Fred, I'd agree that those owners who didn't receive the email should check directly with Axiom if they're interested in taking advantage of the offer. One point that indicates that this wasn't intended to be narrowly limited is that the email states

Well, the Audyssey guys always said, go with Wides first because it'll have more impact than heights. I guess it's the same idea? But ultimately, I guess it'll be individual preference (mono vs multipole) hsb

You can always call Axiom and ask. I never got the offer either, but I don't think they have a valid email addy for me any more. I would expect that this is why you did not receive one.

No. not everybody got an offer. I've not been a long standing customer but have dropped in excess of $5000 in the past year with Axiom, so it can't be based on sales amount that they cut people from the list. I might have picked up a sub or someth

New Stuff is fun! Good for you, Mark. This thread is exactly the sort of thing that makes this such a great place. Except, it makes me miss Bob.

One improvement of the VP150 over the VP100 you will miss just by turning it up. The VP150 actually plays frequencies that are just a little lower than the VP100. This was an enhancement to male vocals. I know because I've used both. If I had to go

I'm so glad I skipped the VP100/150 and went directly to the dual M2s. I seldom have issues with dialog. I do think that either the VP160 or VP180 would be a further improvement though.

I might try to add blocking between the joists and run the test again. If still bad I'll add plywood to the underside and omit the resilient channel for that small section. 1/2" drywall would work and would be invisible after completion. Grea

Thanks all, this is helpful input. Perhaps this week I will try simply increasing the center channel and see how I like that across various sources. That is certainly cheaper...

I was thinking about it last night... Consider the current depth of your floor joists, use one size smaller spanning the same direction as the current, these would be supported at each end but not connected to the existing floor. Only the PJ would be

I went from an in/on-wall VP100 to an in/on-wall VP150 to an in-cabinet VP160. I considered each one an improvement over the other.

I find that I need to keep the CC a few dB "hot", as do many others here. I noted that my new receiver even has a shortcut to raise the CC to increase intelligibility. I liken the dialog mix to Hollywood's version of the loudness wars. D

I like your rack idea. I have to ceiling mount in this case because eventually we may do 2 rows of seating. Head shadows are the worry here. I have to get the projector closer to the future planned "bar stool row" behind the couch.
