These new M100s push my Yamaha RX-A860 to the limit, actually it doesn't know what to do, one channel is 10db higher than the other. It can't handle it. I took one M100 out of the box and plugged it in and was shocked at the sound. It fills the room. I am impressed. I've been enjoying them. I'm having to figure out a better way to fit them in the room and which amp to go with. I now understand when people say these three little 6" drivers don't need a sub. It's shocking how much bass they put out. The mid range and lower end hits you in the chest.

The negative, which people search for but generally don't find, luckily Axiom has the balls to have an open forum. My ears are used to the brightness of the old tweeters. I'm sure the new ones will please the masses but they play lower than the old ones. When I turned on my old VP150 center channel it filled the gap quite well, but that is needing to be replaced as the off axis performance is not what it should be. So I have to find a 10 year old axiom center channel, hopefully with a woofer/tweeter/woofer. Needless to say the M100 is the best speaker thats ever been in my house.

Also, any ideas on how I can better fit these guys in the room would be very welcome. I have a set of outriggers to fasten them down, but these guys are very heavy.

Your Yammy is fine unless you're pegging it or it's damaged. The ADA will fix that.

The v4 tweeters are boss! I wonder if you are pushing the Yammy into distortion.

You need a VP160v4.

You can never achieve the full potential of the M100s in that room. Not even close. This is why I suggested the M2 for you. What's the point of cramming them into that space?

The best you can do is rotate that room 90 degrees. Problem is, the bass from those sphincters will blow out your new windows. You will need EQ.

My heart truly aches for you because you are now discovering what audio is but you will never reach your destination unless you raze your place to the ground and start over.

Hey Rebulx, those m100s are definitely dominating that room! It’s neat you get to compare the different tweeters.

What does the rest of the room look like? Any way to do a wide shot or draw a basic schematic for the room?

Also, I’m assuming the white speakers m5 and others are a home theatre in another room in the house?

Yes your are absolutely correct Mojo! I do think something is off on the Yamaha, as I hooked up the old M50s and got the same 10 dd ++ reduction in sound.

Kodiak, I have pics in another thread. I'll see if I can repost here.

Rebulx, can you just temporarily move your left M100 to the right side of your fireplace? I know the window is there but just temporarily. Then just listen. You may never put it back. smile

why not put the tv where the painting\poster is and flank it with the speakers as wide as you can go... then put the couch where the glass doors are
