Just curious, when they come out with the M80 V3's come out how do M80 owners upgrade? Do they make the crossovers available for us to instal on our own? Or do we send ours in for them to modify?

For instance did anyone here have the M80 V1's & upgrade to the V2's when they came out? Now that I've heard the M80's and all they are capable of I wish I could have been there at Bobs GTG with the SongTowers. I don't care how bright they may or may not have considered them to be, they all had to have been astonished by the bass they put out. He did mention that fact in his posts actually. While tryng hard not to heap too much praise on the Axioms since he'd become such a Salk fan, he did mention that they put out a surprising amount of bass that shocked everyone at the GTG.

You know he had too be smiling when everyone's eyes popped out of their heads! Lol

Like the B&W 802D? It would be cool to go to one of these get togethers some forums organize. There is one going on out west this month that will have the Songtowers and a pair of M60s. Too bad its out on the left coast.

Edit: Here's the original thread.

I would love to hear the SongTowers. In my limited audio experience the “smooth” speakers people gush over just don’t get the highs right. Which is why I quickly narrowed my search down to brands like Focal, B&W and eventually Axiom. IMO it’s easier to EQ or (tube amp) a speaker to sound smoother with harsh recordings than to replace highs that should be there from the original source.

If there was ever any doubt in my mind that my M80s or M22s were “harsh” or sibilant when it wasn’t coming from the recording itself I put that to rest by A/B comparing them with my Sennheiser 600s. A sibilant sounding recording on my Axioms sounded the same on my Sennheisers. Ended any doubt in my mind full stop.

IMO Bobs M80 experience was doomed from the start based on the power of suggestion from posts in other forums. Plus he seemed to want more of a social experience in his speaker purchase than just an auditory one.

One nice thing I have noticed recently is that with the silence of a certain brands fanboys, do to the companies “issues,” you’re not seeing the “made my ears bleed” comments cropping up any more. If I were the suspicious type I might suspect a little disinformation.

Just imagine my title at an air show "Superquad, the supersonic gimp"!!


Cam, I just read an article in Automobile Magazine where a guy put a jet engine on the back of his Truck. Nice install, cool deal, and he really uses it. Calls it a Hybrid.

And I can't pass up the chance to use my goof-off pic twice in one day, but Cam flying looks like fun.

Cam could use that as a new avatar and change his username to “Wheels on Roids” or maybe “Wheels in Space”

Yeah I wonder how the Axioms would fair at a GTG? Most of those guys have spent between two and five thousand dollars on their speakers, so they probably wouldn't like a pair of $1200 dollar speakers showing up and performing as well as they do.

Do the M60's pump out the bass like the M80's do?

Only read about them but I think they are pretty close to the M80s which IMO have very good bass.

I didn’t read about the GTG but if it’s a group of a Salk owners It’s likely which they will prefer Salk and the same is true for a bunch of Axiom owners prefering Axioms.

Hope they do some blind listening. When I demo’d the my M80s against my friends B&Ws there was now doubt I liked the B&Ws better no contest at all…that is until we did some blind testing. Blind testing evened things up quite a bit to the point that for price vs performance the Axioms were a no brainer.

The SongTowers AFAIK are a different sounding speaker all together than the M80s. At which point if you are use to a particular sonic signature a new one should be more noticeable.

Interesting to see what they have to say. Salk owner have always seemed respectable in the forums I’ve seen them posting in so I think there opinions will be worth hearing.
