I am thinking of upgrading to the v2 in the M80s. I am very happy with my M80s but I am nearing retirement so after that happens may not be able to do a lot upgrading. My question to those who have owned both is there that much of a difference noted? Also is the VP150v2 an improvement over the original VP150?

How old are your Tis? There were some significant improvements made between the Ti and the v2 from what I know--mainly in the crossover, but all of the drivers are newer, too (although they don't really look much different.) I don't know that there were major improvements to the VP150, but Axiom does make tweaks to the lineup all the time.

Let see I got the Axioms back in late 2004 I believe, also noted I have (4)QS8s that I don't think need replacing. If I go for the newer versions I would sell the ones I have to perhaps offset the costs. Also to appease the wife who always has been skeptical of my, ahem, AV hobby.

Axiom does have a trade-in policy, so they might save you the trouble of selling the old ones. Check it at http://www.axiomaudio.com/tradeup.html

I'd definitely consult with Axiom directly.

Thanks, I checked it out and may do that if I can't find a buyer. The VP150 does not have any trade in value so it may make selling the Front 3 a go for. But I have some options now, I would still like to hear from owners of both versions to give me some differences they found between the two.

Ahh someone from T-Town! I did email Axiom and was told the xovers were tweaked and a more open midrange was accomplished, also improved tweeter rings. Most the other changes deal with non-audio items, carpet spikes etc. Do you own the M80 v2s?

I recently went through a process in the trade-up program exchanging 2 M60's and a VP150 for "piano gloss" M80's.
Just as an option, If you want new M80's look at maybe upgrading the finish which increases their price and that will then give you trade-in value for your VP150.

I'm sure you already have the V2. The changes were implemented in 03.

Well, the major changes. There have been quite a few minor changes.
