I prefer Pioneer also - And, they do not have a boosted treble, to cover up
an overall dark midrange, like some budget speakers. And, I have tested
them at home, and they do have some bass - and not boosted, to give a
somewhat boomy, mushy type sound.
Also I do not consider the phase 1 Pioneer speakers, in the same league
as the Phase 2 Pioneers.
