M3 vs M3 Turbo S
« on: 22 Oct 2019, 04:22 am »
I'm about to buy a used pair M3, but how do I tell if it's M3 Turbo S vs regular M3? The serial field only has numeric handwritten serial numbers while some of the online pictures i found online of M3 Turbo S have "___ Turbo S" in the serial field. The current owner said he was told by the dealer he got the speakers from told him they're indeed M3 Turbo S.

I don't recall my M3 Turbo S serial having any indicator of S status.

I think one visual way to tell is if both the positive and negative wires connecting the compression driver on the back are Duelund (both having black fabric insulator). I believe the non S versions used red and black vinyl insulated wire.

I'm not home to check but I want to say mine say Turbo S on the crossover plate. Mine have the red and black twisted wire.

Ask for the serial number and call spatial audio, they should be able to tell you.
