I would love to hear some M50s...they do intrigue be quite a bit...

Currently, where I have my studio monitors placed, I would say they are about 8-10 inches from the back wall...and pretty close to the corners...and they have ANNOYED the heck outa me when I am recording bass because of that damn hump!

I subbed out the M3s for M22s last week just to see what it sounded like...MAAAAANNN...I NEED M22s in my studio!! I am saving up for some black custom ones...we'll see what happens...


I still stand by my comment that M3s would not help his situation...I don't think it has anything to do with the woofers, only the tweeters. I just think the "axiom" sound from the tweeters is to JBS' preference...we shall see!!!

I think JBS should order all the tower speakers and decide in his own room

The tweeter's response is far more subdued in the M3 than the 150.

well that is something that I did not know...where is this info? just from the curve? If this is the case, then M50's and M60's are something he would probably like...

Mojo,

Interesting. I'm definetly willing to try them if this is the case. How do you know this?

Take a look at the frequency response graphs of the 150 vs. the M3 on the products page. There's a 6 to 7 dB difference.

Hutzal,

Have you tried M3's as centers instead of the M2's?

I was around during the prior resistor discussions that took place here. I also used the resistors for a little while on my M22s way back when. Axiom used to provide them willingly upon request. That said, I have not used the resistors on my M22s for several years.

Basically, around the time I requested them, the anti-Axiom rhetoric on different boards was at its peak. And I kind of got caught up in the hype of people calling Axioms bright, etc. So I asked for the resistors, used them for awhile, and while I still enjoyed the Axioms, I felt a little of the magic was missing for me. So I took the resistors off, put them in a drawer, and haven't thought about them since.

But anyway, as to the current problem, I just don't think there is any magic answer. Sure, the resistors may be a partial solution, but maybe Axioms are just not the best speaker for jbsengineer. I'll see if I can find my resistors so you have some idea at least what type they were. And they did come ready to attach to the tweeter, which was a very simple process. Good luck.


NO. Don't say that, !! I love my Axioms. They are for me, or atleast I think so. I love every aspect about them! I may be a little too sensitive to the tweeters I guess... , \:\(

jbs,

I originally ordered M3s for centres instead of the M2s. I found that I did not like their layed back qualities when compared to the M22s...I had one mounted way up really close to the ceiling, and it was exaggerating that 100hz to 150hz bass hump with some vocals...the M2s are much better in that regard.

When I had them upstairs and about 4 feet from walls, they sounded really great, no problems with them at all.

The M2s are more forward than the M3s, its a quality that I much prefer, however, the M3s may work well in your situation.

I like the sound of my M3 centers. One above and one below my SXRD.
