Center channel using TB


2005-01-28 9:46 pm
I'd like to build an inexpensive center channel and thought I could do that with TB full ranges. I was wondering if anyone has tried this and if so with what kind of results?
Would it be better to use multiple drivers and if so how many?

My only goal is to increase the enjoyment of movies by making the dialog more audible. I currently only have stereo and the dialog from DVDs is often difficult to understand without turning it up real loud. So my theory was a center channel on which I can turn up the volume. somehow in the back of my mind something tells me it won't solve my problem so let me know what you guys think.

P.S. I just finished my first DIY speakers, but I'm too stupid to post a pic.
I'm made temporary center channels using TB and Hi-Vi wide ranges.

One problem with these TB widerange speakers is the efficiency, its very low. If I wanted a wide range center channel from TB I'd order one of the new Titanium TB speakers, they do cost in the $30 range, but their are about 88-89db efficient at 1w/1m.

I'd say a single driver because of this article
