Help a newbie: centre speaker & sub


Standard Member
Hi there!

I could do with some help finding an centre speaker and sub to complement what I have at the moment. I've heard that you need to match the centre speak to your front speakers? If this is correct then i'm having a slight issue :(

I currently have:

A Pioneer VSX-1016V av reciever
Eltax monitor III bookshelfs
Mordaunt Short MS206's

I got all this for £280 i'm not sure how good that was but i'm pleased with the results so far. I bought the bookshelfs because to me they sounded better than some other alternatives however i'm really struggling to find a centre speaker to match them as no where seems to sell them.

If I can't get hold of a matching centre what would be your recommendations to go for?

Also a suggestion for a sub for this setup would be useful.

I mainly use the setup for films/ps3/music via pc.
Budget for centre roughly up to £150
Sub £250
I realise these may be low but this is my first setup and am just easing into it to see how much I personally value the system.

Any advice/help is greatly apprecicated! :D
