Looking for some advice on which set up would yield the best SQ for a active set . Its the mighty(older) combo of the pioneer DEX-P9/DEQ-P9 vs. A pioneer DEH-8300UB + the JBL MS-8.

FYI, I have a powerbass ASA-1100.5x amp. My goal is to run a front stage setup plus sub only. Thanks guys(and girls)!
