I'm just confused with a speaker that is 4 times the price shouldn't there be something big I'd notice? I noticed a great difference moving from the Polk monitor 40 to the rf-82 II, but the same didn't happen with the center, not disappointed in it, but just sort of surprised, glad I have a matching set though lol... maybe I should do A-B-A-B testing
lot of variables:
Are you using Audyssey xt ir better yet X32? I use audyssey pro and with each step up you will notice a difference.
Have you put a laser (measure where tweeter is then put dot on front ave rear, connect dot with laser) on the sides of the center to MLP to be sure center tweeter is at ear height?
Crossover start at 80htz unless audyssey sets it higher (never lower where audyysey sets it).
I prefer these audyssey tweaks
1. DEQ = off
2. DV = OFF
3. Audyssey flat (I have a highly treated room)
4. Tone controls on with +5DB bass (this inky effects mid range bass, not LFE OUTPUT)
I would focus on positioning of center, a 1/8" seriously matters.
