With old ears and damaged hearing, HT dialogue clarity has been a problem for years. I've gone from TV speakers to HTiB to Elac Debut 2.0 with slight improvements at each step but I still relied on closed captions for movies. I really dug in on the research for center speakers over the past year or so plus looked at audio, hearing, room acoustics, eq, etc to see if there was any help out there. Finally, with price increases looming, I ordered an SVS Ultra 3-way center speaker. I've only had it for a few days and haven't run YPAO or played with the settings (much) but I have been a bit impressed with the improvement. The SVS is "edgier" than the Elac which is somewhat "laid back" but if the Elac is a 6-7 on dialogue the SVS is more like 8-9 which is a more significant change beyond what I expected (hoped ?). I've already reduced the cc volume relative to the L/R speakers by a couple of dBs. Also, even tho we don't listen far off-axis for HT, the 3-way SVS is also certainly clearer in adjacent rooms (1/2 wall open) than the 2-way Elac.
