The best information you can get prior to purchasing anything is listening. That's my advice along with bringing along your amp to see how it might integrate with this speaker. It is the only way you can get a semblence of what to expect. There are no shortcut opinions that will necessarily guide you to reaching a destination satisfying to you. Let listening guide you. Cheap advice? Maybe, but in my experience, the only road that is consistent. Trust yourself and use advice from others as a tool and not a bottom line basis for a decision. Your query suggests you might value the opinion of others over your own ears. Trust your own ears and listen for yourself, nobody in this hobby is an expert, trust me on that if nothing else!
