I've been a part of 4 blind GTG's (3 speaker blind meets and 1 subwoofer blind meet) and the only constant is people get humbled.

I have a feeling that if a blind test was done again, but the owners didn't hear them beforehand and it's located at a different person's house it'll be hard to guess... (well, maybe between dome tweeters / compression driver type designs may have much more differences, but if the designs are similar like the other 3 there, then it might be harder)....
The reason? If it's a new environment, and the environment changes the sound so much that it's not even recognizable,...
However, if one were to have them all at their own home, and have listened to each beforehand, and then did it again blind, i believe it's easily doable (for the experts, might still not be easy for the casual observer)...
