I‘ve never auditioned the M80’s ti or v.2 version, and as such, cannot claim to like or dislike this loudspeaker.
I have always been cautious of loudspeakers with an overly complicated driver array. Not just Axiom products, but any loudspeaker. Every time you add a driver, complications arise in crossover design and dispersion characteristics. These can be compensated for by proper design, and execution of that design, but it all adds to the cost of manufacturing the loudspeaker.
All loudspeakers are designed with compromises, to what extent is up to the designer, and cost is usually the biggest consideration.
