I have a question about timbre matching JBL speakers. Currently, I have S312IIs and a S Center II up front with S36IIs for sides and rears. All of these speakers are from the same line and matched. If I upgraded to the performance series PC600 Center, would the timbre still match? Reading the specs of the speakers, they seems to use a lot of key words in them that make me think they would blend ok with each other. let me know if you guys have heard the difference between the old Studio line and the Performance line and if you think it would work.
This 3-way, dual 6-inch center speaker reproduces sound with incredible power, while preserving the clarity and detail of the original recording.
Pure-titanium, high-frequency-transducer domes with neodymium magnet structures are ultralight to accurately reproduce lightning-fast sounds like cymbal crashes, yet extremely rigid to eliminate distortion and ear fatigue in the transition between the midrange and high-frequency bands.
Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal™ (EOS) waveguides were first developed for our JBL Professional LSR studio monitors. They enable Performance Series speakers to evenly disperse high frequencies and create precise stereo imaging over a wide listening area.
Pure-titanium, inverted dome midrange transducers seamlessly blend with the titanium dome tweeters by offering nearly perfect pistonic motion that eliminates uncontrollable flexing found in conventional cones. The inverted dome is driven precisely at its center, which cancels resonances inherent in cone materials. The result is ruler-flat frequency response well beyond the crossover point.
Titanium-alloy, inverted dome low-frequency transducers deliver precise, undistorted bass reproduction that matches the titanium tweeters and midranges. The powerful neodymium magnet provides its own video-shielding, allowing flexible placement, even near video monitors. Cast-aluminum frames remain rigid even at the highest volumes, avoiding distortion found in some other speaker designs. And aluminum doesn't affect the magnetic flux, so that driver movement is precise and unmuddied.
S Center II description:
The amazing 3-way S-Center ii brings dialogue and sound effects to life with outstanding clarity and realism, thanks to pro-style JBL technology! A 1" titanium tweeter and 4" PolyPlas midrange are mounted on an LFP (Linear Field Proximity) bezel for precise localization — on-screen sounds are firmly anchored in place. Two 5-1/2" PolyPlas woofers and rear-firing ports provide ample sonic depth. The molded poly cabinet, with graceful curves and dark gray finish, looks right at home on top of your TV
