Andrew,

I would be very interested in an upgraded woofer for the M80. I have 3 in -cab M80's now for left, right, and center speakers.

I would love to see a bigger surround model. Don't know if you guys are already working on that.

Keep up the good work guys.

You could call it the VP "St. Peter".

I'm just thinking of the improved horizontal dispersion.

Why would the rear drivers be aimed anywhere other than straight back? They're slightly angled out on the LFR1100s because of the likely configuration where there's a cabinet or something else in between the mains, but an omnidirectional center would assume open space between the mains.


Ah, better horizontal dispersion in a vertical model. That makes sense! But I think only if the drivers are arranged in a line, no? So that requires a taller cabinet which would move some drivers further from the screen?

I assumed that the back of the LFR cabinets was angled in part to help direct the sound around the cabinets themselves. If so, I'd think it would be more important to have the rear of an omni-directional centre speaker angled also, as it would be more likely to be oriented parallel to the rear wall. (Not to mention that it is likely that a screen located above or below would partially obscure the reflected sound. Thus in my case with a screen below my centre channel, I assume angled up or left and/or right would be good options but down would be bad.) Then again, that WAS just a guess on my part. Perhaps Andrew can help explain what kind of space needs to be available around an omni-directional centre.

Does this warrant a new topic?

Good one, Peter, although some of our members may miss the theological reference!

Ian: Am I reading this correctly, the outriggers are included with the M100s!

Just bumping this thread because I want to hear more about whether people would be interested in some kind of Center speaker incorporating the new woofers - call it a "VP200" or whatever. There was some interesting discussion but then it tapered off. Was this because you all thought that such a speaker would be too big and/or too expensive?

On a related note does anyone have any idea how many such speakers Axiom would need to sell to make producing it feasible?

Hi PatCase,

Sorry, I just saw your question about the outriggers. They are an option with the M100.

Below are some pictures of the first production of M100s in the wood shop. I will post some pictures of the final stage of the woofer production on Tuesday (Monday is a holiday here) and then it will be final assembly, testing, and shipping.

I finally sent a call in again, where I will be home hopefully to get my cast woofers and midrange drivers for the LFRs. I just don't like the idea of sending the DSP box back, but I am sure I won't regret it.

Thanks again Ian!

Edit: Brent beat me too the call, it's a done deal. Thank you Brent!
