Hi everyone, I have a question for the owners of HDT flat panels, I was thinking sometime now to buy a JBL LC2 for my center channel, and maybe matching them with JBL L820's for my fronts, but my need for the center channel upgrade is because I have an acoustically transparent screen with my center channel behind, but the soundstage of my actual center channel is too narrow, so when someone in a movie speaks off the center of the screen it feels not right because I feel the sound coming from the exact center of the screen only.
How good is the horizontal wideness of the soundstage from the Flat Panels? I was thinking on buying a HTD Flat Panel for LCR because the design of the HDT with 2.5" FCD cone drivers for the high-mid frequencies at sides of the tweeter seems not have a lobing problem and maybe a wider soundstage for a center channel because of that design, the JBL LC2 have the tweeters and med in vertical way so I'm concerned about the same problem I have now with my actual center channel.
I didn't hear the LC2 yet, and everyone in every forum I read that owns a HTD speakers says they are wonderful for the price, even here in the AVS Forum HTD owners thread, but the price is not a problem as the location of the sound from voices in my decision, but for the price of the JBL LC2 only I almost can buy 3 flat panels from HTD and that would be good too.
I was thinking three flat panels behind the screen with the center horizontally oriented to spread a wider sound.
My room dimensions are very little 10x12x9 but when I arrive at home after a long business trip I'm expecting to make heavy acoustic treatment to my home theater room from RealTraps, real heavy I hope, but anyway I think maybe the LC2 and L820's would be too overwhelming to my little room. I have an Onkyo TX-NR3009 to power them.
Thank you in advance for your responses.
