Hi Shawn,

It can be done without having to send your LFR1100 speakers back but we will need your DSP for a code change.

No... shawn,

You send the DSP in. They send the DSP back + the new woofers.. You install new woofers (quite easy) and then you send the old woofers back.


BTW, beat you to the upgrade... wink you must of been working or something....

Brent, it's Bill. Send me an email quote for my cherry chestnut M80s to M100. I'm a dead man when Grace finds out.

Dibs on the M100s... grin

Alex, you mention the "new woofers", but does Ian's description seem to indicate that all fourteen drivers(not including the tweeters, of course)are to be replaced?

But, what about the M80 upgrades or is this not possible ?
would it really make a difference swapping out the drivers ?

Hi Troyd

It really isn't possible to just put these new LFR woofers in an M80. They are designed for a tri-woofer system so we would have to make different driver for use with the M80s. Even if we did this it would also involve a crossover change. We can upgrade the LFR1100s because it is already a tri-woofer system and we can make the changes required in the DSP.

Thanks Ian,

that's hat I thought that the crossover would atleast need changing.

ok so, by reading the graphs of the M100 and M80 the M100's are pretty well flat from 70 - 500, whereas the M80 have a +5db bump at 130hz ish. Also, this is where the main dialogue is at in and around the 100 - 200hz range. So, performance wise I should notice a tad better performance here. The other thing I notice, is the dip at 50hz on the m80's however, the fall off from 50hz is more smooth with the M100's. I will not notice any more punchier bottom end with the M100's than the M80' s ?

am I reading this right ?

Also, depending on the cost to upgrade from M80 two months old to the M100 is probably not worth it, right ?
