Center to match with some older Mirage speakers

I have some Mirage M-490 speakers that I've had since high school hooked up to a Marantz SR66U receiver, amazing speakers. I use them for music and for HT audio. I'm sick of whisper quiet dialogue while having blasting special effects and window rattling bass.

Just looking for something cheap for now and came across either the Polk CS-2 or the CS-10 centers. I'm guessing that the CS-2 might be a better match because of the bigger drivers (6.5" vs 5.25")?

Any advice for a noob is appreciated!

Specs for your M490 speakers. Google search gave me this...

- 1" Pure Titanium Tweeter with cloth suspension.
- 8" Injection molded polypropylene with rubber surround
- Crossover point 2khz
- 86db
- 6ohm nominal, 4ohm min
- 40-22khz
- 50-150 watts rms
- 28 lbs, 19 1/4", 9 5/5", 10 3/8"

These speakers are from the early to mid nineties, probably 1992 - 96. They have a titanium dome tweeter. I'm sure Energy has a similar model as Mirage and Energy shared drivers and features back then. This is not an omnipolar speaker like many Mirage models.

Search for an older Mirage or Energy center channel, perhaps the Energy AC300 or RVS center speaker. Mirage speakers would be the FRX-C and OM-C3 The OM-C3 has the titianium tweeter.

The Polks will be too bright.
