They're nice but I don't know how to put them in the system or however you say it. They're not floorstanding. I could put them next to the tv if I get room, but are there stands that will work them?

Axiom's recommended stand for M22s is 16" tall. if you stick close that height you should be alright.

Things to consider are the height, you want the tweeter at or near ear level when seated. It should pass the WAF as far as blending with the décor. The material the stand is made of can affect the overall sound of the speaker as well.And most important the stability of the stand depending on how many kids ,dogs etc you have.


DOG is GOD spelled backwards.

I have 2 sets of the taller Axiom's stands - one holding M2's & the other M3s. I spent a lot of time searching for stands but I finally settled on the Axioms. Most of the others looked too spindly & flimsy to me.

The Axioms are wonderfully classy (WAF?), very heavy duty & the top plate is specially shaped to hold the Axiom speaker form factor. The retaining mechanism holds onto the speaker securely.

I noticed a marked improvement in the sound of my M3s on these stands probably because they were now better coupled to the floor.

The Axioms are a bit pricey but well worth it IMHO...

The stands cost more than I paid for everything! lol. I know mine was the CL deal. I'll have to think about it. I have them on the floor right this second. I guess I can set them on a small table next to the tv.

Pics of the simple, inexpensive MDF stands that I still use for my M22s are found here.

What did you put on the top of the stands for the "triangular" bottom of the speakers? Oh, a guy I read said this. He was right. They look like coffins. lol.

When I first got my M22s I designed a special variable height stand for them. Stacks of old Stereo Review magazines(better sound quality than Time or Newsweek)about 14-20 inches high were tried. You might experiment with something similar. Actually, stacks of magazines or newspapers are pretty acoustically inert and isolated from the floor, so serve the purpose of stands quite well.

Sadly, the WAF on those stands is quite low...

Do you want good sound or good.... Well, maybe after you've found the height that works best, you might get something more resembling furniture.
