I'll give it a try Michael and Jay, the only arrangement I will be able to try is the VP180 below and the VP150 above the screen. The only reason I have not tried this yet is the load the 6 ohm 150 and the 4 ohm 180 (3 ohms?) wired together will put on the AVR, but it's an H/K so if it works, OK and if not ... time to upgrade the AVR anyway. smile

Jeeesh, Rick. If you were a REAL friend you'd haul that VP180 up to the ceiling and do it right.

I never had one Mike, if you remember JonInFl, he had a stack of Sunfire amps with a pair of M60s ... I've got the Rotel RB-1080. I'll get the VP150/180* combo together whenever I get some time this week.

*With the VP150 above the 180 unless a 'friend' wants to come over and haul the 180 to the ceiling for me. grin

I have been having a good time today. I'm by no means any kind of expert on speakers and sound, but I definitely like my upgrade. I guess the best way to describe what I have noticed would be "consistant" everything seems to be very smoothe and easy on the ears. I wish I knew how to describe it. Last night as I watched movies I noticed there didn't seem to be any dropouts or spikes in any low or high frequencies. I could be just giving placebo affects, but I did run a few frequency sweeps yesterday and it seemed the closest to flat I have ever had in my room. I guess the fact that this speaker is so closely related to my 60's makes everything blend so well. It really makes a difference the quality of the source being played. I have the AIX calibration disk that has some high resolution audio. When I played a few of them I really could not locate the 180 and it felt like I was sitting next to the stage. The soundstage opened up all around me. Itunes on the other hand sounds ok, but I can definitely localize it. I still haven't run across a pan from one speaker across to see the difference in voices across the fronts, but my room is small and I can notice a diffence between the mains when compared to one another. Both are the same distance from a wall, but one is 1ft from a door opening. Overall I have to say I really like what I hear so far.

HTN, the quote was from Ken, which you appeared to interpret to mean T/M had been tried.
