Pioneer bs22 has the smallest driver (4 inch woofers) and aren't very sensitive, so you need to make sure your avr has decent power!
The infinity p163 has the biggest driver (6.5) and will likely hit the lowest. Also pretty sensitive...however, some say the speaker pulls some at 4 ohm, which means it can strain an underpowered AVR!
The Polk m30 has 5.25 inch drivers and decent sensitivity. Some say a little bright...
I have heard all three and own the polks (m40)...but if I could do it again, I would pick the p163s!
