There's a difference in cabinet density, finish and I believe they upgraded the mid and tweeter. Not sure about the bass driver.
In my opinion the most noticable difference in sound is a top end "refinement" in the v3's. I think it makes it a worthy improvement over the v2's. The room they're in should play a part in determining what would be the best for you. An absorbtive or "dead" room might benefit from the forwardness of the v2's whereas a reflective or "lively" room might benefit from the v3's refinement and you can flip a coin for a neutral room. There's nothing "wrong" with either they're both exceptional for the money.
