Just a quick update for anyone interested. The stone cutting did NOT go well. Currently the speakers are installed but it looks terrible. The problem is with the new design of the on walls that hang on power brackets verses the old version that inset into the wall I had to leave a 3/4 inch space to insert the new speaker and slide it over the power bracket. So now I have a 3/4" hole over the speaker in the stone which looks bad. Additionally some of the other cuts were poor. The good news is I contacted the contractor who originally installed the stone and he still has a box full in his garage! NICE! So he is coming this weekend to remove the stone around the speakers and rebuild with replacement rocks that are cut to fit. Looks like I will be stoning the speakers in fully so they will only come out by cutting away the stone above. Oh well, I am sure I will love them as long as I did the M22's... 10 years or so.

BTW as far as sound quality. WOW, the repurposed VP150 as fronts really sound great. Nice upgrade from the M22. I think Ian should market them!

Its all hearsay without pics . but on a more serious note, glad its up and running and you like what you hear. Lucky the contractor was able to hook you up ,hopefully it wont be too cost prohibitive.

Okay, looks like I am done. wasn't exactly the direction I was hoping to go in but I think I should be fine for some time. As stated above I struggled to get the new speakers installed in the stone due to the way the brackets work now as hanging brackets versus the older straight install. I cut the stone and hung the speakers to find a huge gap on top and poor cuts on the sides with more visible gaps. So basically I had to have my contractor rip a bunch of stone off of the wall, install the speakers and completely stone them in to make it look good. The good news is I used my old M22's for 10 years without wanting an upgrade so I am confident I will go at least that long with these (I'd better because they are not coming out without a hammer and a chisel). Here is the progression....
