I am attracted to a system comprised of L, R and a Center channel only. A subwoofer is a definite "maybe" at some time in the future, but more likely not.

Intelligibility of center channel dialogue seems lacking with my present set up which is M22 On-Wall for L&R plus a VP100 for the center.
The receiver is old but is in perfect working order and has adequate power with 100 watts/ch. But, the owner's manual clearly states
CAUTION
Use speakers with the SPEAKER IMPEDANCE indicated by the speaker terminals"


Those terminals are, needless to say, labeled 8-16 ohms.

So, it seems clear. Not recommended. Even forbidden!

I'd like to use M80 On-Wall and a VP180 without buying a new receiver, but . . .
What would the most economical receiver be that can safely handle these 4 ohm Axioms? I am not concerned with extreme SPLs in my living room.

That receiver has an overload detection circuit in it and will annunciate "OVERLOAD" on the LCD panel. If you keep it well-ventilated and don't crank it, it will be fine. Many of us use M80s with receivers not rated for 4 Ohms.

Total Harmonic Distortion of 0.8% and a frequency response of only 40-20000 Hz? I'm sorry, but your speakers aren't the problem, your receiver is.
