    The A7 cabinet I would use for kindling wood used in my fire place. Its just a bass reflex with a short front horn to project into a movie theater & has limited bandwith on the lower end. But some people like it for its dynamic slam in the mid band.

    One thing to consider here. Music is about the heart, not the mind. The real question is which sounds best to you.

    Think of speakers like you would women. There's no right on wrong, it's just which one did you fall in love with.

    for example, I have a friend who has a pair of late 80's Martin-Login's. When I go over to listen to music with him, I really don't care for the sound at first ( it takes about 30 minutes for me to get use to em), but I can appreciate his love of the music. and I'm sure he's not a fan of my JBL's. BUT, we both understand it's the joy of the music.

    I have a rather large HT setup downstairs, it's not the best, but it is thunderously loud. But 60% of the time I don't go down stairs, but instead stay upstairs and watch movies with a pair of dinged JBL S312's I got at best buy for half off ( yes, I know their commerical crap - but pretty good commerical crap )with a very underpowered Sony "all-in-one" player. I don't do single center speakers so I run them in stereo. Hey, it's not much, but I like it.

    So, bottom-line Angel is what sounds best to you. So, I would recommend hook'em up and just listen. Your heart will tell you which ones to keep. Because when the lights go down and the volumn goes up, it's truely a love affair with music that matters, and all the specs, imaging, soundstaging etc, etc doesn't matter.

    take care and good luck with your choice
