New Stuff is fun! Good for you, Mark. This thread is exactly the sort of thing that makes this such a great place. Except, it makes me miss Bob.

One improvement of the VP150 over the VP100 you will miss just by turning it up. The VP150 actually plays frequencies that are just a little lower than the VP100. This was an enhancement to male vocals. I know because I've used both. If I had to go

I'm so glad I skipped the VP100/150 and went directly to the dual M2s. I seldom have issues with dialog. I do think that either the VP160 or VP180 would be a further improvement though.

I might try to add blocking between the joists and run the test again. If still bad I'll add plywood to the underside and omit the resilient channel for that small section. 1/2" drywall would work and would be invisible after completion. Grea

Thanks all, this is helpful input. Perhaps this week I will try simply increasing the center channel and see how I like that across various sources. That is certainly cheaper...

I was thinking about it last night... Consider the current depth of your floor joists, use one size smaller spanning the same direction as the current, these would be supported at each end but not connected to the existing floor. Only the PJ would be

I went from an in/on-wall VP100 to an in/on-wall VP150 to an in-cabinet VP160. I considered each one an improvement over the other.

I find that I need to keep the CC a few dB "hot", as do many others here. I noted that my new receiver even has a shortcut to raise the CC to increase intelligibility. I liken the dialog mix to Hollywood's version of the loudness wars. D

The problem likely arises from the fact that in many movies the dialog is mixed too low to be clearly audible during scenes when there's also other audio content being played. At least a partial remedy is to set the center channel level(not the overa

Just used the $250 Christmas credit I received from Axiom. Turns out it is actually $250 USD so I saved even more on my EP175 Subwoofer. I just got sold my JBL NL150, so I am currently subwooferless and have to wait 10+ days for the EP175 to arrive

I originally used a VP100 that was not ideally placed - on a shelf that was only a couple of inches off the floor & tilted upwards towards the listening area. My Audyssey 'heard' it at 80 Hz. I never felt that the VP100 was particularly defic

Ah, the advantages of a concrete ceiling and having nothing but roof above me. If anything is stomping around on my roof hard enough to rattle the projector, I gots bigger problems. Your room is coming together nicely!
