    Better speaker: 4425 or 4412

    Hello,
    I have a set 4425's and a set 4412's. Which type of speaker is considered the better speaker of the two?
    I know such thing does not exist, but never the less, if you have to say something, which one?
    Thanks in advance!

    That kind of depends on what you're after. If it's accuracy and extended highs and smoothness of response your after, that would be the 4412.

    If you want higher SPL, dynamic transient attack that a compression driver based mid/hi can give you, then the 4425.

    I would probably choose the 4425 for a home theater setup....4412 for music playback and critical studio monitoring

    4412 is more "clinical," to the point of sounding "dry" to some. Impeccably accurate critical listening.

    A major feature of 4425 is the "ambience" of the biradial horn interacting with the listening space.
