    I was wondering if anyone has got to compare these two models. I currently own the v2 but have yet to make it to my local paradigm dealer to compare them. Im also trying to find out if the driver was the only change or if the crossover was changed as well. I emailed paradigm today and with any luck ill hear back.

    Also has anyone ever tried to get parts directly from paradigm? If there is a major sound difference it would be nice to be able to do some form of home upgrade if the cost isnt too bad.

    The baffles on the V3s are different, plastic instead of wood, but are more or less and "open" mesh design. Not a big deal, IMO. The tweeter plate is different but the sound is similar. I have a V3 370 with my V2 5s, and they blend perfectly. The V3 5s are now biampable as well.

    I think the x-over has changed, because the Minis, 5s, 7s and 11s sounded a bit clearer in the midrange to me.
