Has anyone heard the Meadowlark American E?

Has anyone heard this speaker? It was described to me as having a richer bass than the other Meadowlarks--almost Vandersteen-like. Does anyone have first hand data?
To me they sound just like the other cheaper Meadowlarks. Not a bit like the rich sounds of any Vandersteen. Also, if you remove the ugly looking grill, the speakers are unfinished. They do sound fine, but I passed on them.
