Differences between 7060B and 7070A Subwoofers

Trying to choose between these to use with a stereo pair of 1031As. I know that the 7070A subwoofer is the right match if I want to listen at high volumes, but if I don't, is there any difference between these two subs apart from the SPL attainable? At low level, will they sound roughly the same?

At low levels the difference is quite small. Of course it depends what do you mean by 'low level'. :)

But of course the bigger and more capable subwoofer will always sound better at low levels too. The more headroom your system has, the lower the distortion, compression etc. will be. You may notice it if you are used to listening high quality systems and subwoofers but most people wouldn't hear the difference, especially at low levels.
