Can you compare sound qualify of an active speaker to a passive, same brand?

    Say I can't find a demo show room of a pair of Focal Trio 11 Be.

    Say the dealer only have Focal Chorus, Aria, and Kanta, Sopra, and Utopia Mastro

    can I pick one from the above and get the closest comparison to Trio 11 Be? If not, is there a reasonable close model that I can pick for comparison?
