How to Paint Speaker Grilles

The M80 Full-Range Loudspeakers won a Blue Moon award from 6 Moons.

Looking for hi-fidelity sound that doesn't take up any floor or shelf space? The new M22 On-Wall/In-Wall provides the kind of transparent, neutral, wide-range sound you expect from Axiom, without any of the compromises that plague other in-wall speakers. The M22 On-Wall/In-Wall hybrid speaker preserves the sonic clarity of its bookshelf equivalent, the M22, and adds a slim profile that is a perfect complement to today's modern low-profile plasma and LCD TV screens. The dual 5 1/4-inch aluminum cone woofers enable louder playback levels and greater power handling in larger rooms. Its output and exceedingly natural sound outperform any speaker in its class.

Other in-walls rely on the wall cavity to tune the bass output, resulting in a speaker whose performance varies from wall to wall and room to room, and may even produce distorted sound in neighboring rooms.

Overcoming these drawbacks, the M22 On-Wall/In-Wall features a fully integrated enclosure that recesses into the wall, combined with an attractive exterior baffle portion that keeps the speaker's woofer and tweeter away from the sound-degrading effects of the wall's front surface. The speaker ports are cleverly hidden at the base of the outer baffle.

A supplied self-clamping frame anchors the speaker firmly to the wall when the screws are tightened. The series is available in a variety of attractively-finished front baffles to suit any decor.

Recommended: You'll enjoy enhanced and extended deep bass response if you mate the M22 On-Wall/In-Wall with one of Axiom's powered subwoofers.




Professional Reviews

Industry Reviews

"The W22’s are definitely overachievers. These small unobtrusive speakers were able to fill my medium sized room with more than enough sound. The Axiom Audio W22 speakers mated with a good subwoofer are worthy of the term “audiophile”." -- Ray Adkins, Audioholics

"Unlike loudspeakers for which much is promised, but that end up being little more than patchwork designs, Axiom's W22 is an extremely well-thought-out speaker that gives you Axiom's trademark sound quality in a package much more convenient and spacing-saving than the norm. . . .dead-simple to install. . . .a unique solution for the audiophile who wants it all, but wants it on -- and in -- the wall."
-- Doug Schneider,

Customer Comments

Customer Comments about the M22 Family

Below are a few of the many reviews that our customers have been kind enough to send us.

I recently ordered a pair of M22tis and could not be more pleased. They look elegant, are well constructed, and, oh yeah, they sound incredible. It made me fall in love with 2-channel audio all over again. I recently ordered a VP 150 and am eagerly awaiting its arrival, and will soon continue to order until I've redone my bedroom theater with a full 7.1 of Axiom speakers. Keep up the great work! You have won yourselves a long time fan and customer.
-- Ben C., TN USA


The Speakers are Great. Thanks for the quick service. I did Audio for CBS TV for 35 years and I have to say your speakers are a great value.
-- Jim R., ME


I read the reviews, saw the awards, and liked the style but had never heard them. I thought I would give it a shot, but had not had a chance to put in my order. My wife bought the M22 bookshelf speakers for the heck of it (without me knowing), knowing I have wanted a new set of speakers. I dragged my wife along to listen to many options over the last couple of years, and I must say the M22 are the best bookshelf speakers we have heard! The first night I had them I did an A/B test with my Polks using Frank Sinatra's Christmas cd and I think it was the first time my wife commented on a speaker's performance. Thank you, Axiom, for making such a wonderful speaker at an outstanding price. They produce a wonderful, crisp, clear sound listening to metal, Sinatra, classical or movies. Keep up the good work, and thanks to my loving and gorgeous wife.
-- Charles D., MN

FYI, those little Axiom speakers are amazing. They are replacing my Martin Logan Aerius($2,500/pair) and I'm not sure I don't like the M22 better.
-- Bill T., OH


I just want to let you know that I am completely satisfied with my purchase. My M22s (and stands) were shipped quickly and arrived with no problems. I hooked these bad boys up and my jaw dropped! It sounded like Diana Krall was right there in my living room! Amazing! I only initially purchased the pair to trial the Axiom sound. I love the sound and, let's just say, I will soon have a complete AXIOM 7.1 system. Thanks Axiom!
-- Joe M., CA


Just got the speakers and I've found I'm falling in love with my music all over again. Hearing things I haven't heard before. The sound is very clean without being austere, warm without being wooly. 5-1/4 woofers give amazing bass reproduction, even without a subwoofer, which I may decide to add eventually. But since I don't listen as much to rock/pop as I do to jazz and orchestral, these have plenty of oomph with no distortion. And they look great too. I can't wait to go home and put on another disc!
-- Andy S., NY USA
