This would be a perfect opportunity to upgrade all 3 front speakers, since the CS2/8/10/20 is one of the most commonly complained about center speakers on this forum.Hi guys, first time poster. I currently have this setup:
2x Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II
Polk Audio CS2 Series II Center
2x JBL surrounds (not sure model)
Sony 10" subwoofer
Onkyo TX-NR509 5.1
Unfortunately, I need to do away with the floor standing Monitor 60s and am looking to replace them with some smaller bookshelf speakers without sacrificing overall sound quality. I'm currently considering getting a pair of Klipsch 500Ms but have no idea if they'd mesh well with the CS2 center. Should I consider upgrading the center as well to say a Klipsch 404c or 600c, and have all 3 fronts brand matched? Should I look for an even higher end set of bookshelf speakers to compensate? Basically, I'm looking for an equal or better solution here.
Lastly, I should add the room is midsized, and I rarely push the system hard, so I'm not looking for something that can handle constantly being cranked up to 11 and still sound good. Mostly used for movies.
Thanks, in advance. Cheers!
What is your budget max for this upgrade? We need a ballpark number to make specific product suggestions.
I'd also upgrade your sub unless you seldom watch blockbuster action/thriller movies.
