does anyone know if there will be a v1 or v2 driver/crossover upgrade to a v3 package? Thought maybe it would be on the site.

There was going to be; haven't heard much about it recently. It's relatively expensive, and not an easy upgrade to do. I'd advise contacting Axiom for more info.

It may make more dollar sense to sell your V1's or 2's and buy new V3's unless you have a custom finish you might not want to part with....something to consider.

There was quite a lengthy forum discussion on this topic already in the Version 3 thread of the "What's new at Axiom" subforum.

If I were you, I'd CALL Axiom rather than just "wait".

Does anyone have any specs or pictures of the V3 cross-overs for the M3V3?

They're probably not as pretty as you'd like them to be.

I would suspect 2X6 there would be little to no changes. According to the specs, the crossover point is the same and I believe it still uses the mechanical roll-off approach. If there have been such changes to a full crossover they have not been stated. According to Axioms stance on crossover components you shouldn't expect any enhancements to the build quality in the V3 crossovers either.

There was a picture of the M80 v3 crossover over at the blu-ray axiom speakers thread but I can't seem to find it anymore. IIRC the layout of the components looked different from previous versions but can't tell much else from just looking at a picture.
