    Default What to use as center and rears w/maggies

    i am currently running mg1's for fronts/polk monitor 4's for rears and a polk center channel(no number on center), can switch to wharfedales for rear's and buy a wharfedale center so am curious as to which will sound "better" with the maggies..i really dont have the room for a set of maggie rears and my wife really prefers a center channel to a phantom one..oh yeah, i also have a jbl sc 305 i think it is center channel also...

    any tips or suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated, especially those that use as much of my current stuff as possible :)

    thanks!

    You don't have room for even MMGW/MC1 or an MMGC/CC3? The W and MC1 are mounted flush on the wall and only need a little adjustment for listening position. The C/CC3 are traditional center channel footprint but done in planar form.

    I've heard a 5.1 MC series setup with a Rel subwoofer and it was excellent.

    I'm going to bump this with discussion of the MMGW.

    Would I be crazy to use a pair of MMGW as PC speakers? My issue is I don't have much desk space, but plenty of wall behind the desk and PC. Would there be a better option for a thin, wall mounted speaker?

    I agree on the Mini-Maggie concept, but I just don't have the desk space for them. If they could be wall mounted I'd be in, but I believe they are designed like regular bi-polar Maggies that need a lot of breathing room.

    Sorry for being thick, but please explain a little more. My desk is against the wall in a corner and there is no room on the desk. Did you mean next to the desk?

    The mini-Maggies are intended for near-field listening in a small space. Desk-top placement with little space behind them actually enhances what they are capable of. Give them a try, and I think you will be as impressed as I was. They even have a ribbon tweeter!
