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


Have you compared them to a VP150 or M22 before?

I had a VP150 before my M3s and was able to compare the sound before I shipped back the VP150.

You have to realize that I like the sound of the M3s. I have 3 pair!

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. Good luck.


Out of the 140 or so (thus far) very helpful replies to this persons obvious speaker troubles this is probably the single best result for him/her at the moment. Every probable solution has been exhausted by numerous knowledgeable members, including the removal of tweeters, adding resistors and so forth?

Maybe it's time to raise the white flag.

Well, there are other solutions too. Like 0.1mH inductors that he could put on the tweeters. I'm sure someone from Axiom would like to beat me with a stick right about now :-).

Hey; I do too!

....well; the number of drivers also adds up to twelve!!

Yup; the M3 for center duties is a real winner! Even more fun crossed at 60! \:D

I see you have M80s as well, quite the mix of different sonic signatures. Not so sure I would like it, (I sent back V1 QS4s becuase the tweeters were different and sounded a little off) but obviously you do and thats all that matters.

Care to elaborate on the M80 M3 center pairing?

I haven't heard a VP100 or 150 with my M50s, but I've heard from lots of folks who have them with their M3s or M50s and they all say they sound just fine. Axiom even sells them that way in their packages of course.

I guess the 5.25s and 6.5s go quite well together. And of course they all use the same tweeters.

But the tweeters are crossed and equalized differently.

I am sure they sound very nice.

You said they all use the same tweeters as if to imply that they all have the same tweeter response. The tweeter response however depends not only on the tweeter itself but also the cross-over frequency and the subsequent equalization.
