The only way you will find out is to get a pair of each, put them in appropriate boxes and listen.

I've got relatives that live on the west side of the Village. I might just have to hop in the car and drive down. Got any 10.2s up and running as well?

True but, I was hoping some one else has heard them before shelling out over $200.00 for these unheard of speakers. Jm
