Center Channel match for Paradigm Atom v5
 
I have a very constrained problem to solve b/c of imposed furniture :(

I have 2 Paradigm Atom v5 speakers plus a BW CC6 and a BW Sub

I like the paradigms enough, but their tone is different than the center channel. At times it bothers me at movies.

What would be a suitable center channel to match the tone of paradigms which must fit in 6 1/8" height?


I can consider replacing paradigms with some BWs, but then the bookshelf height must be below 12 1/2"


Thanks!

The RSL CG23 is a good neutral speaker which should blend well with the paradigms and fit your space. Monitor Audio Radius 200 (or 225) will fit, and tends towards a more aggressive stance, which might be sympatico with your paradigms, but for significantly more $ than the RSL. Rear port may be problematic, depending on your set-up. The Monitor Audio A40 has front ports and is very WAF friendly. Probably the best of the group, but for more $ still. If you like it, you could always go for the A10s at a later date to have a seamless front stage.

Are you getting decent voice clarity out of the CC6? If you're 100% satisfied with it, I'd move the Atoms to surround duty and get FL/FR speakers with at least 5.25" woofers, especially if music is a significant % of your usage.

If not, the aforementioned RSL CG23 would be worth a try.
