    Ideally you should be trying to match your centre to your fronts, i.e. they should be of the same manufacturer and range. If they're not then your front soundstage may not be tonally balanced.

    What fronts do you have?

    i have at present 5 (and one rear center which i rarely use) old wharfdale linton xp3's. ive modified them with new audax tweaters from maplins. the problem is there not shielded. so the centre, at the moment sits under a pc and the old pany 21" sits ontop of the pc, thus the pc shields the tv. i dont want to really have this sort of setup for my new JVC hv-32d40 which is comming thursday. so either ive goto find a way of shielding the centre or change it for a new centre.

    In view of the point that Tejstar made I don't suppose that anyone can advise you as the most suitable centre speaker will be the one that sounds most like a Wharfedale Linton XP3 with an Audax tweeter and only you will know what that sounds like
