Thanks for the photos.

It really IS surprising to see how much deeper the VP180 is.... but to me, even MORE surprising that it doesn't look THAT much wider. That makes me think that I really could have a VP180 someday without it looking ridiculous in my room.

When it comes time to replace my 46" DLP, I'll go with something wall-mountable...likely a 52" or 55". Then I can lay a VP180 right across the top of the current A/V cabinet.

Old photo, but it'll give you an idea:

That is where my VP180 will reside right across the entire center console.

my vp-180 is on top of the 60" rear projection TV... I moved the right m60 out of the way, put the 180 on the ep-600 then onto the TV, if your going to put it on top of a TV it would help having a second person...

Please pardon the home renovation project.





the vp180 has 2 DVD cases under the back feet right now, for 1" of rear elevation, i think im going to get some 1.5" wood to increase the angle slightly.

the 180 has feet screw holes on the bottom like the towers, for either the rubber feet that come with the speaker, or spikes if you choose to buy those. the 150 did not have any mounts for feet.

Edit Reason: address the feet question

All you guys make me sick.

Dakkon, thank you for the pictures and especially for your observation about integration with the M60ti's.

I went to Ace and got some 2" 1/4 20 bolts, to get the angle correct, It would be nice i Axiom would include 2 longer bolts, for those of us who need to angle the center, i would imagine I'm not the only one.


Oh, and for those of you who haven't ordered one. you NEED to.... just do it, i promise you will not regret it. Now I am REALLY glad i did, and can not believe i was ever on the fence about getting one.

The VP-180 has been ordered and my M80's are sitting in the spare bedroom awaiting the arrival of it. Should be a nice upgrade going from the M60's and VP-150.

I asked this earlier, but didn't get a response. Will the 180 sit at the same angle as the 150? I was hoping I wouldn't have to prop it up at all..

Thanks.

Jeff I just took a quick glance at the VP150 and the VP180 and it does appear that they do have the same angle.
