All BS.
Room setup is going to matter most of all but the midrange carries so much of all these speakers (which is great! -- closest to creating a single driver system) which is amped the same and the same driver.

Biggest thing is if you can position the speaker in the right position for the room. I have 100ASL (triple) but I considered the 150ASL but couldn't get the boundary conditions right with the cabinet size. The 150ASL are much larger in physical size. The price difference (as a percentage) is negligible at this level. For another space I recommended and had bought 110ASL due to the room dimensions and console position; wouldn't have been able to get the 100ASL dimensions in the right place for that room.
