8320 vs G2

Hi, I've just installed my brandnew 8330 as stereo speaker. Sound is amazing!
I think about upgrading my surround and center speaker.

I would go for a 8320 or G2 as centre.
Next step would be to replace the surround-speaker by 8010 or G1.

What do you think about this plan? Is 8320 or G2 a good choice for centre? I guess because for important midrange frequency, this should work.
I am wondering, whether the G2 is ready for GLM calibration? And what about the 8010 and G1?

Hi Uwe,

Thanks for your question. Our recommended option for center channel would be same as your left and right monitor, 8330. Center channel is very important in multichannel systems so it should have equal quality and output power to the left and right channels. If it is absolutely necessary to compromise, one model size smaller monitor can be used (8320).

Only SAM series monitors and subwoofers support the GLM/AutoCal calibration. G One, G Two or 8010 do not support it.
