QS4 Surround Speakers
Surround sound is the most exciting part of home theater - and Axiom's QS4 surround speakers place you in the center of the action. Using unique multi-directionally firing drivers, the QS4 has woofers on the top and bottom, and tweeters left and right, to provide unprecedented envelopment for all listeners.
"The QS4 surround speakers' ability to produce sound 360 degrees around my sofa was simply remarkable. These speakers are also much more forgiving in terms of placement than typical bookshelves. -- Suave Kajko, CanadaHiFi
Sound is transmitted in four directions (see diagram), tricking your ears so they can't tell where the speaker is. All you'll feel is complete immersion in the movie or music soundtrack. Unlike traditional direct-radiating surround speakers that have just two drivers, the QS4's four drivers effectively mimic the special sound effects of large Dolby movie theaters for all seats in the room.
"The noise from the ever-present rain was very well reproduced and the reverberations in the underground tunnels shrouded me in a very convincing manner and really gave me the impression that I was in a cavern." -- Francois Lemieux, Quebec Audio Video
The unique Quadpolar configuration of these speakers was developed by Axiom using extensive research and controlled surround-sound double-blind listening tests. This means your surround-sound experience will be more convincing, more realistic for movie soundtracks and multi-channel music playback.
This is a great choice for small to medium rooms, using moderate to high amplification. We recommend this surround speaker with our M2s, M3s, and M50 front channel speakers. Binding posts are high-quality 5-way gold-plated connectors.

What are quadpolar surround speakers? What makes them sound more realistic than traditional bipolar or dipolar surrounds? Are Axiom's QS10s actually quintpole? In today's video, Andrew explains the design philosophy behind the QS Surround Speakers and how they will make your movie experience more realistic.
Questions We Get All the Time
Can these surrounds sit on a shelf?
There are several mounting options for this easy-to place speaker. You can use the free included T-Bracket to flush-mount the QS4 on a wall. Alternatively, Axiom's Full Metal Bracket will let you tilt or swivel the QS4, for placement on angled wall or bulkhead. We also offer a Full Metal Ceiling Bracket so that you can hang the QS4s in the room. We also recommend the specially designed FMS QS that allows the bottom woofer to fire freely. Please note the speaker cannot sit on a bookshelf - it has to be elevated.

Small to average home theaters.

Home theater receiver with 40 to 120 watts per channel.

'some of the best surround speakers I have encountered'
The noise from the ever-present rain was very well reproduced and the reverberations in the underground tunnels shrouded me in a very convincing manner and really gave me the impression that I was in a cavern.
Thanks to their multi-directionally firing drivers, both the QS4s and the QS8s add tremendous three-dimensionality to the audio. . . a friend made an observation: 'these are the best surround effects I've heard in your home theatre.'
This system provides a true high-end listening experience with both music and movies and is a steal at its price.
