i model usually (but not always apparently) has a standard one piece grill. Non i model has a 2 piece grill that looks the the woofer is protruding through the cloth. If you called Energy they should be able to decode the serial number to determine if it is the i model or not, but I seem to recall the serial number being on the same sticker that the model number is on. Only other thing I can think of is to remove the woofers and check the model numbers.

I noticed about the grill. But maybe if the seller just used the i grill for non i so that he can make a good profit. Seller told me that there is no sticker at the back of the speakers so there's no way i can confirmed if it is the i or non i. Where is the serial number located? And also how much the price range for those 2.4 and 2.4i now?

On my 2.3i speakers, the serial and model number are on a sticker on the bottom of the speaker - specifically on the back footpiece that the carpet spike would thread into. As for their value, I would say low end $600, high end $1250. Do you know about the woofer issues on the non-i models and how to check if they are frozen?

That strange why they put it under the speaker. I will put that in mind when i go. When you say high end its the 2.4i right? Nope, can you please give me a clue how to check those dead woofers?

Yes, high end would be 2.4i in excellent condition. That's just my opinion, I may be off a bit. To check the woofers, use your finger to gently press on the woofer cone. It should slide freely up back and forth on the phase plug (pointy thing in the middle). If it does not, the woofer is frozen.

Any Energy out there who have "upgraded" to another brand or DIY?

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the sound from all of my Energy speakers ;
two V2.2i
two V2.1i
two V2.0ci
two V2.0Ri
four V6.2
two V5.2C
two V-Mini
one Take 1 center
four Take 2

I enjoy the sound each setup has given the cost/size of each speaker design, and have had nothing but great experiencing with Energy (both pre and post Klipsch involvement) during warranty claims.

However, my current main theater setup is the V6.2's bi-amped from my Denon AVR-4308, V5.2C, and V2.0Ri's, with two DIY Marty Cubes to handle the lower end. I've found that the V2.2/1i's are just too "bright" for my taste in day-to-day listening/viewing. I'm now in search of more efficient speakers to obtain higher SPL with clear sound. I'm about to pull the trigger on three DIYSG 1099's and am almost certain Volt 10's (or the like) will follow for surround duties. Being the enthusiast I am, the Energy speakers will still be utilized in another room and frequently enjoyed but I'm looking for that "next step up" for my theater.

Have any of you gone a different route? Your thoughts and experiences?

Haven't been to this thread in quite a while but jeeeeeeezzzz.... those are excellent prices for those speakers!!!! I'm still rocking my RC-10's, 30's, 70's, and LCR. I don't think I'll ever get rid of these speakers, I just love them.

What I really was looking for was another pair of Omnimount 20.0 to wall mount my second set of RC-10's behind me for a set of rear heights. Sadly it looks as though these mounts are unavailable. In the space I'm in now I need them to tilt downward rather far towards my MLP and I don't see any mounts around to match my needs. Is there anything around comparable to those Omnimount 20.0's?

stands

is anyone using an all LCR stage? if so, what stands are you using for the L/R? almost all stands have pads that are way to small for the LCR base. tia...

Are you referring to the LCRs being oriented vertically or horizontally?

If vertical, the end of the LCR is 7.5" x 10.25". I personally use the Sanus BF24 stands which have a top plate thats 6.5" x 6.5" for my RC-10's whos base is 6.7" x 10.5" and they work great. I think they would work well for the LCR too as long as you make sure its centered on the stand. I use a small piece of the thin anti-slip pads meant for use under area rugs, and it works very well keeping the speaker from sliding on the stand, and protecting the bottom of the speaker.
