Very good balance
I debated where the request would be a better speaker or the quest or even the quest z. It all boils down to acoustics. Only your room and it's items can determine the sound properly. I like the quest for a larger room. My room was 13 by 23 feet. They perform almost flawlessly. Still a slight lack in mid base but much much better than the sequel II which kind of squeal at you around the 2.5 kHz range. Thus overshadowing critical details in the music.
