Re: Matching L/C/R but have to put center horizontally?

I'd look for the Infinity Beta C360 instead. It has always been the best center to use with the Infinity Primus P362s. I know they are discontinued but one should be able to find one with a little time and hard work.

Thanks for the responses.
No, the thread title didn't change
I'm not going AT, and there won't be a whole lot of room at the bottom of the screen
The 350 looks like a nice center and gets great reviews, so I'll probably just go that route. If I can stand it up vertically I definitely will, but I don't think it'll work.
Thanks again
What do you mean wonít work? Cinemas have been doing for decades since the dawn of sound 1927 The Jazz Singer. Okay maybe 1940 Fantasia (fantasound).

If you ask me they should be placed vertically thatís how it is in the dubbing stages and cinemas.

My JBL Control 5ís are all placed vertically.

I have friend that has mismatching (B&W CC6 centre) and it sounds ghastly because the tone is miles off I mean db off! Itís dull and lifeless over the (DM601 left/right) where the crossovers donít match.

Yeah its outputting too much in the mid range and less on the high range. It smears over left/right with poor half-panned sounds!

Its worse in Dolby stereo pro-logic because it needs to be turned up due to the nature of crosstalk over the left/right front.

I told him many times. (Get matching LCR) but I think the salesman got to him first and sold this centre channel nonsense to him.

He thinks a matching speaker for the centre will look silly because its standing on top of the TV. (Well LCD flat screen now)! It doesnít look no bad than how it sounds.

You only have to listen to the pink noise cycling around the room. Left HISS centre Hiss right HISS surrounds hIss. What a mess!

Anyhow if you happen to have a video projector that gets rarely used then (towers) yes all placed up vertically will look super cool. Otherwise youíd might as well place all LCR horizontally, now then!

Re: Matching L/C/R but have to put center horizontally?

I hadn't heard that about the beta being a good match for the primus towers. i'll look into that, thanks.

what i meant by it won't work, is that the infinity center is about 2' long, whereas i'll only have about 9 inches at the bottom of my non-AT screen. so if i stood it up vertically more than half of it would be blocked by the screen.
