Phantom centers create more problems than they solve IMO.

So I accidentally dented my new tweeter on my CM10 S2's during installation. The aluminum dome popped back up immediately but there's some kind of slight ripple/imprint area where the dent was. Will this affect the tweeter sound at all? I'm debating to send it all back to B&W and ask for another tweeter.

It most likely will not affect sound. However, your resale value will take a hit as you'll have to disclose that you've dented one of the tweeters. Man up and pay for a replacement. B&W owes you nothing.

Never heard of tilting the axis of the speaker? Works for me with 3 floorstanders that are just short of the bottom edge of the screen.

Right? There are always give and takes in the Home Theater world.

From what I hear, the phantom center is not so great when listening from the left or right. Also you have no option of running the center a little hot if you want louder dialogue

I'm listening to the 703 S2s as I type, smooth as butter. I just replaced CM8 S2. Huge difference. Much more open sound. More 3 dimensional midrange. Everything has been upgraded in the right direction.
I thought there was a big difference between the cm8s and cm9s but i'm not convinced that there will be a big difference between the cm9s and 703s
