I am looking to add front height speakers. I have 4 QS8's, two M22's and a VP 150. What would you suggest for the heights? M2, M3?

Thanks,

Shawn.

I'd lean towards the M2s since they have the same drivers and tweeters that you already have in your M22s.

The M2 is supposed to be a better sonic match for the M22. My self have never heard the M2, I started with M3 that are now my height channels, I think they're great.
Though I'm also using my M22 for surround duties for now.

I'd ask the question of what sound does the height channel generate? if there is no bass going to that speaker, and the cross over is going to be set at 100hz or above, does it really matter having a speaker that can make sound below that point? I'd go with what aesthetically looks best.

Thanks to all who replied, was leaning towards the M2, but the bigger is better sometimes is hard to resist.
