Using mutiple monitors for center channel

Padawan Viestejä: 30 Liittymispäivä: 9.12.2009 Viimeisimmät viestit
If I have two HT312B/1037B speakers and use a Y splitter cable with the intention of using it as a center channel speakers..will this be the equilvalent of a single HT324AC/1034BC? or HT320BC/1038BC?

Hi,

You really shouldn't use two center channel speakers (or any other channel). You would be getting nasty comb filtering effects at mid and high frequencies because the two sources of signals are placed too far away from each other.

So definitely not recommended!

I forgot to include further information. I will still be using HT315b/1038b's for the L/R mains *4 meters apart....but wanted to consider using a pair of HT312/1037b's in the center of the display, by placing them side by side horizontally directly underneath the display.

Hi,

I am sorry to sound this negative, but unfortunately my answer doesn't change - do not do it, you are only asking for troubles.

This is the speaker model you want to use below your screen: http://www.genelec.com/products/3-way-monitors/1038bc/

Thanks for the help..I was just trying to find an alternative to using an extra set of hts312. In terms of audio it really doesn't help to cut corners.
