Awfully nice woodwork, by the way! smile

I have the VP150 center and with having to build up a whole new home theater, and the cost of finishing a basement, and a kitchen remodel, etc etc etc with the new house we are getting, I won't be able to upgrade to a VP180 unless I got a good amount of Axiom bucks for the VP150...

So I was thinking about keeping the VP150 center and ADDING another speaker above the screen (VP100 maybe), but now I wonder about the VP150 above the screen and something like a M2 under the screen. Anyone ever do something like that? I really like the look of Chet's gear and room (nice warm wood), but it has me thinking.....

I believe that Mike has a VP150 over 2 M22s as his center channel glob.

I have an M2 above and a VP100 below. Maybe soon a VP150 below. See picture on my signature. The M2 above added a lot of dialog detail.

Sense I love my new m2 so much I got thinking about center channel designs.... If the vertical speaker sounds so much better on and off axis why doesn't Axiom make a vertical array center? I am no speaker designer, but having the tweeter above the mid driver seems to be the way most centers are built. They are usually flanked by a bass driver on either side like this.

I remember reading that the vp150 had side tweeters to help with off axis response but after owning the 150 I can tell you that it didn't work very well.(in my room) Maybe its just A.D.D. but this thought just popped into my mind. Has this been discussed before? Or am I just crazy smile Anyway just some random thoughts.
Here is another center that I thought was a great idea after deciding that a bookshelf speaker is the way to go for a center speaker. The larger box and front firing ports would deepen the low end.

I think that the ideal situation would be to have 3 identical vertical front speakers, but you knew that since you mentioned that back a few pages. As for the reason for the designs, I will let someone like Alan speak to that.
