Questions We Get All The Time

What size room do these work in?

How much power does my receiver need for these speakers?

Surround sound is the most exciting part of home theater - and Axiom's QS4 surround speakers place you in the center of the action. Using unique multi-directionally firing drivers, the QS4 has woofers on the top and bottom, and tweeters left and right, to provide unprecedented envelopment for all listeners.

"The QS4 surround speakers' ability to produce sound 360 degrees around my sofa was simply remarkable.  These speakers are also much more forgiving in terms of placement than typical bookshelves. -- Suave Kajko, CanadaHiFi

Sound is transmitted in four directions (see diagram), tricking your ears so they can't tell where the speaker is. All you'll feel is complete immersion in the movie or music soundtrack. Unlike traditional direct-radiating surround speakers that have just two drivers, the QS4's four drivers effectively mimic the special sound effects of large Dolby movie theaters for all seats in the room.

"The noise from the ever-present rain was very well reproduced and the reverberations in the underground tunnels shrouded me in a very convincing manner and really gave me the impression that I was in a cavern." -- Francois Lemieux, Quebec Audio Video

Surround GraphicThe unique Quadpolar configuration of these speakers was developed by Axiom using extensive research and controlled surround-sound double-blind listening tests. This means your surround-sound experience will be more convincing, more realistic for movie soundtracks and multi-channel music playback.

This is a great choice for small to medium rooms, using moderate to high amplification. We recommend this surround speaker with our M2s, M3s, and M50 tower speaker. Binding posts are high-quality 5-way gold-plated connectors.

There are several mounting options for this easy-to place speaker. You can use the free included T-Bracket to flush-mount the QS4 on a wall. Alternatively, Axiom's Full Metal Bracket will let you tilt or swivel the QS4, for placement on angled wall or bulkhead. We also offer a Full Metal Ceiling Bracket so that you can hang the QS4s in the room. We also recommend the specially designed FMS QS that allows the bottom woofer to fire freely. Please note the speaker cannot sit on a bookshelf - it has to be elevated.

Why not try the QS4 in your home theater for 30 days with our in-home trial? Includes a five-year warranty and free shipping!

"This system provides a true high-end listening experience with both music and movies and is a steal at its price."
-- Q & A with Don Lindich


"Thanks to their multi-directionally firing drivers, both the QS4s and the QS8s add tremendous three-dimensionality to the audio. . .  a friend made an observation: 'these are the best surround effects I've heard in your home theatre.' "

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

. . .last night I was looking out my window to see whether it was raining, but then I realized that the sound was actually in the movie I was watching.  I am truly amazed at the the truly surrounding sound that the QS4s create. My roommate actually mistook the sound of the EP500 subwoofer for our downstairs neighbors knocking their ceiling!! Thank you! I am very satisfied.
-- Andre N., GA


I want to let you know what a wonderful addition this QS4 has been for my home theater as the back surround for 6.1! I've always read and been told that my room (12.5 x 12.5) with the sofa only 1 foot from the wall was too small for 6.1 to make a difference. However, I was always annoyed at my ability to localize the rear channels when off center from the room, or by turning my head slightly sideways or up and down.

The addition of a 6.1 speaker has made a world of difference. I cannot localize any of the speakers. The rear ambience is now perfectly seamless! My wife typically regards my tweaks and upgrades as frivolous, but even she appreciates what a difference was made by the 6.1 upgrade.

I had previously tried using direct radiators for 6.1 and did not like or think it made a real difference. The quadpole design is perfectly suited for the rear channels. Thank you, Axiom, for creating such great speakers.
-- Daryn S., IL

I am very impressed that such a little speaker can produce so much clear all-around sound! I have not even mounted them on the wall yet and they sound fantastic. My jumbo sized old speakers didn't even come close to performing to the same level of sound quality and took way to much space!

Friends of mine have wired their whole house with your speakers so I knew I would be happy! And I am.
-- Paul B., OR


THIS is what surround sound is supposed to sound like!! 
-- Frank W., NS


I got 2 QS4s surround speakers(to replace B&W 601s) and when I put power to then I was extremely happy with the sound that came out, or should I say "WOW". The dispersion is excellent, as my wife put it they are lovely and blend well with the decor, the quality at this price point is great. When I need more speakers to replace the front three B&W's 602s they will come from Axiom. Gee, I hope they wear out soon or maybe I should just sell them.
-- Michael P., TX
