I just noticed Axiom has started putting "V2" in the product name.

I know there was some earlier confusion about that, and I guess axiom is trying to address the issue. Some people might actually get scared and think a new line was released, oh well.

I assumed it was to help differentiate between the real deal and older stock being sold on ebay. Either way it's a good idea.

In reply to:

We are still in the process of adding the v2 to the sites, but it went into usage at the end of 05 / beginning of 06, to differentiate the current generation of speakers from the original ones. Axiom is constantly making improvements to our speakers, and indeed if you look at an original M80 you'll see an entirely different driver configuration, frequency response, and even cabinet design. Changes to every model of speaker have been made since the line was released - input, in some cases drivers, in some cases crossovers, in all cases cabinet design, etc, etc, and after much discussion it was decided that we should indicate that on the speakers themselves. The performance and hardware changes are cumulative over the last two years, and when we had finished the whole line we added the v2 designation.

This is from another post in reguards to the v2 designation, and the programers have started to make changes to the pages and really has nothing to do with the recent eBay sales.

Now comes the fun of trying to determine "fer sure" what "we-all" have!!

Let's see, I got "this" set back in...........

I got the plots for what I got, now I got to get the plots for what I ain't.

Well, I bought my Axioms last Spring (Spring '05) so I guess that I have the current version.

From Axiom regarding the M22ti and M22v2 labeling:

"Axiom is always seeking to make improvements to our speakers, whether these involve small mechanical changes, minor crossover changes, cabinet molding, and the like. In the past, when running changes were made, we didn't alter the model number, unless there was a major upgrade, as in the case of the M2, which became the M2i when we changed the tweeter to the identical model used in the M22, M60s, M80 and all the other Axiom speakers.

When we upgraded the tweeter in the QS4 to the same model as the QS8, the sound quality did not change, only the power handling and overall linearity at louder volumes. So we didn't change the model designation.

At recent meetings, we decided there were enough small changes to enough models to use new nomenclature, hence the v2 designation. Finally, there are no audible differences in the M22ti and the M22v2.

Our site programmers are working to change all the text and references, but it takes time because we've been launching our Custom Wood studio.

Feel free to contact me on my direct line, 1-888-243-3236, 9-5 Eastern Time, Monday to Friday, or call the Axiom toll-free number any time at 1-866-244-8796 - any of our Audio Experts would be pleased to help."

I bought my M50s last spring as well; after the plots for it were published by Ian, so I'm hoping that I also have the latest. Last I checked though, the plots weren't currently presenting themselves on the site, so......

Another piece of fun is in my center and surrounds; all M3s.

It's not much of a problem as the surrounds are my older "SE" version speakers(which I prefer, cuz the stickers are prettier)and the center M3 is a newer non-SE.

I've gotta go through my stuff to find out for sure when I got it.

Just a bit more audio fun to get involved in!
Rich.

I'm sure not everyone will agree but I think the decision to change the model designation without any significant, or at least any notable changes, will just create confusion and cause many loyal Axiom customers to run to their speakers to see if they own the 'newer' model only to be assured that their is no real 'newer' in newer.

Obviously there is no real harm done, only a bit of avoidable confusion, and please don't accuse me of bashing Axiom as I have never been more pleased with speakers or a company and their incredible customer service but the decision just seems arbitrary and so out of character for such a great company.

What do you think?
