So, if you guy saw this on the street. And you wanted the speakers, how much would you have paid for them, not counting the sub, which btw, isn't doing to well.

Just curious. I'm trying to figure out if it is worth it to buy a new crossover for $74 for the vp-150.

For the M22s and VP150 alone I would have paid $300. But you also got four M3s? That'd push it up to the $400 to $500 range.

You got an incredible deal. So yeah, get the VP150 fixed for $75.

Sounds about right.

Good to see you back around these parts, Chris.

I hooked them up. They do sound nice. Much better than I expected.

Before you spend money to repair the VP150, unless you're planning to use all four M3s for surround, you might try one(or two)of them as a vertical center speaker.

I did. I put the M3ti and it sounds great. I'm just thinking the VP-150 is going to sound ten times better or something. What do you think?

No. Not ten times better. Maybe not better at all.

Really? Why is that? I don't understand. I thought that was what it was for and was "special."

The VP-150 has three drivers and two tweeters while the M3ti has one driver and one tweeter, so maybe it will sound better?

The meti won't blow up will it as a center?

many people use identical bookshelfs up front, versus a horizontal center channel. There is no "special" to it, it is a speaker designed to be placed horizontal below a screen or on a tv/shelf. There is a difference in how a horizontal vs vertical speaker disperses the sound, but it is not going to be 10 times different.

Why would you say a speaker would blow up as center, any speaker can be used as a center, if it blew up, that would be something wrong with your amp, or someone placed an explosive near it, and in that case you better run.
