Axiom Audio has announced the new VP180, a definitive no-compromise center channel that delivers the same extended deep bass, tonal neutrality and spatial transparency as Axiom's critically acclaimed M80 and M60 tower speakers.
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. The ported, bass-reflex 4-ohm (nominal impedance) VP180 is said to produce the same deep bass, excellent vocal tonality and clarity, and extended high frequencies as two M80 towers, summed in mono.
The VP180 weighs in at 56 pounds (26 kg), so sturdy support for this monster is mandatory. Dual custom aluminum stands are offered as a $240 option for the pair with shipping starting on July 15th. A magnetic grille and bi-wiring/bi-amping connections are standard.
The VP180 is available at AxiomAudio.com for $695.
