Thanks Jakewash. I have read some of the reviews you've posted before. I suppose I will just audition them again and see what I think. I was exceptionally impressed the last time I heard the 22's.

I guess I am going about this all wrong having got the subwoofer first.

Right now I have a pair of Infinity floor standing speakers. They aren't bad, good detail, but I find they require louder volumes to get that detail.

That was how I felt about the M60's vs the M80s or even the M22s, the M60s need more volume to match the detail levels and open themselves up. When I know listen to speakers, most sound muted compared to my collection.

Dave, when I auditioned at Axiom, I found the M22+sub to be remarkably similar to the M60 (ignoring the extra bottom end the sub delivers). The M22 + sub filled the 12x20x8 demo room nicely to 85db, a decent volume level. They would give you all the volume you could ever want in your room.

If I ever feel the need to audition speakers, I will do more listening at lower levels. I did all my auditioning at 75-90db so I never noticed what you are talking about.

Awesome replies guys! Such a great community.

Well the advantage of the 22's is I can get them a lot sooner. I am a sucker for going as loud as can be, but my wife and daughter tend not to take that so well.

Thanks again for the input everyone. I will post pictures when I get the EP350!

My Algonquins came in yesterday. Since they are basically the M3's I decided to test them out with the EP500's in the theater. I disconnected the M80s and put the Algonquins in their place. My general contractor was here at the time to take a listen (he is thinking of upgrading his speakers).

They sounded really nice, and my general contractor like the sound (he said they sounded much better than his system). I could tell he wasn't floored though, and said the center channel (the VP150) sounded a bit too loud. I immediately replaced the Algonquins with the M80's, and replayed the same track. He was stunned at the sound (I have to say, the difference was amazing). He spent about 15 minutes listening to different tracks, and said that the center did not sound too loud anymore. He also said it was weird how he could hear every detail of the music (which he had not heard before) and how full the sound was.

I've never heard the M22s, but I'm sure every step up in the chain adds to a more "full" sound.

Haha, good example. If I didn't know any better, I would assume you're all out to make me broke \:\)

I am really looking forward to the EP350. So many people seem to recommend SVS or HSU, "better value", has me a little concerned. Though EP350 V3 seems highly praised. This will be my first experience with an Axiom sub. Here's hoping it stands up to the quality of the rest of the speakers.

Out of curiosity, is anyone using a single 350 for a large room?

I've compared one 350, to twin 350's, to twin 350's plus a 600, and in all cases was very happy in my hugo mungo cavern. \:\)

Good to hear!

I am a little obsessed with bass. Not boomy or overly loud, I just enjoy the experience of things shaking. Haha.
