So it almost sounds as if the run of RC's is done. Damn, maybe I will pick up another pair!!!
I'm still keeping an eye open for Veritas crossovers and tweeters.
I'm thinking it would be a fun experiment to just swap in the Veritas xovers into the RC70s.
Will need to double check the impedance of all the drivers to make sure they match to the Veritas before hand, and take a look at the individual xover points of the drivers.

60" Panasonic Plasma ~ BenQ HT1075 / 92" fixed Dragonfly Screen ~Onkyo TX-NR3008 as my Pre/Pro
Earthquake Sound Cinenova Grande Amplifier ~ Crown X1000 ~ Oppo BDP-103
Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista Tube DAC ~ Monster Cable Signature Series HTPS7000
Energy Veritas 2.2i (mains) & Veritas 2.0c (center) ~ Energy RC-70 (side surrounds)
CAT Tiburons(rear surr) ~ Sub... custom 15" Diamond Audio Technology ~ Xbox One

Interesting concept changing the rc-70 tweeters for some i series. I dont know how that would work though work the cabinet and the cut openings. It appears that the veritas tweeter/midrange module was crossed over at ~550 hz, and the RC-70 crosses between the 5.5" midrange and woofers at 600hz. So you would need to replace both the RC-70 tweeter and 5.5" midrange with the one veritas module, so the opening in the RC-70 cabinet would be way too large.

If you were planning on using the veritas module with the 5.5" midrange and woofers of the RC-70's, there wouldnt be enough space above the 5.5" midrange for the module, unless you turned it sideways. Even then I think it would be way too tight.

Its an interesting concept, but I think it reality it would be quite difficult to do.

can anyone help recommend a pair of rear speakers for the following setup i already have in a dedicated 13x20 media room?

denon x2100w
energy rc-70 pair up front
energy rc-lcr center
axiom qs8 side surrounds
svs pb1000 sub

i was leaning toward getting a pair of rc-10's to wall mount at the rear of the room (about 5-6 feet behind the seating area). but the rc-10's are quite big to wall mount. would a simple pair of satellite speakers of some sort be adequate for the rears? any suggestions would be appreciated!! thank you.

I would swap the tweeters no problem. As far as the whole csm module(Veritas mid & tweet) it's far smaller than the 5.5" mid/tweet setup on the RC70. It would fit but obviously not without modifying the cabinet/baffle.
My goal all along was to find a damaged 2.3i/2.4i to build into a center channel. Have never liked the 2.0i center. It really should have used the dome mid as well.
One of these days I will find what I need to make something custom. For fun if nothing else.

What about another pair of QS8's if you're happy with them? Or the smaller QS4s if you want to save some cash.
