5051A/F Two vs 7050B

If I don't care about the visual aspects of the subwoofer or ISS functionality, is there any reason why I should not go for the 7050B instead of the F Two (or 5051A)? I don't need RCA connectors. I notice that 7050B is 70W and the F Two is 150W, they are however both recommended for the same systems and seems to produce about the same sound pressure level. The 7050B is considerably cheaper than an F Two. Is there any reason to get the F Two with respects to sound quality or power?

I might want to flush mount the subwoofer at some point. Is the 7050B better suited for this? And is it at all possible with the F Two?

The inteded usage is a home audio/video installation with two 8030Bs and two 8020Cs.

The most noticeable differences are the visual outlook, ISS function, connectors and remote control. If those are not important for you, 7050B offers similar performance and is more suited for flush mount installation.
