On paper, they are very similar. If I had the chance, I would run them side by side with the same PA.

I doubt you have that option, so pics would be helpful.

As a rule, I avoid plastic hardware at all costs.

I also tend to buy things like PA gear used. There are many people that will go to the music store or shop online, wind up not wanting or needing the gear, and some great deals can be had, if you know what yo are looking for.

Speakers A and B both have higher Wattage handling, which you may want to consider if you want to expand to a more powerful head later. Other than that, I'd just plug them in your PA head and see what you like the best.

The only specs that tell one anything about a speaker are the size, the weight, and the price (will it fit, can I carry it alone, can I afford it).  One just has to listen.

With exceedingly rare exception, anything with Piezos should be avoided. 

Find some nice clean used Yamaha SM15IV for $200 each.  You'll be much better off.  (Not that 15s are inherently better, it's just that this particular model is well known as a good performer that keeps working year after year.)
