Hi. My set up uses Monitor Audio Radius speakers -- I have the slim Radius 270's for the left and right front channels and R90s for surround and am using the R180 as a center channel speaker. Not so happy with the R180 as a center -- the question is -- does anyone have any suggestions on a new center that would "match" the R270's left and rights? I have a very unusual space and really cant swap out the R270's (though I know all three front speakers should match) ... Thoughts/help would be appreciated. Thanks!

What about a 3rd matching speaker for the center. 3 towers for the front would be nice

Would a R250 fit in the same location as the R180 you have now? If so, that would be the closest to the R270's for a match.

Thanks, I;ll check out the R250 .... just worried about "matching" the front left and right with the center ... I assume i have to stick with Monitor Audio to come as close as possible (?) Anyone disagree? Thanks.

Well ... so much for that -- good idea, but the R250 is 29-plus inches long -- i have a defined space of about 24 inches. Wow, this is frustrating. Anyone else have a thought?

How about the R225? It's 24" in length.

Thanks kwkshift. Yeah, I saw that. Actually waiting for the cabinet to come -- supposed to be 24 inches where the center will go; but at this point, i will measure it (it's custom) b/c I have a feeling it may come up a bit short ....
