Swap out B&W DM604 for Klipsch RP-6000f?

Current setup:

B&W DM604 for Mains
Klipsch 450C for Centre
Klipsch 140-SA Atmos Modules (sitting on top of Mains)
Room is 20 ft x 13ft, 8ft ceiling

There is a deal on Klipsch RP-6000f here now (I live in New Zealand), so I thought a good time to change out the B&W's for all speakers to match. After I sell the B&W's, I would need to add extra funds to buy the RP-6000's.
Specs on the RP-8000's look better than the B&W's.

The RP-8000's are twice the price of the RP-6000's, so those are beyond my budget.

The system sounds great now, so wondering if it is worth it?

Any advice appreciated

If you are using a subwoofer the RP8000f won't sound much different to the RP6000f.

Unless you're noticing and if so and are bothered by any sonic characteristic difference with the Klipsch center, IMO it's pretty much a lateral move. Those B&Ws are pretty well reviewed.

Klipsch RF-62II, RC-500, RS-400, SVS PC12+,
Def Tech SC8000
Onkyo RZ820
Roku Ultra, Apple TV, Sharp 70" Quattron
