Actually only by memory (and we all know reliable that is
) they had the JBL's in the store and I have the 2031P's at home. I only listened to the Yamaha's and JBL's at the store . The max SPL mfr specification is the same btw.
Hard to say a shelf at Guitar center is a long way from a treated room my impression is the JBL's have a little more impact and clarity.
as did the even more expensive Yammies ofc both are powered also .The JBL's are Bi amped so I'm assuming no passive x overs .
IMO the Behringers are hard to beat in price range and better than most home speakers at least that I have heard for well over twice the money .
4 or five of those should make a lot of decent sound especially with some distributed bass ( 2 Subs ) I have 2 paired with 2 10" powered subs they are pretty good all in all they sound much better than the Pioneers or any tower speaker under a few hundred IMO. .
I didn't really look at the lie sheets that much the JBLs have a broader freq response according to the spec. I haven't seen any independent measurements good reviews though.Edited by tubetwister - 1/5/14 at 3:07am
