    Hi. I 'm new to the DIY home theater area and was wondering what the difference is between a Vifa speaker and a Scan Speak speaker.

    Toyota vs Lexus. Both excellent, Scans a little nicer and more expensive.

    Also, Scanspeaks are more refined, and require more attention to the crossover design to wring out the most out of them. The Vifas are more forgiving, and don't require as much in the crossover design to get good performance out of them.

    Danish Tech also makes Peerless drivers if I remember correctly. Where does Peerless stand in all of this? Middle of the road or is it the budget line? Thanks

    There are 2 Peerless lines. Those made in East India are lower end components
