    Default Center/surrounds to match a set of Model 10 fronts?

    I'm not in front of them right now, but I had written this down from the back:

    Polk Audio Monitor Series 10 206821

    What would be recommended as a center to match? I'm not as concerned about voice-matching the rears, but I would guess I need to pick up a set of bookshelf speakers that also use the same tweeter and just use one as the center? I'm just concerned about the center being at a different height and also the magnet interfering with my screen? Thanks for the input!

    Hay cody,I use a monitor 7b as a center with a set of 10s as mains and another set of 7bs as rears all with peerless tweeters so they match.Sounds pretty good to me.I'm sure a set of monitor 5s would be OK if you match the tweeters with what you have in your 10s.I don't have a screen in my shop yet so maby one of the other members can answer your question on magnets interfering for you.I hope this helps.

    Thanks, I found some information on them and went ahead and bought them. Hoping to get them in soon, then possibly a receiver upgrade!

    I have a CS350 center speaker (black cabinet) for sale if you're interested.

    I may be interested... PM me with more information! Somewhat on a budget, as I recently bought a set of Model 10's and 4.6's!

    I use a pair of 4's as stereo centers with great results (my Yamaha DSP-A1 amp supports stereo centers). I still can't believe those things are over 30 years old (and with peerless tweets to boot).

    Looks like it will be Model 10's up front, 4.6's for surround, and a CS350 for center!

    The CS350 isn't a good match IMO. I used an RT7(same series as the 350) as my center speaker with Monitor RTA12's and it didn't blend well at all. It's best to stick with a model that uses the same tweeter as your front left and right speakers.

    It's probably the closest I can find available in my price range right now... this is the system at my weekend home, and I am only there a couple of times a month. I may be able to consider either a switch to a different center later, or possibly a tweeter upgrade to match my SL2500's in my fronts and surrounds.
