Great pics! I LOVE vintage audio. I ran a set of dbPlus 990's for over 20 years (bought new in '87)!!! I only replaced them with my Axiom's about 3 months ago when my stereo system's priority shifted from 2 channel music listening to 5.1 movie listening. That's why I'm the 80'sMan!!! ;\)

Hardly wait for the results of your comparison.

What are the odds of the Pioneers' woofer surrounds holding together for this endeaver? ;\) My '78 vintage Precision Accoustics 10 inchers pretty much turned to dust around '97 or so.

Glad to hear the foam surround has apparently not disappeared after all these years. Those big old 12 inch woofers sure can move some air. I would guess the M80's are nice and tight in the bass area though.

I had a pair of Pioneer CS922A's coupled with a Pioneer SX-1080 receiver back in my old Army days, the speakers wore out a long time ago and I got rid of the receiver at a garage sale for like $25 ... wish I would have kept that receiver.

Cool stuff Randy.
