    Default Can I use my 5jrs. and 4 to build home theater?

    I have a set of both 5Jrs. and 4's that instead of tossing and starting over, I'd like to use for "theater sound" for my HDTV. What center and subwoofer should I be looking for (either new or discontinued models). I'm very happy with the sound of these great speakers but I'm overwhelmed about matching a center and subwoofer. Thanks-- I'm definitely not a techinical type of guy.

    See this page for matching center to existing older equipment http://www.polkaudio.com/home/faqad/...le=centermatch

    The sub will not need to be matched per se.

    Welcome to the Club, griffis41.

    Agree with PW on the sub. Look around in the Sub/ Bass Control area and you'll see the models favored 'round here...

    As for the center, the above Polk link is a decent resource, but Polk tends to recommend what is still relatively easy to find (although in this case it doesn't look to have been updated to the latest models).

    Not to confuse you, but here's another link with a slightly different take...

    One of the issues that you face is the different generations of monitor series. Your 4's and 5jr's aren't even a guaranteed "match".

    I tried to find the parts list that I've seen here before, but can't locate it... If found, it can give some nice guidance by comparing the drivers used in various models.
