    Happy New Year!

    I have a large center channel (Def Tech CLR2000) and cannot help but to think that it suffers a bit with male dialog sequences. What are some tips on center channel placement to get the most out of them? Below or on top of a rptv? Vertical or horizontal? Opinions wanted please.

    Keith H,

    1) Does your receiver have a built-in 'center channel'

    graphic equalizer? If not, correction may be very difficult.

    2) Does your receiver have separate, 'low level' outputs for each primary channel, in addition to its .1 sub output.

    3) I assume you have adjusted the 'center channel delay'.

    I spent last weekend taking care of a 'center channel'

    dialog problem with my HT set-up. My solution, although

    not popular, works very well.

    I would recommend that you experiment as much as possible...if it is on a rptv, make sure that it is placed as far forward as possible...with a slight overhang over the front end of the tv. Also make sure to angle the center downwards towards the listening position. But then again...if you have the space, you could try to place the center channel vertically. Good luck!
