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.'
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.
The low frequency producing EP350 powered subwoofer produces a clean tight bass. This effect added a clean bass punch while never revealing its placement . . . I haven't heard anything else in its price range that comes close to this level of performance.
...we would not change a thing; they are that great . Because Axiom offers the Epic 80 home theater system at such a value, anyone can have audiophile quality speakers that rival more expensive brands.
I never felt as though I would have to run for the volume control due to unwanted distortions. The EP350 subwoofer created a clean, controlled bass response that filled the room during bass demanding scenes.
. . . bombastic orchestral scores, pounding LFE tracks, densely layered sound effects and ambiance. The Axioms handled it all with panache, serving up a vibrant sonic performance, with all the dynamics, impact, detail, and spatial definition that you could ask for.
The EP175 is fast and tuneful and very, very clean. If you take the time to set it up optimally with the M22s, the results are astonishingly transparent and musical. That $900 speaker system will give you bass down 30Hz and a seamless, thrillingly musical soundstage. If your HT system has to perform double duty and play your music as well as your films, you could do a lot worse than the EP175. In fact, you'd have to spend a lot more money to do better.

The sub cranks out nice, deep and rich bass that'll rattle your walls if you want it to.
The sub cranks out nice, deep and rich bass that'll rattle your walls if you want it to. Surprisingly for this price point, the sub comes with balanced and unbalanced inputs, which makes it compatible with broad range of receivers or amplifiers.
