Pioneer Vs. Infinity

I'm looking at speakers for the rear of my XJ. I think I have narrowed it down to either the Pioneer Premier TS-E1395 or the Infinity reference 5022i. What do you guys think are the best out of the two.
Thanks in advance

I have both but not your models, Pioneer in back hatch, Infinity in front doors, sony subs in between. The guy at Best Buy said the Infinitys are clearer and to put them up front. They cost more so I direct most of my sound to the back with the Pioneers, which sound good too. I like them both equally.
