Axiom M60 vs. Athena AS-F2 speakers

While waiting for uncle sam to send me a tax refund figured I'd research new speakers for my home theater and music listening a bit more. So far I've narrowed my Subwoofer down to the SVS PB10-isd or HSU stf-2 (~ $450).

Before ordering the Athena speakers I wanted to see if I could get a comparison between Athena AS-F2 and Axiom M60? Are the Axioms worth $500.00 more to those that have heard both?

My listening habbits will be 65% movies 35% music. The room size they will be in 15.5' x 12.5' x 9'.

If I build an Athena Surround system with AS-F2s it would cost about $840.00 in Athena audition speakers.

If I build an Axiom M60 based system it would cost $1360.00 in Axiom speakers.

The other thought is if both the AS-F2 and the M60 would be considered overpowering for that size of a room building an Axiom system with M22 mains would cost $923.00 and is an alternative I've also kicked around.

Thanks for the help

In my experience, the M60 just sounded more detailed with better staging all around than the Athena ASF2.
