Go out and actually start auditioning speakers. No one can TELL you what is going to sound good to YOU in YOUR room, on YOUR gear.

Looking at the axiom line up around 1800.oo shipped


CENTER VP150 $400.00 CAD

FRONTS M3 $323.00 CAD

REARS QS4 $419.00 CAD

SUB EP350 $743.00 CAD



Would this be pretty good or any other ideas thanks?

Come home with a pair of Beta 50s and stick them right next to your TV. Your wife will love them.




No, honestly. How big is big? Bose is completely rediculous, although sharp, there is no mids.


Maybe you can convince her to go bigger if you get a nice "wood" finish. For example the L890s in cherry or av123 systems in wood. They can make a room look nice.


Because when it comes down to it, you can't cheat physics. Sound needs room.

Pick your poison. No one can TELL you if this axiom set up will sound good to YOUR ears, on YOUR gear, in YOUR room.


Go out and start LISTENING to speakers in your price range. AT ~ $1800 - $2000 CAD, there are SEVERAL brands that you might find extremely enjoyable. AND.... just as many that you WON'T like.


Once you find something you really enjoy, buy a pair of the front speakers and order a pair of the Axiom's if you still think you want to try them. Try them side by side in your own listening enviroment for a period of time. Return the ones you don't like and then finish out your system.


What do you think is going to happen if three or four people jump in this thread, tell you that, that particular Axiom system rocks. You spend $1800 CAD, un box everything, set it all up.... and to you, in your room.... the speakers sound like dog doo or they totally underwhelm you. Then a week later you happen by Joe's Stereo Heaven and listen to some PSB's for less money that totally blow you away?


Do yourself a favor and start LISTENING to some different speakers and start getting an idea of the sound you prefer. Do it right the first time.... and you won't waste money having to do it all over again.
