It is my understanding that the best place for the center channel speaker is right behind a micro perforated screen. The second best place is above the screen and the worst place is below the screen.


Has anyone tried using 2 center channel speakers, ie. one below the screen and one above the screen. I would think that this would simulate 1 speaker in the middle of the screen and eliminate the need for a perforated screen.



Am I out to lunch?


Please comment.


Thanks

This topic has been beaten to death in the past. The use of two centre channel speakers would result in severe lobing effects and severe frequency peaks and dips that would not be subtle. Steer clear of this option.

Don't do it, for a plethora of reasons. The only plus is you pick up 3 dB of output. Everything else is bad.

I tried searching using many different keyword combinations as I expected that this topic would have been discussed in depth in the past. I was not successful in finding it.


Thanks to everyone that responded and back to the drawing board!

Warren,

Bite the bullet and sell the dog, your body, or do whatever it takes and get a Stewart microperforated screen. You will not be disappointed.
