As far as driver area goes (which is a main factor in bass response), the 6in has about 28 sq in whereas 2 4in drivers will cover about 24 sq in.

Though you have multiple voice coils moving air, so that may very well account for any difference through the additional power they can handle.

Another thing to keep in mind is that tuning has a lot to do with low end response - your tannoys are probably tuned at around 50hz. Smaller drivers will have a more difficult time with frequencies below that no matter how the enclosure is tuned though - something to consider if sub-bass is something you're concerned about hearing.

though having never heard either system, i'm not sure how accurate I am...

(BTW, how much would you be selling the tannoys for? I'm in the area and might be interested.)
