I'm in the market for front speakers and decided to go with towers. My budget is about $450 or less. I've done some searching and basically narrowed it down to these two contenders, based on what I've read so far: JBL N38II and Home Theater Direct Level 3 towers. Even though I doubt it (but it doesn't hurt to ask), has anybody been able to compare these two set of speakers? The specs seem about the same although price favors the JBLs. Any comments or suggestions (even on other models) will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
