As Sean noted above, they work very well, or as well as phantom center will work. Hudda is currently using a pair of Sparks(destined for surround duty) for
L/R in his theater while waiting his Catalysts.
The Spark works very well as a center channel, but it certainly makes sense to enjoy a pair of Sparks for a while as you are building up the system you really want over time. In fact this is something I highly encourage, as it is easy to start with 2-3 Sparks and later upgrade the LCR to Catalysts, moving the Sparks to surround duty and adding as budget and space allow.
