Duct tape works best when you wrap it entirely around the TV, Front and Back side.

Hi Tom,
Just read through this thread and I think there are some good options. 1st of all I would say stick with the M2 or M22 over the M3 to better match your M60's. The full bookshelf would be preferred, but since you don't have room under, I'd see if you can make one work above - maybe Mark would like to do some woodwork out west? grin
If above the TV does not work then I think you could try the I/O M2 with some mounting board below the TV as you suggested. Note that I have not heard the VP100, but my experience was that the M2 performed better than the VP150 in my setup. Plus the general consensus 'on the line' (as my 5 year old was saying this weekend) is that there is a gain to be had going to a vertical center all other things being equal.
If nothing else it will be a fun experiment!

Cheers,

Thanks, Dan. I couldn't remember what else you had compared the M2 to, so that clarification is really helpful and encouraging.

I think putting an M2 on top of the TV will only get me mockery from the missus.

You guys are helpful. Much appreciated!

I always though Axiom should sell speakers with a mirror finish. This would solve the problem for you. Mirror finished speakers would seem to blend into the environment, and she wouldn't even know a speaker was there.

Kind of like "Predator", right?

Placed an order for a single M2v3 iw/ow. Note: even though the "add single speaker to cart" from the main page calculates at $169 (the old, full price), if you go to "Customize" and then specify a quantity of 1, the closeout price is applied.

I'm hobbying!

It's under a big chunk of cherry wood in your shop.

I had some good plans, but I never had time to go forward with them!
