I am looking into upgrading my HT system, and I have a few questions.

Which center channel speaker is a better match for the M22ti, the VP100 or VP150? I like the idea of using the VP150, but I am afraid that it might overpower the M22ti's? Also, is the differing impedance ratings an issue (4 vs 8)? On the other hand, the VP100 drivers look the same (and in the same quanity) as those used by the M22ti's...

While I am asking questions, here's another... My home theather is 14 x 20, with the TV along the short wall ~ 3 feet out from the wall. My listening position is about ~ 12 feet from the speakers. Do you feel that the M22ti's are a good match for this room? (** note I plan on using a subwoofer.)

Thanks!

The M22s with a sub will be perfect in your room. Both the VP100 and the VP150 are perfectly timbre matched to the M22s so either will work great in your system. If you go with the VP150 the impedance difference is not an issue and the output level for the center channel can be adjusted in the set up mode of the receiver but I do not think you will find the VP150 will have too much output for the M22s. As for the advantages of the VP150 in your system, it would be the improved right to left imaging of the VP150 because of the array we can use with the dual tweeters.
