While I am not an authority on this, you really should call Vandersteen to verify, the entire model 2 series is NOT upgradable. I had 2Ci's for about ten years and never came across any upgrade information. The Vandersteen website says nothing about it either. I aksed Richard Vandersteen about this a few years ago and I beleive his reasoning was economics, a $1300 speaker can't have that built into it, whereas the $2500 model 3 could (of course the 3A Sig is now $3500!).
They have to be 2Ce's. I know my 2Ce's are even too old. There was a cut off in the serial numbers of 2Ce's for the upgrade. It used to list the info on their web site. It is gone so I assume that they don't do the update now. You will have to make a call to your dealer to find out. I wouldn't call the factory!
Hi, It would be cheaper to buy a used pair of model 3's than to pay for a upgrade (if available)for the model 2's. I picked up a pair on ebay for less than $750(less shiping) and they look and sound like new. I still have my model 2's and I can definatly tell the difference between them. Then you can always upgrade the model 3's if you want. I've even seen model 3 sigs on ebay & a-gon for decent prices.
