Loc: Indiana you hoser!!!!
Just hooked the M80's up to the Denon & I'm listening to the radio... WOW do these guys have surprising bass! They are absolutely bassier than my Cerwin Vega's which sported 15 inch woofers! Holy Cow what are these going to sound like once the EP800 is hooked up???

For all those who don't have a subwoofer right off the bat, the M80's will not leave you wanting much. Of course movies will be a different animal, but music sounds fantastic on these pre-EP800!

(...but we all know what I'll say once the big-boy is playing right... I'll be telling everyone they absolutely have to have one of them!!!)

WOW !!!

Nice setup. I have the same speakers except the EP800..still don't have a sub.

Listened to some stuff on a SVS and will be trying a 350 too. Not sure of EP800..too big.
Am curious to read your feedback after to throw the bad boy in the fray.


Congrats on the new speakers..room feels different once Axioms are hooked up.

I enjoyed Transformers. Could not crank up the volume levels with baby sleeping in the next room.

Congratulations on receiving your order Micah. Can't wait to see the pic's. I could not believe the weights of the speakers, especially the M80s and the VP150.

Try putting them up with the "old" bracket, before they invented the super handy T hanger style.
Then you not only had to hang the damn things one screw at a time but you had to balance a carpenter's level to make sure it was all set up to snuff, dangle a spare wall screw in your mouth and manage to hang onto the power drill at the same time!!
Oh ya, we bought our speakers way back in the 'early' days.
We had to go old school hanging those QS8s!!

They sure do! Those old Cersin Vega 15s probably only have 5 or 6 mm of excursion. Drivers have come a long way baby!

On music, probably not a lot different unless you have some really low synth or double bass etc on the disc. The M80s dig deep. Movies, thats a whole different story. I would love to audition an EP800.

Fred, you're not one of those guys who walked 5 miles to school and uphill in BOTH directions when you were a kid, are you?

Nope, just a quarter mile to the end of my driveway except a short time when I had to walk almost a mile because the bus would not turn around in our driveway. Something about the 5' deep ditch on either side...
