what they've been asking for. My crystal ball tells me that there will be a flood of folks finding something to bitch about with the new line after they are released. - The wheel just keep turning and we will get to see the same cog, over and over again. It certainally isn't worth getting upset about.
I didn’t take any offence but just wanted to make sure no one who only read part of the thread thought that I was in any way trashing Axiom. Funny how people have so often assumed that, without noticing in my signature that I own 14 Axiom speakers.
You are correct about the complaints, and they will come from the usual suspects in the usual places with the vast majority never even having listened to the speakers. This is inherent with things that break from convention like up/down facing midranges or two tweeters and even more generally a thing called brand tribalism.
