M3 Home Theater Speakers got a Reviewers Choice Award from GoodSound

The M3 is Axiom's most versatile and compact stereo and home theater speaker. Winner of the SoundStage! Reviewer's Choice Award and GoodSound! Product of the Year, the M3 delivers powerful bass, outstanding treble, and award-winning musical sound for under $400. Its powerful 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofer and 1-inch titanium dome tweeter deliver crystal clear vocals, driving bass and shimmering cymbals. Hear what a difference 25 years of audio research makes in loudspeaker sound.

"I'm really in a state of disbelief because these little Axiom speakers have no right to sound as good as they do. They are an outright steal for the money!" -- Doug Schneider,

This compact speaker works with virtually any amplifier - as low as 10 watts - but give it up to 175 Watts for powerful sound output and it will really rock! You can use it with or without a subwoofer, depending on your musical preferences. An excellent choice as an all-round speaker in small to medium-sized rooms.

The M3s make great stereo speakers and are excellent performers as part of a 5.1-channel or 7.1-channel home audio surround package. If you're looking for a pair of speakers that you'll be able to build into a system in the future, the M3s are a solid choice. Reviewer Ian Masters recommends using lots of them:

"You could even use five or six of them in a home-theater system without breaking the bank. I'd call it a winner!" -- Ian Masters,

M3 Home Theater Speakers got a Reviewers Choice Award from SoundStage

It's no mystery why they are the darlings of reviewers and consumers alike. Our proprietary vortex port eliminates port noise and increases low bass output and efficiency so all you hear is deep, clean and natural musical bass. The M3s' wide, smooth frequency response tells the tale: linear performance means whatever you play will sound clearer, crisper and more airy on Axiom speakers, results that we prove in double-blind listening tests against our competitors.

"good luck finding anything remotely as good for the price. I think they are better than any B&W, Klipsch, Infinity, Technics, Bose, JBL and Sony models I have heard in this price range."
-- A. Colin Flood,

Why not audition these speakers in your own home? The M3s come with a 30-day in-home trial, a five-year warranty and free shipping.

Professional Reviews

Industry Reviews of the M3 Family

"Clean, neutral, low coloration, great dynamics, and in the case of the M3 a truly “natural” and realistic midrange that’s the next best thing to being there."
-- Greg Z,


"the level of resolved detail the M3v3 provide across the spectrum is pretty dang astounding. . . I was blown away to find out they were $348, especially when considering their performance."
-- Adam LaBarge,


M3 Home Theater Speakers, reviewed here by How Stuff Works
"The performance left us speechless... The M3's would work splendidly in a two-channel stereo system or as the main speakers in Axiom's Epic Master home theater speaker system. With wonderful performance and very attractive looks, all at a great price, you can't go wrong with the Axiom M3 bookshelf speakers."
-- J. Walker Clarke, Consumer Guide


"The Axiom speaker sounded very good at low volume levels and jaw dropping at high levels. These speakers can lull you or rock you; it's your choice."
-- Ray Adkins, Audioholics


"Anybody looking for high quality, very low cost loudspeakers, should listen to the Axiom's - good luck finding anything remotely as good for the price."
-- A. Colin Flood,

"Through every type of music that I threw at them, the M3s performed far beyond my expectations and I am still taken aback by how clear they were . . . flawlessly articulated . . . absolutely amazing."
-- Dale Rasco,


"The M3 is a remarkable little speaker for a very attractive price."
-- Ian Masters,


"...these little Axiom speakers have no right to sound as good as they do."
-- Doug Schneider,


"...phenomenal. In fact, from a passive two-way monitor, you can't really get much more performance regardless of price!"
-- Srajan Ebaen,


"For pure music listening, the M3s outshine nearly every other competitor in the sub-$1000 price range.  ...we can't recommend these highly enough!"
-- Benjamin Ricci, Performer Magazine

Customer Comments about the M3 Family

Below are just a few of the many reviews that our customers have been kind enough to send us.

I researched these bookshelf speakers big time as I am fussy.
Hooked these to a multi-channel Sony AV receiver.
Hit the play button.
I'm writing you with my mouth still open.
WOW, Thank you for this great little speaker.
As a Canadian I'm proud of you, Great sound, solid feel. great service. Keep up the exceptional work.
-- Rae F., AB


As a recording engineer I am very particular when it comes to audio equipment. I couldn't be happier with my new M3s. You guys make a suberb speaker and the service was flawless. Keep it up!
-- Noah H., CT


Beautiful! Uncompromising quality, value, and performance. The M3s sounded great right out of the box. I could use words like, clarity, balanced, refined, transparent, but the highest compliment I can give is to simply say, they moved me.... I'm still smiling! Highly recommended.
-- David S., VA


The speakers are fantastic! Tthe M3s are the perfect small monitor, especially for European (small) spaces.
-- Adam J., U.K.



I recently purchased a pair of your M3s...all based on research... from testimonials to professional reviews. Time and time again your speakers came up winners with high recommendations; the messages were consistent, give them a try, you won't be disappointed. I'm sending this bulletin today to all who are considering an Axiom product: DO IT! It's all there, imaging, soudstaging, build quality and clarity. I looked at most of the competitors; PSB, B&W, Paradigm, Mission etc. all were much higher priced, but not even near the value Axiom is delivering. This is my first purchase from Axiom and I guarantee (to all) this is my new speaker company for years and years to come. Your product is exceptional. I'm looking like an audiophile genius.
-- Rich D., NY


I was worried about ordering speakers which I never listened to. I read many reviews about the M3 speakers and decided to take a leap of faith. I am a novice at home theatre systems but when I plugged these speakers in I realized how exceptional these speakers were. My leap of faith was not in vain. I am extremely happy with my choice.
-- Desroy F., NJ
