Considering these are both in the same class I would audition both at Best Buy if possible. BB has the TSi200 which is equivalent to the Monitor 50s (just cosmetic upgrades). The Pioneers are rated 6 ohms so keep that in mind since the Polks are more efficient and will play louder at the same volume setting.
