I have a pair of speakers identical to my main (bookshelves) that I can use for center. Is it better to use both of them or only one (my amp can take the load)?
Also, I have a projector so my screen is the back wall and I project quite low. My main are then higher than my center if I place it under the screen. If I use these regular speakers for main, should I place one above and one below my screen? Do I place them sideways or in their normal standing position?
Thank you Kal. If I may, just another question. When you say suboptimal setup, I assume you mean that using a regular bookshelf for center is not that great. Do you have any reference describing why a real "center" speaker is better than using one identical to your main? Sorry if this as been discussed before, maybe I just didn't find the thread. Thanks again.
No. No. Using a regular speaker identical to your main speakers is, imho, ideal and superior to using a dedicated center speaker if you can place it correctly. Why? Well, you can do a better search or access my column at http://www.stereophile.com/musicintheround/ or mebbe someone else will chime in; I've had my say on this already.
