What are the disadvantages/adavantages of centre apeakers with MTM(midrange/tweeter/midrange)layuot against normal bookself speakers used as centre speakers?
Read somewhere that movies are mixed in studios with 5 indentical speakers, doesn't that make horizontal speakers redundant.

Ryan: if you used a bookshelf as a center speaker in the usual vertical position and could place it at the same level as your front speaker drivers, then the D'Appolito drivers would not be necessary. Most center channels are made to lie horizontally on top of the monitor though, and the D'appolito drivers provide the best dispersion characteristics and imaging, and provide a better sweet spot than a horizontal speaker with the tweeter on the left(or right) and the woofer on the right(or left).
