Questions We Get All The Time

What size room does this work in?

How much power does my receiver need for this speaker?

Where can I put this speaker?

Our most recent addition to our center channel line-up, the VP160, is now available in two versions: Standard Power and High Power.  The High Power version utilizes our new heavy duty 6.5" woofer for much greater maximum SPL capabilities in the bass.  The High Power version would be recommended if you are using a center channel crossover point below 80Hz in a large room and/or with large amp power.   

The VP160 is the best center channel speaker for our award-winning M60 floor standing speakers or LFR660 Omnidirectional speakers but will blend seamlessly with any Axiom model in the front.  Designed to place dialog right in the center of the action, the VP160 center channel features the same 6.5-inch woofers, 5.25-inch midrange, and 1-inch titanium tweeter as the floorstanding speaker, to present a seamless soundstage across your screen.

The result? Everything from the most intimate whispers to booming military commands come through loud and crystal-clear.You'll get lost in the action, instead of asking other people in the room what the characters just said! Prepare to be transported into movies and music. It is the ultimate home theater goal!

This is not a center channel for the faint of heart, though: it's monsterous! In order to replicate the cabinet volume of the M60s (important for creating similar-sounding bass response), we had to go big-big-BIG! And if the size wasn't enough, we added two of our signature vortex ports to give you even more great bass detailing. You will never miss a word again!

Center channels transmit the lion's share of the dialog in a movie or 5.1-channel television broadcast, and the best center channel speakers match your existing front left-and-right channel's drivers - the woofers, tweeters and midranges that make up a speaker. The VP160's driver configuration is the exact replication of the M60, creating an open, spacious, seamless sound that pans across the front of your room smoothly, enveloping you in luscious sound.

The VP160 cabinet is flat on the bottom side and tapered back on the top.  The flat bottom works perfectly if your VP160 is right below or above your TV.    If your VP160 is going to be well below the TV you may want to choose the inverted version available in Customize Yours at no extra cost.  This will angle your VP160 upwards slightly pointing it at the listening position.  The VP160 can be shelf-mounted, placed in a cabinet, or you can place it on our dedicated center channel stand your screen.

Hear everything with the VP160 - audition it in your home theater with our 30-day in-home trial. Includes a five-year warranty on the standard model/ 10-year warranty on the high powered version, and free shipping!

Recommended with: M60 and LFR660

"Musically speaking, the VP150 was a perfect match for the M22s."

"Dialogue through the VP150 center channel was superb. Voices sounded natural, delineated, and unrestrained."
-- Thomas Garcia, AudioRevolution.com

Divider

"The triple 5.25" aluminum woofers deliver a stiff and accurate sound, reproducing crisp, clean dialogue and effects information. This is as clean and balanced a center channel as I've ever listened to at this price range."
-- Clint DeBoer, Audioholics.com

"The VP-150 center channel sounded very natural: male and female voices were unrestrained and blended perfectly with the rest of the speakers in the system."
-- Ray Adkins, Audioholics.com
