Greetings,

Stay with the Polk's and keep the timbre matched so that sound stage is balanced.

Best for now.

Where is the center channel speaker?

I am decently well versed in home audio and I know the center channel is very key to a home theater set up. I never really thought about it with a car I guess but it would make sense it would be no different.
Greetings,

As you have read in the forum, their are two schools of thought regarding the center channel in car. If the cars sole purpose is play movie videos or TV shows that have a surround track in the recording, then a center is a must for a 5.1 or 7.1. Right now, for videos, their is only one (1) aftermarket DSP that can do that only in 5.1, the Alpine PXA-H800.

On the other hand, if you listen music the 2 schools of though are no and yes. No is for the purist that love the 2 channel separation as music is traditional recorded. The yes school say the center music brings a whole new perspective to music. The key element for the center channel for music is not to think in the same terms of a home theater for video. Over the last couple of years, many live music venues have a front L/C/R speaker setup.

As for the JGC 7.1 Alpine Premium Surround System, here at jeepgrage.org some here think the system is outstanding while others think it is poor. IMHO, it is poor because the DSP is setup for a generic system and not properly tuned. If you really want to have a proper center channel and create that wall of sound (music), then you will have to invest in a proper system. Believe me I know.

If you are going to do it, I would suggest listen to material in one of the European cars that has the HK Logic 7 built into it and get real sense how it is suppose to sound. Or try the Summit or SRT.

Best for now.

Scratch and dent prices. I talked to a rep and he said the only difference is some installation pieces may be replaced with the same but generic item in some cases. We only need the speakers and nothing else in the boxes. I bought the scratch and dent prices. You can see the pricing under the original price, just click on it.

Not yet, haven't got to them yet. Yes, budget upgrade for me also. Just looking to improve the sound some and so far I'm satisfied with the results of just 3 speakers upgraded.
