John, DSP upgrades are free for life laugh. So, just hardware costs.

Ian, the Thiele-Small parameters on the new woofers would be of interest, especially the max excursion.

Alex, a high quality 6 1/2" aluminum cone woofer might run about $60 as a guesstimate(we don't know the parameters), although some are over $100. Then of course there would also be software modifications needed.


John I would be very surprised to see TS released, I asked for the TS on the 4.5 mids via email from brent. It was strictly for comparison purposes versus my testing and was politely shuffled out the door so to speak LOL

Richard, since there's no particular difficulty in measuring those by anyone with the equipment and knowledge, I'd hope that your outlook is too pessimistic.

I don't understand what your saying john?? How is it pessimistic?? Brent said it was proprietary information. This seemed odd since there is information all over the WWW for a lot of different speakers. All I was saying is if they wont give that info via email they certainly aren't likely to give it on the forum.

PS - I have a rig I made myself using REW and I also own a tester I bought from Parts Express, since I had axiom drivers I was hoping to compare my finding versus the manufacturer's specs. I even offered to send him my specs and he could say they were close or they weren't close, he did not even respond to that email.

As you say, the T-S parameters are basic information published by all driver manufacturers to allow evaluation of their products by prospective purchasers. It's more than "odd" to claim that this is "proprietary information". So, I'm optimistic that the reality of the situation will apply now.

I remember about 4-5 years ago drooling over the pics of the M80's, but knowing they wouldn't ever fit in any useable locations at my house.

Now, I'm just left with this weird tic.

Are these drivers going to be incorporated into future M80's?

Ian, how much taller will the M100 be over the M80? Also will outriggers be required?

Thanks
