Hello, I just bought a pair of M80HP and a VP180HP. Wow is the VP180 massive! If I look at the VP180 on the Axiom site there is a picture of it on a pair of Axiom speaker stands. However, if i look in "Accessories" i don't see a specific stand recommended for the VP180. Is it really just 2 x VP160 stands or was there a dedicated VP180 stand that is no longer manufactured? I don't want to go the route of sitting it on top of a long TV stand so hoping there is a speaker stand solution. Thanks for any feedback.

Regards,
rdwarner

Hmm... the VP180 page does mention a dedicated stand and includes a link to it, but the page throws a 404 error when you click on it.

I don't *think* the VP180 stand is a pair of 160 stands but not 100% sure.

There definitely was a (two part) stand and I have one for my VP180.

If nobody from Axiom happens to see this post then it might be worth a phone call.

EDIT - I take it back... the VP180 stand in the pictures *does* look a lot like a pair of VP160 stands. Still worth giving Axiom a call though.

My VP180 is on stands, but was ordered many years ago so can't remember if it was unique to that model.

We do have an FMS180 Stand available. It is just the picture has not been updated to show the single pole on each side. Here is a link to it: https://www.axiomaudio.com/fms180-center-stand

Those look different than mine, mine look like two of the VP160 stands on each side.

Looks good... somehow makes the VP180 seem a bit less imposing.
