If you are looking for high fidelity that does not take up any floor space or shelf space, the M3 on-wall is your answer. The M3 is Axiom's most versatile and compact stereo and home theater speaker and the on-wall version provides the kind of transparent, neutral, wide-range sound you expect from Axiom, without any of the compromises that plague other on-wall speakers.
The M3 on-wall speaker preserves the sonic clarity of its bookshelf equivalent, the M3. This décor friendly M3 On-wall is a perfect complement to today's modern low-profile plasma and LCD TV screens. The large 6 1/2-inch aluminum cone woofer produces satisfying bass output in medium to small rooms.
Among its innovations, each M3 on-Wall speaker includes a dedicated wall-mounting bracket that serves as the electrical connection to the speaker wire. This lets the M3 on-wall speaker rear baffle mount truly flush with the wall surface for a smooth, self-effacing appearance. All brackets, mounting templates and screws are included.
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! For a little more base we recommend that our match with one of our subwoofers depending on your musical preferences. The M3 on-wall is an excellent choice as an all-round speaker in small to medium-sized rooms. 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, mastersonaudio.com
The M3 on-walls 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 On-walls are a solid choice.
25 years of audio research have gone into making a speaker that is compact yet capable of impressive stereo reproduction, as well as anchoring a home theater system.
You don't have to take our word for it - audition these speakers in your own home. The M3 on-walls come with a 30-day in-home trial, a five-year warranty and free shipping.
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, AudioReview.com
"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, EnjoyTheMusic.com
"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."

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.

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
-- 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.
