    Home Audio Speakers
    Hello I appeal to you because I do not know which central speaker to choose between these two models: Klipsh RP-404C Klipsh RP-500C Their characteristics are quite close. I doubt that the model with 4 speakers should be better but is the difference really significant for a room of 22 square...

    Home Audio Speakers
    I have gone through several center channel configurations in my HT. First was two BIC DV 84's placed head to head, wired in series. Sounded good, with a huge sound stage.
