With the advent of our new High Powered woofer for the M100 we had a lot of requests to make High Powered versions of the M60, M80, VP160, and VP180 M60 , M80 , VP160, and VP180. So we did. The voice coil has been modified to work in a 2-woofer version as opposed to the 3-woofers that come with the M100s. The advantage to the High Power versions is not so much in the depth of bass but in the max SPL capabilities of the bass and the linearity of the bass down to 30 Hz. For large rooms and/or high volume listening without a subwoofer the High Power versions are the way to go. They will play incredibly loud without any compression in the bass. We have added buttons on the product pages of the M60, M80, VP160, and VP180 to select either Standard or High Power. The High Power versions come stock with die cast baskets and bi-wirable inputs and a brand new 10-year warranty. These High Power versions will begin shipping in mid-December and we have a really good pre-order deal on offer between now and the end of October.

I can't believe you guys came out with an extra-loud version of the M80, right after I got mine.. D:

Will it be possible to upgrade existing speakers by swapping out the drivers?

Hi rcb,

The crossover is also different so it is not just a driver switch but it is no problem as you can trade them up for the High Power version. Brent will be in touch to let you know the details to do this.

Hi Ian; how much would the high-power version of the M80s be? Christmas is around the corner and one needs to start budgeting :-).

Hi Adrian,

It would depend on the age of your M80s. The best bet would be to call Brent and have him work it out for you.

The specs for each version will update when you select Standard or High Powered at the top of each product page. The High Powered versions come stock with the 5.25" die cast baskets.

I'm not seeing the advantage of the high powered version. Is it just to get more volume into a large room? Are there any other advantages other than that for a normal listening environment.?
