    Hello all,

    I know there's already a million threads on these 3 brands, but I'm really torn! On the one hand, I've auditioned the Energy C3s and loved them. I auditioned the JBL E30s and E90s as a system and thought that it sounded ok, but mind you it was at BB. I would be going a model up on each so E50 and E100. I haven't auditioned the Axiom m22Ti, but after reading all the praise that they've recieved here and in publication, I would consider them. I loved the C3s, but I can get the four JBL for a few hundred dollars less (cdn) than 2 pairs of each the Energy and the axiom, the only problem is that BB wasn't really a good auditioning location, so i'm not sure if I was hearing the TRUE sound of the speakers. I've enjoyed the process of sorting through and narrowing the choices, but I'm always hesitant about pulling the trigger. Oh BTW, if I got the C3 or M22Ti, I would probably match them up w/ a good floor standing set in 6 months or so. I'm split about 30/70 movies to music, and I watch alot of NBA ball during the season. After living with a RCA wall mart set for 4 years, i'm really ready to become improve my lot in life [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well, if I was you, I would get the Energy speakers. Why? Because you love the sound! That is the most important thing when buying speakers. You love the Energy speakers, but said the Jbls were just "ok". And you can't hear the Axioms. So my advice is to get the speakers you already know you love. Unless money is a major concern, then you should consider the Jbls.

    Best Buy is the worst place to audition JBL E speakers.

    I have a 7.1 setup and they sound fantastic!
