what is missing from this conversation is driver layout and/or type of driver... ultimately, what works/sounds best to your ears, only you can tell. most traditional center are a MTM (horizontal ) layout. many of the higher end centers use a Wt/mW ( where the tweeter is above the mid-range). some are a standard tweeter over woofer laid on it side.
other: Co Axial ( highly regarded for off axis response)
other considerations: woofer size , ported v sealed, aesthetic and space considerations I would try to get a larger woofer v 4" or smaller.
there many quality speakers in all designs, many in your price range -
MTM : Ascend acoustics cmt 340 SE, RSL CG23, or the new CG 25
wt/mw : emotiva C1 ( C2 is currently unavailable)
coaxial: Hsu research CCB-8 or from accessories4less there are many MTMs, as well as KEF600
standard laid on its side: ascend acoustics cbm 170
hope it helps
