Comparing Speakers - Klipsch KHO-7 vs. Yamaha NS-AW390

I am trying to set up a pair of outdoor speakers on the deck. I am looking at two specific models. Any advise on which would sound better?

Klipsch KHO-7
8 Ohms
75W Continuous / 150W Max

vs.

Yamaha NS-AW390
6 Ohms
40W Nominal / 130W Max

I am using the Sonos Connect:Amp to power the speakers:
At 8 Ohms, it outputs 55W/channel.
At 6 Ohms, it outputs 82.5W/channel.

I'm aware that wattage is not a direct indicator of audio quality. So, any input from someone who might actually have these speakers is greatly appreciated.

If you are willing to go $199/pair, then go for these instead:

Offset tweeter allows them to be placed either horizontally or vertically with equal efficacy.

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.

Thanks for the recommendation. Those look like a nice pair. $199 is not too much... that's what the Klipsch were going for. I wish I could get them local somewhere here in New York, though. I have a party here at the house this Saturday, so everything needs to be in place before then. Which basically somewhat limits me to Best Buy or Amazon.
