The Speaker that Takes Center Stage
The in-wall center channel speakers is a critical part of any home theater system. Typically placed above or below the screen, the in wall center channel speaker reproduces almost all of a movie's dialogue and a good portion of the special effects we love, such as explosions and jet engines. A center channel loudspeaker is the heavy-lifter of your multi-channel home theater sound system. Over 50% of movie soundtrack information in a Dolby Digital soundtrack mix is delivered by the center channel speaker, so it has to be a real workhorse of a loudspeaker.
Choosing the Front Stage LCR Speakers: Don’t Mix & Match
There are a lot of factors that go into creating the right acoustic balance when you build your home theater or media room but some rules are never, ever debated. Experts agree that when you choose surround sound speakers, particularly LCR speakers, do not mix and match brands, speaker sizes, speaker materials, etc. Your surround sound speakers should have the same timbre match, which is a fancy way of saying they should all sound the same. So, if you’re going for our top of the line Kevlar, all the speakers should share the same cone material, crossover components, dome size, you get the picture.
