Default Seas U18RNX/P Vs Peerless 830883

For consideration as a future upgrade to my Lambda's. Wondering about the sound quality from these 2 drivers. Which would you choose?

Replaces:
Dynaudio 17W75

Intended Use:
Open Baffle Mid
300-2500hz
Blend with SB Acoustics SB29 (which may eventually get upgraded to a BG NEO3 or some other better tweeter)

Thanks

The Seas U18RNX/P has a strong surround resonance at 700 Hz, causing a dip in the frequency response and high distortions (3% F2). The Peerless Exclusive 830883 is flawless and the better choice.

Default Wow strong opposing opinions

Strong cases each way. Hmmm. OK The current driver i m using is PP. And the Seas is PP (but a whole new type). The Peerless is nomex (which I am told is a compressed treated paper. Some people have come out against PP but the guys at Madisound said don't think of it as PP from the 1980's.
