Also, I want someone to try a pair of these vertically as mains, on stands so that the tweeters are above and below ear level.



Well, which one of us do you want to try it? We're waiting on your decision, come on already, the suspense is killing us!

Anyone plan on pre-ordering this thing? It is claimed to have the same frequency response as the m80's. But, there aren't any specs about the dimensions. It looks like they just took the M80 and turned it on its side and reorganized the drivers, so it should have about the same dimensions as the m80's though I'm guessing. I'll have to see how much I can trade my vp150 in for.

I'm going to look and see if a trade is possible as well. Also need to check to see if the shelf above the TV will handle 56 pounds. Maybe I could test that with the 7 year old ;\)

I wonder what Ian had in mind for the *real* VP800 when he nixed that name for this speaker ?


My guess would be that it would be too easily confused (typo wise) with the EP800. Can you imagine trying to put that over your TV??

Ummm... ok so where is this 'owners club'??? I'm an owner, I thought THIS was our club?



...and for the love of God will one of you 'owners club' snobs post a picture up for the rest of us unworthy non-members!

I'm going to take CV's request one step further... I want someone to buy 7 of these to use in every position of a 7.1 set-up. Only I'm not going to make any bones about it.... Dean, you get the job. Your researching skills have earned you this task. I expect a full report by weeks end. Get to it man!

I must say, upon first seeing this thread yesterday I really had no interest what-so-ever in switching from my current VP150 over to this monster as I've always been quite pleased with the performance out of my center as is. I've heard many people complain that voices sound thin and/or as if talking through a tin can, but I've never experienced this phenomenon personally. So I really didn't think I needed to pay any amount of money for one extra driver when I'm already happy.

But then my curiosity started to grow....

Upon further reflection I started to wonder what my music would sound like (since I listen in 5.1 now-a-days) with the extra bass and all from the two bigger drivers in this unit. And now I'm on the fence, so I was wondering what Axiom is offering in exchange for sending your VP150 back in and ordering one of these? If the difference isn't all that much, then perhaps I'll consider it more seriously.






...oh who am I kidding? If I'm already 'on the fence' on day two, by Monday I'll probably be packing the VP150 up and sending it back already!!! \:o

I'm thinking they should have added two 12 inch woofers on either end, named it the VP880, and everyone would be happy!

Loc: It's all about the location.
Micah, the Owners Club is under the "Store" icon. As I remember it, you just sign up online.

added: you might have to register your speakers first.
