    I am wanting to upgrade my HT, and I heard Axioms were the way to go for the sound for not much money. I want to buy the M3t, the VP100, and the Q2 surrounds. Any one have any opinions?? [​IMG]

    Brook,

    I have exactly what you are looking at except I have the QS4s instead of the QS2s. I will be honest I never heard of Axiom until I started reading this forum. Also, I was skeptical about buying a speaker without hearing them, but I didn't want to have to deal with overpriced B&M stores. So I took the chance and ordered Axiom. I can say I have been very happy with their product. The M3s are very clear except playing deep bass. You will definitely want to add a good sub with those speakers. I would suggest not to buy any of their subs. For the same price as their Axiom EP125, you can get an adire Rava from $399. I wish I would have. The QS4s in my opinon are very good surrounds. I have read quite a bit of people knocking the VP100, but I have been very happy with mine. It seems to flow wll with the left and right channels in movies. Hope this helps and good luck in choosing your speakers.

    I have the M3Ti's, the VP100 and the QS4's and have no complaints at all. They sound great, a very crisp clean sound for relatively inexpensive speakers.

    Another positive to these is that you can purchase them from Axiom in their Factory Outlet and save some $$$. The only thing that makes them a factory outlet version is that they have very small cabinet blemishes, nothing to worry about.

    I would highly recommend them to anyone on a budget that is still looking for high quality sound.

    I have the M3's as mains and a VP100 and would definitely recommend them. I got mine from the Factory Outlet and can't see anything wrong them.

    Brook, You do not say where you live, but if it's anywhere near the Canadian border, you might find a store that carries Axiom.

    Brook,
    I'm another happy Axiom owner. I have the VP100 center, M3 mains, QS4 surrounds, and the EP175 sub. Great system that easily fills my 20X18 viewing area. I've had it two months now.
    I've seen quite a bit about other company's subs being better for the money, but a matched set was crucial for our decor. Also, I'm fairly new to the game and getting this as a complete system at one time was an easy way to go for me. I truly enjoy my sub. Good luck!

    Thanks for all the information everybody! I'm almost positive I am going to buy these speakers. I all ready have a very good sub, so no worries there! It's a Shiva 12" sonotube, I bought it from my uncle. It really shakes the house.
    Everyone says they have the Q4 surrounds, are the Q2 even close to as good? I have sort of a limited budget. So those are all I can afford.
    And Jack I live in Lena, Wisconsin. So not really close to the Canadian border. Where is the closest store that is near me?[​IMG]

    Brook,

    That sounds like an awesome system for only $615 delivered (if you buy factory outlet).

    As an owner, I can tell you that the M3Tis sound great as mains.

    I also have a M3 + VP100 setup (no surrounds yet) and would recommend it without hesitation [​IMG]
