Yeah I had to flip the center sideways vertical it sounds much better than horizontal but seems too high for full-screen movies.
Why does voice just sound wrong when Center channel is flipped Horizontal normal placement sounds wrong?


Sadly flipping it vertical is not an option for full screen/REAL widescreen movies.
I don't like black bars either :( widescreen on, a wide tv? weird

Yeah, there are a lot of issues with horizontal MTM center channel speakers. They will generally sound better if placed vertically. When in the horizontal position, unless you are sitting in the sweet spot, you will usually get some cancellation of some frequencies resulting in pretty poor off-axis response, comb filtering and lobing. The MTM center is a compromise that many of us have to make in our home theaters. Ideally our center speaker would be identical to our L & R, be placed exactly in the middle of the two and at the same height. Of course LCD, CRT and Plasma monitors are not acoustically transparent so most of us place a horizontal MTM center above or below.

The horn also looks smaller than Kf 26 towers, making treble un-even :dumbcrazy: , which dosnt match with towers horn size?:nono:
A larger $400 center would work perfect why no trim line??For bigger center ,.
