I will ask about the cost of the Reference Aluminum 6.5" midrange driver - the RBH 165-FPN Cast Aluminum Midrange driver.

Okay, the RBH 165-FPN Cast Al midrange driver is $150 each (MSRP).

Ouch. $1,075 per speaker + the crossover x 3, 4 mid bass and 3 tweeters per speaker. Am I reading that right?

That will make an expensive update to the speakers. I may need to do them one at a time.

Yeah, $1075 per speaker.

Looks like $475 (3 tweeters + XO) + $600 (4 mid) = $1075 per speaker.

It seems you don't need XO for the midrange upgrade, but you do need new XO for the tweeters.

So I finally got around to hooking up my Energy 5.1 system in the basement. Fronts are 2 x RC-30, Center is RC-LCR, and rears are RC-Minis. After setting everything up, I am underwhelmed by the Energy speakers. I used to think they sounded awesome, but these RBH MC-6C bookshelves destroy them.

They have to be the best sounding speaker I have heard.

Yeah, I don't it's fair to compare RBH MC series to Energy speakers.

Even the RBH Impression series would be better than Energy.

The $1600 Energy Veritas V-6.3 tower vs $1450 RBH MC-6CT tower?

I still think the RBH MC is better than the Energy Veritas.

The RBH Impression series would be better than Energy RC series.

Thinking about replacing the Energy setup with 4xMC-4C for front and surrounds and 1x MC-414C for a center. Will the sound be improved? This is powered by a Denon 2313CI and a HSU VTF-1 sub.

That's always a tricky question to answer b/c this hobby is all about personal preferences.

I feel it may be an improvement, but there is absolutely no guarantee. Even if there were an improvement, the magnitude is equivocal.
