I received some M22 V3's from refurb store, but the speaker centers are black. I thought all V3's were all white? it does have a V3 sticker on the back and the new screens with magnets.

Just play Michael Jackson's "Black or White" song and enjoy them.....

Sorry. Uplifting maybe, but not helpful, I know.

I suspect what happened is that those speakers were manufactured/assembled right before the complete running change in the manufacturing from v2 to v3. So they will have some v3 parts (magnets bitches!) and some v2 parts like the black dust cap.

Or they were built for someone who ordered specifically with black caps, but then had a defect.

I bought V3's that showed as having black center's but they were all white when they arrived. Being anal as I am , I asked axiom to make it right so they matched my other speakers. FWIW, i could not tell any difference between them and if i remember correctly there was no physical difference other than color.
