I have a good friend that is remodelling his basement and wants to put in a HT.
His room size is not very large; 12 x 16 x 7 or 1350 cubic feet.
We discussed speaker options and I recommended going with the in-walls to save space, he also really likes the look.
I was thinking of having him go with the two M2 in wall and one VP100 in wall, two QS 8’s and an EP350.
1. The specs on the M2 and M22 are close, we want to put the sub behind the sofa, is sub placement going to be more critical for the M2 than the M22 since the M22 is a larger speaker.
2. Should he go with the two M2’s and a VP150 or three M2 across the front (or three M22’s)? We are also planning for a 60” plasma for the screen.
Thanks for your help.

I think the sub might be better located at the front of the room as the in/on wall speakers have been noted to not reach below 80hz making the lower frequencies played by the sub more placeable in the room due to a higher crossover point. I do not believe their is enough difference from M@ to the M22 in relation to this to make much of a difference although I would suggest going for the M22 just in case it does for those larger cabinet reasons you mentioned.

I would recommend three of the same speaker across the front if mounting positions allow, failing that the VP150 work.

Paul, since the in-wall models seem to need every bit of bass extension possible, the M22s may be the better choice from the standpoint of a good blend with the sub at crossover. This would especially be the case if the sub was located near the listening position rather than one of the front corners. In any case, three of the same, vertically positioned, would be the best arrangement across the front.


Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
