Replacing Infinity PC350 Center Channel.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

so its been a long time coming but this speaker is way too big for my computer lol.. as i have no way to mount it above the monitor (its to heavy) i have the monitor sitting on it. just a little too silly for me currently.

thats why im here looking for recomendations for a good sounding smallish center channel.

here is linky for all my system



thanks

what do you think about

There's absolutely nothing wrong with using matching speakers all around. Don't ask for advice if you don't want it. If you think I'm lying for whatever reason, ask at avsforum or audioholics or hometheatershack or some other a/v forum. Either use the appropriate speakers or don't use a center at all. I'm done here.

i was asking for advice replacing the center with somthing smaller. you gave me two things im not really looking to do. dont get butthurt cuz i dont agree with you. and with the P152 how would you suppose i would use this? if im tired of having my monitor sitting on my center channel? put it on a speaker thats even taller? ive given you good reasons why the ones you selected dont work.. dont cry.

for anyone else reading how do you feel about martin & logan centers?

You're the one being a fool. You wanted something smaller. I gave you two perfectly good suggestions. The PC250 is much smaller than the PC350. The P152 is smaller yet.

Using a non-matching speaker will sound weird. The P152 isn't anywhere near 18 lbs. Mount it to your wall or something and angle it down. It's not that complicated.

ive gone everywhere to find speaker wall mounts for speakers that are 20lb. they dont really exist.

and the pc350 is only like 3-4 inches smaller and still weighs too much.

How about you get your info straight from the manufacturer instead?
http://www.infinitysystems.com/home/...USA&Country=US
Weight13.5 lb (6kg)

Omnimount has several speaker mounts that support loads of 20 or 30 lbs.

I very much know what I'm talking about. A non timbre matched LRC will sound weird. It's quite easy to understand. When voices or action or whatever pans across the front stage, it'll sound odd if the center isn't timbre matched. It doesn't matter what brand of electronics you're using. You think your Onkyo receiver can magically make the speakers sound the same? You are the one who clearly has no idea what he's talking about. Seriously. Try asking at AVSforum or any other A/V forum, instead of staying willfully ignorant.

However, if your hearing simply isn't good enough to tell the difference, then by all means use a different center and have fun.
