I'm assuming you mean the Axiom system with the M2s up front and the Hsu Ventriloquist plus a STF sub. Your best system would be a combination of Axioms for the 5 and a Hsu sub for the .1. By all accounts, the Axiom subs are OK, but not in the same league as Hsu or SVS. Buy the Axioms from their factory outlet (no one's ever reported more than the tiniest cosmetic imperfection) and you're definitely under $1200 for a really good system.
