    a TRUE centerpiece...
    what you see is what you get.

    center speaker. designed to do exactly that. vocals and audio are super crispy. when teamed with a 5.1 system, this little guy will project clear vocals while your other monoprice speakers will do the surround (get the 6 and 8in, sweet deal). ive been shopping on this site since april and have bought everything. great quality. totally.

    PROS: ready to go out of the box.

    CONS: none, just hope for a 5-15 year shelf life on this unit.

    This is a real upgrade for my system
    I bought this to replace a center speaker from a Mirage 6 speaker system purchased about 10 years ago. I had tried several including the much hyped Bose and like the Mirage best. After five years the center speaker went bad and I replaced it with a KLH from Best Buy. The sound was never good, especially with live music TV programs. The vocals were always anemic. When Monoprice came out with this baby I jumped on it and now the sound is back to the great original. I'm so impressed I'm buying a spare before this deal vanishes.

    PROS: Great sound, easy to install, great price

    CONS: none

    Great little speaker for the price
    I recently replaced my HDTV with a new LED LCD. I was using the TV speakers for my center channel as the old TV supported connecting them to an external source, my receiver in this case. The new TV didn't have the feature so I need to add a new center speaker to my mix. Going from the TV speakers to this speaker was a significant improvement but that shouldn't have been surprising. I don't think this speaker competes with high-priced speaker systems, but for the price, you can't beat it. It produces plenty of high-quality volume in my little living room. I'm very happy!

    Great Wtih One Caveat
    This is a great speaker for a good price. However, did not fit the banana plugs I had. I'm sure I could have got new smaller ones, just would have been nice had it fit more universally.

    PROS: - Cheap

    - Sounds Great

    CONS: - Doesn't fit the banana plugs I have

    Center Chanel Success
    I have been looking for a Center Chanel for my home theater system for sometime, and have seen very expensive solutions available. While I needed a solution, it did not seem like a large investment made since. A friend of mine recently told me he installed MonoPrice speakers in his house and was pleased with the outcome. I made the purchase of this speaker and have been very satisfied. I will recommend MonoPrice to others in the future.

    PROS: Excellent Pricing
    Sound quality good

    CONS: Unknown
