Now I have been reading for about 4 hours...time to stop...but the Phil 3's and the Selah have me a tad confused.
Seems that Phil pretty much HT3 but are uglier? From reading it seems Phil ignores what a speaker looks like and just goes for sound ...and ease of construction of his cabinets. That lowers his price allot compared to the ST etc? At least that is what I get out of it...
There are people who like the looks of it, so this is going to be personal. The phil arent any easier to built, not sure where you get that from.
I have heard no real response on the Selah compared to the SS monitor. I doubt given cost / build quality it will be apples to applies but since the componets are the same ..and we are talking moniotrs...I should be able to get 90%+ the same sound as the SS monitors for much less?
Again...just correct me if I go off path. With the ST I should go for the Ribbon upgrade right?
The compnents are not the same, nothing between the selah tempesta and SS7 are identical except the brands employed on the midrange driver and tweeter.
You will likely not hear the two since there isnt alot of people who onws both. Although both are three way, the desing are a slight different, different xover points. The tempesta employ scanspeak best7 inch drive which is more appropriate for it applicatonEdited by RicardoJoa - 2/10/13 at 12:22pm
