You can measure the loudness with a SPL meter (like a $50 Galaxy Digital SPL meter).

It makes a difference ONLY if your speakers REQUIRE it. Otherwise, no it doesn't make a big difference.

I think as long as the speakers are assembled and tested in the USA, measure great and sound great, I'm okay with it. And as long as I don't actually have to pay the full $10K (like maybe $5K or...

I haven't read through everything. So the speaker parts are made in China, but assembled in the USA?

I guess their definition of "assembled" is the same as "made"?

It is true that surround speakers are not as important as the main front speakers for movies. Thus, you don't need to spend as much money for surround speakers.

But I would recommend that you do...

You can hear music and bass/subs just fine outdoors if...

The RBH SX-T2N/R (dual 10" woofers) has an MSRP of $12K/Pair, but street prices are a lot lower than $10K.

Another one I recommend is the RBH SX-8300/R, which has an MSRP of $5900/pair, but street...

I would definitely just use the 5CH for all 5 speakers and totally forget about passive bi-amp since it is a total waste of time.

Best Buy & Amazon were both selling the Denon 4520 for $1K a few months ago.

I would call Electronics Expo or one of the other authorized dealers and see if they would price match the $1K.

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, $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).
