I think that if I wasn't "hiding" the VP180 behind my screen, my wife would have a fit too. Then again, she eventually got over my big SVS cylinder sub...

If you sell the M80s and VP180 through Axiom you could always put the Axiom bucks to a set of M22 and VP100 much, much smaller and still that very good Axiom sound, just with out the bass you presently get from the larger speakers but a good sub fills that in for the most part.

Personally, I'd go for M22 and VP150. I've tried both and the VP150 seems to match better than the VP100. But that may because I'm using the on-wall version of centers with bookcase M22'S.

Or use the Axiom dollars towards a future VP160 wink

I am going to look at a couple different options but I am not sure if I will go with another Axiom setup as of right now...

Shouldn't you ask for pics first?

Yeah HTGEEK do not get the VP150, being the owner of a VP150 V2 I have become very disappointed with it. It hasn't aged well at all. It sounds "tinny" and "hollow" and no bass extension. I've played around with settings and positions and its just a bad center channel speakers. I've had it for 3 or 4 years now and its time to part ways with it. Its the only speaker i've had that Audessy can't figure out. Wish I could fit the VP180 or new 160 but just won't workout so I order a Arx A2 LCR gonna give that a try.

Agree that VP180 or VP160 would be a much better choice, but I'd take the VP150 over the VP100 any day. The VP100 has even less bass extension, and that was my point.

If he has the VP180 now there would be no way he would be happy with either of them. I wish Axiom would totally redesign the VP150, maybe a tweeter in the middle with a pair of 5.25" woofers on both sides and a pair of ports on the back. The height and width would stay about the same and bass ext would be around 60-70hrz.
