    I just picked up an infinity alpha center brand new and i really like it, but I also found a used infinity sterling series center channel.

    It's obviously an older model but looks very solid, I think the sterling speakers sold for a decent amount? Don't know where they were in infinity's lineup

    here's the specs on each.

    STERLING VIDEO - 2-Way 150 Watt Center Channel Speaker
    PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS:
    Recommended Power Amplifier Range: 20 - 150 watts/channel
    Frequency Response: 58Hz - 20kHz
    Crossover Frequency(ies): 4.5kHz
    Sensitivity: 89dB
    Nominal Impedance: Compatible with 8 ohm outputs
    Woofer: 2qty-5.5"
    Tweeter: 1qty-0.5"

    INFINITY ALPHA CENTER CHANNEL: 2-way 100 watt center channel
    20-100watts / channel
    frequency response 55hz - 22khz
    sensitivity 89db
    nom inpendance 8ohm
    woofer 2qty 5.25"
    tweeter: 1 qty- 1"




    Will i notice a difference if i say use the sterling (cost me 10 bucks) and sell the alpha for $100 or so

    Or should i just keep the alpha as it's a better speaker? and make a small profit on the sterling

    If you have them both, try them. See what you think.

    Personally, I like Vanilla ice cream.

    i have problems picking favorites. I like every flavor. I think if the old one at least sounds decent, I'd rather have the $100+ dollars [​IMG]
