It was an idea borne of Axiom fans on the message boards . . . a monster center channel capable of delivering spine-tingling clarity in voices, regardless of the size of room or distance from the screen. It had to be big, it had to be loud, but most importantly, it had to be accurate.
Enter the new VP180 center channel speaker. This 56-lb beast thrilled our most critical listeners, Alan Lofft and Ian Colquhoun. Alan said: "As an especially critical center-channel listener, I'm excited by the music and dialogue accuracy of the new VP180."
You've never heard or seen anything like this speaker before: a no-compromise center channel that will thrill you with powerful dynamics, bass extension and musical transparency. The VP180 unleashes a magical performance, offering the truest presentation of a movie or music soundtrack, exactly as the engineers had intended.
This center is the perfect mate to Axiom's M60 or M80 tower speakers, yet can be coupled with all speakers to deliver the level of high-fidelity and transparency your system deserves.
The VP180 uses six drivers: two 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofers, two 5.25-inch aluminum midwoofers, and two 1-inch titanium dome tweeters in a horizontal array arrived at after months of listening tests to music and dialogue program sources, on- and off-axis. All this is contained within a ported, bass-reflex cabinet, with a 4-ohm impedance.
Remember, this center is not for the faint of stand! At 56 pounds / 26kg, you'll need to either floor-mount it, taking advantage of its tapered edges to angle the dialogue at the listeners, or you'll need a very sturdy stand, such as our new dual-custom aluminum stand. If you'd like to floor-mount it, just call our toll-free number to order the inverted configuration.
