I did an A/B comparison of my Polk M40s and the EMP5Tis that I own when they first arrived, in a 2.0 set up. The Polks seem to produce more bass (no sure at my age that I can hear 40 hz or lower)..but it wasn't a very clear bass. Seemed muddy...
The EMPs seemed to put out less at the low end, but what they did produce was clear and detailed! Again, no measurements, so just my impressions!
