I'ts been awhile since i've around these forums....

need advice on this

this is my setup (room size is approx 2000 cubic feet)14w x 22d x 7.5h

m80's v2
vp150 v2
2 pairs qs8's don't know which version
ksw15 klipsh sub
denon avr4802
paliser dual cinema recliner with speaker in headrest & butt kicker

upgraded projector already..epson 3010 with 106' screen







possible upgrades need advice on....

change amp to a 3d avr (anthem mrx 700??)
change vp150 to a vp180
sub.. ep600?

will the vp180 mix well with the m80'S v2's?
is there that much of a difference between v2's and v3'S

I would remove the vp150 on top put the amp stand in the center of screen placement & put the vp180 on top amp stand and the amp pvr bluray underneath the vp180

let me know your ideas on this

thanks

JBG, welcome back. More up-to-date receiver features would be good to have, but I'd give the center speaker a slight priority. Either the VP180 or VP160 should fit in your proposed location and should blend well, regardless of the small v3 differences.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

Upgrade that system with some 10 year old Laphroaig. The rest of your system seems pretty solid.

Of course, I'm thinking of upgrading my Laphroaig with a VP180.

They're still there. East of Dwight, less than one kilometer east of the 60 and 35 intersection.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

the VP180 blended perfectly with my M60ti's, an older version of speaker than your V2's... I don't see why a 180 wouldn't blend wonderfully with your V2's.


On a side note, the 180 was a HUGE upgrade over the 150.. You could maybe run dual centers?

Another vote for the center speaker first.
