Trying to decide if I want to upgrade M60's V3. I should have probably purchased the M80's in the first place! Now I have the amps to push the larger speakers worried about the 4ohm issue at the time. I would like to sell my m60's V3 which I purchased in the outlet store any ideas. Will it be worth my effort to go to the M80's or m100's big price increase over the m80's? Trying to get the most for dollar value. Thanks Greg

What is it about the 60's you are hoping to improve upon?

If you do upgrade, do it soon! Prices go up in March, to reflect increased costs of the V4 parts.

Depends alot on what you're goals are, really.

Greg, you've had the M60s less than a year and said you were happy when you got them. What kind of sub are you running? What's your receiver/amp and how are your crossover's and room correction set? Why upgrade so soon? Just trying to help.

I sat and listened to my V2 60's last night. Happy as a clam.

Seen the rather large price increase on the M80's Bill and started to think,I should not think. Running an Onkyo818 with a emotiva XPA5 gen2 and a XPA2 gen2 on the M60's. I have an EP500 sub maybe another sub or some front high speakers would be a better option. Amazing what a nights sleep can do.

So many things to consider here. As much as i also like the idea of hearing and trying out the M100s, i know that our present room is just too small for that size a speaker.
It is hard enough to get a proper stereo image because of spacing so getting something bigger doesn't make any sense, for that room.

As previously mentioned by others, what are you trying to improve or what is your goal with the idea of going for M80s or 100s (and i am purposely NOT using the term "upgrade" here).

I think you also have a VP160 and QS8s right? I'm so jealous of your setup now including the 818 with Audyssey MultEQ XT32. Your XPAs should drive your speakers as loud as you could want. Perhaps another high end sub would be a good idea???

Yes I have a 160 and Qs8's. I will go with front highs next it has been suggested the QS4's or QS8's. The system sounds great. I finished my audio rack so I guess I am just board. For now everyone has convinced me to stay with the M60's the room is under 2,000 cubic feet.
