I am looking for a good match for center to go with my mains B&W 705. It will be in a console that has a size limitation of 24"x 12" x19" deep so the prefered B&W HTS7 will not fit. I think I also (because of the 3 sided box it is going in) need something that is not rear ported. I need something that will bring the dialog out on the movies so when they are talking with an accent I don't have to raise the volumeo_O
Chain and room
Denon X3300W
B&W 705 fronts
RSL X 4 celing
Sunfire True sub X 2
Room 20' x 30'
I have been looking at Aperion Versus II, Aperion 5C, and Elac Debut C 6.2 as they all have close to the same specs as the B&W's

Thanks for your thoughts

Having owned several generations of 6, 7, and 8 series B&W speakers, I find that they are all voiced very similar. I recently sold my 805D3s and "down graded" to the 705S2s. I much prefer the new 7 series and have heard the matching center. The HTM71S2 is quite impressive. It will timbre match your mains and will fill your large room. The dimensions seem to fit your cabinet.

Not sure if in-wall is an option, but the Cinema 7 is a superb speaker that I and many others use as a center.

Look into the Aerial Acoustics CC3C. It's 24x9x11.5.
I purchased the CC3C and it's paired with my Von Schweikert VR-4jr's and couldn't be happier. Dialogue is incredibly clear and ironically the very first "test" I did was play the movie Life-lots of different accents that came through without having to turn it up or rewinding. I purchased it without even auditioning as there were no dealers in my area but given the high praise of there other speakers I felt I couldn't go wrong. If there's no dealers near you contact Aerial and they will sell directly to you.

How about a single or 2nd set of 705's as the center channel?
