Thanks, Chris. I knew there was a reason why series connection is a bad idea, but I couldn't quite remember.

I think we should all chip in and but Chris a cape.

Spandex tights would be totally HIS call, though.

Capes always seemed dangerous to me. It was even pointed out in Watchmen. Now, a kick-ass scuba suit would work.

Mike, I don't have much of significance to add on that point. Since your centers above and below the screen already are anchoring the center channel material to the screen pretty well, there wouldn't appear to be room for improvement in that regard. Since the M22s are quite similar to the M80(and presumably VP180)above about 90Hz, there might be little overall sonic difference either.

Seeing Alan's reply which mentioned listening tests on various combinations, I'll ask about a test I wondered about. My thought on seeing the VP180 was to stand the poor thing upright in a more manly posture and it might perform even better. Were two upright VP180s compared with the M80s as mains, and what benefits/detriments were noticed if this was done?

I guess the crossover point of the VP180 will be the same as the mains?

The internal crossovers for the VP180 are 150Hz and 2.7Khz compared to 160Hz and 2.3Khz for the M80. If you mean the crossover point to the sub then, yes, I would imagine it being the same or similar to the mains.

Is the angle of the speaker sides the same as the M80s or will there be one flat side and, for lack of a better word,and a sloped side. I also have also been waiting for this speaker but will have to modify my stand to get it to fit under the Elite.

One side flat, one side sloped.

I am playing with 1 inch more of clearance needed when using a template I made of the M80 shape. I wonder if having one flat side would let me slide the speaker back enough so I wouldn't have to reconfigure my stand. MMMM

Oh, well OF COURSE!!! What was I thinking? Here I was all worried about hanging that big-ass thing from my stinking ceiling... I'll just buy a house for mine also.

Hey everyone, don't worry about the size of the new VP180, all you need to do is buy a house for it, problem solved.

The launch of the VP180 couldn't have come at a better time really. The US housing market is flooded with excellent homes in which to house your new center channel speaker..... For CHEAP!!!! ;\)
