"Although Axiom speakers may not be well known outside of Canada, their history dates back to around 1980, and they have won numerous awards in Canada for excellence in speaker design. Axiom put to use groundbreaking research on loudspeakers and human hearing conducted at the National Research Council in Ottawa, Ontario. These speakers have an identical 1"" hybrid titanium tweeter and tiny 3.5"" aluminum midrange/bass driver. Axiom calls their tweeter ""hybrid"" because it combines a 1"" dome with a 1/2"" voice coil, unlike most tweeters that have the same diameter dome and voice coil. This tweeter is a step up on that in most budget systems, which usually come with 1/2"" tweeters. For the price of these speakers they are great buy because of the sound quality and build quality they have.Don't Forget about our 1 year full value trade-up policy!
