HTGEEK i tried to elude to it in my post, it will be fine, just get some long bolts.
i would recommend 2 2" (1/4 20) thread bolts, with 4 nuts, and 4 washers. Thats what i used to get the angle correct. It kind of depends on where you are going to put your center? are you going to have it on top of a 5' TV like me? or a stand like Jake? the geometry of the vp-180 appears to be the same as the 150, so if your 150 upside down, with the angle side down and it works, then you should be able to put the 180 in the same orientation as the 150 and be fine. however, with the 180 having the treaded holes, you can use some bolts, to get a "more exact" angle like i needed to do.

They have the exact angle as the VP150.

I like the look of your M80s + VP180. Not only more sonically pleasing I imagine but the VP180 looks better next to the M80s too.

They sound as good as they look for sure, I had to do a little chop/shop on the stand to get the VP180 to fit but it wasn't too bad a mod to do.

The first thing I threw at the V3s was Dire Straits "Brothers In Arms 20th Anniversary Edition Multi. Ch. SACD. Now I had the Oppo default to 2ch on SACDs but switched to the 5.1 ....Wow! Was all I could muster, it was so effin sweet sounding. Oh yeah, the Oppo now defaults to multi. channel. Be back in a few days I have some music to listen to! grin

Wow! That looks so good that I'm sure even Dr.House would have to reluctantly admit that maybe, just maybe, he overreacted when he commented about how the new dust caps were a big step backward.
