What AV cabinet are you using that can support the VP180?

I was looking at some of the salamander, but the center channel shelf is not tall enough to support the center. I also looked at BDI furniture and not wide enough to fit the speaker...

From what i've heard the off axis performance of a centered tweeter, like on the VP160 will be your best choice. That is what I will be buying next.

Love to see what you end of going with, as i'm thinking i'll have to build my own shelf.

I have a BDI Corridor 8179. It is beautiful. Looks very good with a VP160 on top.

I am considering getting that exact cabinet, but i will have a UST projector on top which is why the speaker has to be in the center shelf... would the VP160 fit in there?

You think the VP160 would work well with the M80s? Or does it go better with the M60s?

The 160 is only more similar to the M60 driver config. It will play well with all Axioms I think. With my M80s my 160 is wonderful. No noticeable difference in Timber at all to me.

I agree. I run M80/VP160 and am impressed.

The only time a 180 ought to be considered is in applications where the 160 is not loud enough.

I just got my M100s V4s last week and will be going with the VP160, no question about it! I guess I need to update my signature!

Hi Listener

The shelves in the BDI Corridor are adjustable, but I don't think placing a center speaker inside the cabinet would be ideal for sound quality.

I never tried putting the VP160 inside the cabinet, so, just a guess.
