Hi All, I have the opportunity to pick up two Pioneer SP-C21 center speakers at a great price. Does anyone see a reason I would not be able to use them as left and right speaker in my rig? Thanks for your time. Binny

You can use any speaker you want in any location.

Thanks for the reply Sam. I guess my main concern was with having two woofers. And if it would improve low end response or diminish the high end...

Having three identical center channels upfront (1 horizontal, 2 vertical) is actually a recommended setup. This way you have identical tweeters and woofers, so you'll have the same quality of sound coming out. - Brennan, OSD Audio

If the crossover was designed to work with the speaker in a horizontal orientation, you probably want to keep them that way.

The crossover doesn't have much to do with the direction of the speaker. The tweeter is the most important factor here, and would still be operating the same. Brennan, OSD Audio

Crossovers can be optimized for horizontal or vertical dispersion of sound. http://www.stereophi...rt-three-page-7 http://forum.blu-ray...ead.php?t=89614

Interesting. What manufacturers do this? - Brennan, Outdoor Speaker Depot

Geesh, for that price they better have some optomized crossovers. Haha. - Brennan, OSD Audio
