This was something that I was concerned with when purchasing my speakers, and it is something I continue to be vexed by. My center channel speaker is a PSB Image 8C. It is positioned atop of my Toshiba 42H81 set, tilted slightly forward. When I was auditioning speakers, I spent much time listening to center channels. I was trying to to find a speaker that gave me the benefits of a bigger sounding speaker, without the detraction of a localized sound. Of the 6 or so center channels that I tried in my budget, the 8C was a winner. It provided clarity, musicality, and a fairly full-range sound. It also did not point to itself as much as some other speakers did (meaning that dialog in movies sounded as if it was coming from the TV, not the speaker). Over the last 2 years, I have purchased a new TV (the 42H81), and the speaker height and angle have been altered. I don't know if my hearing is better or if my focus is just better, but I believe that dialog is coming more from my speaker than I noticed in the past. It is most common on female voices. Male voices, sound effects, and music seem to come more from the TV. For whatever reason, female voices often sound as if they are coming right from the center speaker, thereby creating a disjointed feel between image and sound. Does anyone else notice this? Has anyone been able to minimize this effect? I have tried tilting the speaker up and down, but I don't know what the actual results were (placebo effect...or fear of it). What have been solutions of other people? At this time, I cannot move the center channel below the screen. It would jut out too far into the living area. Any suggestions or stories would be appreciated. Thanks.
