Is that real wood rosewood, or is that a vinyl version?

Ian what a good Idea, all those trade-ups you really needed to come up with a Idea to get these out the door, that being said my step daughter has just bought her 1st house by herself at 25 years old (really proud of her) and I will be putting my old audio equipment to use again, like m3's - vp150 - denon 4802 - as soon my ksw-15 sub (hoping that axiom has a new ep500 coming out soon) she will need some towers perhaps M80,s v2's or v3... this is so really a timely idea!

Q; will it be possible to change the x-over in any of these older speakers?

Changing the crossover without changing the drivers is counterproductive. Changing the drivers and the crossover will probably be cost-prohibitive.

Hi Ken,

Those are real wood High Gloss rosewood. We should stipulate that as there was a vinyl version for a short time.

It is probably not a worthwhile exercise to try to turn a v1 or v2 into the current version. In most cases both the crossover and some or all of the drivers would need to replaced. Then it becomes more expedient to just buy the latest version new.

Q; are they fully cleaned (in & out) so no extra passengers come with along the speakers? smile

We would not necessarily take the drivers out if everything was working perfectly but we do clean them and touch them up so they look as nice as possible. Some of them are in mint condition, a real testament to the previous owner; we rate those as excellent condition.

just like my M80ti's first versions, they were like the first day they were bought! the only thing any of my speakers ever had (Vp150 and Qs8's) was the screwed bracket thing axiom had at the time so they have screw holes on the back
