Great center channel
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I replaced an Infinity CC-2 center channel speaker with this one and I am amazed at what I was missing. The soundstage with this speaker is so much wider and the clarity of the voices is amazing. Voices were starting to sound dull to me with the CC-2. Crutchfield had a Beta C360 in their scratch and dent store so after some research I decided to give it a try. Best home theatre purchase I have ever made. It is large, but this is one case where I would do what it takes to make this speaker fit into your system. I actually have it on an audio rack at ear level beside the TV. The sound stage is so large that the unusual placement does not distract from my enjoyment of movies at all. I was so impressed with this center channel that I also got two Beta 20's to replace my front speakers. The Beta 20s complement the C360 perfectly in a 5.1 system. I read one internet review that said you should go with the beta C250 if you use the Beta 20's as fronts because the C360 is a 3 way speaker and would overwhelm the 20's. Not true. I'm pretty sure Infinity engineered the 20's to be used as fronts with the C360 as well as rears. I love my set up. You don't need a lot of power with these speakers, they have good sensitivity. I also love the metal grills of the Beta series (which is one reason I went ahead and got the Beta 20's also). I highly recommend this center channel.
