Here is the M80 graph. All the curves were done in the chamber for both the M80 and the M100.

Thanks ian. To my not really experience eye's the M100 looks to have a huge gain down low ,while the upper range remains basically the same. Given the layout of both speakers this is what I expected to see. On the M100 was there more bracing added over what the m80 has and how does it compare to the extensive bracing in the Model T.

Yes, there are lots of gains down low and even more than is evident in these graphs because they will play much louder before compression in the lower frequencies. The M100 has a window brace between each component so that equals 7 braces, same as the LFR1100. The Model T has three powerful 8” woofers and two additional vertical braces to accommodate that.

Since I have your attention laugh has anything been figured out as far as using the new driver to upgrade M80's??

I can only imagine the boost to bass over and above the anechoic graph when used in a live room.

I think that would be an M90.

Well, that's a surprise. With all that extra throw I thought the new speaker would reach lower than the M80. Unless I missed something, it looks like the same tuning as the M80.

Will be interesting to see some notes on listening comparisons to the M80.

The M100 goes a bit lower but we are already down below 30 Hz so there is not much room to go in that area. The M100 will play a lot louder down there though.
