If your home theater system can only accommodate a “smallish” center speaker but you don’t want to live with the shortcomings of a small speaker, the Take 1 may make your answer. It may measure 10″ wide, 4″ tall and 5″ deep but it throws out a soundstage that belies its modest physical size. If you read some of its positive reviews, they all talk about the “larger” than life soundstage it is capable of producing. On its own, it only extends down to 90Hz but if you partner it with a subwoofer, you can have a full range center channel setup. Music was crisp and clear via its twin 3″ woofers and 1″ dome tweeter. Dialogue was particular clean and clear.
Cosmetically, the speaker is in very nice shape. It was previously used as a demo with four other Take 1 satellite speakers and a subwoofer for a 5.1 setup that didn’t take up much room space but filled the room with sound. Speaker will be securely packed for safe shipping.
