    hi i've just got a new av rack (2 ikea oppli's) and my centre speaker doesnt fit in the gap 44cm x 25cm. i am looking for just a centre speaker that will fit in the gap, stay about the same price as the other speakers and sounds good!


    speaker also needs to be beech in colour


    my current speakers are all missions

    M72, M7C1, 70DS, M70as

    any suggestions welcome. thanks in advance :lease:

    So you need a smaller mission or need to change the fronts as well...

    So beyond pointing out the obvious I can't really help :rolleyes:

    MK make a small centre (can't remember the range- they're all small).

    The MK one is about £250. If there's a Mission that fits it'll probably be a better fit sonically. How "good" it is...?

    ;)

    Much cheaper to drill new holes for the pegs for the two vertical pieces so you get a wider centre area. Shouldn't take too long.

    yeah i think i am gonna do something to fit it in because i am perfectly happy with it and don;t really want to spend £100 changing it. if i made the middle section bigger i couldnt get av equipment either side and also as i have one on top of the other (opplis) it may look a bit weird. cheers for the reply

    If you do that can you let us know how you get on and maybe post a picture of what it looks like?

    I'd like to try this as I'm fedup of my Ruark centre crushing my TV.
