Trident HG3 or Focal SM9’s?

Let me preface by saying, I’m not a monitor expert. My monitors crapped out, and I’m wanting to upgrade. I’m leaning towards Trident HG3, or Focal SM9s, based on reviews. I know a lot of guys have experience with both, I’d love to hear some thoughts on either. Or, you may push me in another direction. Look forward to hearing from experts.

I have had both, and ignoring the fact that the Tridents came with their tweeter wired in reverse, and that they developed crackling on rotating the pods, from a purely sound perspective, the Focals are in an entirely different category IMO.

Selling the Tridents and getting the SM9s was the best thing I have done for my studio.
