I know this thread is about the Crown amps, but thanks to @Pogre I am reliving some terrible memories (of the 1st World Problems variety). Around '02 or so, I purchased a pair of Axiom Audio M22 V2s based on a plethora of online reviews (Soundstage's being the most prominent).\n\nThe big takeaway from the reviewers was their "neutrality". If their collective idea of "neutrality" meant "boring" then they got it right. Gosh, I hated those speakers! Maybe things have improved in Axiom country (and no offense to any Axiom owners - that's just my experience YMMV [greatly]) but I am not in a hurry to find out.\n\nOn a positive note, I guess, is that they manufacture for Bryston - Bryston then slaps their name on 'em and charges accordingly:\n\nThat's each.\n\nThat double tweeter on the tower speaker probably doesn't present that audible of a problem, but it is still so dumb. It's just there for effect, not any useful purpose. If you want more dynamic range from a tweeter, just install a more powerful tweeter rather than adding another one which causes all kinds of interference issues on the vertical axis. That also allows you to build a smaller enclosure which saves money. What an enforced error. It just irks me so much.
