Oh, realistically speaking, I'm not concerned at all. I'm very happy with my M22s and QS8s and if I happened to get the v3 componants (haven't checked yet)... double bonus! If not and I only have the v2s... I'm very happy with my purchase! \:\)

And I couldn't care less about magnetic grills. I never take them off anyway.

Again, the changes announced are merely cosmetic. Axiom's been shipping v3 drivers and crossovers for several months now.

That's the state I'm in. I just bought my custom M60s a month and a half ago. Would have been nice to know. \:\(
Don't get me wrong. I love my Axioms and I'm sure I have the v3 performance upgrades, but I sure would liked to have known the magnet grills were coming. I would have waited.

You can't help human emotion. People are people and form opinions based on their feelings. I can see there are some hurt feelings here and you can't change that.
I have a feeling there will be some future sales to return customers lost over this.
I know I would have liked a heads up.

I bought my speakers about a year ago, so I doubt I have the V3 components internally which is a little disappointing, but like others have said things are always changing and really there is not much you can do about it. If you are happy with your system I would not sweat it :).

I bought my M80s 7 years ago, damn I don't think I got the V3 either \:\) I did, just a short while ago, buy a VP150 and 3 QS4s which I assume has the V3 components and to my ear they mesh very well with my old, but in perfect shape, M80s.

I'm not complaining but the timing of the release of the new VP180 coinciding with the release of the new v3 version speakers a little closer would have been nice ... I'll only use my example:

Had I known that my mains would have been outdated to the new “The changes that you've made to the M80s are not subtle. It is that different!"M80v3's this soon, I would have ordered my new VP180 in an upgraded finish to match my probably soon to be new M80v3's in the same upgraded finish rather than matching the new VP180 to my existing vinyl wrapped M80v2's.

To be quite honest, the fact that I just purchased a VP180 in vinyl to match my current M80s is probably enough reason for me to not jump onto the v3 upgrade wagon.

For you newer folks, the gloss and upgraded finishes were not available at the time that some of us older folks bought our speakers.

If you are an oldtimer on the forum does that mean the next speaker purchase needs to be in gray and they come with hearing aids?

It also means that the speaker needs to be wide enough to accommodate an array of hats facing backwards as well.

In an upgraded finish.
