Evening everyone,

Looking to get a center speaker for my HT. Receiver is capable of pushing 110w to the center. Hoping to get a pioneer model. Everything I currently have is pioneer so was just going to keep that theme going. Price range I'd say anything under 200$ Any suggestions?

I dont mind buying used, or new. Doesn't matter. Money goes further used.

Thanks in advance.

A center should typically timbre match the front left/right speakers. That typically means getting either (a) the exact same speaker as the left/right or (b) the center designed by the manufacturer to match.

What exact speakers are you using for the left and right front right now?

Best match is another HPM-100, if you can find one and have room for a vertical speaker as a center smile.gif

Otherwise, I have no idea how you'd find a match for those speakers. Sorry frown.gif

They are not cheap - and are popular for a vintage speaker.
