I have recently done some upgrades and now am down to speakers. I have a Denon AVR-790 running 5.1, and currently use 4 Minimus 7s at the corners, a 12" passive Realistic sub with a Marantz MA500U power amp. The room is 15 X 20 and current setup is adequate except for the center. It is a Radio Shack 2-way that has very poor clarity and is headed for the dumpster. I have been reading posts about matching speakers, frequency, harmonics, etc. I would like to get a good quality center channel, less than $ 250 if possible, that I can build out as $ are available unless the consensus is that "mix and match" is OK with this current setup. In that case I would appreciate a center recommendation in this price range. If not, what would be a good starting point in this price range that would let me finish the four corners for $200 or so each. All design suggestions are appreciated as I can use the existing speakers elsewhere. Rest of system includes new BluRay, Panasonic Plasma & Xbox360 (why there's not much left!).
