Joe,

It would be great if you can give us your opinion on the MVP144.

Jason,

Can you also set up the MVP294 \:D ?

That's a 1.85 Ohm load.

Hi John,

We found that the single, vertical M22 created a "column" of sound instead of a "wall" of sound. I think you are saying the column of sound is the more "correct" effect out of the two. But we found the wall of sound to be the preferable effect as the column sounded too narrow.

I guess I could when the M80s arrive to replace the M60s in the mains deptartment!

You think my Amp will support that low? Do I get yours if it does go up in smoke! Or better yet Axiom sends out an A1400 for testing purposes!PLLease???

I know mine should just shut down but you never now.

So, do you think that running 2 x M22's are that much better and worth the money over the VP150?

The 294 is 15/100/22/22. I think you need some sleep \:\) .

Alex,

I really do. The 16% more is definitely worth it. Note that it is a 4 Ohm load though compared to a 6 Ohm load for the 150. And the 150 is a little narrower and does have a different geometry so make sure you examine all of these aspects for your application.

Interesting, though I must confess I am glad that no of you are genetic engineers...

One thing that is interesting Tex, is that I get fabulous bass out of my 80's. As you know my room is bigger than yours, almost double.

On many occasions when I've auditioned my 80's in home for people, we turn off the sub so they can just hear the 80's. Many times they ask me if I turned the sub off, if that gives you any idea of the bass my 80's are giving me.

I don't know if it is treatments, placement, or what, but bass has always been killer when I had 60's as well..
