It works really good for sub placement as well. Lots of boom. Every ones favorite track from him was called, Make The Car Go Boom.

I twerked to make the car go boom today in the presence of church ladies who were none too pleased with my evil shenanigans.

As I said in a previous post, I replaced the M50s with the M100s in my living room. I said sonically, the M100s blew the M50s out of the water. While this is true, I just can't seem to relax while listening to M5s or M100s in this room. Even when I'm cooking up a storm in the adjacent kitchen, the M50s are more enjoyable. I chalk it all up to the lively nature of my main floor.

A review of the M50 will make it over to Axiom for potential posting on the product page. BTW, it's great to see Axiom doesn't edit any of my reviews. Both good and not so good things made it in. They've botched up my "oh so careful" formatting though which makes some of my reviews difficult to read.

In order to get the "tightest" bass possible out of my M50s in the living room, I had to move the front baffles 7'2" from the front wall. So they're a third into my living room now.

They're running in 2.0 off an ADA-1000 which is plenty for the M50 without any EQ. The source is a Chromecast Audio connected to the 1000. The M50 starts to distort before the 1000 gives out. My ears give out before that.

This depth into the room isn't a criticism of the M50. It's physics. If you don't want to deal with physics, buy the Bose 601 which has a low end of 250Hz. You can place those a foot away from the wall and call it good.

BTW, this 7 foot distance gives an incredibly deep soundstage. Butting them up against the wall won't achieve that.
