Not from what Ian et al were saying when we talked about it last. I'm not certain about the final product.


That's interesting, I would've thought for sure it'd be flat on one side like the VP150. Maybe they tried it and couldn't get it to sound as close to the M80 as the dual taper cabinet.

I imagine most of these are going to go under the screen/display anyways, so the taper will help direct it up towards the listeners ears.

Loc: It's all about the location.
If the bottom *isn't* flat, then the stand must also have an angle on it to match the taper on the cabinet. There would certainly be people who would want it firing straight out, where others might want some angle to get the best performance. My guess, and that's all it is, would be a taper on one side equal to or similar to the inclusive angle on the M80.

That would be my guess too. Hard to tell from the pic but it does look flat on the bottom, assuming the stands aren't tapered (and I don't think they will be).

OK, I just ordered one with stands. I didn't have much choice after whining for the last two years that Axiom should make an M60-based VP250.

I do think the new speaker deserves a higher number than VP180, should be VP350 at the very least ;\)

I still feel a twinge of guilt for not buying an EP350v3 since I talked about *that* one so much that Amie started cutting me off in mid-sentence whenever conversation headed in that direction. Then again I already have a big-ass subwoofer but I sure don't have anything like this.

Did anyone else check the date when they first saw the picture to make sure it wasn't an April Fools joke ?

Rick, if you look closely, those say "BigFoot" on them. They are meant for a different centre \:D

Ian said that the bottom is flat on one side and angled on the other, like the VP150.

That makes sense. It gives the user the most flexibility.

Ah, ok. I had been confused on that when they were telling us about it.

John, I suggested they call it the VP800. Oh well.

I agree Ken, we were told differently during the conference call, but I know the subject was mentioned. Maybe they took our suggestions. \:\)
