Yeah, as long as you are sitting only 15 feet from the TV, it doesn't matter if your room is 1,000' x 1,000' when it comes to the speakers.

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).

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.

I'm sure there will be people who would like to complete their current SX systems.

There is always that...

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...
