Yes, these are both bargain basement quality cabinets (happy to be told I'm wrong) They're both made of inexpensive materials as far as construction goes, and I'm willing to live with that. MDF will be fine as long as I don't get it wet or drop it. Power handling doesn't have to exceed 400 watts. I like the tweeter attenuation they both offer. I will use a pair of the winner in a vertical stack (parallel) with my TCE BQ500 (4ohm min) Thanks for your input! P.S. I'm trying to save on shipping and would like a warranty, so I'm looking to stick with new. I know a million people are going to want to just tell me to search for a used Avatar. Please help me choose between THESE TWO.
