http://www.energy-speakers.com/support/policies/warranty/ is the best place to start, assuming all your connections are snug.

As long as you purchased from an authorized dealer and it looks like you did, then you have a 5 year warranty. That info should also be in the instruction manual I believe.

A few pics of the V2.3i in the mix. Bad camera settings in the basement

Looks like you could easily squeeze in about 3 more pairs of tower speakers in there. Get cracking!! biggrin.gif

I'm a bit surprised that they are shorter than the RC-70 and V-6.2, I never checked the specs but just assumed the 2nd gen Veritas would be larger.

Here is a better pic of their finish, still looks glossy

They measure 39 1/2 inches to the top of the rubber dome, same measurements as the rc-70's they just look a bit shorter due to the rounded dome. I have the v6.2's on the rubber pads
but they are actually a little taller even without the rubber base pads. I pulled out my HPM-100's out of the mix, I like this look better, hhhhmm your right could probally fit one or 2 more in there:eek:
post #47557 of 51438
I was looking at the height measurments for the rc-70's on a energy brochure, they list those as 39 7/8 with the rubber foot peg & the v2.3 as 40 3/4 but the pics next to the measurements show the v2.3 on the spikes. Its hard to get a good measurement on those since it has that rounded dome since the dome has a hump thats higher than the front lip. The rc-70's do measure 39 7/8 if you add the feet to the base.

Not that it makes a big difference but you got me thinking about the heights of the V2.3. I just put a level on the highest point of the rounded dome on the v2.3 and ran the level on top of the rc-70. The 70 is shorter. The v2.3 is 40 inches withput the spikes.

I bought a pair of stands for the v2.2 stands said 22 inches. Found out its 22 inches if you use the carpet spikes.

/One of the primary goals behind the re-design of the Veritas was to make them smaller. This made them easier to place and cheaper to make/ship and therefore easier to sell. They sacrificed a bit on cabinet volume and internal bracing/soundwave modification, but I'm sure they saw increased sales and I'm glad they went that way with them. Obviously the research paid off since they seemed to have stuck with the same dimensions and speaker array. Also these were developed with the thought that people were starting to use subs to fill in the low end. I think they've done a great job with the brand...right up to using the Veritas name to sell a Klipsch product. Let's hope they take one more logical step forward instead of the long list of blunders that they've produced lately.

Baron2 the shape of your rooms favor the acoustic.
post #47560 of 51438
Losservatore, the upstairs living room has the same shape. Its kind of an odd shape but it does work well with making the sweet spot easy to find
and having the look like the speakers are flush to the wall.

someone had mentioned that there are going to be 3 new towers coming out soon, has anyone seen them?

I haven't, but to be honest my excitement level is rather low after seeing the practically powerless "Power" subs Energy just put out.

baron2 is the perfect shape for controlling bass, it help controlling the overemphasize bass that is created by corners.

Thanks for the info on that. What is your take on ceiling height?

Baron2,

So how much better does the V2.3 sound vs your V6.2 and RC-70. Is it clearly a step above both speakers?
post #47568 of 51438
Ah, cool batpig. Curious to see what you think of the difference between that and your 2310. XT32 and more power to boot I assume. Wonder if you will notice the difference in power. How many speakers do you plan on using with that avr?

Good question, Its like taking all the good qualities of each of those speakers and putting them into 1 speaker.

Or another way to put it would be tamming some of the things I didnt like in each of those and making 1 speaker
that is well rounded. Hope that makes sence, though I will say this matched up the the Pioneer S-25 it sounded
good but a little thin. Now I have read from a number of sources that amp can make things sound a little thin.

To me its a step up from the other speakers
post #47570 of 51438
afrogt, I also could gone the route and picked the 1.8 or the V2.4i. But since I had already purchased the V2.2i I wanted to get
a speakers that could hold its own in 2 channel stereo but if needed I could incorporate it with the V2.2i for a HT setup. So that
in my thinking ruled out the 1.8. On the V2.4i most everything I read was that even though a great speaker it could be a bit boomy and placement
could be of some concerns with and with my walls upstairs and downstairs they are all toed in and I didnt want to have to bring the V2.4i to much forward from the wall.
Also and I think fears4ears commented also that since the V2.4i could be abit boomy it took away from some of the mids.. So since I am not a real big base head
the V2.3i seemed to be the right fit. More bass than the V2.2i a smaller footprint than the 1.8 and V2.4i. I took a gamble on it and can say I am very pleased
with this speaker and would have no problem selling my rc-70's. Though if I didnt have the V2.3i I wouldnt let the rc-70's go they are a great speaker.Now is it a night and day
type thing no because the RC-70's do really good with a lot of music but there just not as well rounded of a speaker compared the the old Veritas. Hope that helps. As far as the V6.2
I personally wouldnt buy it strictly for music even though it performs well, I prefer it in HT enviroment compared to 2 channel, the RC-line for me is better.

Energy Power 10 Sub - 65.xx shipped USA

How bad can it be? Well knowing its not an S10.3 type of silly value of course.

http://goo.gl/qeJCi
post #47572 of 51438
Well it only goes down to 45Hz (+/-3) and is rated at 100 watt peak, 50 watt RMS. The question is, how good could it be?

Well, at $64, if you get two, don't you get 100 watts and 90 Hz? Isn't that better? I think I'll trade in my dual S10.3's

eek.gif I'm glad I got some good small subs from Energy before they went south (S10.3's, ESW-V10) and a Mirage S8.

I'm loving my S10.3. I wish I had another.

They're really good together, I dropped in the other subs to test out the mix, but to my ears the S10.3's shine in my apartment setup. The V10 is in the bedroom, the S8 is awaiting my daughter settling in a good apartment, will be matched up with 4 RC mini's and a Mirage V2 center.

Seriously. RC-10s get down to 50hZ. My Outlaw 8" sub goes down to 28 hZ and has 150 watts RMS and 800 watt peak. For an 8" sub to completely whoop a 10" by this much is sad. Granted it's a high quality 8", but still there is no excuse to have it go 5hZ lower than bookshelves and then have such measly power (and have the word POWER in its name...).

My smallest sub, and small it is is the Mirage Omni S8, 400 watts dynamic, 100 watts RMS, 27 Hz to 120 Hz, 8" . Not the equal of the Outlaw, but very tight and controlled (I like music) and can hold its own in small spaces.

As the S and V series shows, Energy did know how to do subs well, the POWER subs don't bode well for the upcoming towers.

hernanu, whats your thoughts on your V-SW10 ?

Really nice with music, I had it mixed in with one of the S10.3's and thought it might be better in my bedroom since it is very smooth. Both setups do music, it's just that the bedroom does music almost exclusively. Doesn't lack for power (300 watts RMS, 1200 dynamic), and it can reach low enough for me (23 Hz, 120 Hz) in an apartment environment.

More than that., it is consistent, small and very nice looking so it is perfect for what it's doing. If I had two, they might supplant the S10.3's in the living room, but it would be a tough little choice.

If I move into a larger space, I may use three subs (has anyone done this?) or just step up to a more robust sub. The sound, though since I don't blow doors off is excellent for me for any kind of music - from bass heavy (dubstep, rap and disco) to one with a wide range (blues, classical and jazz) and everything in between.
