Vertical vs Horizontal Center Channel Speaker Designs – An Alternate Perspective:
Below are some useful guidelines to consider when choosing a center channel speaker:
• Choose a center channel that has similar output capabilities and sensitivity as your main channels.
• It’s usually a good idea to choose a speaker from the manufacturers same product line of your main channels to ensure similar drivers and tonal characteristics “voicing”.
• Consider a horizontally mounted MTM design if you have a height restriction and your primary seats are in a +/- 30 degree listening window or less.
• Consider 3 matching vertical MTM designs for the front 3 speakers if you can place the center channel behind a perforated screen.
• Consider W(T/M)W design if your listening window exceeds the +/- 30 degree and you are height constrained to not use identically matched speakers to your mains.
• Bottom line, chose what sounds best for your application that tonally matches your main speakers as closely as possible.
• Don’t forget to calibrate all of the channels using the internal pink noise generator (aka. Test tones) of your A/V receiver / processor.
