    Whispers of a Magico M9 Coming Soon?

    Magico M9 - from what I read elsewhere, almost 9 feet tall and app 1000 lbs. per speaker. Each speaker is divided into two sections, split in two sections for shipping.

    Teaser photo. Any guesses on it's configuration?

    Interesting. Where did you read this?

    That looks like an M6 to me in the camera. No?

    My guess is it is an M3 stacked on top of an M6.

    Re: Whispers of a Magico M9 Coming Soon?

    This same photo was posted on another forum back in Dec 2019, with various speculation. Including Peter M. reportedly having said to someone it's an M9. Who knows about "rumors" that anyone can post.

    If you just Google image search that image, you can find that forum post. I will not link it here.

    Is Magico allowed to come out with an M9 before BMW?

    A 1000 lb speaker is hard to believe with the recent direction the cabinet technology seems to be taking with M2/M6. That would make it heavier than Q7Mk2. Just not practical or sensible to my mind.

    I agree, doesn't make sense. With the M2 at 165 lbs, Magico seemed to be going lighter.

    Guess we will see in 2021 when this speaker - the M9 - will allegedly be released.

    I think one of the reasons the Magico M9’s will be so big and heavy is because you will not need to purchase QSubs for them. Think Von Schweikert Ultra 11’s for example. Built in 15 inch powered subwoofers.

    Magico doing a speaker with built-in subwoofer? I find that difficult to believe. But it would explain the weight.

    I might be wrong, but I donít think M9 is happening.
