Some people have no problem making a quick decision. I wonder why that is.

Bob, once you've made the decision, just have faith in it. Listen, I started looking at Axiom a long time ago, well about 3-4 months ago. I looked at numerous speakers, just for my own peace of mind. There's nothing wrong with taking time to decide, in fact you should inform yourself before making that decision. Once you DO make the decision, stick with it, you've done your research.

Congrats on the purchase, good idea to quickly order before everyone starts suggesting 80's ;\)

If you want to check out the QS8's let me know as I'm in Burlington and they're fantastic speakers for surround and multi channel music.

If you want to check out the QS8's let me know as I'm in Burlington and they're fantastic speakers for surround and multi channel music.

I would love to get the 80's, But my current built in has 2 openings for speakers that I built to accept my old speakers, 24"x 10".I could rework the openings.After talking to my wife she advises,not a good idea with the little ones playing target practice on them.My current openings are off the floor 48"
I was told to run the m22 upside down to get the tweeters at ear level..

My current speakers sound descent,but I think lack highs and mids.They have one tweeter and a 7" sub and are 15 years old.
As far as the QS8's go.I would love to hear them .I am trying to convince my wife first though.I have to tell her about the center channel speaker purchase and let that sink in and let her hear the new setup.I am sure she will like it.
I did a lot of research about different speakers.I was torn between axiom for there rav reviews and Paradigm studio 40 v4 . I did listen to them in 2 different stores.Both times I was impressed, but sounded different each time.Excellent in 1 location and ok in the other .
So best place to listen, is in my own enviroment..

Very nice built-in look. Clean lines!

I don't think the M80's would work well for you because of the rear ports on the M80's.

The m22's also have a bass port in back, not sure if they will work well in an enclosed area like that, the port allows low frequencies to filter into the room. I'm suprised Axiom didn't say anything about that when you called them...

Maybe you would have been better off with the W22's or the new T2's, you might have been able to incorporate them into those openings as they are designed for inwall/onwall mounting.

I'm with Randy, as soon as I saw that picture the W series was the first thing that I thought of all it would need is some minor work to close off the opnings to the correct size of the mounting bracket. They would look incredible with that set up. The other option would be the T series, in-wall. I was thinking the T80 and simply remove the panels at the bottom of the columns to get them mounted,, if there is enough depth to handle a a ~20" depth. Either way I beleive these would give you better overall performance as the rear port on the M22 will not be much of a factor and most likely alter the sound of the M22. Since you have already ordered them it will be interesting to read your opinion of them placed in that area. Just remember you can always send them back and trade up to the 'W' series.

+1 on the room. Very nice.
+1 on the w22. That seems like the ideal solution.

panabrite, you might call Axiom if they have not shipped yet and rethink your order.
