Centre Channel Speakers
Providing the dialogue speech channel when used as a part of a home cinema surround system, the centre channel speaker is a very important component, as speech makes up to 80% of the movie sound track, and clear reproduction of voice is key to maximum enjoyment of the movie. Try to go for the largest centre speaker you can afford/ accomodate for best performance, and locate it as close to your TV screen as possible. Most applications have the centre speaker positioned below or above the screen, so that the central image is focussed upon the screen action.
Connect your centre speaker to your AV Receiver using good quality single or bi-wire speaker cable and banana plugs. Speaker stands for centre channels are a great idea for best positioning close to a projection screen.
