Full range as Center channel
 
i just got two pair of following full range

http://www.tb-speaker.com/detail/1208_03/w4-655sh.htm

how will they sound as open baffle with center channel...

i am planning to make left and right channel with same driver only thing left and right will have eminence 15 both activelly crossover around 150hz....

do i need any tweeter or woofer to work with this...

I would say they would work fine in a sealed box instead of open baffle.
Open baffle may bring many other issues you might not want to deal with.

The sealed box would help to control low frequency extension (that you don't really need for a center channel).
A side effect of that would be clearer mids and highs.

70 to 14k will be plenty for a "Center Channel" speaker....unless you plan on multi-channel music listening.

i live in nyc and any kind of woodwork makes my hand tight...i just want to be sure i can run this as center channel....

I would say that if you wanted to open baffle these you would need a pretty substantial baffle and still need something to control the bottom end.
A home theater crossover at 150hz should do the trick just as well as a small sealed enclosure.

Are you going to do any fancy finish on the baffle or just painted?

You might be able to get by with a smaller baffle by using a rear chamber on the driver.
This small SEAS chamber should do nicely for your needs.
Just a little aquarium sealant and some screws should do the trick.
This approach would at least solve the acoustic "Short Circuit" you would run into from a small open baffle since there is no back wave to deal with.
Just lightly stuff the chamber and enjoy.

can you give a sample example....like what kinda of sample baffle please it will helpa lot..

I would figure a baffle board that is based on the "Golden Ratio" (Look it Up).
Place the driver on a position on the baffle that also adheres to the Golden Ratio ( this will help to minimize high frequency diffraction.
Mount one of those chambers behind the one driver; seal it with aquarium sealant and use screws to hold it in place.
Chamfer or roundover the edges of the baffle as much as you can (a rasp works well).
Build some kind of "kick stand" for the back of the baffle to hold it up.
