Replace center channel. JBL NSPII set

Had this set since 2002 with a JB10 sub. It all still sounds great. Used for TV and movies. So my wife talked me into all new furniture and the center speaker is just too big. Have a 6” high opening. Can I use like the Sony Core 4” center and still be happy? Maybe use this as a stepping stone to replace all? I hate making this change but sometimes the wife wins. I really appreciate all responses.

The previously mentioned RSL center will be leaps and bounds better than both the Core center and your JBL center. Plus you get free return shipping just in case.

~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)

Reviewing the RSL Center, looks like a great choice if it will fit. I have yet to get the new furniture so need to verify it is a true 6" opening height. Is this speaker a true 6" height? Is this works, I will add two RSL book shelf speakers and use my current JBL as the surrounds for now. Then go from there. Thanks for the replies.
Note: The RSL outlet has some blemished speakers at a discount so looks like a place to start.
