I think if properly placed, that 350 should do well in that room.

Did your wife surprise you or did she tell you before hand that she was buying a subwoofer for you? You are very lucky, I wish there were more women like that out there:).

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.
When we were at Mojo's comparing the v2s and the Ninja's I commented on how the v2 with the EP600 sounded somewhat like I remember the M60s sounding, so my impressions could be skewed by my M22v1s, as I swear they have more upper end/forwardness than the v2s, although Alan as stated the M22 is virtually unchanged. I can only find the XO layout to be different but looks to be the same parts. It could just be me

Well, Jay, I recently picked up a pair of M22v2s and I have to say I don't get any of the piercing that I got from yours at Mojo's. I found yours to be very precise and forward, but I could never decide if I liked the sound or not. My new v2s, however, I like very much and they have supplanted the M2s in my 'new' 5.1 system for the computer.

As for the 350, it works very well in my large room (30x13x8 opening into the rest of the house). It did take me a couple of weeks to warm up to it, however. My older, smaller, cheaper sub seemed to have more rumble, but after a direct comparison this turned out to be merely distortion. The 350 has plenty of rumble (and much cleaner rumble at that). As far as Hsu and SVS being "better value", that's mostly for Americans. Shipping can be killer for large, square, heavy boxes.

Dave, congrats on the fantastic surprise. If she did that truly out of the blue w/o even asking you, she is an amazing woman indeed. \:D

Thanks for the reassurance, now I don't feel quite so crazy.

Mark , when are you coming back through Calgary? We should GTG again when you do.

I may swing down in Dec, hard to say, but I'll definitely let you guys know.

Yeah, she actually did it out the blue. I kind of caught on due to the specific questions she asked. I am a very lucky man. Maybe she just got sick of me talking about buying Axioms for nearly eight years now. \:D

It's great to hear that people are having positive experiences with the 350. I think I am set on the 22's.

The only other issue is that I am not sure how much I will be able to "test" the sub at my current house. Meaning, due to the proximity of neighbors I am not sure how loud I can crank it. Would I hear if there were any issues with the sub at low volumes? I very much doubt there would be any issue, but I am a little paranoid sometimes.

The M22s & 350 should sound great together.

If there was a major flaw with the 350 then it would be apparent at low volumes. I would imagine you won't have too many angry neighbors if you cranked it up for a bit during the day on the weekend to stress test it.
