There's no such thing as an overkill center.... I've seen plenty of underkilled centers..

It's where all the magic happens!

Yea not worried about overkill anymore, just timbre
Matching a center that will be worth buying due to of axis issues, I assume all def tech centers will have this issue.

I'm leaning mythos 8 someone have this as a center? Horizontal?

I am not able to help you with this problem if there is no room for a well-designed center. How much space do you have? Where is it situated?
