Greetings. Currently I have a Polk Monitor CS1, Polk 50s, and Polk 30's as my system. I also have a VSX 821 Receiver. I sit about 20 feet behind where my front speakers are, and about 3 feet away from where my rear speakers are.
As you can imagine, I have no trouble hearing the rear speakers, but sometimes in quiet scenes, I have a little trouble making out words from the front of the room. It seems a little muddy, and a little quiet.
I also just added 2 big subs to the scene, and I would say it has made the problem worse. When I really crank the receiver up, the problem gets much better, but I'd like to be able to decipher words and quiet scenes without really working the system, especially for late night viewing.
So anyways, I have the Polk monitors in their Cherry veneer. Is there a more 'crystal clear' center channel that would match? I'm sure most would say the CS2, but as far as I can tell it has the exact same 1" tweeter and I'm thinking I either need more tweeters, something with a horn, or else just something more dynamic and I'm not sure the CS2 has all that. So, what are my options?
