Yours has an analog output. So you can connect it to a computer to log your data...or it could work in conjunction with an acoustic analysis program. I wish mine had that.

Mike,

Have you tried an M22 horizontally above your screen, and the other M22 situated horizontally below, but opposite array?


No...that would be a major PITA. Plus, I just don't like the way vert speakers look on their sides. Vanity prevails, I know..pathetic but I put a lot of work in the room's aesthetics and don't want to muddle it up.

They aren't centered on the speaker, nor is the lable.

He's got a point. I wouldn't want to do that, either.

I wonder if the opening I have going up the stairs is the killer for me or is it the lack of treatments?


Mojo, as you know our basements are virtually identical, but I have a wall going down my stairs. I have considered removing the wall and building a plexiglass wall so that it allows light into my basement, at the same time limiting sound transfer upstairs. I am not concerned about a really dark room because it is more of an entertainment room rather than a dedicated home theater. I've seen pictures of this being done on the Internet and I like the look. Just a suggestion.

Cam,

That's an interesting suggestion. I'm not sure how much the plexi would limit it. I'll have to look into that. I have another problem however and it relates to having room to move furniture. Thanks.

It would also be interesting to try the two M22s in series with the VP100 in parallel with that series pair. Two M22s in series should produce as much SPL as a single 100. This combination will result in roughly a 5 Ohm load.


I am going to try this "three speaker" center channel, but I don't know how to wire the speakers as mentioned above. I understand how to wire in series/parallel separately but wiring series to parallel is confusing me. I will be using three speakers that produce a 8 ohm load. Will the ohm load be the same?

Please help

I wonder how 2 VP150's side by side would sound. Up that one and do this above and below the display!
