I received my new Epic grand master system last week and I must say it is awesome, still tweaking it though. My question is I am planning to buy a wide screen tv down the road, maybe a year or two, and not really sure how big yet but was wondering if the center, vp 100 would be fine or should I exchange it for the vp 150. The vp 100 sounds great now with our little 32" but wanted to take advantage of the 30 day gaurentee for the 150. Our current room dimensions are 15x15x8 (LxWxH), I also have a new Yamaha v-750 and HSU Stf-2 sub. thanks alot!

I have the 150. But, in room the size of yours, I would think the 100 would be just fine.

Welcome jrmav. I've got a VP100 in a 16x22x10 room and it does just fine. If I had just a bit more room to place it, I would have gotten the VP150, but I haven't had any second thoughts. On th eother side of the coin, the VP150 gets a few more points on your man card.

VP150 is great, but so is the VP100, from what others report. Bear in mind that the VP150 is quite BIG. Bigger than the M22's...

Seems to be a "size of the room" thing. If you have a medium sized room (like yours) then people comparing vp100 with vp150 don't see any real difference. In a larger room the vp150 seems to be a bit better.

My guess is that distance from speaker to listening position is also a factor. If you are 15' away from your center speaker (ie the whole width of the room) then you might find the vp150 a bit better. If you are sitting more like 8-10 feet away then vp100 is probably the way to go.

I have a 13x23 room, sit about 8' away from the center, have a vp100 and no regrets. Might be worth giving Axiom a call and getting their opinion re: when to go with vp100 vs. vp150. Their advice seems to be pretty good.
