Hello,

I am a proud owner of two m80 v3 speackers.
I checked m80's specifications online and it's different from my m80V3 documents since my last login.

I contact you because i think since the launch of m100 speackers, next Specifications i give here are mixed between m80 v3 and m100 maybe by error.

Thank you very much

actual m100 and m80 v3 spe online:

SPL in Room1w/1m(db):
92 dB
SPL Anechoic 1w/1m(db):
88 dB

m80 V3 manual :

SPL in Room1w/1m(db):
95 dB
SPL Anechoic 1w/1m(db):
91 dB

actual m80v3 and m100 reading:
Freq Resp +/-3dB (Hz):
31 Hz – 20 kHz

Freq Resp +3dB- 9dB (Hz):
25 Hz – 20 kHz

m80v3 manual :

Freq Resp +/-3dB (Hz):
34 Hz – 20 kHz
Frequency Graph
Freq Resp +3dB- 9dB (Hz):
25 Hz – 20 kHz

Hi Adelin,

We are embarking now on updating all the specs on every model. This will take a few months to complete but we will update the website as we go. The graphs will change to be both the listening window and the sound power and the scale will change to 5 dB per division. We will be adding a Max SPL spec too. Any other specs you would like to see added?

The website layout is nice.
i have access to the Owner's Manual on the same page,Payment options and warranty informations.
I don't have any suggestions right now.


I'm sorry to repeat it again but:

Freq Resp +/-3dB (Hz): 31 Hz – 20 kHz
SPL Anechoic 1w/1m(db): 88 dB

it's different from what i'm reading on my m80v3 user manual.

Actual m80v3 specs on axiom website is part of the charts update process ?

Steve will be updating the manual page shortly also so it matches the website update. Thanks for pointing that out.

Ian, have you considered putting an explanation of what the listening window and sound power are (or tell you) on the specs page for each speaker?

Looking at a graph with LW and SP labels may not mean much to some people

Ian, ditto Fred's suggestion. In the "Notes" space below the graphs it would be helpful to describe the conditions of the testing, e.g., anechoic or in-room, angles of off-axis measurement, voltage applied to the speaker, and other factors shown in the NRC results.

There have been seemingly inconsistent data on factors such as sensitivity published on various models, which have made analysis more difficult.

One small error on the EP400 'Specs' Page under 'All Axiom Subwoofers feature:' list:

* Vortex Porting

The EP400 doesn't as it is a sealed type...
