Celebrated detailed nuanced sound in our most compact bookshelf speaker.

* Required Fields

An inexpensive micro-sized
super-achiever . . .

Axiom's smallest bookshelf speaker, the affordable M2, is distinguished by unusually musical and natural sound. Winner of the SoundStage! Reviewer's Choice Award, the M2 delivers smooth convincing bass, highly detailed treble, and extremely realistic-sounding male and female vocals that put the performance right in your room. The M2 features a 5.25-inch aluminum-cone woofer - unheard of in this price category - and crystal clear 1-inch titanium dome tweeter. You'll be amazed at the articulation of guitar strings and delicate overtones that are reproduced by these little dynamos.

Aluminum Woofer

3-Dimensional Sound

"I was stunned the first time I played the M2 ... Axiom has scored big-time. An inexpensive, micro-sized super-achiever."
– Doug Schneider, SoundStage.com

This diminutive 11.5-inch-tall speaker delivers a high-end three-dimensional soundstage in an elegant, small cabinet. Pair the M2's with a subwoofer for an unbeatable combination in small to medium rooms, dens and dorms!

"The M2 and EP125 make a superb combination in a small room system... the M2 is a legend in the making."
– Kevin Hunt, GoodSound.com

Customers and reviewers alike are thrilled with the performance of this speaker - at last you don't need to compromise quality to get audiophile sound in a small package. How do we do it? 25 years of audio research have gone into making a speaker that is compact yet capable of impressive stereo reproduction, as well as anchoring a home theater system.

Excellence by Design

" . . .a refreshingly clean, smooth sound"
– Suave Kajko, CanadaHiFi

These eye-catching speakers are 8 ohms and therefore easy to power with any amplifier, whether solid-state or tube. The asymmetrical anti-standing-wave tapered shape of the cabinet is highly resistant to resonances that can degrade sound quality in other speakers.

You don't have to take our word for it - audition these speakers in your own home. The M2s come with a 30-day in-home trial, a five-year warranty and free shipping.

"The M2 v4 is competitive with much more expensive speakers of similar size, and when you listen, you will never feel like you were purchasing to a price point. In a word, they sound expensive."

- Kevin Hunt, GoodSound
"As I listened I was digging out old records and CDs just to hear how they sounded playing over the M2s. Rarely does a speaker draw that kind of enthusiasm from me, particularly a small, inexpensive model."

Customer Reviews
I already own a pair of the M2 v3s and will probably go for the upgrade to the new M2 v4. But...I have never heard better speakers...anywhere. Contrary to what some Pro reviewers have said....a SUBWOOFER is not needed with the M2's....they have more than enough BASS, especially when listening to classical, jazz, or rock. Gamers might want a sub-woofer, but for listening to music....it's not needed. My M2's are played through a Pioneer VSX-522 receiver and the sound is truly magnificent.
- Carmen A., MI
These refurbished M2v2's look brand new, not a single scratch or blemish on them. You sure could have fooled me. The sound is surprisingly great for such a compact speaker. Consider me one very satisfied customer!
- Jeff S., MI
Very good speaker for the price. I never found speaker that matches the sound quality (neutral, fidelity,) even compared with speakers such as 8 000$. I always been very pleased with your service every time I bought from you. I own M80, EP500, QS8, M2, M3 and M22 speakers.
- Bruno R., QC
Best speakers I ever heard.
PERIOD !!
IMHO...a subwoofer is not needed.
More than enough BASS, when
playing either classical or jazz.
They seem to IMPROVE the more
they are played.
ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE !!
- Carmen A., MI
Only one word to describe these speakers: Awesome!!!
- Kevin M., OH
M2's are just as good as any speaker Axiom has within their range and purpose. Imaging and staging has no place for a speaker of this price. Incredible.
