I always wondered why this 3-way 1"/5.25"/6.5" configuration wasn't used for the M50 instead of the 1"/6.5"/6.5". The M50 really seems to be missing something in the midrange - to me anyway - that I figured the 5.25 replacement would add.

And the M22 tower (could be "M55"?) sounds really good. Great aesthetic with that slim design I think, to fit in to tight spaces, bedrooms, something like that. (In addition of course to what would assuredly be great sound.)

Can those of us that bought the M22 trade up to the new M22 tower if and when it comes out?

Now I have myself all worked up and I don't want to wait until May for this to be brought up. I want it now! uuuuuuuuugggggg

Both configurations mentioned sound like perfect additions, or replacements, to the line, although for me I really like the idea of a sexy sleek tower based on the M22.

Having said that and just to throw another option out there - to keep the sleek look you could go with 3 5.25" drivers instead of a 6.5". One for the mid and 2 for bass. I suppose this would be a skinny M60. Not quite as much bass, but I bet it would be really tight, fast bass. Boy, I am getting more excited as I type. Please do something quickly.

Keep the pressure on. Lets hear from all you Axiom fans.

Oh, and did I say I wanted it in a Natural Oak finish. Sort of a Honey Oak would be ok.

OK, what is taking so long? I don't see these on the Products page yet. How long can it take to run the CAD program, cut up some wood, slap it all together, run some audio analysis, pass it through the quality and safety processes, get the marketing stuff done, move them into production and sell, sell, sell. I can't wait forever.

A lot of you have read this post. I would really like to hear your thoughts or opinions on a tower version of the M22. I really think it would be a great addition to the line up for those who have a good sub. What do you think? Don't be shy.

Considering many of us have the M22s on stands in the $75-100 price range, adding that cost to the M22 towers shouldn't make the M22 towers cost much more. Additional drivers would though. I think it's a question of cost from the consumer side anyway.

IMHO it would be so similar to the M60 that it would not drive additional sales, but would cause additional customer confusion.

It would not be like the M60 since the M60 has 2 x 6.5, 1 x 5.25 and a tweet. It would be like the M50 2 x 6.5 and a tweet but with smaller drivers at 2 x 5.25 and a tweet. There would be confusion with the M50 but people who opt for clean clarity great mids and highs would go for the skinny M22 Tower for music and those who want oohhhmmmppff would go with the M50 great for HT. Its a matter of taste and setup.
