How to Paint Speaker Grilles

Looking for hi-fidelity sound that doesn't take up any floor or shelf space? The new M3 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 M3 On-Wall/In-Wall hybrid speaker preserves the sonic clarity of its bookshelf equivalent, the M3, and adds a slim profile that is a perfect complement to today's modern low-profile plasma and LCD TV screens. The large 6 1/2-inch aluminum cone woofer produces satisfying bass output in medium to small rooms.

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 M3 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 well 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.

Why not audition these speakers in your own home? The M3s come with a 30-day in-home trial, a five-year warranty and free shipping.







Professional Reviews

Industry Reviews of the M3 Family

"Despite their slender size — about 3½ inches deep — the speaker pair had no problem providing a full, rich sound field from a wide range of CDs. They more than held their own in home theater usage. Bass was particularly satisfying. . ."
-- John Schultz, Kansas City Star


"The performance left us speechless... The M3's would work splendidly in a two-channel stereo system or as the main speakers in Axiom's Epic Master home theater speaker system. With wonderful performance and very attractive looks, all at a great price, you can't go wrong with the Axiom M3 bookshelf speakers."
-- J. Walker Clarke, Consumer Guide


"The Axiom speaker sounded very good at low volume levels and jaw dropping at high levels. These speakers can lull you or rock you; it's your choice."
-- Ray Adkins, Audioholics


"Anybody looking for high quality, very low cost loudspeakers, should listen to the Axiom's - good luck finding anything remotely as good for the price."
-- A. Colin Flood,
"the level of resolved detail the M3v3 provide across the spectrum is pretty dang astounding. . . I was blown away to find out they were $348, especially when considering their performance."
-- Adam LaBarge,


"Through every type of music that I threw at them, the M3s performed far beyond my expectations and I am still taken aback by how clear they were . . . flawlessly articulated . . . absolutely amazing."
-- Dale Rasco,


"The M3 is a remarkable little speaker for a very attractive price."
-- Ian Masters,


"...these little Axiom speakers have no right to sound as good as they do."
-- Doug Schneider,


"...phenomenal. In fact, from a passive two-way monitor, you can't really get much more performance regardless of price!"
-- Srajan Ebaen,

Customer Comments about the M3 Family

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

I researched these bookshelf speakers big time as I am fussy.
Hooked these to a multi-channel Sony AV receiver.
Hit the play button.
I'm writing you with my mouth still open.
WOW, Thank you for this great little speaker.
As a Canadian I'm proud of you, Great sound, solid feel. great service. Keep up the exceptional work.
-- Rae F., AB


As a recording engineer I am very particular when it comes to audio equipment. I couldn't be happier with my new M3s. You guys make a suberb speaker and the service was flawless. Keep it up!
-- Noah H., CT


Beautiful! Uncompromising quality, value, and performance. The M3s sounded great right out of the box. I could use words like, clarity, balanced, refined, transparent, but the highest compliment I can give is to simply say, they moved me.... I'm still smiling! Highly recommended.
-- David S., VA


The speakers are fantastic! Tthe M3s are the perfect small monitor, especially for European (small) spaces.
-- Adam J., U.K.



I recently purchased a pair of your M3s...all based on research... from testimonials to professional reviews. Time and time again your speakers came up winners with high recommendations; the messages were consistent, give them a try, you won't be disappointed. I'm sending this bulletin today to all who are considering an Axiom product: DO IT! It's all there, imaging, soudstaging, build quality and clarity. I looked at most of the competitors; PSB, B&W, Paradigm, Mission etc. all were much higher priced, but not even near the value Axiom is delivering. This is my first purchase from Axiom and I guarantee (to all) this is my new speaker company for years and years to come. Your product is exceptional. I'm looking like an audiophile genius.
-- Rich D., NY


I was worried about ordering speakers which I never listened to. I read many reviews about the M3 speakers and decided to take a leap of faith. I am a novice at home theatre systems but when I plugged these speakers in I realized how exceptional these speakers were. My leap of faith was not in vain. I am extremely happy with my choice.
-- Desroy F., NJ
