it is confusing because hawg-wired doesn't advertise their speakers as being 'bridge mounted component speakers" and the external crossovers and separated elements make a huge difference in sound.
not to mention, potential water pooling issues
I have run coaxs, as well, and still used a set for the second pair up front to widen the sound stage
basically, HAT makes great stuff, I have had the Mirus and i57-2, HAT lacks in it's tweeter section, because they don't offer a pad, or reduction option, for their tweeters and many times you find yourself with a high end feedback, that by the time you perceive it, you ears are ringing
hawg-wired figured that out, before they shipped them to you.
so based on what you have said, I'd choose the ZX
if you are adventurous, a set of $30 pioneer TS-G1644R speakers will fit the inner fairing side walls and fill out the sound further
I'm a bit frustrated with the HAT for not have a 'real world' feel in the higher registers, too clean, would best describe it, but the HAT 5x7 speakers are also, bridge mounted components, the component part is what really matters, and they do pump
ZX speakers are a home run - the bass is just as good
