After speaking at length with the owner of the local car audio shop that we purchased my wife's gear from we stumbled onto the topic of home theater. I told him I owned axiom and he said he used to sell it back in the day when he sold Home audio stuff as well. Maybe early 90's or late 80's?


I think I remember someone saying axiom used to sell stuff in stores? is that correct or is he full of it?

No, that's true. When I was auditioning some Monitor Audio's down in Mississauga, the owner's son told me they used to sell Axiom's several years ago.

Before they went under in 2005, Laserland In Oakville, Ontario, just west of Toronto, was the prime retailer of AXIOM in the area. Obviously, what has happened, with the rise of the internet, Axiom, along with other companies we know about who started right from the beginning marketing their products this way, realized by doing so you didn't have to compete with the onslaught of other brands in the store and their sales staff's personal preferences.

The rest, as we say, is history.

I didn't know they were sold in stores here in the U.S. Of all the audio stores I went in back then I never heard of Axiom.

As far as I can tell the owner of this shop is pretty good at hunting down quality sound that is less popular than some "big box" brands but have much more bang for your buck. He has several car audio speakers that I had never heard of that sound really great, and with research it turns out that a lot of other people online think so too.

I know they have some certified installers in the states, but it was my understanding they sold through dealers back in the day in Canada, but under a different label, not Axiom. At least that is my understanding.

Randy, Axiom did make a line of speakers under a different name that I believe were sold at Radio Shack in Ontario, the name escapes me.

Axioms were also sold under their own name at local stores.

The local Audiotronics-Colourbox (now 2001 Audio-Video) store in Burlington is where I first saw the MZero, VPZero and the QS2. I am still kicking myself for not buying it. The QS2's were amazing, very tiny about 5"x5"x4".

I first heard M3's in Toronto at Replay Electronics, Dec 29 2001, never looked back.
