According to the pricing, the BRX should be "better" in some way. Seems unlikely though given that the 3+ seems to use a lot of the same technology but has the powered subwoofer etc to play lower.
Am I missing something?
Anyone compared the 2?
Thanks!

Hi, Peter

The BRX's are $1,598/pair, the Triton 3+'s are $2,798/pair. Seems about right. As you say, the 3+'s have a powered bass driver, and similar technologies, though the BRX's have the Ref level HVFR tweeters.

Does get a tad confusing comparing cost/speaker vs. cost/pair. I haven't heard either so can't help there.
