Yup, they do!!! And the more we talk about it, the more I'm figuring their strategy out. It's a clever practice though, we practice it in our business, at a way lesser extent though... It's called "clustered pricing"

Even called Energy a year or so ago and they had no clue... But, other than the stickiness, I love my 7.1 cherry Veritas speakers.

I was giving my home theater some love this week - receiver died and time for something new... And thought I'd try one more time to search for a solution... Denatured alcohol really did the trick! I have 4 speakers with the rubber tops and rubber sides on the center... They are all now smooth and soft to the touch- and there's nothing that the dust will stick to! It took about 15 min a side with gentle rubbing with a soft cloth saturated in the alcohol, and a final wiped own and they are now smooth and not sticky at all.

So- thanks for posting this- these are absolutely great speakers, and they're now like new!

Edit: the tops of the speakers are now smooth black plastic, which looks GREAT. I think there was a rubberized coating on top of that originally, which, thanks to our LA smog, turned to gummy, stick goop. The denatured alcohol I used just removed that initial VERY THIN rubberized coating and took it down to the hard surface of the tops. The tops are still the 1/4" or so black plastic. If one wanted to, the tops could be sprayed with a rubberized coating again I suppose - they look/feel great as is at this point. Easier to dust as well! I'm not sure I want to risk it - LB

Just an update to this: Checking the specs on the Energy-speakers.com site, shows that the EAS-6C has a mounting depth of only 2.75 inches!... so they would be fine for mounting in walls also... actually shallower than the EAS-6W's 3.25 inches... even the EAS-8C has a depth of only 3.25 inches..... so wall mounting in a 2x4 (1.5 X 3.5) studded frame wall should be no problem I would think....
