I did read a review by a customer over on Richer Sounds Website that has both 11 and 12 that stated he can hear a difference between the two speakers. So, maybe everything is the same internally except for the BMR?

(in Dutch, but if you run it thru Google Translate and look for "4mm" you'll get the idea.)

Also the main driver looks exactly the same in Minx21 vs Minx22. Maybe the woofer got an update?

On the CA FB page a CA-guy responded to me with this: "The Minx 22 is almost identical internally to the 21 but has new styling"
I thought that increase in excursion sounded familiar.

Upon comparing the old photo for the Minx Min 11/21 to the updated drivers with the one in the recent brochure on the updated line, the drivers all look the same including the woofer that is in both 21/22. CA does claim they're using an updated (4th Generation) BMR taken from the Aeromax speaker line. The added woofer between both 21/22 has probably not been changed nor does CA claim it has.

It's too bad CA does not let their customers update the BMR in their previous models for a fee. Instead, they just want you to keep purchasing new models every couple of years which seems such a waste. You can always sell your previous models and update to newer models but here in North America, it's tough to get even half what you originally paid for them.

btw, what was wrong with the old external styling?

The only difference I can tell is the front grille is changed. That may account for the difference in dispersion, etc.

The question still is... what did change besides the front grille... if it's really hearable improved I'd like to exchange my center 21 for a 22, as I consider my center of huge importance, for the rears I'm fine with the 21's. But it's not something I'd like to do every year over and over again.

Okay! I just received word that CA is definitely using that 4th Gen BMR used in the Aeromax line for the new Min models. The proof will be in the listening. I may acquire a pair of Min 12 to test out when they are finally made available.
