Matching a center speaker to vintage speakers is usually pretty difficult. Some people have used a single bookshelf from the same brand and era. Some try and find one with similar tweeters/mid-ranges (soft dome, metal, ribbon, etc). I couldn't find out much about those. What receiver do you have? If it includes some sort of room correction it might help tailor the sound.
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.
"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
Also have MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.
