Probably at a certain distance that's correct. But up close, the front porting sounds/feels deeper. For me, that was a priority.
Plus, and this wasn't part of my original point, the 102p is smaller than the 102hf. I don't think they make the 102hr anymore, but that would be the size equivalent, and that's the one I did side by side comparisons with when I was shopping.
