    Default Upgrading Center Channel

    FONT=century]In an effort to upgrade the quality of my center channel, I purchased a CS 101 to replace the center speaker which came with the RM6000 set. I have 2 questions:

    1. Although I bought the speaker already, can I expect an improvement in sonic quality over the RM6000 center speaker?

    2. The space in my wall unit will not accomodate the CS101 w/o my cutting off the rubber feet on the cabinet (talk abount just missing the boat). Will I degrade sonics of the speaker by doing so?

    Your reply is appreciated

    I don't think you will notice much, if any improvement. The CS101 had a 4x6" midbass, and a 2" cone tweeter to match the first 'R' series from polk (if I remember correctly). Ie, the R1 and R2.

    The CS101 should definately be set to small, so rubber feet shouldn't be an issue from an isolation standpoint. I would still try to get SOMETHING in between it and the wall unit, try a thin felt, or thin sheet of neoprene (or thin neoprene pads).

    Cheers,

    Thanks Rooster. I got such a great deal on the CS101, I bought it without thinking whether it was a better speaker. But since I have it, I'll have to connect it and give it a try

    I believe the rm center will sound better as a unit as they are all the same.

    Thanks for your input Rooster and Mantis. Guess I'll keep the center I got with the RM set.
