The $1600 Energy Veritas V-6.3 tower vs $1450 RBH MC-6CT tower?

I still think the RBH MC is better than the Energy Veritas.

The RBH Impression series would be better than Energy RC series.

Yeah, I don't it's fair to compare RBH MC series to Energy speakers. :D

Yeah, $1075 per speaker.

Looks like $475 (3 tweeters + XO) + $600 (4 mid) = $1075 per speaker.

It seems you don't need XO for the midrange upgrade, but you do need new XO for the tweeters.

I think in general, assuming the design and implementation is the same with 2 speakers, having multiple and larger midrange and woofers tends to improve efficiency and dynamics.

I will ask about the cost of the Reference Aluminum 6.5" midrange driver - the RBH 165-FPN Cast Aluminum Midrange driver.

Okay, the RBH 165-FPN Cast Al midrange driver is $150 each (MSRP).

That's right.
The ScanSpeak 9500 Tweeter upgrade is $125 each x 3 = $375.
The new Crossover for the ScanSpeak 9500 costs $100 per speaker.
So each speaker is $475.

Certainly one option.

1. Upgrade to Reference tweeters (ScanSpeak 9500)

2. Also upgrade to Beryllium midrange drivers

But since a pair of T1 has a total of 6 tweeters and 8 midrange...

I doubt there will be discounts on the SX when the SV comes out in about 6 months.

Looks like you have a great system.

Your system definitely ranks with any entry level system from Revel, KEF, B&W, Dynaudio, Focal, etc., that cost a lot more.

Really no need to upgrade...

The MC-6C bookshelf speaker has a FR of 60Hz-20kHz +/- 3dB, so the 150Hz XO seems kind of high. Apply Audyssey again (make sure totally quiet room). If it still sets XO to 150Hz, then just keep it...
