    Im in need of advice. I just replaced my center channel after about 6 years. I cant seem to get the perception of the sound comming from the screen. With my old dcm no problem. The new Polk so far just hasnt given me that effect. I have it angled down a bit but that dosent seem to help. Any suggestions?

    No Its not. Im really not too sure how to do that. Would I use the center channel volume? Its all the way up now and I find myself turning the receiver up and back down and then up again.....

    Does it match your front soundstage?

    What kind of receiver do you have? Does it have a "Center Width" setting? I've found this setting on my Onkyo 797 has a big impact on the impact of the center speaker. I've only owned the Onkyo so I'm not sure if this is a common option or not. It may be that you can narrow it down a bit to refine your front soundstage.

    Is it specific to any DSP?
