    Default Need advice on a center speaker for new system

    In a new house I'm putting a surround and I plan to use a pair of vintage SDA 2s for the front, a pair of RC 85i for the rear and need advice for what to use for the center speaker and subwoofer. These will be used with a Sony 9100ES amp.

    I was given a pair of Phoenix Gold ATi6 (125 watt, 8 ohm with a 6.5" cone and a tweeter) and was wondering if I could connect these in parallel to use as a center or just use one? I'd rather have all Polk, but spouse wants to save money for blinds, curtains and other unimportant stuff. I would consider an older used speaker as the new Polks are a bit expensive for me. I'm thinking a center speaker in the $300 range.

    All suggestions appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    Bill

    Monitor 7's. Used typically go for $100-$120. Just use one, and keep the other as a back up. All you will ever need as a center.

    And for your sub, two of these would do well: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Definitive-T...item2a00816f1f

    A while back, I had two 200TL's which are the 12 inch versions and they performed wonderfully.

    I bought 2 pro sub 60's from these guys and they have performed,flawlessly....FYI...These 100TL's are 240v only,you would need a step-up transformer to use them in the US.....still a terrific deal,imo.....peter
