I need to win the lottery. I have an epic 80 800 7.1 system in high gloss piano black with an a1400-2 amp calling my name in my cart for $10,200.

Any chance axiom might have a half price sale soon? smile smile

Call me crazy, but for some reason I really like the look of the high gloss black finish with white grills....

Maybe if I end up driving to Axiom's 30th, I could bring my V2 system and swap it out for V3's, it would be worth the 16hr drive, lol.

For the Axiom guys and jokes apart, is there any way for us, existing V2 owners/customers, of getting the upgrades, drivers and crossovers at least, I do not care about the grill...even if we pay for them, of course it will be great to get an speacial price also, or maybe returning the all drivers, etc...My major concern is the crossovers...I noticed that the curve is different, there is a little bump in the lows, on the V2's that now is smoother...

It does seem the V3 has a smother response compared to the previous models but do remember; that curve changes once in your room. Would it really be worth it?

Sovkiller. Yes, Axiom is making the drivers and crossovers available, but I think you would be better off selling the old v2 and buying v3. The difference will probably be about the same as buying all the drivers and crossovers.

Many have mentioned upgrading their systems from V2 to V3. I'd like to know the ramifications from doing a partial upgrade. They say it's not ideal to have one manufacturer for front left and right and another for the center, etc. How different versions from Axiom?
I have the Epic 50/500 system and I'm considering upgrading my M50v2 to M60v3. The rest of my system (QS4's, EP500 and VP100) would all still be V2's. Would a used set of M60v2's be better?
Or how even would the M50v3 work with older VP100v2 center channel etc?

I called and spoke with axiom about upgrading the crossovers and drivers from V2 to V3. The impression I got is that there would be a cost saving in doing this (maybe buy all drivers and crossovers for both V2 m80's for about price of 1 new m80 v3, maybe a little more?- just a guess though). They said that Ian is still working on the pricing for the upgrades. When he is done, the upgrade components will be for sale in the axiom store online.

Keep in mind that there will be a fair amount of soldering required to replace the crossovers. (not sure of the exact amount).

As long as the price is right, I plan on buying new drivers and crossovers for my m80's when I buy a vp180. If I can talk my wife into it i'd like to get an ep800 at the same time but I have a feeling that might have to wait.
