Questions & Answers

A Sony SSS-700B center speaker is in my possession Can this be used in place of a ct101 with an impedance of 3 ohms?

It will work, yes.

Could this center channel speaker handle a maximum power output of 100 watts?

This amplifier is rated at 60 watts but I have a 110 watt amp per channel and it works great. That is the maximum wattage it can run at, but you are unlikely to load it with that many watts unless you are blowing it hard. No matter which receiver you use for your home theater, it will work.

My car is equipped with them. Will they work fine?

In theory, they could be used in a car, but why would you want to? Many speakers are specifically designed for cars, whilst these speakers are for surround sound systems in the home.

Selected User Reviews For Dayton Audio C452 Dual 4-1/2" 2-Way Center Channel Speaker

Like a televised program, the speaker conversation is somewhat similar to the one heard on TV
3/5

Such a speaker is a good example of what you get for your money. It could be compared to a TV conversation that a speaker is having I believe that is good enough for you if it looks/sounds ok. As an example, here is what I've experienced In order to make my outdoor theater truly perfect, I added a center. It was evident to me from the first minute of the first movie that I would not She thought it would be fine. I hooked up the speaker the next day in my family room that has a midrange sound system Comparing this speaker to a JBL center, we tested this speaker against an entry-level JBL. There was a significant difference between the sound field in each of the concerts. My wife was able to tell that I had changed so much.

Great sound for the price
5/5

Initially, I did not like the sound, but now it sounds fantastic. Still, since it was not a very expensive speaker, I was okay with that. After several weeks of use, the sound started to sound pretty good. We're worth the money you pay for it, so yes, we're worth It's also an excellent choice for those on a budget. Just give it a little time to burn in, and you'll enjoy it.

I would say the best budget speaker above a minimum level of good quality if I had to phrase this concisely
5/5

One of the few center speakers available for this price range, this is a good product that is definitely on the better side. I am not saying the quality will be as good as a high end speaker, but it has the advantage of being a good budget product. The 99% of cases in which the in-vehicle audio is great has a user-friendly interface with great sound Theatres in the home.

I have completed my wall of sound with this track
5/5

In the middle of my computer desk, I have two Polk T50 tower speakers (and needed something to bridge the gap. This I put the earphones a few feet away from me in my office chair when I want to truly immerse myself in music. Due to the fact that my amplifier ( does not have a dedicated center channel, I wired it as follows. I) speaker stand.

The tweeter on my older Kef Model 100 center channel quit working, so I bought this
4/5

I am satisfied for the price. I would say it's decent for its price of $30 or so. The build quality is average, so don't expect the build to compete way above its I would consider it to be an adequate center channel for an entry-level home theater. While it lacks depth and isn't as transparent as I would like a center channel to be, the voices sound clear and good. There is just a little too much brightness from the tweeter. this speaker isn't too bad at all for about $30.

dubious about the price
5/5

Unbelievable price for a speaker that can crank out some amazing Center Channel audio. You may be able to drive it if you have enough power. The problem is. If you do not have a receiver that allows you to equalize each Channel, then it may sound flat to you, so I recommend to buy the model with the upgraded tweeter instead. If you can equalize the center channel with a good receiver, then this thing sounds fantastic! Don't wait! Buy it now!.

THE ADDITION TO ITS SYSTEM IS GREAT
5/5

I was able to hook it up very easily. I really like the sound it makes, and it was a great addition to my The center of a TV set makes a lot of old TV shows sound better for me, so I watch a lot of them.
