Thanks. Yes. I am talking about the S2. I like the three way on that center. Why is that that a bunch of people say its performing poorly compared to the HTM62?

I went with this same set up and have been very pleased with how the HTM62 S2 and 686 (rears) match with the 685's. I don't feel like the 62 gets lost in this set up.
