We got moved into the new house yesterday and got some furniture set up. LOTS of unlacking To do but we made pretty good Progress yestderday. Regarding my new monsterous center channel: it's a tight fit but the vp180 just BARELY fits into m tv stand. Tv stand is open on the back expect a thin spot at the center so the middle rear port is about 2-3 inches from this piece. Nothing blocks the other two ports at all. Plan is still to add a wall mounted plasma and put vp180 on axiom stand (pricey but I like the look).

Vp180 was from auction and I can't find a single flaw. However, the finish doesn't perfectly match my m80's from 4 years ago. The vp180 ha More wood grain texture and all black with no grayish silver highlights. I thought they had changed the finish but when I inquired they said it would be the same as my old speakers. No worries here though as it's not really noticeable at distance, and I would have bought through auction anyway to save $$$.

do you gave it on the side so it angles up slightly?

Wow, lots of typos im my post... Posted from iphone on a bus. Yeah, i was surprised that it fit. Good thing it did because I wasn't sure how I was going to mount it while I was saving $ toward the new tv.

Next axiom order will be for 2 more qs8s but that is a while down the road.

I'll post back with impressions once I get everything hooked up.

Not sure as i just put the side down that had the screw holes for the rubber feet (but the rubber feet wouldn't fit). I'm looking for something to wedge into the front to angle it up a bit more. Once I get the custom axiom stand it will be a little higher. For now, I'm just happy that it fit.

The fact that it fit SO perfectly is a sign that you don't need a new TV.

Yeah, but I committed to giving this one to my buddy who helped me paint wink. Plus, the poor black levels of the LCD rp are starting to get to me after 6 years...
