Very unlikely, because of the lesser directivity behavior. The smoother the directivity of a speaker the better you can EQ it.
I haven't seen anything about the directivity of any of the 700 series. What's "lesser" about it?

For example.


Figure 7. Not so pretty. To say the least.

Lesser: The KEF has a very smooth directivity curve, the BW not, therefore you can EQ the KEF better (Or any other speaker with smooth directivity). If you EQ ie changing the on axis anachoic FR of a speaker with less smooth directivity you end up making it worse, in simple words. See detail explanation in eg Floyd Toole, Sound Reproduction)
