Center Channel Yamaha NS-C225, suggestions
I am running a 5.1 system in my living room (small, like ..15x15). The TV sits up in the corner of room pointing out diagonal (I will add pictures and drawings if needed). My center speaker literally sits on the TV Stand (that came with TV). Imagine a 50" hole in the wall .. TV sits in the hole, center speaker on the TV Stand.
The Center speaker is the Yamaha NS-C225, i have had for many years now (>15 years is a guess). My LF/RF speakers are SVS Ultra Bookshelfs, and the two surrounds are also SVS (not bookshelves). My Sub is also a SVS sub.
My concern is that most of the sound for HT comes through the Center channel, which I run slightly hotter to hear the dialogue.
Possible Options (feel free to add others)
1.) dump the center, buy the prime or ultra center and move it to the side of the TV where there is more room. Its not directly center (the sound) though.
2.) dump the center, and run a 4.1 setup
3.) Buy a new center that is roughly the same height and dimensions replacing the NS-C225.
4.) Leave well enough alone, and buy the wife a nice vacation
5.) Remodal that area so it can better fit a proper center channel setup with TV.
I do not run a loud setup, I live in a townhome. Wife does not like option 5. She would prefer Option 6.) Save your money and do nothing.
Any thoughts on the speaker and possible changes (if any)? If pics are needed, will have to wait till I get home and make some drawings
