Are your Axiom QS8's 6 or 8 ohms?

    Just got mine, and they say 8 ohms on the back... but the Axiom web site shows 6 ohms. Anyone with the QS8's, what does yours say on the back?

    thanks

    Its suppose to be 8 ohms. Do you ahve other Axiom's to go with those surrounds ? What do yo think ? I was thinking of getting them for my new H/T set up. I was concerned about the look at sound of them. I've heard and read some good things about these speaker company recently.Let me know what you think.[​IMG]

    I absolutely love my Axiom M50 mains. I've had them a while, and just got the VP150 and the QS8's in today. Haven't even hooked them up yet! I'll let you know what I think later on tonight or tomorrow. [​IMG]

    Thanks Marc. Any idea why they are marked incorrectly? Axiom's mistake I guess.

    No idea Ben, sorry. I have seen them marked 6 ohms and 4 ohms in the past but Ian told me they were six ohms (actualy 5.5 to be exact).
