Q. I read on the Axiom forums that the M80′s can be placed as close as 2 inches from the back wall. I’m hoping the same is true for your new VP180 centre speaker (this is important to me as the room I have has an angling bulkhead, which means I would need to mount the projector screen on the ceiling fairly close to the wall). Can you please comment on how close the 17-inch-deep centre channel should be placed from the wall? —B.PLog in

At Axiom, we’ve been researching different driver arrays and enclosure designs for center channel speakers, following up with double-blind listening tests, and we’re now ready to announce the new VP180, a definitive no-compromise center channel that delivers the same extended deep bass, tonal neutrality and spatial transparency as Axiom’s critically acclaimed M80 and M60 tower speakers.
The VP180 uses six drivers: two 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofers, two 5.25-inch aluminum midranges, and two 1-inch titanium dome tweeters in a horizontal array arrived at after months of listening tests to music and dialogue program sources, on- and off-axis.Log in
