Center Channel Decisions...

Hey all, im just trying to get together a make-shift decent sounding 5.1 system with the emphaisis on 2.1 stereo. Right now ive got:

Harman Kardon AVR145
Apple iBook
2 MK S85
Klipsch 8" sub
and 2 small Klipsch satellites.

I am looking for advice about a relatively cheap center channel between $50 and $150. My first choice is the smallest Aperion center channel or possibly a polk/JBL center. I am not sure though, I am just looking for any advice/comment and what not. Thanks, Luke

1. Best is to get another of whatever is your L/R speaker.
2. Next is to get something from the same manufacturer and that uses the same drivers.
3. Anything else is a crap-shoot in terms of timbre-match and integration. Cut and try.

I will just add, "What he said."

Exactly.
