7200.2 are remarkably controlled in the bass, especially with EBA on - in a room with known bass issues they’ve worked wonders for me.

Deeper, more defined bass, yet colder overall balance, would imply to me a slight relative recession in frequency response in the midbass. But I could be way off.

So hard to say with speakers as, above all other pieces of equipment, they are so very room dependant.

The rear firing bass drivers on the Kii's did not convince me when placed close to corner or rear wall.
I only had a limited demonstration and when they were moved 3 feet into the room they improved significantly.

Not sure of the boundary controls used in the dem as I had little knowledge of what was possible.
Make sure you do your homework before making a judgement on these. They could be a lot more capable than my first impression.

Still don't think they could match my 5200SE's though, which in my room are fantastic.
