Has anyone ever compared both of these speakers? If not a direct comparison maybe heard both? I read a post on another forum where a member thout the SongTowers and the Emotiva 6.3s sounded "very similar, especially when crossing to a musical sub at around 70 to 80 Hz". I haven't heard the 6.3s but I find it hard to believe they sound "similar" to the STs. My reasoning is if the 6.3s did sound "similar" then why are they not talked about more in this price range. I'm not slamming the 6.3s as I'm sure they are a great speaker. I'm just curious as to if they really sound as good as the STs at a much lower cost.

Maybe all he was listening to was the sub. smile.gif

Unless he was a somewhat experienced listener, switching between speakers, level matching with sub, and then level matching for comparison, would have taken considerable time...and we know how bad audio memory is.

All very good points smile.gif. I just do not think these two speakers sound similar. But that is just a hunch as I've never heard the 6.3s. I tried to find some professional reviews and some specs on the 6.3s with no success. The 6.3s were discontinued by Emotiva and there is no information on them on the Emotiva site. Which makes me think that if they did sound as good as the STs why discontinue them.
