Will the QS10 fit on the FMS QS stand (have these stands for my QS8s)?

Will theses speaker require me to re-calibrate my Audyssey EQ setup. I have the M22's with EP400/EP125 subs VP100 center and M2's for my surrounds. Also will they overwhelm my system for listening to music through pro-logic 2?

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.


Thank you Ian. I am quite pleased to see the -3dB frequency for the on-wall M5. Like many others, I'm also interested in seeing the frequency response graph when you have it available. Although I'm guessing it'll be the typical 'Axiom flat' response :-)

As soon as I get home from this business trip I am measuring my walls to make sure the extra width of these speakers will fit and then I am ordering them! Thanks to Debbie's quick replies I have trade up values already established.

I am curious however how with 3 drivers, one of which is larger than the M22, why the height dimension is actually shorter than the M22 on walls? Overall cabinet volume is quite a bit...more voluminous....but height is shorter. Interesting

Hi Tico,

The QS10s do fit on the FMS-QS stand but it is a different top plate. We will make the top plates (with the collars installed) available on their own for $39.00 each.

Congrats.

Very nice addition to your lineup; however, my Rosewood M22V4s paired with my Rosewood EP800V3s will happily remain in my system because their outstanding performance.

Besides, I like the tall, slim look. The 22s & 800s compliment each other visually...

Hi gary135r,

Of course I will suggest you run your system without running Audyssey EQ and live it with for a bit before trying it with the EQ. You may want to think about upgrading your VP100 to a VP160 to give you a nice balance across the front with the new M5s.

Hi cb919,

The height is almost the same as the M22 on-wall but the width is quite a bit more with the 6.5" woofer. It is also a bit deeper, which doesn't seem like much but percentage wise with the wall thickness removed it is significant.

I was thinking the same thing about my 22's thin style complimenting my living room and the light brown color of them matches my entertainment stand exactly (which the new speakers don't). I am tempted by these speakers, but I'm perfectly happy with what I have. Dilemmas.

I've been happy with my system since the day I've built it back in 2009. Changed to a vertical center channel early on - once I did a bit of research and did some back to back experimentation against the VP150. Otherwise no changes in my audio parts for over 7 years. All that to say my M22's with an EP500 have kept me happy for a long time. But now I know even more happiness fits my room constraints and is within reach!
On wall M5's for left center and right - can't wait to hear them. Why can't it be Friday so I can be home to measure and order? cry

BTW, M5 being shorter than M22 is a good thing for for fitting the vertical center. Also, since these are on-walls only (my existing are the in/on wall architecture series now discontinued), I may even experiment with some narrow wedges to angle the speakers towards the listening position instead of being flat on the wall - has anyone else experimented with that using on-walls? Does Axiom recommend that or just keep them flat?

Hi cb919,

The listening window family of curves are all very similar so you should not have to angle them in, but experimenting in your room is always worth doing.
