After a lot of research, I think I've decided to give the Energy RC series a try for my home theater system. I am quite space restricted in my TV stand, so it's been a journey to find center channel/bookshelf speakers that will fit.
As of right now, I'm looking at getting RC Minis for the left/right front speakers, which will be placed around my TV--approximately 50" center-to-center. I'm wavering whether I should go with a RC Mini CC or another RC Mini (placed vertically) for my center channel. I know it's ideal to match identical speakers, but the RC Mini CC seems identical to the standard RC Mini--it just adds a second woofer, which I would think is a good thing.
So which would sound better? Does it matter? I'm building a HTPC and am trying to decide on its form factor, also, since everything will fit in my TV stand more of like a puzzle.
Also, in the future, I may move the 2 RC Minis to the back and add RC10s to the left/right front, at which point they would be on speaker stands. I'd love to start out that way, but toddlers learning to walk are putting a stop to that for now.
If I move to the RC10 in the future, should that sway me further to either the RC Mini as a center or a RC Mini CC?
And no, I can't fit a RC10 as a center unless I set it horizontal, which I know is a bad thing.
