Hi James,

Being a massive PMC fan myself, an MB2i owner, are you using your IB2's as a reference point or are you trying to achieve a different presentation.

They certainly look very nice though  :)

Hi Vipers

Yes PMC really turned me on to what can be done with Active loudspeakers so I thought it might be fun to develope an Active reference speaker for myself and I think the PMC is certainly the one I would use as my reference :thumb:

So James, will this be sold as a complete system? Amps, speakers, crossovers, cd, bdp, etc?

Excellent speakers in my opinion. A friend of mine has the passive 40s I think they are called and they sound great in his setup :thumb:

If I was to market them they would be sold with the crossover as a package allowing you to use Bryston (my preference of course) or your own amps as long as the gains of the amps matched.

Oh alright. Thanks for the info. Sounds good. I take it these will be over 12k, true?

Really not sure yet on price but I am hoping without amps around 8000

James,
Based on your experience,if I ask you which speaker would be your choice for life time active or electrostatics? What would be your answer?

Yes of course - we all know Canadians build the best speakers  :lol:

Would it perhaps be a little speaker company located on HWY 60 near  the west side of Algonquin park?

Cool! I pass by that way several times a year on my way to Parry Sound.  Driving by I always thought what a cool place to work.....I could commute by canoe! Nice to see you working with another local company James, good luck with the speakers.

P.S. I am heading back up that way for vacation in a couple of weeks, If I stopped in would there be a demo pair lurking about or would security arrest me? ; )

Cheers,

I knew it! Crazy enough, it was the white coloured drivers that were leading me in that direction.

Looking at the Axiom web pages there is nothing mentioning the driver build quality. (cast frames?  voice coils, ect) Can you give any details about the chosen transducers for your design?  It looks to be a great project James..thanks.

The Axiom drivers are all excellent in design and are all custom to Axiom speakers. I looked around a lot for a partner on this and I was mighty impressed with the Axiom company and the science behind there loudspeakers (they even have their own Anechoic Chamber in the factory).  Also the engineer behind a lot of the Mirage products (API) is now one of the designers at Axiom and I am working with him on this project.

The comments are indicative though of how people just dismiss a product like Axiom because it does not appear to cost enough.  I can tell you the M80 - which I have in my room now is one hell of a speaker. :thumb:
