    Need advice. Dialogue indistinct with current Boston Acoustic Center speaker 424v. Need to replace it. Currently I have 2 Front Infinity Beta 40 Speakers. Any suggestions for a compatible Center speaker ?
    Here are the Infinity Beta 40 Specs: Driver configuration 3-way. Woofer size (inches) 5.0 in, 1.0 in, 8.0 in Response bandwidth 35 - 20000 Hz Input impedance 8.0 Ohm;
    Crossover Frequency •600 Hz, 3.2kHz; 24 dB/Octave 45Hz to 20kHz (+/- 3 dB), 40Hz to 40kHz (-6dB) Frequency
    Suggestions would be appreciated.

    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.
