Hey all, Since I found this place, I just can't stop coming up with questions to ask. I'll shut up eventually...I think. Been looking over the reviews for the Axiom M3ti speakers. Very impressive. Seems to compare favorably with the Ascend 170s (in reviewers comments about SQ, etc), though I haven't seen any direct comparisons...not that I remember, anyway. I've noticed a lot of you saying you got your M3ti's from the Factory Store "B stock" and the cabinet had one little scratch on it or something minor like that. My worry is that I'd get a set where a woofers' dustcap was pushed in...or worse, a hole in the cone itself, damaged binding posts, etc. Is this possible or probable? How well do they inspect their B stock? Of course I could email Axiom and ask, but any manufacturer will be inclined to say what you want to hear. I'd rather hear from YOU, the people that bought them.
