Home Theater Help

About 4 years ago I upgraded my Home Theater System from an all-in-one system. I purchased an Onkyo TX-SR444 and a set of Energy Take 5.1 Classic Speakers. Since that time, 3 of the 4 bookshelf speaker tweeters have failed and I don't understand why. I called customer support, as the warranty is still in effect, but they thought that since so many had failed, it was most likely a result of listening too loud. The system is used mainly for movies and I feel as though the speakers haven't been abused. Have I made a mistake with set-up, speaker selection, receiver choice, or am I really listening to movies too loud. I am very much a novice and realize I need help so that this won't just happen again.

Should I ...

1) spend $30 per speaker for new tweeters.
2) replace the tweeter in one of the bookshelf speakers and use the pair for rear speakers, continuing to use the Energy center and sub, while purchasing a new set of towers. I'm trying to keep new purchases under $300-400.
3) or something else.

Thanks in advance.

I wouldn’t mess around fixing any of them. If 3 of the 4 failed. Keep the center if its working good and the sub and put your money into new LR mains and find a couple new cheaper rears. That would be the lowest cost way to upgrade IMO. Others may have different ideas.

Buy better quality speakers. I have had same speakers for 10 plus years and one pair is 15 years old with zero issues. I listen to movies really loud too by the way!
