Short but wide center channel, advice needed
I've been running a full SVS system with Prime Bookshelves, Center and Satellites and am pretty happy with it. Now black friday is coming, so I'm starting to seriously consider upgrading my 65" LG OLED screen to a bigger diagonal, something in a 77 inch range. This is where I run into space constraints issue.
Right now my Prime center is sitting on a shelf right above my display. Since the distance from the screen to LP is not too great (around 185cm), this is the highest possible position for my center to be in, so I can angle it down correctly to point to a said LP. Now, the 77 inch OLED is taller than my 65 inch. It is in fact so tall, that it will almost completely block my center channel. The right thing to do would be to just put the center channel down, but Prime Center is so tall, that it will block a great portion of my TV and I have no way of putting it below the TV, there is no compartment for it there and I can't replace the rack my TV is sitting on, since it's also doubles as a storage space for a lot of stuff.
This is where I've started to think about short but wide center channels. Polk S35e caught my eye, being the right height, but I'm afraid that since it's almost half the cost of SVS Prime Center the sound quality can be inferior. Has anyone had a chance to compare these two?
And as a more general questions - are there any other short but wide center channels that you can recommend for my system (there is a full component description in a signature)? I know Klipsch has a few, but which one would be better?
I've attached a photo of my front setup, so you can better understand what's going on there
