M100 Floorstanding Speakers
Axiom's flagship floorstanding speaker is designed for the audiophile who wants it all. This speaker shows off the best of what over 30 years of audio research has proven - you will be blown away by the clarity, detail, powerful bass, and stunning dynamics this speaker will add to your listening experience. It has unprecedented tonal range, all in perfect balance: from deep low powerful bass, clear open midrange, and extended nuanced treble. You'll hear the click of the castanets, the tinkle of the triangle, and the soul-stirring reverberations of the big bass drums.
Triple woofers, dual midranges, and twin tweeters - hear it all! That's 7 drivers in each M100 floorstanding speaker - 14 in a pair - for spectacular power handling up to 400 Watts and deep extended powerful bass. From the tight snap of a bass drum to the shimmer of brushed cymbals, the accuracy of this speaker will astound you. The M100 transforms musical recordings into live performances in your living room, and brings definitive realism to home theater.
"Axiom deserves a gold medal -- or, better still, a Reviewers' Choice award -- for how much sonic goodness they've packed into the wonderful M100. The Axiom M100 stands as one of the best-balanced reasonably priced speakers I've heard. Enthusiastically recommended."
-- Oliver Amnuayphol, SoundStage Hi Fi
Rediscover your music collection
Jazz, classical, deep pulsing rock, or taut, tight rap - you will rediscover your music collection with the M100s. You'll hear details that used to be buried in the mix - the sound of fingers sliding up and down guitar strings, the quick breath in a jazz rendition, the completely effortless reproduction of male and female vocals that produce natural, smooth sound. The M100s create a three-dimensional soundstage with plenty of depth and width that envelop your whole room in the performance.
These 4-ohm audiophile speakers will create ultra-clean, high-volume levels in large rooms. The M100s come with supplied adjustable metal feet, die cast baskets, bi-wire capabilities, and a wrench for tightening the binding posts. Optional accessories include machined aluminum outriggers, custom finishes, or carpet spikes.
Wondering how to choose floorstanding speakers in the Axiom line up? What's the difference between the M60, M80, and M100 tower speakers, and what's the right time to use an LFR omnidirectional speaker instead? In today's video, Andrew walks you through the line up in detail, explains a few key terms, and shares a lot of our customer's photos.
Questions We Get All the Time
What brand of AV receiver should I consider to drive the 4-ohm M100 loudspeakers?
For rooms up to 4,000 cu. ft in volume (length x width x height), Axiom has found that receivers from: Denon, NAD, Outlaw Audio, Sherwood Newcastle, Harman/Kardon, Rotel, B&K, Pioneer Elite, high-end Onkyo ($800 and up) and high-end Yamaha ($1000-plus) are the most stable and will make these speakers sing. Buyers who have "great rooms" or those with cathedral ceilings or who want movie-theater-loud playback levels in such rooms should consider using separate outboard power amplifiers for at least the M80s.
What distance from the back wall?
A minimum clearance of 2 inches from the back wall is sufficient. If deep bass output is exaggerated, move the speaker farther out from the wall behind.
What distance from the side walls?
Avoid corners where possible and keep the speakers at least 1 foot or so away from the side walls.
Why 4-ohm Impedance?
The impedance is not chosen by the speaker designer. The impedance is determined by the number of drivers in the speaker (an M100 has seven) and the complexity of the crossover network. To try and make the M100 an 8-ohm speaker would degrade its sound quality and result in power losses.
Benefits associated with 4-ohm Impedance?
Impedance is an electrical trait. If the receiver or amplifier is stable into 4-ohm loads, it will be able to "pull" more power, up to twice as much, from the amplifier than an 8-ohm speaker.
Why dual tweeters?
Dual tweeters (and dual midranges and woofers) are used in the M100's to greatly increase maximum power handling (volume) and lower distortion at very loud playback levels.
All Axiom Tower Speakers feature:
- Titanium Tweeters
- Aluminum Woofers (and Midranges where applicable)
- Anti-Standing-Wave cabinets that suppress internal resonances which color sound
- Vortex-ported cabinets to reduce port noise
- 5-way gold-plated binding posts

Not only has Axiom met all of its goals for this model; they've managed to do so at a price nearly everyone can afford. The M100's uncanny blend of low-compression, superb bass quality and quantity, and lively yet uncolored tonal balance, makes it one of the most well-rounded, non-hair-shirt, will-please-just-about-anyone speakers you can buy at any price.
. . .this is one helluva lot of speaker for the money. You probably cannot find another serious speaker that can put out such prodigious volumes of clean sound or reach so very deep at this price or anywhere near it.
