Default Sony MEX-M100 - which speakers?

So this newer Sony has built in amp - I know not as powerful as adding a separate amp but wanted to get some thoughts on which JL speakers would pair up better. Specs:

The MEX-M100BT has a built-in Class-D amplifier that outputs a CEA-2006 compliant max of 100W x 4, or 40W RMS x 4 channels.

JL MX770 or JL M770

The M770 is a slightly better sounding speaker even with moderate power. With 4 X 40 RMS watts there will not be a real difference in output. The M770 would be a noticeable upgrade if you had 4 X 100 RMS watts.

As David said, with 40Wx4 RMS, you aren't going to notice any difference between the MX770 and the M770. I'm assuming you aren't planning to put an amp in and that is why you are looking at the MEX-100BT, so I would save the money and go with the MX770's.
