Am a about 18 months into my newest home theater room. Also just finished helping my brother in law put his together. This is the 5th room I’ve helped build all with Axiom Speakers all around. My brother in law went all in with M80’s, VP180, 4 QS10’s an EP350 plus a sunfire sub. After helping him with this one I have some upgradeitis.

I’m running M22 on Wall V1 I think. They were my first Axiom purchase over 10 years ago. VP160 center, 4 QS8s, and 2 sunfire subs. Considering upgrading the M22s to M60 on walls to blend with my VP160 center.

My M22s are the version with the deeper cabinet that insets inside the wall. I always thought that gave them more low frequency. The new M60s like all other on wall versions do not inset in the wall. They have a shallow cabinet. Has anyone commented on the difference if any when this change was made? I’m assuming the M60 will be a nice upgrade.

I'm quite sure Ian can build you in-wall M60s. They'll likely give you 10Hz lower extension than on-walls.

I was back and forth for a while with what I wanted in terms of new fronts. The VP160 was my first choice but I was struggling with the sheer size of the unit. I worked with Ian for a bit on a custom adjustment. In the end Ian and I settled on re-working the VP150 center as two front speakers. He moved the rear bracket of course. Increased the length a few inches to allow for the Axiom name plate and added two bottom ports. Just arrived today. Install will take some time with having to rework the stone which currently surrounds the M22's installed. Will update once done with new photos and discussion on the sound differences, if noticeable. This upgrade may have been purely for the sake of doing it... but clearly I am cook with that!

PS, as always, great to work with Ian and staff. Very accommodating and understanding.

Okay! Ready to get started. Room is all prepped to start cutting the stone for the new speakers. This is the part that makes me nervous. I have no spare stone to match if something goes wrong!! Will report back with progress soon as I can!

I love my QS8s. My brother in law has QS10s. Both of our rooms are 2700 to 2900 cubic feet. To me the QS10s are kind of large and not sure I can tell that there is a sizable sound difference. However I just upgraded for the pure sake of doing so as I had my M22s for almost 10 years. If ur digging something new.... go for it!

The EP500 will give you far better bang for your buck. If you have not heard a decent sub then you really don't know what you are missing.

Hell, you are in Mississauga. I'd even consider suggesting you come over and take a listen to a pair of EP500's and tell me that you don't think they really add to the sound.
