Both the 602s3 and 685 are rated +-3dBs at 50hz. Additionally each speaker has a 1" dome tweeter and 6.5" kevlar bass/mid driver.

The more I think about it though, the more I wonder if I should just get a set of 705s and a HTM7. Since the series is being discontinued they will be on sale most likely.
I have listened to the 7 series and will tell you, there's a good reason they are being discontinued. I would take any 6 series speaker over the more expensive 7 series. Simply put, they do not sound good.
