I went to BB to listen to the Pioneers and others and ended up just buying the Pioneers on the spot. They are very good for the money. I like them a lot. I was able to demo them alongside Energy CB5's and Polk tsi100's and for half the price of either, they certainly held their own. Not flat like the Polks and almost to the level of the twice as much Energys.
BB has a 30-day return policy so I will continue to see if any crazy deals come along. If not, I am happy with my choice. They are so good they would even work well in a 2.0 setup as well. With my Infinity TSS-SUB450, it is great for my needs and usage.
Thanks for the help.
