Currently I have a VP-150 and a pair of M60's...

Goo morning HTG,
I can't speaker from experience but check out the June Axiom News letter, they have some comments on the M80 V3's

Now I am in a tough situation again...LOL I am normally the type that will get the latest and greatest. It just seems like a speaker that was built a year ago should go well with the VP-180. The guy selling the used M80 V2 is going to hold them for me until Monday. I would have already had them but I didn't have any room to take them with me on Friday.

I will be curious to see how the 180 matches up to some older M60's...

I agree with Rick (wid) save the coin and get the V2, if you aren't happy (which I doubt) resell the V2 and move on to the V3.

My Vp-180 just arrived, and like everyone else has said there is pretty much no comparison between the 180 and the 150.. Big thanks so SRoode for making this happen, i have been calling and asking brent for a larger center for about a year, but SRoode, put his money up, so the rest of us could enjoy a larger center as well..

as many know the new speakers have magnetic grills... i'm guessing Ian is of the go big or go home philosophy. the magnets are pretty damn big! With other manufactures the magnet grills are known to get "knocked off" .. I have some B&W speakers that have magnetic grills, and the magnets that B&W choose to go with are 1/2 the size of the axiom ones. the grills on the B&W's come off pretty easy, the axioms you have to work at a little bit. This was the first thing that impressed me about the new design was the grill, and the magnets...

here is a B&W magnet, the magnet is the inner part, it is inside of a metal housing.



now the axiom magnet.


i looked at the measurements for the vp-180 and the vp-150 to try and get an idea of the difference in the size of the 2 speakers... well you can not really appreciate the difference until you have a 150 sitting ontop of a 180...

now a vp-150 ontop of the vp-180





The vp-180 goes great with my m60 ti's,

Thanks for the pics dakkon that’s a great visual representation of why the VP150 could never keep up with the M80s. wink

YIKES....Better not let my fiance see those pictures bc I just picked up my M80's today and will be ordering the VP-180 tonight. lol

Does your VP180 lay the same way the VP150 does or do I need to prop it up?
