I am interested in Wharfdale 9.2's for a surround setup. I have not had good luck finding a set. I have found a good deal on 9.CM's. I could pick up 5 for a good deal.
Would 5 center channels work for a 5.1 setup? Is there something inherently different in a center channel that would result in poor results for LR and surrounds? The frequency response is different, but it still goes down to 70Hz, and I would probably crossover with my sub around 80Hz.
In lots of cases people use an extra LR speaker as a center, but I have not read about using centers all the way around.
This may be a dumb idea, and if it is let me know. You won't offend me. Just tell me why it is a bad idea.
