Version 4 of theater? I'll be glad to just resume working on my version 1.

V1.0 was from 2 houses ago. It was full of crap speakers and a big screen TV. V2.0 was at our "new" place 8 years ago. Put in Axiom speakers, Pioneer Elite receiver, and a nice front projector. It was just in a shared area in the basement that was not good for sound/light control. V3.0 was at the same house in a dedicated room that had great lighting control, but the room was horribly shaped. V4.0 is going to be in our new-new house (just bought it 3 weeks ago) where I have a nice big 1800 sqft basement to work with. The room won't be as big as some other theaters, but it will be bigger than any of my others, with some proper sizing, lighting and sound control, and some new gear (new projector, hopefully a VP180 and QS8's, new receiver, etc).

Well, enough of that, I need to get down to the basement and get stuffing some insulation, and finishing some concrete crack repairs so that I can start working on putting up exterior walls yet this week...

Sounds similar to the repair work I need to do in my basement ht area. I think I will dub my living room set up as I have it now as my version 1. I think it qualifies because of the sound system and how enjoyable it is to watch movies and concerts on.

Closing your eyes and wishing really hard is a tactic, not a strategy.

Pick up another one and use them as mains in another system.

Or... Mount them in the back of your HT room and connect it to the doorbell (with amplification) so that you know when someone is at the front door during a movie. (BING BONG. BING BONG.)

Something new for Axiom to manufacture and sell....

There isn't a really good place elsewhere in the house to set up another system. (Dream dashed, bubble burst, wish.....washed)...

If the VP180 wasn't so amazing, I would just get another VP150 and have 2 centers... oh well.

I actually believe the VP180 killed the upgrade program. There was always a logical upgrade path, but the 180 had us all want to upgrade and it had a dramatic impact on sales of 100 and 150's. My opinion anyways.......

I would guess something like that, yes.

I agree with the suggestion of putting it in a second system (bedroom, perhaps). Another idea is to give it to a friend that is just getting into HT.

Since giving has been put out there, you probably have a local youth club of some sort that would love to start collecting sound gear. I helped a local Boys and Girls club set up a home theater room. It's a mishmash of donated equipment but the kids couldn't care less. They think it's awesome.
