Summary: WOW! I had an older center channel speaker that would not fit in my new stand. (A Jenson from years ago) It was a great speaker , had 2 mids and a center high all in one center channel . I had borrowed a small center channel until I could get a replacement and it was horrible . Sounded like everything was muffled. (Harmon) With this Yamaha everything sounds crystal clear! LOVE IT!
Summary: After installing a larger TV, I needed a smaller center channel to replace the larger one I had below the TV. I was worried that the smaller size would impact the audio quality compared to my previous center channel speaker, but this little unit did not fail to please! Great audio response in a surprisingly small size. The pre-installed mounting brackets also made installation quick.
Summary: I was looking to add a center channel speaker to my home theater. I wanted it to be around $100, and it needed to be as small as possible as I didn't have a dedicated spot for it on my entertainment center, so I had to set it right in front of my TV (think of it as a speaker mounted to the bottom of your TV). My TV sits on a regular "base", so there is only about 4" between the surface of the entertainment center and the bottom of the TV picture.
Summary: After doing a lot of research and looking at the construction of the various speakers, as well as my size requirements, I decided this was the speaker to get for my center channel. We all know that the center channel is the most important speaker since it will basically provide us with the voices in movies and direct-on sound effects. You don't want to go cheap on the center speaker. I've been using this speaker now for months and love it, love it, love it.
Summary: Speaker produces clean, clear sound. This is critical for a center channel speaker. Dialogue is very clear and easy to understand. Nice low profile. One issue, the product is described as black which is correct for the speaker body. I would describe the grille as dark gray.
