Do I want a 6ohm cheaper 5 series center or a 225C right now for more, or wait for a 235C to become available?
The 225C has a 4" driver and the 235C a 6.5" driver. If you watch a lot of movies, then you know that vocals and sounds, on screen, will come through the center. The 235C will make a big difference for movies. On the other hand, music mostly comes through the LF and RF, so the difference may not be so noticeable. This is all subjective as to what your ears hear and what makes you happy.
However, I will repeat what I said previously, don't buy a cheaper speaker just to replace it in the future because it just didn't do the job.
