    Hi

    Most THX front speakers tend to be fairly large (Kef THX) or box shaped (M&K). I´ve heard it can be a bit of a nightmare getting two centre speakers to work properly due to cancellations etc. Would´nt you be better with a single large centre?? Something like the Kef Reference 200 centre or the Kef THX centre.

    Thanks for reply i have been useing Kef 100c which used to sit on top of a 46" rear projection tv
    I now have a screen that comes down in front of the tv leaving the centre speaker behind the screen
    I then placed the centre on the floor that sounded allright but was prone to kids cat etc standing on it
    I had 2 old celisten speakers so i placed them under the wings of the tv this sounds ok but makes the tv look big & dare i say it ugly
    so the plan was to use 2 small decent speakers as centres

    How about a stand for the centre speaker? High enough so that it comes up to the bottom of the TV screen and the PJ screen. That´ll keep it off the floor, either that or ban the kids/cat from the room!!:D
