Because of the way midrange and bass frequencies propogate into the room (see below), it's these frequencies that will be interfered with. With the centre moved, you should notice things like improved clarity of voices/vocals and more coherent/fuller upper bass, giving you more feel or "punch". Many musical instruments have their fundamental frequencies spanning this upper bass/lower midrange. The centre content might actually "lock in" to the screen action better too. Of course, re-run Audyssey to optimise your results.
If the centre is firing a foot over your head, you perhaps don't need the wedges or that amount of uptilt. I think pulling the speaker all the way forward will achieve what you're trying to do with the wedges anyway.
BTW: If your bride is anything like mine, she may hate
the look of the speaker pulled right forward ("It looks silly!")... some compomise may be required. I generally have mine back at a WAF distance for casual TV viewing etc, but pull them forward to "attack position" for serious listening or movie watching. Audyssey is based on the latter position. More often than not, I "forget" to push them back.
[BTW #2: I love the look of JTR's LP versions... I think it's that the baffle is chock full of drivers!]
