I picked up a pair of older Image 1B's, which are serving main duty in a 2.0 setup -- my first foray into HT. I do enjoy them, but I find that for HT duty, dialogue is not quite as crisp as I'd like, especially at lower volumes.
The room IS quite large, as I'm in an open, great-room style apartment, which could have something to do with it, but i'm not quite sure whether to add a center (8C, 9C, C40, etc)? or re-sell them and start over with something else before I go too far down this path.
Funds aren't great, but would I be better off going with the newer Alpha B1's, and a matching center? budget and replace with newer Image B5/6's, then build as i am able? any thoughts?
