Reprinted from AudioGon Forum:
My 946s have a very detailed midrange and treble. I find my 946 Electras to sound neutral although some components and cables can make them sound bright and forward. I am using Threshold power and pre amps with my 946s and have no complaints and have heard various Electra models driven by amps such as Pass Labs, Krell, and Bel Canto and all sounded very good. The 946 Electras do have a lot of bass energy
I own a pair of 946 Electra's and I have heard the 937 Be's at a local dealer. The complete Electra line are ALL fabulous speakers. I like the 946 because it is a rather large size speaker and gives a large live type sound due to the cabinet size and the dual 10 inch woofers. Later on a local dealer got a set of the 937 Be's in and when I heard them I was expecting them to not be quite as strong in the bass department because they only have 8 inch woofers but I was very surprised that the bass energy was very close to my 946 Electras. The Be tweeter is truly amazing and is very highly rated as being possibly the world's best tweeter. As good as the 946 Electras are, the 937 Be's are still a little smoother sounding and a little better in imaging, transparency, detail, very close to Utopia level. Although they might give up a small bit of bass energy and slam to the 946's, their exceptional midrange and treble performance make up for it"
