Axiom Audio 

Ian Colquhoun’s early experimentation with the art of sound motivated him to establish Axiom Audio in 1980 in hometown Dwight, Lake of Bays. A couple of years later, he was contracted by an innovative acoustic engineer, Dr. Floyd Toole, to build and test loudspeakers at the National Research Council lab in Ottawa, where Toole’s theories completely revolutionized the industry. Axiom’s reputation for performance and value gained recognition; and, by 1991, the firm expanded its capacity by over 300%. They currently export widely throughout the world.

With 20 employees, Axiom uses advanced computer systems to build state-of-the-art award-winning products, used by major celebrities and studios. The anechoic chamber replicates the one used in Ottawa for research and development. “We’re now introducing cream-of-the-crop wireless products,” said Ian. “They’re powerful but reasonably portable, and can be used in hotspots, even on your boat.” Ian and his staff write the codes and create the programs, ensuring that their systems can be used on all interfaces. Axiom is undeniably one of the best acoustical laboratories in the world. And it’s right here in Muskoka.
