Calypte is on a distinguished road
IMHO, if you can, for the center, you should use a speaker identical to your L-R speakers. As another opinion, though, I once read an interesting comment by Paul Barton (PSB speakers) about center speakers. He said there are issues that center speakers encounter that the sides don't. Specifically, while your side speakers are standing in the clear on stands, and they are designed to sound best that way, the center speaker is often close to or butted up against the top or the bottom of the TV. The screen of the TV acts as an extended baffle for the woofer, and it alters the bass response. So the goal of achieving seamless pans is compromised. Maybe the HC-1 takes this into account. What about it, Kevin?
