Chet, the M2 should serve you very well as a center speaker and blend well with the M80s. The only advantage of the M3 would be a lower bass extension, which shouldn't be a problem with the M2 crossed over at 80-100Hz.

I recently did some off axis listening with the VP180/150 and an M2. The M2 is the best one for off axis listening and is a near perfect tonal match for the M80's.

I bet that means the M2 would make a good ceiling speaker! Yeah. Probably. Possibly. Perhaps. Coulda. Kinda. Maybe not.

Thanks for all of the input. smile
The m3 would fit the space better. but if you think I will get better matching performance with the m2 then I will go that direction. I can always build a little platform for it. I will have to do some drawing and see what I can come up with.

Thanks.

Ok screwed up. I didn't realize that the m2 was ported. The speakers home is in a cabinet so now I am looking at the
on wall or in/on wall m2. The website says they have the same response. Here is a pic of what I have now with the vp150 sitting on two shelves. Both of them could be removed and a solid surface could be installed between the two glass doors filling the entire center opening. Then I could mount the on wall or in/on wall m2 top center. Sound crazy?

Chet, that shouldn't be a problem as long as the M2 has at least a couple inches behind it for the port to "breathe". No speaker should be recessed into an enclosure, regardless of whether it has a rear port. The speaker should extend a fraction of an inch beyond the front edge to minimize diffractions and reflections from the cabinet.

There is about 18" of open space behind the vp150 right now. The m2 would have the same if not more room behind it. I built the center shelf to be adjustable in and out. right now I have it out about 1" from the rest of the surfaces. So I could do the same thing with the m2.

Sure, and obviously there's plenty of room vertically and horizontally.

You should be OK to run an M2 in that space. When I ran the M2 or even my M22s I have about 7" of space behind the speaker for the port to breath and they sound great.
