160 ordered. I never got the stand so I'm still figuring that one out. I think I have an idea how to do it neatly with my setup. I got tons of time to figure something out, but I'm certainly curious to hear it. Still gotta sell my 150 too.

I went from a 150 to 180 years ago and love the change so far smile

I got my VP180 just about 2 weeks ago. No joke that this thing is a beast. Bigger than my M60HP's. I got a b-stock one at an amazing price, less than what they are right now. Kinda wondering if I should have gone with the 160 after reading some of this. It replaced a VP100 On-Wall. No comparison there.

The VP180 is an amazing center channel. My only regrets are that I could have probably saved a little money and had another amazing center channel in the VP160. It just wasn't an option at the time.

So you will still really like the VP180. I am VERY happy with the 180 that I have.

They are both great speakers. I am not a pro but, just found that closer to the centre channel I prefer the VP160. When I was upstairs in a bigger room and 5ft further away, te VP180 was amazing. Thats the issue I had, I am 10 ft away now. and it goes low enough that the cross over cuts in

Mine will be here late next week. Assuming no more winter storms. The waiting...it kills me.

I just got in a a VP160 to replace a 13 year old VP150... Not sure why I waited so long to replace it other than being stubborn and hard headed...

I think I found a peerless mount that can hold it. Good for 100 lbs, so I'll still have the floating look the 150 had or mostly. This is a big center so this will be interesting if works. If it does fail, it's only about 20" off of thick carpet floor. A simple box slightly underneath it until it earns my trust and we shall see.
