I've owned some M60 - in cabinets since March 2010 - and been quite happy.

I have them actually installed in-wall style - with the back 15" of the cabinet jutting through living room wall into my garage...

Now - I'm a 'tinkerer' by nature - and considering I can't tinker with my install too much - no moving them left, right, adjusting toe-in, etc., I'm looking for ways to scratch the itch.

Any thoughts? Previously, there's been little enthusiasm here to upgrading caps and resistors, etc..

Does the same thought still prevail? I'm not sure if 3-2010 is current generation... If not - driver upgrades perhaps?

Thanks guys!

Scott

Hi Scott,

I guess I like to think that since I'm personally not an electrical engineer, not an audio engineer, don't have access to proper measuring equipment and I don't have access to an anechoic chamber like Axiom had 'all of the above' when they designed the speaker....

I don't feel that I can add much to the design of a speaker that they have already spent a lot of time tweaking with all that gear and expertise.

I would suggest that, instead, you turn to tweaking the next biggest effect for your audio fidelity... your room. There may be a lot of things that are changeable in your listening room to experiment with and make improvements.

I also understand human's built in desire to 'tinker' though. So have at em, if that makes you happy.

If you want to replace the caps and resistors go ahead, no one will stop you. Will it improve your SQ, I doubt it, but you never know, you might have a marginal component and replacing could enhance the SQ. If you do let us know how it turns out.

As the others have said, your efforts might be better spent on tweaking the room.
