I'm looking for a wall mounted below the TV center channel upgrade but only if it is a big enough upgrade to justify it.

Under $1000

Currently:

Center Channel: Atlantic Technology FS3200C
Fronts: Polkaudio rti10
Subwoofer: Epik Legend
Rears: In Wall Boston Acoustics
Receiver: Denon 2112


I'd like the depth to be under 4 inches, and around 8 inches tall. It can probably be as wide as it needs to be since it will be below a 65 inch TV.


I've found recommendations of:

Definitive Technology Mythos Ten
Totem Tribe (Which model? How much are they? Can they be bought online?)
Revel C10 (How much? Can it be bought online?)

What else? Any info on these?

With Polk fronts you should probably consider getting a center from them as well. That way, the voicing will be similar.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

I looked into polk but didn't find anything that fit the bill really.

Comes in black and cherry finishes:

JBL LC2 - a 4-way with dual 6" woofers so should have no problem with just about any soundtrack.

Also, JBLs generally seem to sound a bit bright to many people, so they have a decent chance of matching up pretty well with your Polks.

That center looks good but it won't work dimension wise.

VM20 from polk audio will match closer then any of your choices. The Mythos 10 is a great center channel but better paired with Mythos series fronts and surround speakers.
The center channel is the worse speaker to mis match in a system. You can get away with it on surround channel speakers if they are close in timbre.

I was thinking of getting a third RTI10 and putting it vertical in the middle, but my girlfriend doesn't like the idea.

I looked at Triad, but it says it's 10 inches wide. That seems very wide (tall) and I think it's too tall for my space.

These look very interesting, thanks for the suggestion.

Do you know prices?

I don't sell that line, so I don't know the pricing. But you can contact them to find a dealer.

Curious. What don't you like about the FS-3200?

Not sure acoustically, but I'd like a speaker that's less deep and a bit wider to look better with a 65 inch above it. However, I don't want to downgrade in sound quality.
