I use Monitor 10A's for my front speakers. They are approx 10 feet apart from each other (with a 56" projection TV in the middle). With a separation of only 10 feet, would it be of any value of buying a cs400i to place on the TV, or am I not going to see any enhancement in the surround effect? Since the Monitors are on the original Polk stands and are toed in the recommended 10 degrees (viewing distance ranges from 10 to 16 feet), I am wondering if the center will go unnoticed? I would rather spend the money on rear surrounds if I don't need the center. I only have enough money (barely) to get one or the other. I already have a pair of RTi28's for the side surrounds.
If the recommendation is No center, how do I wire so the center channel is distributed to the two front speakers?
If a center channel is recommended, any places to shop for them besides E-bay? Folks here say a used cs400i should go for $175 plus shipping, but E-bay prices get ridiculous (I am sure there is alot of bid rigging going on).
