    Having got a 6.1 amp, I'm thinking of moving my mission 70 centre speaker to the rear centre and replacing it with a Mission M7C1. All my speakers at the moment are Mission 70's so the M7C1 would be the only that would be different. Would anyone know if this is a good move?

    Has anyone got the M7C1 and if so what do you think of it - is it a good speaker?

    Thanks

    Get the M7C2 if you can, it's a far better speaker.

    I went from a 70, to a M7C1 to an M7C2.

    Thanks. How much better is the M7C2 is over the M7C1 (is it very noticeable)? I looked at the M7C1 because RS is selling it for £50 and I wanted to make use of the rear centre channel. It also looks more stylish.

    Hi Greyhound
    If 50 quid is your budget then get the m7c1 it will do a better job than the m70,the m7c2 is again a good step up from the m7c1 it is a much larger better built centre than the m7c1 and yes i have owned the m7c2 (my younger brother has the m7c1).
    Cheers Gonzo.

    I had the M7C1,for about a week before I got the M7C2.
    I suppose if you can get two C1's for about the same cost of one of the C2's then it makes sense,just dont try a C2 at a later stage though or you will kick yourself.

    I found the M7C2 to be much better than the M7C1, but then by the time I changed the M7C1, it was paired with M74's and was clearly outclassed.

    Thanks for replying guys. I now discovered (from my other thread) that my speakers are not M70s but Mission 70s from the 700 series. Sorry for the confusion but I thought they were the same thing. Would anyone know if the M7C1 would still be a good upgrade for the centre? I read somewhere that the front left, right and centre need to be compatible with each other. I know the M7C1 complements the M70 series but would it complement the 700 series front left and right speakers?

    No. It sounds very different unfortunately. I used a M7C1 with Mission 700's and the front soundstage had a large (unpleasant) lift in treble as it panned left-centre-right. The 70's are more mellow sounding (and better) than the M7C1.

    Thanks Nobber22. Did you replace the M7C1 with another more suitable speaker to match the 700s? If so, what did you go for? I don't think you can buy the Mission 70s (700 series) anymore.
