Thank you both (@jjackkrash

I spent some time reviewing other options focusing on ones with higher sensitivity and found the following that are a bit better than the RSL’s.
Klipsch R-5800-WII has sensitivity of 94db but priced higher at $399 retail but around $280 on eBay.
HSU HIW-1 has a sensitivity of 92db priced at $150
I also looked at the JBLs from worldwidestereo and they have Arena 8IW on clearance prices at $120. The sensitivity is only 88db though.
Considering the price difference between these, I would’ve just gone with the JBL Arena 8IW but given the big difference in sensitivity between these and the 1099s, I am thinking if I should go with the HSU or bite the bullet and go with the Klipsch which come the closest to the 1099s on sensitivity.
I’m sure we can’t look at just one aspect of a speaker (sensitivity) but given that I am still figuring all this speaker terminology, I would like to get your thoughts.
