Questions We Get All The Time

What size room do these work in?

How much power does my receiver need for these speakers?

Stunning surround sound that will turn your living room into the neighbourhood's favourite place to watch movies. You may never go to a movie theater again!

The QS8 delivers all the special effects present in Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks. Every home theater review cites the QS8s' stunning surround-sound envelopment as the key to an amazing listening experience.

"But mamma! The QS8s are astonishing. Period. No qualifiers are needed -- not for the money or of their type or considering . . . about as diffuse as surrounds get. . . . I have simply never heard a speaker that better lived up to the surround paradigm."-- Wes Phillips, OnHomeTheater.com

Surround Graphic

The QS8s feature twin titanium tweeters and dual aluminum woofers top and bottom. Sound is transmitted in four directions (see diagram), tricking your ears so they can't tell where the speaker is. All you'll feel is complete immersion in the movie or music soundtrack. Unlike traditional direct-radiating surround speakers that have just two drivers, the QS8's four drivers effectively mimic the special sound effects of large Dolby movie theaters for all seats in the room. These speakers are comparable to professional surround sound speakers at $1,500 a pair!

"I was shocked at the level of performance that I was able to obtain with the QS-8 speakers. The QS-8 surrounds sounded robust and spacious. Because of their small size, they are very unobtrusive when installed. Channel separation was excellent . . . placement of the QS-8 on the back wall made the rear sound stage sound like it went on forever." -- Ray Adkins, Audioholics.com

The Quadpolar QS8s are best in medium to large rooms with moderate to high-powered amplifiers or receivers. An excellent match with our M2, M22, M60 or M80 speakers.

There are several mounting options for this easy-to place speakers. You can use the free included T-Bracket to flush-mount the QS8 on a wall. Alternatively, Axiom's Full Metal Bracket will let you tilt or swivel the QS8, for placement on angled wall or bulkhead. We also offer a Full Metal Ceiling Bracket so that you can hang the QS8s in the room. We also recommend the specially designed FMS QS that allows the bottom woofer to fire freely. Please note the speaker cannot sit on a bookshelf - it has to be elevated.

Why not try the QS8 in your home theater for 30 days with our in-home trial? Includes a five-year warranty and free shipping!

Professional Reviews

Industry Reviews

"The QS8 v3s were able to both immerse me in the soundfield and re-create the various sonic environments the characters found themselves in, as well as accurately pinpoint discrete effects such as the sounds of exploding plates."
-- Vince Hanada, SoundStageExperience.com

"The QS8 has to set the standard for multipole design speakers. Positioned directly to the sides of the main seating area, the QS8's disappear sonically, and were less finicky about seating position than any other speaker I've tried as a surround."
-- Geoff Cintron, AudioReview.com

". . .placement of the QS-8 on the back wall made the rear sound stage sound like it went on forever."
-- Ray Adkins, Audioholics.com

"excellent dispersion... For discrete surround, such as Dolby Digital or DTS, the QS-8 will offer a combination of good rear spatial accuracy and a nice enveloping ambient field. It is, I must say, a fine feat of engineering in a bipolar speaker system."
-- Andrew Marshall, Audio Ideas Guide

"The Axiom QS8 is one of the best, most versatile surround speakers I've heard, managing to sound diffuse or directional as needed. "

"Simply put, the QS8 v3's are by far the clearest, most dynamic and impactful surround speakers I have ever heard."
-- Dale Rasco, HomeTheaterShack.com

Customer Comments

Customer Comments

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

Before I ordered mine, I listended to QS8 speakers at a friend's house. So when mine arrived yesterday I was very eager to install them. I can only say that they have literally TRANSFORMED my living room.
Wow, this is a purchase I will not regret for a very long time to come. Highly recommended!
-- Rik G., Belgium

I currently own the M22's, VP 150 and M2's in the rear position. I recently upgraded to the QS8's in the rear and they just sound freaking incredible!!!! Sorry - I just had to tell someone.... A big Thank You from a loyal AXIOM customer.
-- Micheal B., CA USA

As you noted, the Axiom QS8s have been delivered and I assembled the stands and hooked them up to my system. All I can say is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!! Your service is impeccable (I ordered on Friday and they were delivered on Monday.....to North Carolina.) And as far as the QS8 surround speakers, they are unbelievable. I cannot believe the difference they have made in sound field and imaging for music, as well as for movies and music DVDs. QS8s are truly high performance rear effect speakers, as advertised!

Thanks to Axiom for a superbly designed and manufactured product and for your top shelf service. You definitely delivered what you promised and I could not be more pleased with my purchase experience with Axiom.

I will definitely be ordering from Axiom again! 
-- Jim P., NC USA

Finally, I got my QS 8s hooked up as surrounds, M22s in front and my Paradigm Atoms in the rear with Paradigm sub connected to Denon 3802, Toshiba Cinema Series widescreen. Played the new Star Wars DVD and it was unbelievably terrific. Better than in the theatre. Thanks for your help. The axioms are terrific and the QS 8s as surrounds are awesome! 
-- Bob P., OR USA

I have setup my new surround speakers which I have matched with my Marantz multiroom receiver and 1 year old surround stereo system. I must admit, I'm very happy with the clarity of the sound. I have mainly used it to listen to music so far and can't wait to hear the sound of the 7:1 distribution of action movies. I'll let you know of the impact. :) I wanted to thank you and your team for the fine work and quick delivery . I found them quite easy to mount with the brackets as well. It was a pleasure to do business with you.:)
