John I will let you know, good idea, as the M22 and EP600 didn't have that warmth of the M60, it still felt to be missing something, very good but not full. This would suggest it's the 6 1/2" driver that is warming things up.


The 500 & 600 take deep dives at 100Hz. The 400 though keeps steady up to 150Hz and then rolls off. Maybe the 400 is a better match with the 22s at the present moment. Jason, we should have pulled out my Sony sub which has a 3dB point at 170Hz and then rolls off at 6dB/octave after that. This is something we can try next time.

Oh yeah...let me know too please.

As per Axiom product description, the EP-400 was specifically designed to work in "small rooms" with bookshelf speakers.

Thanks guys for all of the insightful comments,and yes I am disgusted with Bose,and yes I did sit on my couch wondering
what the M80's sound like,because the M60's sound so nice.

Well just imagine the vocals and mids sounding more forward and not sitting just under/behind the music. The M80s and M22s present the vocals and mids first then the music etc. this gives them a carity that is unsurpassed, at least in the Axiom line up.

That sounds like a much better listening experience.Maybe in a couple of years I can talk my wife into a combo like that.For now I am going to enjoy my new M60's and hear all of my Cd's
in a whole new way.Thanks Chris

Jason, you should consider a profession in audio reviewing. You're the most eloquent mechanic I've ever met :-).

Mojo thanks! I would love a job as an audio reviewer, right up there with a mythbuster! Hey, I wonder if they would try out audio cables and set the record straight.

Chris, yes the M60s are really good, not sure if I would say the combo is a much better experience, just different. You have to enjoy that forward sound in the first place, which I do and have become accustomed to thanks to my M22s. I honestly think if I had ordered the M60s, my wife would have told me to send them back, as the vocals are not as dramatically emphasized as on the M22/M80.

Jason,Yes you are correct the vocals on my M60s seem to be in the middle of the intruments not to far forward.But what amazes
me about these speakers is that I hear sutle sounds in the songs that I have never heard before.Its like I have to listen to my whole music collection over again to here what the songs really sound like,Its like the music has way more feeling now, more intense.Chris

That detail that you're picking out is even more magnified with the 80s.
