I currently own 1037BE, and I'm very happy with them. This is my fourth speakers with metal dome speakers (strictly speaking BE tweeter is inverted dome), and the only one that does NOT exhibit harsh metallic zing from the tweeter. It's as if the tweeter has disappeared. Very impressively done. I'd say this speaker is for someone who doesn't like metal dome tweeter, but wants fast, airy, and accurate treble. Plus they are very easy to set up in my room, and easy to make them disappear. I used to own Nautilus 804, which I like the midrange and ease of set up. I had problem with front firing port in my room and room hump that I couldn't get rid of. When I was upgrading from 804 I briefly considered 802D with down firing port, but then decided to try Focal, and I'm happy with my choice.
