Hi audio gurus!

I want to update my center channel speaker and stuck between a couple of them:

Polk Audio CS20 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-107-_-Product


Polk Audio CS2 Series II - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-212-_-Product


Klipsch RC-62 II - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-064-_-Product

Below are the main technical specs like Frequency Response & Sensitivity for all of them:

Polk CS20: 48Hz-25kHz & 91dB

Polk CS2: 50Hz-25kHz & 90db

Klipsch RC-62 II: 57Hz-24KHz & 98dB


I have YAMAHA RX-V765 7.2-Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882115197


What is the best center channel from these 3 speakers? Is 98dB sensitivity of Klipsch really important? Klipsch is also 3-4 times more expensive then Polk. Is the price dirrefence really audible?

Or you can advise me another center channel speaker up to $500?

Thanks a lot in advance.

The best center is the one that matches the other two speakers you have up front! What make/model are your front speakers.


If you have Polk Monitor speakers get the CS2.


If you have Polk TSi speakers get the CS20


If you have Klispch reference speakers get the RC-62.


don't mix and match the front speaker brands. Try to get the same speaker line across the front stage.


Its really that simple.

Unfortunately my front speakers are Mertin Logan Aerius i. The best match gonna be ML Motif but I can't afford it right now ($1600). I have a cheap Infinity as my center channel right now and I can't complain a lot - it does match really well with my Martin Logans. So I just want a cheap upgrade of a center channel speaker and don't sacrifice my leg and my arm for it.
