No one can, or should tell you which one to choose!
I have both def tech speakers and currently use the sm450s with a Martin Logan dynamo sub. Mostly for music, but they are hooked up fir tv/ movie viewing as well.
A very balanced speaker. Hits low surprisingly well (maybe not as well as def tech claims), and is solid in the midrange and high freq! Gets loud and is pretty dynamic!
Directly compared these to the Polk m40s and pioneer bookshelves and felt these were by far the best of the three!
