In naughty pine for a center channel application. Fed Ex admitted they brutally tortured it as evidenced by the gouges. Axiom will be building another.

Why is it portless? How does it sound relative to the ported version?

The ported version was too tall for the intended installation. Apparently it balances out the Model T Signatures, twin EP500s, single EP800 and side-mounted QS10s quite nicely.

Slim is now looking for horizontally-mounted rears. He's thinking M5HPs or VP160s.

Hmmm...I seem to recall these are also not as deep as the standard M80.

The M5 as horizontal are a bad idea.

Doesnt seem size is a constraint. Why not towers for rears too? We know he likes it loud.

Really though, he is putting a lot of $ into his system. Does he have a proper design? Just curious is all.

I really hope he is going towards Dolby Surround for 2ch reproduction. It is pretty Awesome!

He can't do towers in the back. They'd get in the way. Horizontal M5s, with out-board rather than in-board facing tweeters could work given his very large space.

Does Dolby Surround for 2.0 require bipolars?

Not required. Monopole is the dobly recommendation, but many are happy with the QS in their installs too.

Andrew made a vid on their youtube channel talking about options. I think in an evolving setup the bipole vs monopole debate is less important than other factors -like using whats is on hand already to save $$. wink

A dolby surround music room is pretty sweet. His setup would be darned impressive I’m sure.

I have Dolby Digital EX and Dolby Digital Surround EX. Any of those the same as Dolby Surround?

No.

Height channels with Dolby Surround Upmixer and it doesn't break the stereo presentation like the past expander codecs.

I have tried both the EX Surround Codecs on older AVRs I had. Pretty bad.

Might be why a lot of people hold out thinking ATMOS isn't worth it. It is big time especially for applying Dolby Surround to legacy content. Hard to believe it came out in 2014 already.

He has the Anthem av60. Not sure it has the upmixer.

Food for thought as I wait for my 8 year old Onk to retire.
