FYI, just spoke with Brent and the following will be available for purchase individually via the website in a couple of weeks. These are the current prices, but he said that they would be close for the new 'stuff'.

tweets-$46ea
woofers-$51ea
mids-$46ea
cross over-$152ea


Well, if you need to replace everything, it makes a gran total of $876 for a pair of M80s! At this price, you must as well buy the V3s! Even if you have all the V3s part and only care about the look of the all-aluminum, it's still $388 which is significant. I guess I'll just put the drivers with the black caps on the VP180, that way the only cost is the shipping. I would have rather had the all-al drivers though since in the future I'll be purchasing QS8s

When I was 16 I got curious and priced out what it would cost to build my $500 motorcycle buying parts individually.

I forget the details but I think it was maybe 4x the cost...

Yeah, honestly... buying new speakers and selling the old makes more sense!

i had been hearing all over this thread(and from axiom direct too) that the VP180 had as an option only, dual binding speaker post, yet here is a direct quote from the new Axiom newsletter i received today in my email:

"The VP180 weighs in at 56 pounds (26 kg) so sturdy support for this monster is mandatory. Dual custom aluminum stands are offered as a $240 option for the pair with shipping starting on July 15th. A magnetic grille and bi-wiring/bi-amping connections are standard."

the newsletter list this as a standard feature, so, for folks who have received their VP180 center already, did it come with two or four speaker binding post? Just curious is all so sound off. wink

Loc: It's all about the location.
I believe Axiom asked those early purchasers if they wanted single or dual binding posts, but there would be a slight delay if they chose the duals(part supply?). It's my understanding that the early shipments therefore had the single posts(correct me if I'm wrong).

Hi solarrdad,

That's an error on my part. The biwiring/biamping dual sets of binding posts are an upgrade on the VP180. When I originally wrote this piece, I made an assumption that was incorrect and I missed it when I proofed the copy for the newsletter.

Apologies for the error.

Regards,

Alan Lofft

just got my email that my order has shipped today. i'll check the tracking later tonight and tomorrow as nothing is showing up yet. i expect to have it early next week (i'm guessing of course) maybe Wednesday or Thursday (Monday is a holiday in the USA) of course i'll know once the FEDEX tracking system adjust in about a day. Axiom recommends waiting for 2 busines days before checking. i would imagine that for some folks depending on where you live it could be to your house inside of 2 days! no chance of that with me being in the USA in Virginia! of course i don't know how it was shipped, ground, third day or what. i'll get back to you all later once i get that date!

i'm so happy my 3 new addtions are on their way! and all V3 of course! This is the first time i've ever been able to start out at the top of the line, flagship in speakers of any brand, hell, actually anything, this is the top of the line and it feels good too!
