How to Paint Speaker Grilles

The M3 In-ceiling is designed for full audio reproduction without the need of a subwoofer. It is perfect for use with a Dolby Atmos receiver which requires ceiling speakers or just for audio playback in those rooms where a full sized speaker or an in-wall speaker is just not going fit the décor. The M3 In-ceiling has the same woofer and tweeter dome as its bookshelf/in-wall cousin. The tweeter motor utilizes a neodymium magnet - a small powerful magnet to save size and maintain the desired Bl (magnetic power) in the gap. The M3 In-ceiling is a fully enclosed system and, like the M3 In-wall, has our unique anti-standing wave rear chamber.

Industry Reviews

Industry Reviews of the M3 Family

"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,


"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,

Customer Comments

Customer Comments about the M3 Bookshelf Speaker 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
