One thing for sure, the Monitor 70 will win in the bass out-put. Other than that, my preference
is the Pioneer. Good subs can fill in the lower end. For me, Polk from the RTi series on down,

bass that tends to be lacking in control with a boomy/mushy character, gives me ear fatigue.
It all comes down to you, and what floats your boat - the choice is yours.
