Probably not but easy enough to just try it and see if you are happy with the sound.

When you recalibrate your receiver with the new speakers Audyssey will set levels and delays so no speaker will be louder than any other. And the receiver allows different crossovers for different speakers so the lesser bass capability of the Takes will be accounted for.

Bottom line -- try it for yourself before spending more money.

Thanks for the answer.

Room is about 5000-5500 cubic feet. I'm about 80/20 movies and regular tv to music. I listen to music in two channel stereo w the subs working.

Taking into account room size and my two subs, would this be a significant upgrade my my rc-10s? The 10s would get sold or saved for another room down the road, just too big for surrounds (waf).

Money really isn't an issue, but i told my wife a while ago I was done after she let me get my second sub. So....you can kind of see what I am looking at here.
I'm confused -- you can use CB-10's for surrounds but the RC-10's are too big? They are basically the same size.

Or is that a type and you meant CR-10's?

I couldn't bring myself to take the RC-70 speakers back so I decided to keep them.

Just for the picture, I've got one RC-10 on a 28" Pangea metal speaker stand on the left, the RC-LCR in the middle, and the RC-70 on the right.

I have 2 different receivers, one is a vintage Technics SA-500 and the other is a Harman Kardon AVR 340. The funny thing is, both receivers put out the Dane power (in real watts). The Technics puts out 55 x 2 @ 8 ohms and the HK puts out 55 x 3 (or 5, or 7).

I'm debating if I should pick up a newer AVR that has HDMI inputs & outputs.

I like the sound through the Technics but I'm wondering which modern day manufacturer would be the equivalent of the Technics.

Any suggestions as to what pairs well with the Energy RC series?

How would I know if I blew the crossover in my speakers? I have a pair of RC-30 speakers and had an issue with my receiver where it randomly played a loud sound (high in pitch). My tweeters and woofer seem ok, but I wanted to know the signs of a blown crossover.

Family Room Setup: RBH MC-6C Fronts, RBH MC-414C Center, RBH MC-6C Surrounds, RBH TS-10AP Subwoofer, Denon X3000
