    If your receiver can handle a 4 ohm load on the center channel run them in parallel, if not run them in series. In series you will notice a drop in out put, but don't fret, just recalibrate your system to bring the center volume back up.

    Aite, sounds good. My reciver is rated to handle 6ohms and has a switching setting to account for this. But not 4 ohm.

    I guess series is the way to go then.

    Thanks guys.
