Yes, match all 3 fronts at least. I have M22, M3, and M2 and VP-150 on walls in a small room. They do well. The M22's are actually my least favorite but they are V3's vs the rest being V4's. The M2/M3 have more bass, the M22 on walls have very weak bass but if you have a decent sub, no worries. I also replaced my QS8's with M3 on-walls for my rear surrounds for Atmos and that was a nice upgrade. If you got the money go for their new on walls M5hp.
Remember, Axiom has 4 ways to buy speakers. New, Factory outlet, Refurb, and B-stock. Personally their prices have sky rocketed over the years and I don't see buying them New as much of a bargain as they used to be. Factory outlet is as good as new, as I don't see any difference in my "new" ones vs them. A B-stock in excellent in condition is equally as good usually. Anything that says scratch and dent, probably avoid. I'm in Canada, so my options are limited, and Axiom treats me very well. They also have excellent black Friday sales.
I have a LOT of Axioms...lots. Ep800 real knotty pine, two Axiom Air's, EP500, M80, QS8, VP-150, on wall VP-150, VP160, four M3 bookshelves real knotty pine, on wall M3/M2, four in ceilings with aimable tweeters M3's. Also have HSU, several SVS subs PB2k/SB2k, Paradigm, Polk, even old Vega D9's in the house as well. Their real wood options are gorgeous and resemble high end furniture more than speakers. Their Vinyl is excellent as well with my oldest ones being 13 yrs old and look like new. SVS in my opinion make the worse Vinyl I've ever owned of any speaker/sub with all mine bubbling and peeling within months.
There are about 3-4 people here that have bashed Axiom over the years for their own benefit to further other brands. Try them, send them back within 30 days, use your own ears to judge.
