Need Suggestion: White Center Speaker for Theater Room to match Polk 70's

I'm looking for a white colored center Speaker that can match my front Polk 70's.

It's hard to find color white. Only one i've seen is the Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 Compact Center Speaker.


Can I do 2 center speakers of this model and have them side by side? I'll be sitting about 10-15 feet back.

Is that going to be big enough to handle it? The room is fairly large, 16 feet wide but long at 30feet.

The receiver I am running is the Pioneer 1120. If I split the center line into 2 center speakers, does that work? Will my receiver have enough power to handle it?

or another option is if it is easy to paint and redo the mesh to white on other speakers?

The ONLY speaker that will be certain to give you a tonal match is a Polk center channel (CS1, 2, 20). Speakers from another brand may not sound right in combo with the Polk 70s for movies and games.

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

^^^ Agreed CS2 is best match.

OP why do you want/need a white center when your front L&R aren't white?

i prefer white speaker center because I need to mount the center speaker on the ceiling. This will sit more cleanly with the ceiling. I need it for aesthectics as this room is dual purpose. I currently have the CS2 for my TV room. Do you think it's easy to paint white and redo the mesh in white?
