Hello,

Just working out various configurations in my head. I have read that using an M22 or an M2 would be more ideal than a VP150 for hirizontal dispersion purposes. I was at first thinking about three M22s for the front stage. Now, i am wondering if the M22 as a center would be able to keep up with the M80s. Money is a factor and a VP 180 does not fit the budget.

Seeking

I think there are some that have used M22's in combination with M80's with good results. My experience is only with the VP150 and now VP180...

I'm using the M22 as a center along with M80 mains, and it works for me. Superior to the VP150 it replaced.

Doesn't Mike (micheal_d) use two M22's as centers with a pair of M80s in his HT room?

I have always liked/prefered my M22 as a center with my M80s vs. the VP100/150 I have/had, but the M22 is too tall to fit under the TV, at least until I get the OK to raise the TV up a bit more.

An M22 or even an M2 will “keep up” better with the M80s than a VP150. It is also more easily re-tasked later should you decide to get a VP180 you could buy another single M22 or M2 and use them as Wide or Surround Back speakers or even in another room. Also they are both less expensive than a VP150.
