I just purchased a pair of TSi200 for my front speakers and a CS20 for the center channel.
I have an existing 10” base and 2 rear bi-pole surround speakers that will do for now. I'm using a Onkyo tx-nr616 receiver. The setup sounds good, still tweaking the setting, but I like what I hear.
My dilemma, the new cabinet we purchased for our LED TV is great except for the space where one would typically put a center channel speaker goes.
It’s ˝ inch too small for a CS20!!!!!!!!!
Option1: I could return the CS20 for a CS10 and it would fit, but how is the sound compared to the CS20? Anybody out there running a CS10 with TSi200 for fronts and happy…or not happy, wishing they went bigger? I fear that the CS10 just won’t cut it and they they will seem underwhelming compared to the CS20
Option2: Another option is to mount the speaker above the TV (on a shelf maybe?) If the center channel is say 3 feet higher than the front speakers will it sound any different? Shouldn’t the center channel and fronts be at about the same height?
Any feedback especially from TSi200/CS10/CS20 owners will be greatly appreciated.
