I suggest the Cambridge Audio S50 center speaker; it is excellent-sounding, and also compact.
A center speaker, IMO, should only operate from 120 Hz up. Some people buy speakers with drivers that are too large, and these do not usually sound their best in the critical mid-range. The Axiom, IMO, has two basic problems; aluminum cones and drivers that are too large.
I believe in letting the front main speakers put out bass down to 50 Hz or so, the sub operate only from 20 to 50 Hz, and the center from 120 Hz up.
You may get lots of different opinions on this, but that is what seems to work best in my experiences.
