    I put Klipsch RF-3's with PSB Alpha Center Channel?

    I had bought the PSB Alpha already and was thinking of buying the PSB Image 2B's but when I listened to the Klipsch I fell in love with it. Would it be so horrible to mix and match these two? I really don't want to waste my PSB CC.

    Ryan - I'm not familiar enough with the PSB to say this for sure, but just looking at it on their site would lead me to say no, this would not be a good match for the long haul with the Klipsch's. There will be a difference in sound for many reasons, but especially because of the horn loaded Klipsch and the cone-loaded (?) PSB. I think you would not achieve the front soundstage you are looking for.

    If you love the Klipsch sound, I'd go for those as your mains and sell the PSB for a Klipsch RC-3 center.

    I echo what doug said, PSB has a much more laid back sound and Klipsch, well....they don't. I would get something that matches better, like say a Klipsch center channel.
