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?

Based on our latest home theater speaker, the VP160, the VP160 In-Cabinet is the best center channel speaker for our M60 in-cabinet speakers as well as any other speakers in our tower lineup. Designed to place dialog right in the center of the action, the VP160 in-cabinet center channel features the same 6.5-inch woofers, 5.25-inch midrange, and 1-inch titanium tweeter as the tower 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 In-cabinet speaker uses the same size enclosure as our standard VP160 center speaker, but it is front-ported, with a slim baffle that protrudes ever so slightly from the cabinet.

The VP160 In-cabinet speaker is offered in a paintable version to match any custom installation or room décor, or Axiom will paint it for you using a paint code you provide. If real wood is your taste then the VaSSallo version with a solid, real-wood front baffle (not a veneer) that can be custom finished by a cabinet-maker to match the surrounding cabinetry in a home (Axiom will also custom-finish to order).

Hear everything with the VP160 In-Cabinet - audition it in your home theater with our 30-day in-home trial. Includes a five-year warranty and free shipping!

Industry Reviews of Axiom Center Channel Speakers

"Musically speaking, the VP150 was a perfect match for the M22s."
-- Caleb Denison, Digital Trends


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


"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,

"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,

Customer Comments

Customer Comments about the VP160 Family

Below are just a few of the many reviews that our customers have been kind enough to send us.

The first thing I'm playing is Police, Certifiable, because I never was satisfied with the bass. Now I can hear much more detail in the mid to upper bass that I felt was missing before. And when low notes are hit for an extended period for effect, it's sounds amazing.
-- Brian G., MS


The VP 160 just came in. Oh boy is this thing huge :) Got it hooked up and for now all I can say is DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had my daughter come in to listen for a minute. Like me she said what seemed like a hole in the middle is now filled.
-- Richard W., IL


I think I have died and gone to heaven, this looks like it could be the center channel I have been dreaming of. I'll take 2 right now.
-- Jason L, AB
