What sub would you recommend to go with them?
What Center channel speaker?
Thanks in advance
Two questions gets you many more back!
How big is the room?
How far from the speakers do you sit to listen?
Are you in a single-family home where shaking the floors and walls with deep Low Frequency Effects (LFE) of movies is going to be ok, or even desired?
What's the budget for each?
The best center speaker would likely be a single LS50. They are available from many sources. They can be laid down on their side with no change in sound other than it might need to be tipped-up so all 3 tweeters (L-C-R) are pointing at the same plane. Other KEF center speakers work pretty good too, the R series in particular.
Subwoofers can be small, pretty, large, and ugly. How they perform can be all over the map too. How important is looks? How deep would you want it to go?
