    Default Cs400 Vs Cs300 Vs Cs350

    Hello all-

    I'm seeking opinions on the 3 listed centers speakers. I have a CS400, but we have moved and before I mount another shelf to put that beast on, I was thinking that a CS350 would sit on top of my big-screen much better. Granted it is much wider, but it does not have the same girth as the 400. Then I thought about maybe the 300? If anyone has owned all, or a couple of these speakers, I would appreciate the pros and cons of each. In a nutshell, will I lose anything going from my 400 to the 350 (1st choice) or 300? Please chime in!

    Thanks- Greg

    Same exact reason here. We moved into a new house and when you turn the corner from coming down the stairs there sits this beast. The 350 looks like it would fit much better and not seem so out of place.

    Default center speakers

    I own the cs350 and cs400 and cs400i center channel speakers.

    I can't tell any difference between the 400 and 400i in sound.
    The 350 is a completely different story. They are deeper and wider but not as tall.
    They don't match particularily well with the RT series speakers, but match up reasonably well with older sda speakers.
    I found they need more juice to get the same amount of sound out of them, maybe they are Less efficient, I'm not sure.
