I don't know what you consider a "decent price" but I think this is a decent price considering what others have them listed for. Take a look.....

Thanks for the link. That is for a single CRS-3 but I was hoping to get the center channel with the "4" woofers and a bit larger then a single CRS-3 but its something to consider and would work fine. :-k

The only thing that is keeping me from buying a Sunfire center (either CRS-3c or CRM-2c) is the worry about dispersion on the horizontal axis. If you lay that puppy down, you have the width of the ribbon in which to sit in, and that's it. Ribbons don't disperse from the ends, they beam within the width (or length) of the ribbon. Probably much better to put it on its end, but that won't work for my setup. I think I'm doomed to using cones, unless I can come up with a 48" ribbon solution like Jean and her husband made. And that still only has a listening width of 4 feet.
It should sound like it isn't there!

The centers have a special grill cover to help project the sound from side to side. It's still directional but most speakers are to some extent. In my experiance, with surround sound you're usually limited to a fairly small sweet spot, one to two seats.

I am lucky as I don't have that problem but wouldn't a single CRM-2 work for you?

My center fits in a drawer that has a cloth front beneath the TV. It is only 7½" high.

Bill,

Too bad your room is not a tad wider. Loving my dual Plat 4's as center channels. \:D/ Vertical dispersion pattern is the way to go and with 60 inch ribbons on each side of TV, the vocals couldn't be more realistic. =D> Center imaging dead on. Effortless reproduction! Not an overkill by any means. The ultimate center channel setup IMHO I have experienced and listened to so far. \:D/

WAF is actually a little better also. With the barn doors against the wall instead of 4 to 5 feet out in the room as mains, they are not near as imposing. Of course, then the Legacy Whisper XD's took their place as mains. :shock: :shock: They are no means bookshelf speakers, to say the least. :lol: :lol: A little taller than the Plat's, but not quite as wide. ](*,) ](*,) Gotta love the wives that put up with this hobby of ours.

Just run three centers, two on top of the tv and one below. Point the bottom one straight foward and angle the top two to each side slightly. PERFECT!!!! :D :D :D
