Horn center channel ideas

I am looking to build a center channel to go with my main's. The speakers I am currently using are basically some HTM-12 clones that I built and I can not run a vertical center due to space constraints. I would like to have at least a dual 10" drivers in the center. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe it's too obvious, but the 88 Special is a pretty good team player with the HTM-12s as a center. See my room photos.

Do you have crossover design skills? Do you want a kit or are you capable of a custom design?

As long as I have something to go by as far as the crossover goes then yes.. I am not apposed to using a kit but even the 88 wont fit in the area that I would like to use. I basically have enough room for a basic MTM center. I do however have about 55" in length to work with. I may just end up using something like the fusion series centers.

I have a Fusion 8 center, under my TV, in my living room.It's a great center channel, probably as good as almost any factory built center you can buy,at a fraction of the price.

However,If I had the room,I would have built a 1099 or 88 special.
