It's part of the fun in this hobby : testing, trying different positions and...
I am testing a center channel setup these days using an old Logitec 2.1 satellite speaker (computer speakers) as a donner
Wires are as thin as they can gat, cheap plastic box, some acrylic Scotch tape
And it sounds pretty awesome!
I'll bet those Mylard don't really sound as bad as they seem.
I'll soon replace the center channel with a FaitalPro 3FE22 4 ohm in a 3D printed POD
But I am also going to test a MICCA COVO-S - you should check them out, wonderful set of speakers for about 40USD!!!
