The CM Centre 2 would be a fine choice as well. The regular CM Centre, not so much. A horizontal MTM is one of the worst possible configurations for horizontal dispersion, it will only perform well within a limited window. Aperion doesnt list the crossover frequencies so it's harder to comment on. Polk and B&W both have fairly low woofer to mid crossovers, that means the lobbing issues from the horizontal woofers are pushed down low enough to not be an issue, and they...
Going with 3 WtmW centers might be a good solution http://www.amazon.com/Polk-Audio-Center-Channel-Speaker/dp/B0062PAWGY http://www.aperionaudio.com/speakers/verus-home-theater-speakers/verus-grand-center-channel-speaker
The 3 ft3 flat packs really aren't really an optimal volume for the UM honestly. They aren't bad by any means, and of course they're very convenient/well built. With 3.5 ft3 your power handling vs xmax doesn't even drop off until below 10hz, so it isn't an issue, and you gain a db at 20hz.
Your cabinet dimensions give you 3.81 ft3, that doesn't account for bracing and woofer displacement. You'll likely end up around 3.5 ft3. Stuffing with heavy fill will also help lower Q.
Sure but that doesn't automatically make them the best choice, especially with the budget.
Honestly not that surprising, I have to deal with the same kind of BS living in AK. All is not lost.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001UJGUQS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DERSame box size and power level as the planned HF build. The JBL is rated 14.5 mm xmax, pretty good deal for $117.
Well alright then, that is an awesome deal!
I'm curious why you think you need a pair of $500 woofers to run mid bass for some Sierra 1's? Something like this will easily cover up to 200hz and still completely surpass the capability of most any speakers, let alone a 5.25" 2 way http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=290-420 With 400 watts, right at xmax. A pair of 4" x 9.25" ports would work
Not really feasible. There has literally been 1000s of different decent quality speaker models made over the decades....
Given the lack of speaker setup knowledge, and specified needs, here's what I would go for 2ea of these very large/loud speakers http://www.amazon.com/Behringer-Professional-2000-Watt-Titanium-Diaphragm-Compression/dp/B0029RRGRC/ref=sr_1_8?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1375417662&sr=1-8&keywords=behringer+speakers Very basic power amp with solid power, and EASY wireless connectivity to your...
