Does Axiom make different logos for the speakers? Maybe metal ones vs the plastic. One came broke( this one went behing the at screenm so didn't care). I also broke one taking it off so I could invert it. A third broke on the ep 800 ic since the logo is right off the carpet and was gently knocked into.

BW, the frame(basket)of a driver should be strong enough to hold the active elements in proper position and shouldn't audibly "ring" when attached to the enclosure. If these criteria are satisfied, it doesn't make any difference what the frame is made of or what process was used in manufacturing it. Ian and Andrew have said that the stamped Axiom frames are fine and the die cast version has no audible benefit. There's no good reason, technologically or in practice, to doubt this.

The die cast frame metal is squirted into a form at high temperature and under high pressure. This takes time to form and cool down(as much as 10 minutes each). Stamping gives the metal one bang and that's it; a quicker and less expensive process. Other factors being equal, either process results in entirely satisfactory frames for speaker drivers.

You might put Ian in that group but I wouldn’t, and if you quoted the rest of the comment you wouldn't have missed that context. wink


I think you know my feelings of this company and it's employees as they are quite positive as noted by several posts in this thread alone, i would never intentionally compair Ian to the AV123 president who was fraudulent. In my attempt to contrast the two individuals, i did not proof my post close enough... I would hope you could spot a typo when you see it..

So to Clarify, I would not put Ian in the same group as said individual....

P.S., Sorry for the Typo Ian....

I wouldn't sweat it to much man... This thread is just like most of the others around here (insert off color funny comment)...

The real question is... Have you ordered the extra amplifiers you will need?

I will need 2 more channels.. However, i cant decide if i want to give my QS8's 250W or 150W, right now they are getting 250W.... My new speakers ARE getting 500W @4ohm each that has already been decided.
