I have an over whelming urge to change something and I have a chance to make an upgrade to my system,but I'm not 100% sure which to do. Since I've never heard the VP150 or the M80s, I'd like to know which would make the biggest impact on my system. I have the M22s as fronts, the VP100 as CC, the QS8s for surrounds, with an HSU VTF3 handling the bass. Do I upgrade the VP100 to the VP150 or do I upgrade the M22s to the M80s? What do you guys think?

This is a no-brainer! The M80s would make MUCH more difference in your system. Just make sure you have room for them.

Not being familar with other Axiom models except the M80s I can say they are an exceptional speaker for $1300. I think if I were in the same spot I would go for the M80s.

Yep, going from the 22s to the 80s will certainly make the biggest impact, no doubt about it. Have you ever heard the 80s or the 60s?

My room dimensions are 12'x 20'x 8', but the listening area is less than that due to the placement of the furniture. The VP100 seems to work just fine. The M22s work well also. I just have this insatiable itch I just can't shake, for a fuller sound than the M22s give me. Room might be a problem, but I got the M50s in there once upon a time.

Your room is big enough to handle the M80s.

I agree w/ everyone on going with the m80, however, you might end up having to upgrade other components like the CC and/or possibly getting separates amps for the M80.
Since you already have a decent subwoofer, what I would do is try and build one of those Infinity Baffle rigs to handle the really low-freq hehehe… or to quench your upgradetis thirst you may buy one of this http://www.machinadynamica.com/machina41.htm (previously posted here)

Very funny

I gots to thing 'bout this upgrade a little while. I'm thinnin' that it might not be as satistyin' as I was thinnin' it would bee. Maybe I'll buy a bag of peanuts, instead.
