Before the MB42X, there was a popular crossover mod for the older MB42 speakers, making them sound amazing for the price. These are essentially MB42s with the improved crossover built-in (which is a good thing). Other upgrades are cosmetic, including a tweaked cabinet shape, graphite finish, and magnetic grills.
