I’m sorry for not speaking French (it looks like a French word/company…), but I don’t know exactly how to pronounce this.
I think it should, by the looks of it, be pronounced in one of the following ways:
- khoo-au (as in awe)
- "Q" - ah
Am I close with any of these?
Help if you can; this is driving me nuts.
You need more important things to be nuts about. But I would like to know the answer to this too. The company is German. My guess is “Q-acks” but I really don’t know.

As far as I know QU-AX was named after the dog of Mr. Becker, the
owner of the company. There is a german film “Quax der Bruchpilot”
from 1941 which could be the origin of the dog´s name.
In German QU-AX ist pronounced like “kwacks”
haha, i always thought it was pronounced “kwoo - axe”…
If anyone cares, in France we usually pronounce it “KUH aks”, with a French sounding “Uh”, more like a short dry, “ew”.
Koxx is the company that’s French:)
Mmm, I’ve always thought of it as ‘Queue Axe’ or ‘Cue Axe’ if you prefer.
I’m not too sure, but I think I say something like:
Now, I’m Norwegian (thus a Norwegian prnonciation of words) and not too good at phonetic writing, but yeah, that would be it… kowaX (The big X because I put some extra pressure on that)
I too thought it was “queue axe” until I heard the Qu-ax guy pronounce it differently, I think he said it “kwacks”.
lol… I’ve wondered this myself as I own a QU-AX 24" muni.
I didn’t know either so I’ve been just calling it a “Queue you eh ex” just saying all the letters.
Hmm, we say Q ax. Like the letter Q, then Ax. It does sound a lot better than kwacks.
Everyone I know says cue axe.
I think we should let the company know that they’ve got the pronunciation wrong.
i am going to buy one so i would like to know, correct pronunciation,
with aussie accent of course! if anyone can enlighten me,
also does anyone have a reveiw of the latest QU-AX 24inch muni?
