Phantom Center: Length of front speaker wall impact the the listener
I have a very traditional basement room. We use it for home theater and music listening purposes. Measuring 13 ft wide(where the back of the speakers reside) x 21 length. We sit about 14 feet back front the screen but 12 ft in front of the imaginary line for the "phantom" center and the two mains. My question is we are upgrading to a new pair of speakers and only have a Aerial Accoustics CC5. Would it make sense to get rid of the centers base on the length of the front wall and the seating distance?
Does length of the front speaker wall and seating distance impact the need for a center channel?
Please note that it is only my wife and me typically in the room.
Thanks in advance
