Thanks Steve, that's good news!

Hi donlboy,

The minimum distance required from the back of the VP180 or M80 or any other Axiom rear ported speaker model to let the port breath is only 2 inches.

Putting any speaker close to a wall, and even more so close to a corner, will give you quite a boost in the upper bass region. It does not matter if the ports are in the front or the back or if there are no ports at all. It is one of those things you just have to try and if you seem to have an overpowering and muddy bass then you need to move the speakers away from the wall a bit.

Thanks JC. I was going to say that it would seem to me that just like M80's, the trick is to move it around until it sounds right to YOU. We can all recommend our own suggestions, but in the end, everyone has a little different opinion on placement.

Being a geek I just had to measure the port diameter on the M80 and it is (drum roll please) 2", so one port diameter away from the wall just like the subwoofer port rule of thumb.

So how far away should you set the EP series of subs with the oblong port? ;\)

I'd go with one port height away, since the height is the constraining dimension.

would the VP180 overkill for a M60 setup?
also, would it sync nicely with the M60?
Any of you here have heard the sound of Klipsch RC64 center? Does it blend well with the M60/M80?
the items are in my cart but really undecided if want to click "buy now" .....

I haven't heard the Klipsch.

I believe that the VP180 would sync VERY nicely with the M60 and would not be overkill at all.
