Epi M60

Amazing speakers, I dailed in my sub woofer and simply amazing sound out of these little speakers. Anyone know the specs. ? These are so heavy for such a small speaker.

I'm am so excited about these little speakers, they sound to good. I've got about 5 watts pouring through them. (Stand Back) a peak of 10 watts.

I am the original owner of a pair of Epicure M50s, same drivers and a slightly different enclosure. They are in my LR, my wife's primary listening system. She won't let those speakers out of the room.

You might want to think about surrounds, and recapping. I also put proper binding posts in, while I had them open. Caps that I used are Dayton polypropylene, bypassed with a .01uf film & foil Dayton, from Parts Express. Got those and the posts, all at the same time.

A lot of speaker in a little box. It's easy to understand why they sold so many.

I just can't see how they could improve. I really am shocked at the sound bear in mind I am using my sub woofer also but the mids and top end, well they just melt around you. My surrounds look great. I'll be looking for more EPI speakers for sure. The best $15 audio dollars I ever spent on speakers.

Trust us on this one.

A fews buck and a small amount of time, and you will believe. The sound quality dramatically improves with a re-cap on older EPIs.

Nice score! I love my 100s.

Great tweeters.

Kool beans, Ernie!

That sound like just the ticket for my keeper set of EPI 100s, after I redo the nasty vinyl cabs with some nice Santos Rosewood veneer!

Thumbs up Score !

I JUST picked up a pair of M-60's at the local GW for a measly 6 bucks for the pair.
The woofer surrounds are toast, but both woofs and tweets are good, passing a quick AA batery test for output. Are these really that good ? Wondedring how they wouild compare to my Dynaco A-10's?

Keep the vintage stuff alive !
