RSL CG23 vs Chane
What do you think about using the RSL CG23s as a RCL in a large open living room. The area opens up to the second floor so its more of a large open area, more than a room. I would estimate around 7000 cu. ft. We sit about 12 feet away. Upgrading from Elac B5/C5 as they are a bit too big for what we trying to do and I wouldn't mind getting a center with more clear dialog. There are some waf limitations as this is a living room set up/ multiuse space.
Is lobing an issue with the MTM design? I want people in the different seats of the living room to be able to hear dialog. Bass response will be handled by a SVS SB-3000. I know a larger ported subwoofer would be better for the cost but having the smallest subwoofer possible was done for WAF. The CG23 is apealing to me for its small width (when standing up straight) since they are going to be placed on a TV stand. Cant go bigger than 7.4 inches wide per speaker for L and R in order to fit them on either side of the TV on the stands we are looking at. I also really like the piano gloss finish. Do these fill up a room?
The free in home trial is really appealing.
I am also considering the using Chane for my front stage. I hve heard really good things about them. Also considering Kef Q150 (worried about audible distortion at high volumes for the large space), NHT C1 and the Aperion Intimus B5.
