The differences you described above is what made be go with the 100's over the 300's. They sounded better and were $100 cheaper.
Now all you need is a better sub.
for the size room (960 cu.ft.) the q100'sare being used they are perfect! I think they would work great in rooms up to 2500 cu.ft.
the Q300 are in a 2500 cu.ft. room that opens up to 5000 cu.ft., and i believe the extra displacement of the Q300's definitely help expand the sound-stage.
while i think i will end up preferring the Q100's "slightly", the Q300 work best for my living the room.
One thing i love with the Q300's is when listening at loud volumes i don't get ear fatigue. At the same time i don't plan on pushing the q100's hard in that tiny room lol.
overall i love them both.
next step is second Outlaw Ultra x-12 for the living room sometime this year.
eventually i'll get a replacement sub for the PC room , short list: HSU VTF1-MK3, Rythmik L12, SB1000, RSL Speedwoofer 10s (music is priority, but extension is also important for gaming) imo the output these subs can deliver is way overkill, but i want the extension lol
side observation: the 6 1/2" Uni-Q driver in my Q650C has a very similar sound signature of the Q100.
so for those who can't make up their mind between the Q100 vs Q300 , i have the answer..........---> Q350's lol
