Serious Performance in Home Theater Speakers & Surround Sound Systems |

Home Thetaer Speaker Basics
When choosing speakers for home cinema the demand for, and placement of speakers differ depending on whether they will be used for a Dolby Pro Logic surround sound system or a digital soundtrack such as Dolby Digital or DTS (Digital Theater System). 

Center Speaker
The center channel speaker is probably the most important speaker in a home theater system. It must reproduce vocals and sound effects clearly and with high fidelity. It must also be timbre matched with the other speaker products in the system. A center speaker is usually placed centered, above or below the visual device.

Front speakers
When choosing front speakers, it is extremely important to use voice matched drivers in order to achieve identical sound characteristics from all speakers. The same type of drivers in all five speakers gives you a seamless experience when the sound is panned across the soundstage. Having timbre matched front speakers guarantees a balanced and natural sound from the front of the room. The fact that the center channel speaker is not equipped with the same bass drivers is not important since the bass information is directed to your left and right front speakers or to the subwoofer.
