This T2 has nothing to do with cyborgs or a very buff Linda Hamilton. Instead, it’s Axiom’s answer to a clean looking low-profile TV setup.
Designed to disappear into the wall, these units are perfect for left- and right-channel placement. Measuring 11.65 by 6.4 inches, each speaker rises a mere 5/8 of an inch about the wall surface—an all-time low for any of Axiom’s in-walls.
“Whether mounted on the wall, in the wall, or in framed by a false wall, entertainment systems have become as elegant as a wall painting. In fact, to many people they’ve become just another form of art,” said Ian Colquhoun, Axiom’s president. “Our new T Series loudspeakers pay tribute to this trend by virtually disappearing into the room’s wall or ceiling.”
The units have the same 1-inch tweeter and 5.25-inch woofer found in Axiom’s M2 bookshelf speakers. Other features include a frequency response of 22kHz to 70kHz (+/-3dB Hz) and an SPL of 86 dB (anechoic) and 90 dB (in-room). Available in four colors, which includes a paintable version, the grille can also be painted.
The T2 speakers are the first in the company’s T Series line. They are available directly from Axiom, for $446 per pair. A center channel and tower speaker will start shipping September 1.
