I have decided to move my future home theater setup in the bedroom. The room's dimensions are probably 14'x 14'x 10'. I realized I won't be able to play my movies very loud most of the time because my roommate and I work the same shifts.

The biggest consideration for me at this time is money. I know I will be happy with the M22s but I don't want to have any regrets if I get the VP100 and the QS4s instead of the VP150 and QS8s. The price difference is around close to $300 dollars. In the bigger scheme of things, $300 is not a lot of money, but then again it is.

I am really interested in hearing what some of the veterans have to say and those who have prior experience with the VP100 and QS4s. I either want to be pushed over the edge or save the money.

Are you looking at subs?

If you're not looking to be cranking the volume all the time, I think you'll do well with the QS4s and VP100. I haven't personally heard either, but I've "heard" good things!

Sorry I forgot to mention, I will be pairing these speakers up with PB12-NSD and I am currently running an Onkyo 606.

Forgetting to tell us that you're pairing these with a sub puts lives in danger. I'm in the business of saving lives, I eat Marines for breakfast! You wouldn't like me when I'm angry, and you can't handle the TRUTH!!! I have successfully privatized world peace, and along the way I...

When I get a sub, I shall name her The Red October. I will also move to Montana to raise rabbits.

Not Ice bunnies, a new breed of nearly silent rabbits.

With fricking lasers on their heads, if that's not too much to ask for.

Loc: It's all about the location.
It sounds to me that you will probably be listening to your system at modest levels, since you are using it in a bedroom environment. Therefore, I'm sure you'd be fine with the VP100 and QS4 combo...if however, you want to future proof a little, I would upgrade the Q's to the 8's before I would consider moving up to the VP150 over the VP100. This is based on what I've read on the forums, not personal listening btw.

Micah, I think that you're the new leader in the aggressive derailing category.
