How are we gonna help you decide something only you can hear?!

The obvious answer would be to use the one that matches your main speakers for voice matching...

*Edit: Is that a port or a tweeter on the right in between the 2 drivers?

Sony are duel ported a mini subwoofer on bottom and a mid woofer on top plus tweeter so 3 way go down to 30 hertz or lower .
They are hard for this weak stereo to power actually. I think they work but not as good as typical 3wAy
Both speaker are ported I could try the matching rca to see how they sound then the Sony separately .
It’s a tweeter the ports are on the side .

Duh! He needs to post a YouTube video!!!

Btw poges, I found a new sub. For my laptop...lmoa
We’re or how did you get a sub so cheap ?

I don’t think recording how they both sound will make a big difference. I’d have to turn the subwoofer off .
Should I try and video it. ?

Either all these speaker just suck or the receiver is sub par . Probably both but I cannot put my bigger speakers here or my mom will cry . My cheap klipsch are better then this but I cannot afford a center channel . Best bet is to Stick to the Sony. Probably until I find a job .
I got nice bass though .. and added a rca slim sub plenty bass but not powerfull.
It’s a baby sub haha

10 bucks? I’d say why not. But that’s me. Without a job, you might wanna save your money. Maybe put together a system on paper that meats reasonable goals, and budget constraints. Then once you’re gainfully employed, make it happen. Even if it’s one piece at a time. Believe it or not, 10 bucks here and there can really add up. That means saving OR spending 10 bucks at a time.

yeah by what are odds of getting another center of this model again for so cheap ?
Might still be able to buy a pair of shoes if I buy this speaker
Is it any improvement on my current center?? Still same brand


I can afford $10 think I’ll see matching fronts for sale ever ?

Yeah if it’s significantly enough better then a bookshelf speaker for a center worth it . If not then no
Gotten decide soon before it’s gone .

I probably spend enough time watching tv while looking for a job for it to be worth it , but is it really a big upgrade on my center ?

Not pulled the trigger on the center with yellow woofers yet .

I don't think anyone here is really familiar with either of those speakers, so if you want it you're going to have to jump in blind.

Yeah NIN is right. I don’t know either of those particular speakers. But if I had to choose, I would think the “center” type speaker would have overall better performance. For 10 bucks why not find out.

Yeah probably a good deal for something that size , and my bookshelves are lacking for a Center .

Definitely sounds better , but I need to rise the center higher . I don’t think it’s a title power hungry or too low . It’s not big enough to set the tv on .
Should I try removing the grill? Or just crank up the volume a little higher it takes more power .

Well at least level match it. All channels should be level matched anyway. Have you run Audyssey? Is this the system with the 818?

Gotta raise it or make a riser to turn it at an angle yeah it’s level Matched pretty well it’s just lower decibels I think takes more power.
No my onkyo is running 5 klipsch speakers 2 Andrew Jones towers and its too big to fit here .
This is my old Sony receiver which is just temporary until I can afford something better . Like a true 5-7 ch receiver, wonder why pro logic one only had mono rear channel ?
It’s a powerful enough receiver to power this center .
I turned the center up high enough to wish I had a riser built to put the sub under . And tv could sit directly ontop .
Probably needs to be online with fronts , it’s too low .

I mean did you level match it with an spl meter. When you say “matched pretty well”, that makes me think it was done by ear.
