I posted this question on an Energy thread in another forum. Thought I should give equal time here.

So how do these compare?

The only time I have heard RC70s was in a noisy store so it was an unfair comparison but to me they sounded muffled in comparison.

Here Is a comparison of the Axiom M80 and the Energy Veritas 2.4i, it's a good read.

I read that article and even resurrected that thread from 3 years ago. Is Craigsub still on this thread? I was wondering if there were any updates or different mindset for today.

He runs Tweak City Audio now and they have their own forum over there.

Bob, you may have come across this info already....I, too, was researching the RC line of Energy's and I came across some conflicting info from a couple of the "pro" reviews. One said that the RC-LCR(centre) was "perfectly timbre matched" with the RC70s and another "pro" said there was "no denying the fact, the centre was NOT timbre matched". I guess this merely proves what everyone says....you should hear the speakers with your own ears. All said, though, I think Energy's are an excellent speaker, esp for the $$.

I took about 2 years to audition various brands, some costing 2-3 times the Axioms, you know the decision I made.
