Ahh, so you have the VP180 stand? Nice-looking setup.

Nice! There's also a larger stand available called the EP800, btw.

That's what I picture in my head when I think of a "wall of sound."

Nice. smile
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

That's cute!
E = MC2 = ((2M80 + VP180 + 4QS8)/(EP800 + EP500))^(ADA1500 x D2v)

Nice! The VP180 is leveled to the M80s tweeters but don't you find the TV to be a bit high for comfortable viewing? Do you find an improvement by having the 2 EP500 that close vs 1 sub only? Thanks.

Thanks everyone. Bruno, yes the TV is too high - but we're used to it and too lazy to lower it. I love the extra bass afforded by the two 500s...I'd have more if I could afford it grin
