I just have a couple of questions regarding selecting a new center. I appreciate any advice you can give me.
I have an Insignia HTIB. I purchased it with the intention of replacing it piece by piece as funds allow. (it's actually not a bad receiver for the money, but I digress) I saw that Best Buy dropped the price of their Polk T15 speakers to $50 a pair, so I picked up two pairs to replace my front and rear speakers. Well, seeing the dramatic improvement a pair of inexpensive speakers make, I've been bitten by the upgrade bug!
I'm planning on asking the wife for a center for Christmas, and I've narrowed it down to the CS10 or the CS20. I realize neither is matched to my existing speakers: is this something that's going to seriously impair my enjoyment of a new center? I'm planning on upgrading my T15 speakers to something from the TSi range eventually, so provided its not going to drive me nuts in the meantime, I'd rather make my selection with that in mind.
I'm leaning towards the CS20 at the minute, but my main concern is its size. It seems to be a pretty big speaker. It's going to have to sit on the bottom shelf of my TV stand, which gives me 8 1/2 inches of clearance. If anyone who owns a CS20 could tell me its height when angled to fire upward, I would very much appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!
