Looking for small center speaker

Tom55Tom55 Posts: 1
I am currently using RT55 fronts and R10 rear speakers in my home theater setup. (The receiver is a Yamaha HTR-5150. No sub.) I have a CS300 center but am not using it due to fit issues. With the current setup it is difficult in some movies to hear dialog without the louder portions being too loud. Would adding a small center channel speaker help? I only have about 6 inches of height and 7 inches of depth below the TV to work with. I am looking at the Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000. Would that speaker be a close enough match to the RT55s? Alternatives?

    That’s a good center for the size. I ran it for a while with promonitor 800s in the main living room HT and with a good sub I was surprised how effective it was. The timbre will be slightly different but unless you are listening to lots of concert blu rays or multi channel SACDs I don’t think it will bother you. And if you buy a used one you can just resell it if you decide you don’t like it...
