    Rear- Infinity IL50
    Sub- Infinity IL120s
    Center- Infinity- IL25c
    Per- Proceed PAV/PDSD
    Amp- Harman 2.1 signature

    I have a brand new Infinity Beta 40 speaker lying around. Can I use it as a center instead of IL25c(which is kinda small).
    Do the regular speakers work good as center speakers.
    Thanks

    Girish,

    The front speakers, including the center, are indeed "regular" speakers. No harm to try that one, to see if you like it better.

    Regular speakers for a center will work just fine. You can experiment with how you place it; laying down sideways or standing up if you have the space. If it's on the floor you may want to raise it about 10 degrees. You can use small rubber door stops or small wood blocks.

    Currently I have the center channel placed on a wooden shelf behind the TV on the wall. I am thinking of laying the Beta40 sideways on the same shelf.

    you might not want to do that for timbre match and have the same series of speakers in that brand all the way around, but that is up to you.
