What are the opinions on the VP180 vs VP160, considering they will be paired with M100 tower speakers. I currently own the VP180 in my current system, but am putting together a basement system and was debating the VP160 instead of the VP180. I know there's lots of "chatter" about the configuration of the drivers on the VP180 vs. the more traditional configuration (W T/M W) of the VP160.

This will be placed beneath my front projection screen and the lower height profile of the VP180 might work better. I need to cover 5 seats across a single row, with only 3 seats in prime viewing spots aligned in front of the screen. The other 2 would be at significantly wider angle from the screen/center channel - particularly one of the seats.

I'm curious what the thoughts are on both speakers, particularly with their ability to provide a wider dispersion to all seats.
