I looked at the NXG speakers but without specs and some more reviews, I don't want to take the chance on them. The pioneers could possibly work, but the center channel is just way too big. Are there any smaller center speakers that would work with those surrounds (bs21/22)? If not, then the NHT's are the way that I am leaning.

Sounds like your search is over. I think most people would agree that the NHTs are very good speakers for their size. You aren't going to do substantially better with any other small speaker at that price.

Yup. Still wish they had a dedicated center channel, but oh well.

I think this would work: http://www.nhthifi.com/Absolute-Center?sc=12&category=3774.

Ask NHT

I think the NHT's would be a good bet. I believe they are sealed and that might help a bit if you are placing them in your bookshelf. I have the Classic 3's and 3 Center and really like them. I also had to put them in a bookshelf and was drawn to them because they were sealed. I am no expert but have been happy with my purchase.

Good luck

Cel4145---that center blows my budget to hell and is too big. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Well using three matching SuperZeros across the front is actually the best practice for the best front soundstage because it's an exact timbre match; center channels are an SQ compromise. So you'll be good to go with just that smile.gif

Well I contacted Onecall to see if they would deal with me on the 2.0's. They said they only had one in stock and no idea when they would be getting more. They did give me a price break though. Just need for them to get them in and I will be ordering 5.
