Wow, great to see these new products!
Ian/Andrew - what are the frequency response specs for the on wall version of the M5? I only see one version in the specs section, but I assume the on wall version will not hit -3dB all the way down at 45Hz. That would be crazy talk, no? laugh

This may worth the upgrade program for me as I have to stick with on walls but would love to get full(er) range sound. 3x on wall M5 for front L/C/R would replace my existing M22/M2/M22 combo.

Would pairing the on wall M5 with my existing QS8's work alright? I'd love the QS10's but due to their considerably larger size I'd have a hard time fitting them in where the QS8's are located.

Cheers,

Yeah I'm excited to hear people compare to new onwalls to the old. If they can match the bass of the m3 bookshelves in a onwall speaker my prayers have been answered.

The M5HP will be so much better! The M3 bass and mid-range blows; the M22 blows too. Everyone who owns an M3 or an M22 ought to do their ears-brain system a favor and upgrade.

Not sure they blow for surround duties in Atmos, but now I have the itch wondering about these onwalls, dang Axiom why do you do this to me.

I don't know about surround because I have not heard them in that application.

Randy, a man of your means and intellect just has to find out just how good the M5s are. You don't want to be jealous of mine do you? Well...do you?

I do like my in/on wall M22's which have a bit better bass than the on-wall only equivalent, but they do totally need my EP500 backing them up.

With M5 on-wall's I could start using a 60Hz or better crossover setting and I'm sure the sound quality would improve.
Now to make my wife understand why it's in her best interest to let me upgrade the HT.... wink

I've lost my intellect and my $ with Audio and Homebrewing hobbies, lol.

I wonder if the onwall versions will have the same snapon bracket as the other onwalls, can't find a picture.

You'll still need a sub with the M5HP but the mid-bass and mid-range will be Oh! So sweet!

Hi cb919,

Tomorrow we will have product pages for the on-wall and in-wall version with pictures and specs.

It is no problem to pair M5 fronts with QS8 surrounds. The M5 on-wall version will not reach the 45 Hz at the bottom end but if you have a sub in your system you could set the crossover to 60 or 80 Hz.
