A Combined Center & Subwoofer
Preface: My 5.1 DTS system
Like many others I am the happy owner of a DVD player and enjoy watching movies and concerts in surround sound.
The 5.1 DTS system requires 2 front speakers, 2 rear speakers, one center loudspeaker and one subwoofer.
My apartment does however not provide the ideal dimensions for such a space demanding setup. The rear speakers should ideally be fullrange (like the front speakers). The same goes for the center speaker. The subwoofer, however should only represent the lower frequency range (.1 is for "below 100 Hz"). The rear speakers should provide a fullrange reproduction, but since our sound localization is definitely more sensitive to sounds originating in the forward semisphere than the backward semisphere I decided that a good pair of satellite speakers would do.
