Whenever two speakers are located alongside each other(including the mains)and play the same sound, that sound will be imaged midway between them for someone located midway between them. When the listener moves to the side, the image likewise moves to the side with him, but not farther out than the speaker on that side.

John,

The centre channel was feeding both M22s on either side of the TV in mono, if you will. We were sitting right in the middle of the image and it was phasey.

I have a center M2 and 2 M22s. I miss the bass in the M2 which carries so much dialog and other sound. I wish I had a center M22 or 150. The M2s don't have much bass and they sound a little shrill by comparison to the M22s I think.

I haven't really done much comparison - never heard a 150 so I can't say for sure. Just my impression.

From the specs, the M2 goes lower than either of the VPs.

Or you could look at the in room response specs of the VP150 @ 50hz and the little M2 only 60hz.

Chances are anyone using an M2 will cross it over to the sub at 80hz, so this is a non-issue.

What am I missing? What I saw was the +-3db specs showing the 150 at 95Hz-22kHz and the M2 at 70Hz to 22kHz.

Look below that spec and you will see the +3/-9 specs which is the in room specs I was looking at, it shows the VP150 getting lower.

The Audyssey on the 3808 sets my VP150 to 60hz for its crossover, so I think 50 is pretty close for an in room response.

Either way it doesn't matter as has been stated, most people with that small of a speaker or the VP series would set the XO to 80 for both speakers in question.
