What are the main differences between M3 Ti and M3 v3 other than the manufacturing year?

Loc: Porch,enjoying Bombay Sapphire
Cosmetically: Ti/V2 - Black Dustcap, V3 - Aluminum/White Dustcap

Parts: Updated tweeter and woofer from Ti - V3. The crossover and crossover point of 2.2khz seems to be unchanged as well as using the same natural/mechanical roll-off of the 6.5" woofer.

DH, note that the v3 curve is labeled "listening window" rather than on-axis. This is therefore an average of several curves over a small vertical and horizontal range(that used by the NRC or otherwise)and isn't directly comparable to the Ti on-axis curve.

The M3V3s I ordered and bought have black dust caps, no magnetic grills, and a sticker on the back which announces M3V2. Nevertheless, I have been assured that they are really M3V3s. I think I bought my first Axiom speakers in 2001 or 2002 and have real affection for the folks at Axiom that I have previously dealt with - Joe V., Amie, Noreen, so when Jean C and the other fella give me their Jeddi "your speakers are not M3V2s they're M3V3s," I walk away mumbling, "OK."

BTW, they sound spectacular.

Yep, they're all great people and super nice. However, it would always be in the back of my mind that they're V2's based on everything you've said.

You could have very easily sent them back as unwanted and then ordered another set, the wait obviously would have been worth it to you to have had the full v3 package.

You know what they say about Jedi mind tricks wink
