Polk's RTiA3 might be a good option for your center channel speaker. It uses the same 6.5" mid driver as your towers and it's a two way design so it won't have the lobing issues that plague...

For the center channel, just get another ProMonitor 1000. It'll be a perfect match. The ProCenter 2000 has matching 5 1/4" mid drivers as the ProMonitor, but horizontally mounted Mid-Tweet-Mid...

Def Tech's ProMonitor 1000's are nice sounding speakers. Their subs aren't competitive however. The ProSub 1000's response drops like a rock below 40 Hz:

Just select "Skip" and continue with the Audyssey setup. Doing this skips the subwoofer level matching - not the EQ. It's just a warning that Audyssey wants to lower the sub's gain more than it's...

Just because your speakers are spec'ed to 40 Hz doesn't mean that's the ideal crossover point. If you'd like a little more oomph in the low end, set your crossovers to 80 Hz and increase the sub...

A ProSub 80 doesn't have significant response below 40 Hz. If you'd like to hear content below that frequency, then upgrade.
