the model 5 and 7's have much the same sound quality ( the monos, of course, have bigger balls) . moreover, a 5 is virtually the same size as 1 model 7. if you have the room and a sufficient number of beefy friends to help position them, i'd go for the 7's. i would also look for a pair of model 1's to run bridged. they are more current than either the 5 or 7 and, IMO, are more musical. FWIW, i've owned several jrdg amps and currently use an 8ti to power avalon eidolons (also nominal 4 ohm speakers-the 8 is rated at 400 w/side into this load).
