Put your answer in context to the Dustin's question. He is asking if he should upgrade his VP180v3 to a VP180v4. You had said that more movies are paying more sound through the middle speaker so you upgraded and it made a big difference. But as Dustin already has the biggest center channel speaker Axiom makes, would he get as big a bump in sound as you got from going between a small VP100 to the much larger VP160? That was what my reply was all about.

If I were you I'd do the M100's first then save money for the upgraded amp and VP. I'd also keep checking the B Stock and Refurb stores for a VP180HP. I snagged mine there for a great price!

Good luck and happy listening!
