Edit: I made a mistake to my previous post. I assumed that Axiom had the M22 in its list of cabinet speakers. I would still appreciate a sound comparison between the M22's bookshelves with plugs and on-wall speakers.

You may get the desired result just pulling the speakers out an inch or two especially if you are plugging the ports. Also another possibility is to close off those cabinet spaces so they are flush with the wall and installing M22 on wall speakers.

The M22's are nice and as long as they are in good shape keeping them is a solid choice. I really like bridgmans idea of install in sliding shelves inside of the existing bookshelves so you could slide the speakers out when in use. I purchased indu

Do you have port plugs for the M22's? Seeing as you will have a massive EP-500 to do bass duties, plugging up the port at the back of the M22 would reduce the need to pull them out too far and help minimize weird sound dynamics. If you don't have p

bridgman, thank you for all the feedback, especially the link about Absorption Coefficients, quite interesting. About Zen-Beau our kitty cat, I know it seems for unknown reason to me like that one has taken up yoga?

Thanks for the additional pictures - that helps a lot. I have to admit my first thought when you said "the bookshelves are the wall; removing them would be a big job" was "hey that means they would both come out at the same time"

Hi, No one has mentioned area rugs, and I don't see any in the pictures. As lovely as wood floors are, several thick area rugs can be very effective acoustic absorbers, or thick carpet, and also thick curtains when they're partly or fully closed are

That is a tough layout. Lots of glass, and I mean a LOT of glass. That will bounce around an unwanted amount of sound energy in the room, and the more speakers you add, the more muddled it will be. You will have peaks and nulls all over the place,

Also, the EP500 is a sealed unit, where the EP175 is a ported. Not that any of the Axiom subs huff, but I found that the sealed units give a much more integrated sound with my speakers than I have ever achieved from a ported sub.

Another vote for EP500. I'm not sure it will move more air than 2 EP175's, but the DSP and the extended frequency response would make the decision for me. My feeling is that mixing subwoofers is not a bad thing... says the guy with mixed subwoofers
