I was thinking that a tower similiar to a M40, but maybe an inch or so slimmer, and configured like a M22 would be a killer main. A little more bass extension but with similar detail and accuracy. I am not an audio expert and don't know if you would get the same kind of performance, but it sure sounds like a great idea. I would much prefer a sleek tower over a bookshelf and speaker stand. Anyone else had similiar thoughts?

It's called the M60.

Yes, that would definitely work. But, I am thinking of it as more of a replacement for, or in addition to, the M40 for those that don't want a full range speaker like the M60, but want the clear clean detail of the M22 or M60 in a smaller sleeker tower. Again, I am not an expert, but I think a tower of this type with the M22 configuration would provide a richer and fuller sound while maintaining the accuracy of the M22. I have a very good sub and would prefer something like this as a main instead of a bookshelf and stand....and at a lower price point than the M60.

AJ, I think that what you're proposing can be viewed as analogous to the M3/M40. The M40 can be viewed as a M3 in a bigger enclosure tuned for more bass. Something similar could be done to the M22 and would be interesting.

Exactly. Actually, I started to reference that comparison, but left it out. Anyone else, besides me, think this would be great addition to the Axiom family?

I would agree. A taller enclosure full box height on the M22 with still only 1 tweet and the same 2 main drivers same size. The width would be the same. Tall and skinny. That would look like a Totem speaker configuration. It would not have the same fullness of a M60. It would have the same tonal sound but just a tiny bit extention on the bass.

Works for me...I'd prefer a tower, but M60's are too much $ so I had to stick with the 22.

Just a little more bass extension for a slightly richer sound and no stands. Just a baby brother, or sister, to the M60. Maybe even a little taller than the M40 to get the drivers closer to ear level, if that really matters. I would love to hear that something like this was already in the works. Keep the opinions coming.

There's also room for the "M55", or missing link tower with one tweeter, one 6.5" woofer, and one 5" woofer, although how that would sound I haven't the foggiest.

Hi all,

Duly noted. I'll raise the subject at our big Axiom meeting up in the wilderness in May.

Regards,
