Why not another G12 or G16 if you like your current speakers? They can be used as a left, center or right speaker.

Well then you post should be "I want 3 new front speakers", not just a center. You should have said you hate your current speakers in your original post.

What's your budget for 3 speakers and do they need to be the flat panel type?

Yep, another of the same would be the correct choice for a center. If you use something else, you will like your speakers even less than you do now.

As a matter of fact I want the farthest thing from a flat panel speaker and at least 5 1/4 speakers in center

Three Ascend HTM200's will cost $470 shipped, and easily outperform those to small for their own good Klipsch's...

http://www.ascendacoustics.com/pages/products/speakers/htm200/htm200.html

If you're looking for bigger Ascend 170's, work. Also 3 Arx A2's would be a good choice

You can get 3 CBM-170's for about $40 more
http://www.ascendacoustics.com/pages/products/speakers/cbm170/cbm170.html

Or 2 CBM-170's and the 340SE center for about $650.
http://www.ascendacoustics.com/pages/products/speakers/cmt340c/cmt340c.html

The Energy V5.2's are a bargain though and look better too. Might even be able to upgrade your subwoofer with the remaining $240.

Have no idea but the sale started right after Christmas. You can always call them on Monday.
You said you had $400 to spend on a center. $400 will get you 2 V5.2's if you don't have enough for a 3rd one right now. That's a least a good start. But if you really have up to $750 then you should get your 3 speakers now,.

I wouldn't wait long though. They had a sale similar to this on Energy V6.2 towers and they sold out quickly. Now they're nowhere to be found at all.

+1 on the Veritas 5.2C. I ordered three for my front stage and coudn't be happier. Just check your tweeters when you get the speakers to see if any has dented domes. Some peo´ple have had problems with those. But excellent speakers and at that price it's a steal.

These are excellent speakers and made to be l/c/r

They are the same thing as these but 1 model year older in a different cabinet. I listened to them side by side and they sound identical.

You could buy 5 of them with your budget and have a nice 5.1 setup. Don't let the price fool you. Read the reviews. These are nice budget speakers.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!
