    I have the Infinity HTS-20 Speaker System and I was thinking of replacing the center speaker. I now that the front speakers need to be timbre matched, so I wanted to get some opinions on a which Infinity center speaker to match the satellites. Of the Entra and Interlude series center speakers, which would be a better match with the satellites???

    Here are the specs on the satellites and the center speaker of the HTS-20 system:

    If you can it is best to go with three identical speakers in the front soundfield. Believe me it makes for a very impressive seamless soundfield. "Timber matched" is marketspeak.
