    I listened to both, the JL's were really low on the midbass, I was quite disappointed with them. The highs weren't bad though.

    I vote Boston, but everyone's ears are different.

    I would run boston, i've never heard a set of JL's that knocked me off my feet. I would probibly get a 6.5 set and build adapters.
