    I have read that early on Polk recommended the CRS as center channel speakers. however those are hard to come by. I would think that many of the early monitors would be goo for this using the same or similar mids and tweets; Monitor 5,7,10 and maybe some of the rta's as well. i am sure others will chime in with more knowledge and experience matching these than myself.

    Monitor 5s & 7s will match for center, side & rear surrounds. I built a custom Center using a Monitor 10B crossover & drivers, plus two Monitor 5, 6.5 " PRs. I upgraded my 2As and Center to TL level, and the remaining 5s and 7s have RDO-194s
    The sound is amazing.
    You could also run a phantom center using the 2As. Many members here do it that way. It all depends on the size of your room, the placement of all your equipment, and seating arrangement.

    thanks jeremymarcinko and for everybody else who chimed in.

    here's my room specs. 15'(W)x20'(L)x8'(ht).

    i powered my SDA2a's with an Adcom GFA-555ii. the rest of the speakers are powered direct from my yamaha RX-a1000 AVR.
    the rest of my speakers are mixed. i purchased them all from ebay a couple of years ago when my interest from HT became bigger. i was just using a onkyo HTiB before.

    for now, i'll just get the CSiA6 or CSi5(polk on ebay) as my center channel. then i planned to go to franklin, TN this july to get the emotiva XPA-5 for my birthday. after that, i'll replace my SDA2a's with a pair of black RTiA9's($500) on ebay. and power them by the emotiva XPA-5.

    i'll move my Adcom amp and polk SDA's to another room for a pure musical Stereo Dimensional Array experience after.

    How's that for a plan? i'm open for suggestions. im on a tight budget for amps that's why i chose emotiva. can't afford right now for a $3k to $6k amplifier.
