    Here's my problem. I have the 600 series b&w's all around and very much so enjoy the sound but I think that the center channel is blown. What I am looking for is possibly building a center that will match the existing speakers (maybe even using the same crossover) but being a bit bigger with the ability to handle more power (have a bigger presence). Does that make sense? Does it sound possible? Any hints or tips? Thanks for your help.

    I believe B&W makes their own drivers.

    This would make it difficult to match exactly. However, the good news is that B&W are pretty neutral and if anything have 'tight' bass. So provided you try to match up a DIY speaker with the same type of criteria you might be in good shape.

    My choice for DIY speakers would be Adire Kit 81s, but YMMV.
