    What are the advantages or disadvantages of Center speakers that are 87dB, 91dB, or 93dB.

    Should that make a difference in sound clarity?

    I have an 80watt per channel amp 6.1.

    The efficiency of a loudspeaker has nothing to do with the way a speaker sounds. It is simply a measure of how loud it will play with a 1 watt input and a test signal.

    In general, the better loudspeakers tend to fall into the same efficiency range, but so do some truly dreadful speakers.

    The best center channel speaker is the one that is identical to your front speakers. The second best center channel speaker is one that is designed to match your front speakers.
