In reply to:
I use three as fronts and center and couldn't be happier. Only problem is my new listening room is just a bit too large for them and they seem to be strained some on the more demanding passages. Otherwise they're great, and easy to live with speakers.
How big is your room ?
Based on the m3s specs and descriptions in Axiom's website I guess it might not be unexpected if they do not fill my fairly large room - 16x16 with a vaulted ceiling sloping from 12ft down to 9 ft. and with the left side wide open to the kitchen.
so it's about 2500+ c.ft but with the kitchen it's close to about 3500+ sq. ft.
My LP is about 14ft from the fronts.
However... my current speakers are JBL N24II satellites and they can fill the room though they also sound strained at really high volumes (also when my wife is having a Karaoke session
) -- so spec-wise they probably won't fill the room as much as I wanted to--but I'll see (hear)... I might just be in for a nice surprise.
On the other hand, I'm hoping to get the m22s in the future when/if the room arrangment changes.
