More Power

The mission: get all the attributes of a full-sized floorstanding speaker in a compact cabinet. The M5 Bookshelf Speaker is our highest-powered stereo and home theater speaker, using the proprietary HP 6.5-inch drivers that were developed for the award-winning LFR Omnidirectional Speakers.  

M5 Bookshelf Speakers

3-way design

It's power taken to the extreme: 1.5"-inch voice coils, with lower distortion and higher excursion than any other drivers. The result? A 3-way flagship speaker with a better, more linear presentation made possible by the wider dispersion of the smaller, dedicated midrange driver.

Endless Soundstage 

Why a 3-way design?  Traditional compact speakers have a tweeter that crosses directly over to a woofer.  These two drivers carry all high, mid and low frequency range.  When you have a 3-way design, high, midrange and low frequencies are carried discretely by drivers dedicated to the task meaning there is lots of power for midrange sounds like voices and mid-range instruments.  

Wider dispersion and a better, more linear family of curves mean you'll be thrilled by the most accurate presentation of your audio recordings.

"The M5HPs’ outstanding clarity was evident with everything I played through them. . . Through the Axioms, “General Patton” had a strong low end that was actually articulate -- the quality of the bass wasn’t masked by the quantity of bass. The speakers sounded full, and made plenty of impact, but did so even as their sound remained crystal clear and apparently effortless. "

Customer Reviews
Au prix demandé pour les M5HP d'Axiom, elles sont un pur ravissement sans être obligé de vider sa tirelire. Elles ont un tweeter extraordinaire qui livre la marchandise sans jamais agresser notre ouie. Un médium de la même trempe, en resumé les trois transducteurs sont faits pour être ensemble.

ls livrent la musique sans jamais la dénaturer. À l’écoute, les yeux fermés, on a l'impression d'avoir des colonnes, un mur de son devant soi. À ce prix, une aubaine pour des heures de plaisir.

I have these M5HP bookself speakers since June 2017,i use a Cambridge Audio 200 watt stereo power amp.i use this for music only.Hard rock music like AC/DC....at low or high volume those speakers deliver the goods but at high level these speakers can take it,the sound is so detailled that i rediscover my old music.I LOVE them.I'm 52 and i had all kind of speakers but Axiom are the best for the money,the quality and the support and it is made in Canada....Let's go Axiom Audio and Rock and Roll

If these Axiom M5HP 3-Way speakers were a food, they would be Hostess Cup Cakes! The M5s sure sound sweet. They have more bass than anticipated, and so far I have not hooked up the subwoofer. That doesn't mean the M5s cannot benefit from the addition of a sub, it's just that my music choices sound great with no sub. A very warm, comfortable, natural sounding speaker, unlike my previous choice of some Klipsch towers. Those horn drivers hurt my ears. These Axiom 3-ways are small (sort of), beautifully made, and sound great. They are also heavy for "bookshelf" speakers. That's one big bookshelf. They were packaged extremely well, and each speaker was wrapped in a black, silk-like bag which added a touch of class (and protection from dust). As stated above, the craftsmanship is impeccable. The fit and finish is at a very impressive level ( I got the black w/black grill). Add to that great customer service on the phone when I ordered them. Highly recommended.

Wow, I am extremely impressed with these speakers. I am a first time Axiom buyer and I was looking for a solid pair of large monitors to replace a pair of 30 year old 3A Reference MM speakers I had.
To start, these speakers are beautiful, I love the Boston Cherry finish and the silver drivers. These matched with the magnetic grills make the M5HPs a very attractive addition to my audio set up.
The sound is incredibly detailed and the bass output is very impressive for a pair of bookshelves. I am most impressed with the soundstage, thanks to the 3-way driver design there is a much more equal dispersion of detail across the entire soundstage. Seriously, wow. I love the sound of my M5HPs.
On top of all this, these things get loud! I am running them off of a Behringer A500 power amp and a tube buffer/preamp. Give these speakers more power, they will really come alive when you do and you'll find yourself immersed in an incredible listening experience.
The build quality of these speakers is phenomenal and Axiom has been great at answering any questions or concerns I have had concerning the purchase and shipment process.
I highly recommend these!
