I have something similar only use for surrounds, get a Yamaha monitor as center or a 3 way center channel.Hello,
I have turned my garage into a mancave. Carpeted, couches, basically turned it into a 2nd living room.
This is what my current setup is:
Yamaha HS8 Fronts
Yamaha HS5 Rears
Big fan of Yamaha Natural Sound, speakers, amps, etc.
I mainly listen to music, however I will be adding a TV for football and the occasional movie night.
I am using balanced XLR connections for the speakers.
I need a good center channel speaker recommendation to go 5.1 and possibly 7.1 in the future.
I was thinking of using a Klipsch Icon VS-14 speaker that I have, it is a budget curved rounded center channel, however considering that I have high quality Yamaha monitors, I figured it may be a good idea to get something to match quality wise.
What do you guys recommend? I would prefer something with a balanced connection that is monitor quality, and I really love that Yamaha Natural Sound.
It is acceptable to advise me to not go with a center channel, just use the Klipsch, or maybe recommend something out of left field. I have nowhere near the years of audiophile experience as you guys, so let me know what you think?
I really appreciate your guidance.

Even a cheap 2 way center beats those Klipch.. but they would be good for 7ch surround back or sides .

Unfortunately onlyYamaha will sound like Yamahas. Although lots of people had success mixing center channel brands with fronts , 8” woofer is good sized .
