I wonder what the VP180 would sound like with the bookshelf M22's?

This is good for Axiom, I wonder how many sales were lost because of the 150. I may have kept the M80s if the 150 would have worked for me. The vp150 sucked

I'm happy with my VP150, but I'm sure the 180 will have much greater range and be a better match with the M60/80s.

I've been very happy with our VP150, matter of fact I was going to get another just about the time the M80 based center started getting talked about on the forums and decided to hold off until a definite word came out regarding the M80 based center. I plan on running the VP150 and the VP180 together ... and now I can kick myself in the butt for not getting a couple of the Outlaw 2200's whenever they were on sale just a week or so back.

Just see his other thread. We're unlikely to have a fruitful debate about it right now.

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??

One over and one under. So, a401classic, are we talking Buick nailhead or AMC?

The VP 150 doesn't suck, it just isn't timbre matched to the M80's. When I was playing around with my T2's, I noticed that they were a much better match to the VP150 than the M80's were. Gonna have to kick this one around for a bit. I really don't need a new center channel, but upgradeitis pulls hard on me.... sigh!

On the car front, we're talking AMC, a Rambler, specifically. 1964 770 Classic 2 door sitting in the garage waiting for serious funding to do the resto. I've got a 0.020 over 401 with a stroked crank now displacing 426 ci short block ready to go. I'll be twin turbo charged, so no shortage of power.

Why is the money always gone? Oh, yeah, now I remember.
