Thanks everyone. Does anyone know the specs on the speakers? I can't find them on the site the m3ti. Like the sensitivity.

The ti series is not going to have significantly different specifications than the current V3 series. They have been improved, but I don't think those improvements will be readily apparent from a spec sheet.

The NRC measured the sensitivity on the M3Ti to be 86.0dB (averaged 300Hz - 3kHz, 2.83V/1m)

Won't that make them hard to drive? I thought that's why Klipsch was always 93+ for that reason. (keep in mind I have no idea what I'm talking about).

That's about average sensitivity for a loudspeaker. You will also gain some sensitivity when the speaker is placed in a real room.

Klipsch and other horn loaded designs are typically known to be high sensitivity speakers (in the 90's). This is design trade-off that is done on purpose.

As BlueJay pointed out, the NRC measured sensitivity, using their standard, was 86DB for 1 watt. At that time I recall that the Axiom spec was 89dB. Somewhat surprisingly, most but not all of the current models were shown with a 3-4dB higher sensitivity(e.g., the M3 at 93dB), which would represent a doubling of efficiency. The M80 spec remained the same at 91dB. This variance was pointed out here quite some time ago, and a clarification requested, but nothing was forthcoming.

Do those longer speakers look like m22i?
