I feel like this has surely been discussed but I've searched a good bit and come up empty handed. Both of these are on the table as my possible next build if I choose to go small, which I think my wife will insist upon. They will be used as mains in a pretty small living room. When we build our house I hope to move them to the rear, but that's a bit into the future. I don't doubt either's ability to get loud enough for me. I'm not as crazy as some of you in that area... yet. I currently have Paul's Amigas and they work rather well for music, but don't really cut the mustard for movies. The vocals are often too quiet and not as clear as I would like, at lest as I use them without a center channel.
From what I have been able to find the Minions have better low end, but I'll be crossing over to a sub so that's not a huge deal to me. Other than that what are the differences? I find the price difference to be pretty significant so I'm trying to decide if the Minions are really worth $55 more each. Thanks for any input.
