Summary: I purchased the Yamaha NS-C310BL center speaker to complement my home theater. My cheap Sony center speaker that I inherited from an all-in-one system just wasn't delivering the vocals once I upgraded my other components.
Summary: This speaker does the job. I bought it on 4 merits: size, impedance, price, and customer ratings. So far, it has been a good choice. The speaker is small enough to sit in front of my TV without obscuring the screen, and it's clear enough to be heard in loud action scenes (it's actually much louder...
Summary: The stated frequency response (90 Hz to 45 KHz) is NOT at the standard -3dB, but at -10dB. This is clarified only in the manual (photo attached). Now this is a sealed speaker, and the natural roll-off of a sealed speaker is 12dBb/octave. Therefore, optimistically, the lower cutoff is 135 Hz at -3dB.
Summary: Just hooked this little bad boy up! I am not going into a long song a dance as most do on these reviews. This speaker is small,fit my space perfectly(needed under 5 inch tall),sounds amazing! I have gone through 3 speakers setting up my system with no luck on a quality center until now.
Summary: Beautiful wood center channel wear you don't worry about understanding speak of characters on screen. If you have which i'm pretty sure now most people have the thin flat TV this center channel fits right dead center of the TV and does not block screen at all.

Summary: The bottom facing speakers in flat screen TVs seem designed to sell aftermarket speakers. Poor TV speakers combined with the shape of our living room and our age all make dialogue hard to understand.
Summary: This speaker solved my problem of not clearly hearing the spoken word on some programs. Very good vocal clarity. Very good handling of loud transients, such as in action movies. Very good value for the price. A bit smaller than many center-channel speakers (17-5/16" W x 3-11/16" H x 4-15/16" D).
Summary: We have wall speakers and a subwoofer, but without a center channel conversations were lost. Now I can tune the amp to bring the voices forward as much as I want, and it improves the experience.
Summary: I was looking for a center speaker with sharper highs than what I was getting on my Infinity Primus c25. I purchased this unit because it was highly rated and it had a low height that would fit in front my TV and prevent me from buying a new TV stand.
Summary: I had looked through about a dozen websites gathering reviews on center speakers which, as you know, is not easy to find. There were several contenders for best center speaker, but each time I read reviews on the Yamaha NS-C310, they consistently spoke of the sound quality and clarity.
