Hey Jon, quick question, I saw you discontinued the A3 towers and was curious have you considered producing the A3 in the A2 cabinet using the same 2.5 way crossover? Not sure how different it would...

Yeah the Chanes are definitely more neutral, I don't know if I'd call the 220's neutral since it has a pretty well defined bump in the midrange followed by a drop after 1k Hz but they're definitely...

They are warm with a full midrange, if you check out the sound and vision review they actually have a rise in the midrange up until about 1k Hz and then drop off a bit but they sound good to me. A...

Thanks Dennis that's a great response. And I agree about not using a sub with the Phil 3's, I'd probably only use a sub with the other models.
