I'll be driving mine with my emotiva XPA-5 amp @ 300wpc 4 ohms continuous via my 5507 pre-amp, what you have driving yours, do you think it's enough power or do you think you need more, i know they have a high sensitivity rating?(91+) I know that XPA-5 is plenty!


I am using an ATI 1506 in bridged mode(3 X 450 bridged) for the front 3 channels with my Denon 3808CI as a preamp. I'm sure your amp is plenty powerful for that setup.


WoW, 450wpc Good Lord, you are not one to do without power huh!?!

OK, sorry to get this offtrack again... but what is the policy going to be regarding replacement drivers for the older versions?

no problem, i already put that question out there. i haven't heard anything so, guess we'll have to wait until we hear from axiom. perhaps for folks with registered (guessing that you can register or it is done for you at the time of purchase) gear that has the "older style/coloring" of the drivers they might just make a vp180 for them with the original drivers that would match what you have. that makes the most sense to me. it would only be offered to you if you have proof (via serial numbers or invoices) of prior purchases. everyone else, on everything else gets the new stuff.

what do you think of that? (just putting it out there)

I'm surprised there's not a warning on the amp using it in bridged mode with speakers less than 8ohm.


Nothing in the manual for the amp...based on what has been said on here by Alan and Ian I'm sure the 80's and VP180 can handle it.

It's not the speakers I was referring to, they can handle the power. Normally most home audio amps that can be bridged do not recommend being bridged with a 4 ohm load.

Well I've been using it like this for a few years and as I said nothing in the manual about it...the only warning in the manual is in regards to making sure your speakers can handle the output of the amp.

I like the look of the old drivers but oh well. For those who already have it. What do ya think compared to the 150? I gotta wait till next week to play with my 180.

I'm going to jump on the aesthetics train here and say that I don't care which style I have as long as all of my speakers match. Being a grill off listener, I'm not going to lie, it matters to me. I'm hoping Axiom will give us existing customers a choice to change to the old drivers, or give us a 'deal' on the new all aluminum drivers for our other speakers. I for one would be willing to swap my drivers out with the new ones and be a happy camper, I kinda like the new ones.

How about it Axiom, how much $ for four bass and four midrange drivers? cheers.

Ps, I love you Axiom for making the VP 180!! \:\)
