Hello All,

I was hoping someone could help me here.

I already have a Yamaha NS AP 9500 5.1 Speaker setup connected to a Yamaha Rx-V665 ( 90W per channel ). I was gifted a JBL Cinema 300 and I want to keep the better system !

The links to the items are :

JBL: http://www.jbl.com/estore/jbl/us/products/Cinema-300/CINEMA%20300_JBL_US
Yamaha Speakers: http://static.tigerdirect.com/pdf/01_om_ns-ap9500M_9600E.pdf
Yamaha Subwoofer : http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/av/english/sub/YST-SW030_e.pdf

The Yamaha speakers are old, like 8-9 Years
The JBL is new.

I was not quite sure which one which sound better. I have listed the specs below

Impedance on the Yamaha speakers are 6ohms and the JBL speakers are 8ohms

JBL vs Yamaha


Max Power : 100 W vs 120W
Sensitivity : 86dB vs 83 db
Crossover Freq : 3.7Khz vs 600Hz,6000Hz
Freq Range : (-6dB) 32Hz-20KHz vs 100 Hz-40KHz


Max Power : 100 W vs 120W
Sensitivity : 89dB vs 82 db
Crossover Freq : 3.7Khz vs 5000Hz
Freq Range : (-6dB) 32Hz-20KHz vs 110 Hz-40KHz


Max Power : 150 W vs 70W
Sensitivity : 89dB vs 82 db
Freq Range : 32hz -150Hz vs 28-200 Hz
Crossover Freq Range : 50Hz-200Hz vs 28 Hz-200 Hz

Thanks much !!

To the extent that someone could recommend either set based on numbers alone (the answer is probably "which sound better to you?"), I'd ask this question on the speakers board instead.
