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 "monster" center channel, the VP180, this in-cabinet center channel speaker is perfect for custom installations where speakers are being placed into home theater speaker cabinets.

Enter the new VP180 center channel speaker.  This center channel is loud, clear, and accurate!  Reviewer Chris Eberle from Secrets of Home theater and High Fidelity exclaimed: " Thanks to the VP180's extra low-end, vocals sounded as if they were coming from a quality full-range tower. . ."

What would your home theater experience be like if you had this no-compromise center channel?  It will thrill you with powerful dynamics, bass extension and musical transparency. The VP180 unleashes a magical performance, offering the truest presentation of a movie or music soundtrack, exactly as the engineers had intended.

This center is the perfect mate to Axiom's M60 or M80 in-cabinet speakers, yet can be coupled with all speakers to deliver the level of high-fidelity and transparency your system deserves.

The VP180 uses six drivers: two 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofers, two 5.25-inch aluminum midranges, and two 1-inch titanium dome tweeters in a horizontal array arrived at after months of listening tests to music and dialogue program sources, on- and off-axis.  All this is contained within a sealed cabinet, with a 4-ohm impedance.

Supercharge your home theater with the VP180 in-cabinet speaker - audition it in your home theater with our 30-day in-home trial. Includes a five-year warranty and free shipping!

Professional Reviews

Industry Reviews of our Center Channels

"From the VP180 I heard unusually good dialogue intelligibility and rich male voices. The sound was clean -- I never had to strain to understand what was going on."
-- Vince Hanada,


"Thanks to the VP180's extra low-end, vocals sounded as if they were coming from a quality full-range tower; appropriate since that's pretty much what it is in character."
-- Chris Eberle, Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity


"One thing I immediately noticed about the VP180 was how much richer and broader the center channel audio experience was. Compared to my Definitive, as well as countless other center speakers that I have heard, the sound field was wide and extremely dynamic."
-- Dale Rasco,
"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,


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

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

Yesterday, I received your new Center Speaker VP-180. I have heard a lot of speaker systems. Your new center channel is fantastic. When you are listening to a marching band like on the movie "The Patriot Games" the sound "Pans" Left-to-Center-to-Right speakers in a seamless fashion it sounds like the band is marching in front of you!

All other aspects of the sound are just great.
Congratulations on a "Super-Center_Channel_Speaker."

-- Gustavo Menéndez, IEEE Senior Member


The Center Channel Vp150 is simply out of this world!! The sound is crisp and clear....I can hear things I never heard before, and I'm watching all my DVDs again!! You guys rock!!!!
-- Nicholas M., NY


Once again you guys have gone above and beyond all expectations.  Both customer service wise and musically.  I order on Friday and here it is in Dallas, TX by 1pm on Monday.  Unbelievable.  I am in the business of customer service and if my clients did half of what you guys at Axiom.  I wouldn't have clients anymore!

On the music side I will say this.  I was orginally using a Sonus Faber center channel along with the axiom 60's for the front of my home theater.  I rather whimsically decided to try Axiom for my center channel last week.  I tested my Axiom 150 center channel today and there is no comparison.  Axiom blew it away.  Tonal accuracy was unbelievable and I heard things I had never heard before on DVD's. 

Thank you, Thank you for being there, everyone at Axiom!!! Oh and the punchline is that I paid over $1000.00 for my Sonus Faber center channel. Ouch! Please pass this on to you research and development team and whomever else you think might want to hear about this comparison.  I would like for them to know.
--Matthew D., TX


The VP150 is truly the best center channel I have heard that does not cost thousands of dollars. It tops Paradigm, PSB, Mirage, JMLab Chorus, Athena, and all those other companies out there. It's loud, it's clear, it's detailed, and it's very much worth the money. A true audiophile speaker at a true budget price.
-- Ravi S., QC CA

I recently received your Center VP-150 and all I can say is WOW! I have a very large room and have tried many solutions over the past 3 years with no luck. The VP-150 exceeded my hopes and expectations. It's amazing.
-- Eric E., CA


I have had the VP150, QS4's, and M2i for about one week now and they sound awesome. They go very well with the rest of my system. I was a little concerned about how the VP150 would integrate with the Magnepan MMG W main speakers. The reason I ordered the VP150 with the other speakers was with your trial offer I could not go wrong and besides the MMG C speaker is not available from Magnepan at the present. Well, I called today and canceled my order for the MMG C. The MMG W's are great speakers and I would have liked to have heard the MMG C with them. But after listening to the VP150, I cannot imagine the MMG C could sound any better. You can sign me one truly impressed customer. 
-- Anne R., VA


I love the sound of the center channel speaker. It is head and shoulders above the quality of the Bose speaker it is replacing.
-- Chris M., TX
