    The Infinity Primus center. Or any other Infinity(outside emit) center from the last 15 year's.

    Try and find a good Beta C250 (+/-$75) or C360 ($150-$200) on craigslist or ebay. I have both around here somewhere. The 360 is worth the extra cost but the 250 is pretty decent as well. The 360 is a pretty large center speaker and is much more difficult to find. The primus C351 would be a good choice if you want something new.
