Keep in mind that I am currently using two M2i's for surrounds. I used to run a 7.1 when I was stationed in Japan but the current room I am in now doesn't allow for the additional two back placements so only running a 5.1. With the M22Ti's, VP100 and the M2i's, sound has been acceptable for all of these years but my hearing has declined and of course have decided to upgrade. Adding the M60's and the VP180 will substantially improve front sound stage. I would think, any upgrade to the surrounds at this point, even if just upgrading to M2V4, would be an improvement. Honestly, I am not looking for blow my head off sound lol. Just more volume and and great quality sound.

Maybe before sending the M22s back, try them out as surrounds.

Just talked to Debbie this morning and it's a go on the M60's and the VP180! I feel like I got a great deal and a huge upgrade. Can't wait to hear the difference the larger and more modern speakers are going to sound!

Curious, does anyone know how the trade-up works? I will be sending in the M22's and the VP100. I have heard nothing from Axiom about when I send them or how I will need to send them. Do I need to send them in before the new speakers ship or in a certain amount of time after I receive the new speakers? Will they send shipping boxes for the speakers to ship back in?

The great thing about this is that you don't need to send anything back right away. You can put the old crap smile you're listening to side-by-side with the new gear and hear what you've been missing all these years...LOL! As for the shipping boxes, you can use the boxes from the new gear to pack the old gear. Use one box for each piece though and stuff lots of newspaper in there. Deb says it works better than bubble wrap. Confirm all this with Deb though before you start packing. She may want to send you new shipping boxes. You may want to wait a while because I'm sure they're going out of their minds over there right now fulfilling Black Friday orders.

Awesome, thanks Mojo! Guess that means I get a chance to hear how the M22's would sound as surrounds after all wink

I use my M22 as front height they are wonderfully massive in that config. My soundstage is huge. Well past the limits of the walls roughly 2 or 3 feet away.

Brendo, how did you do that? I have a massively wide, deep and tall soundstage but it's only 22 feet wide which is the limit of my walls.

I made some acoustic panels, The thickest ROXUL in wood box with decorative fabric. Made a huge diff. with my soundstage.

The actual width of my living room is similar 24 odd feet. open to the rest of my suite on the left. With 17 feet of window on right So I guess it's only so wide. Still a wonderful wall of sound.

I did something quite similar but I left my side walls completely reflective. It made a big difference but my soundstage doesn't extend beyond the wall boundaries. I'm not complaining.
