Hey Craig!

Let's see if I can get off on a better foot, eh?

I'll be interested to hear your candid assessment. My understanding is that there is a HUGE difference in size and cost between the Rocket setup you describe and the recently-installed Axioms.

I will look forward to hearing how satisfying you find the Axioms in that venue, especially relative to your most recent point of reference. Do you find that some subs mesh better with particular speaker models? i.e. would using a Hsu, SVS, Axiom, Rocket, etc. give you noticably different results with the M22's?

Thank you for contributing your thoughts.

- Tom

LMAO .. OK, Tom ... More listening results later. BTW ... You MAY find this interesting. I bought the Axioms in December, 2003 ... LONG before owning Rockets or Ascends ...

I could not find your post on AVS. Can you supply a link?

Craig, good to see you back posting. I seem to have trouble finding time to lurk-much less post lately. I would also be interested to hear your comments on the M22 paired with various subs. I'm inching closer to upgrading my Dayton 10" sub and researching Hsu, SVS, Outlaw, Rocket, and Axioms. The research that goes into the decision making process is a lot of fun for me, but I'd value your opinions on the various subs paired with the M22's.

It was actually a DOOZY of a thread ... it went silent for over amonth, then just re-surfaced. I was not the thread started, BTW ... but there sure were some fisticuffs ...

www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=503507

Ok... At one time someone had explained how to do a link here. There is a reason I like subwoofers and women better than I like computers. Subwoofers and women are easier to understand ...

I had never looked at AVS before. I have to admit, my first thoughts were "what an ugly site, who picked those colours, Craig deserves a lot of credit for even going there in the first place"

EDIT -- to make a link, put "url" at the front in square brackets, and "/url" at the end, also in square brackets.

Thanks ... It is funny, I remember when I first signed up on AVS ... and thinking the same thing about the color scheme. For those going in to read the thread, have fun with some of the ... wisdom being tossed out.

Not sure which color scheme you guys are talking about, but for those who are members, you do have a choice.

Click on 'User CP,"
Click on "Edit Options,"
Scroll down almost all the way to the bottom of the page to "Style Set."

You'll have a choice of AVS Black or AVS White. I use AVS White.

For those on our forum, who are not aware of it, we have choices as well (Thank you, Ray).

Click on "My Home,"
Scroll down to "Main Configuration,"
Click on "Edit" next to "Display preferences, number of shown threads, languages, colors... ."
The second item down will be "Which style sheet (skin) do you want to use for your display"?

You will find you have 9 choices. I use "The blues (Large Font), but please yourself.

Speaking of ... well... speakers, The first thing about putting the Axioms into the system, everything else stayed high end. This is $800 worth of LCR speakers with a $5000 subwoofer, $4500 pre/processor and power amp ... heck, the SURROUNDS are $1300.

We watched Spiderman and Blackhawk Down last night, and I had not told my son about any speaker changes. AFTER the movies, I asked what he thought about the sound - he shrugged and said "really good, why, did you change something?"

The M22/VP-150's are off to a GOOD start.
