I used to say the same thing, until I bought an EP350. There's a huge difference. I didn't really care for it at first, but now it's hard to get by without it. If you live in an apartment, or share with other non-bass lovers, then I would understand also.

Edit: I turn the Subwoofer off when I crank it up really loud, like when I'm in another room on a treadmill, otherwise about all I can hear in the other room is bass.

Does Axiom only post positive reviews for their products? I've never seen a negative review.

I'd say that probably all speaker manufacturers post only positive reviews. I've posted negative things about my experiences with Axiom speakers in the forums here. I guess I was expecting too much from the flat on-wall speakers. I love the box speaker sound. The M22's much better than the M3's. But that is because I liked the extra detailed sound of the M22's.

I don't think ANY manufacturer is going to post negative reviews of their product, that wouldn't make good business sense. However, I give Axiom full credit for not shutting down a couple of threads I've seen where it was clear that certain persons had an axe to grind for whatever reason.

I'm gonna take a 24 hour break from listening to any music at all. Before the M3's go back early next week I'll give them one more shot tomorrow after a break from music. I really want to keep them but not if I can't get into their "sound." I can't give up on them just yet.

Jerry, do you have a Paradigm or Monitor Audio dealer near you? I would suggest that you give those a listen as well and if they are not to your liking, you may find you prefer a more subdued speaker/rolled off highs, as some have mentioned already.

You could ease yourself into the flatter frequency response of the M3s, by starting with the treble pulled down a little on your receiver. Every day increase it a bit, until you have the controls flat again.

I don't know if your receiver has this or not, but on the Pioneer, it's called X-Curve. It allows you to tame down the high end, but it looks like it does it a little better than just turning down the treble would be, providing a more gradual roll off for a more flatter freq. response.
