Nope, not going to admit that. I still think they look silly, though it looks better than the photoshopped pictures that are displayed on the storefront which look horrible IMO. I still believe it is a step backwards, the magnetic grilles are a step forward.

I think the new drivers look great, as do the old ones.

Even though they aren't technically full range speakers, the M80's (and VP180 I would imagine) do a great job of reproducing bass IMO. You should at least try t out and see what you think.


The VP180 is indeed as impressive as the M80's when set to large.

Well, I think the magnetic grilles are a bigger step forward than the Al caps are a step backwards, so they still end up at least slightly ahead grin

Hi , what size id your tv .

I have the same stand with a 50 inch panny and VP-180 and am able to get stand on top shelf .

[img]http://forum.blu-ray.com/album.php?albumid=571&pictureid=4680[/img]

I have a 60 inch Kuro Elite, the stands' bracket to raise the Pio off the top shelf was not wide enough to fit the TVs' mounting holes, so it sits on the top shelf. It took some top frame and support post drilling, and I made some risers to raise the second shelf up an additional 2 inches.
It worked out well.

Micah, you reminded me to change the cross over, i changed it to 40 hz, instead of 60, i don't know if it will make a big difference or not, i guess we well find out.

I guess I will need to do the same... Didn't think so many setting changes would be needed with a new set of speakers...LOL

You should basically start over with the speaker set-up when you change (or even move) your speakers.
Are yo using Audyssey?

Yes I am using Audyssey. That does make sense since I am dealing with all new front speakers.

I will have to check, but does Audyssey adjust the crossover during calibration?

That's a fact, I recalibrate going from the VP100 to the 150. I'm sure going up to the 180 you'll need to do some adjusting.
