Centre to match B&W DM310

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

I have some trusty B&W DM310 speakers in my lounge room. The current centre (not B&W)  I want to replace. Whilst the are plenty for sale most are the new Kevlar drivers and so I am concerned about matching.

 

So any recommendations? For sale I have seen CC6, LCR6S2 and CC3.  Not wedded to these just came up in the searches.

 

Thanks in advance!

dm310 are really going back... am not sure you will find something exactly close match meant to work with it. though likely id suggest any b&w centre utilised wiht them are likely / possibly a better match than what ever off brand using in the interim ?

 

especially second hand. id explore. but something you feel in scale and sounds looks similar from B&W back catalog... if it does turn out to be a miss match can always move on....,

 

in my own experience wiht 3 centre speakers over the years a better centre is a better centre. some brands are closer matches than others ...but while close in character I dont believe need an exact match in brand and series. close can work.

 

that said if you find another dm310 thats probably THE best match... though won't be in the shape form of a centre possibly looking for :D 

 

ps word of caution. the LCR speakers are meant to work in vertical orientation. turn them horizontal as a centre speaker and it changes their sound significantly ...

Thanks, that’s what I was thinking. Was just wondering if some might be better than others but as you say the time since I bought these will make a precise match difficult. 

If no one else has any better advice I will look to grab any B&W centre. Thanks for the heads up on the LCR I will avoid those.

      Extra Info:
       I’m regretfully selling these but with my move to QLD  I don’t have room for a large hifi system. They are located at my old work The Audio Experts / Whatmough Audio in Cheltenham and can be picked up from there.  
       
      these are a beautiful sounding speaker they are still a current model and retail at $11,499 they perform well above price range.

      Description
      Whatmough S33i 3-Way Floor-Standing Speakers
      Overview
      The Whatmough S33i floor standing speakers are the ultimate speaker in the Whatmough Signature series. Their design and built quality are up to the audiophile standards.  The S33i delivers truly spectacular sound.
      The Signature S33i are based on the Performance Series P33i, with significant improvements to bring them up to Signature Series status.
      Cabinet
      This cabinet design offers more than just great looks – they also offer improved sound quality.  By eliminating internal parallel surfaces, the curved surfaces offer clearer and cleaner sound by minimizing internal standing waves.  Even more significantly, the curved panels are inherently more rigid and less resonant than the flat panels of a conventional speaker cabinet, which further helps to minimize coloration.
      Tweeter
      The Signatures S33i uses the same Ring Radiator tweeter that is used in Whatmough’s flagship speaker, the Paragon. This ultra-expensive tweeter sounds incredibly fast and detailed while also sounding extremely smooth and open. It has a very flat response extending to beyond 40KHz.
      Midrange
      The Signature S33i uses a 100mm cellulous fibre coned mid-range driver. This driver has the speed and transparency no bass/mid driver can match.
      Bass
      The Signature S33i uses two 170mm fiberglass/nomex hybrid drivers especially developed for these speakers. The cone for this speaker is made of Nomex with a skin of fiberglass. This long throw driver uses a 33mm high temperature voice coil and a large double magnet system.
      This driver has very high power handling as well as a very transparent detailed sound quality.
      Crossover
      The S33i uses high grade audiophile film and foil capacitors in critical positions.  Air cored coils are used throughout, wound from a heavier grade of high purity Australian copper.
      System
      The perfect partner in the Signature Series system featuring the S8i in the centre and P12i or PFX3i speakers in the rear for a truly exceptional home cinema surround sound experience.
      The S33i is fully made in Australia.
       
      Configuration
      3-way bass reflex enclosure using two 170mm hybrid fibre cone long elbow bass drivers, a 100mm cellulose fibre midrange driver and a 35mm dual concentric tweeter with wave guide centre plug.
       
      Nominal Impedance 4 Ohms
       
      Amplifier Power Requirement 25-150 watts RMS

      Sensitivity
      88dB input level of 2.83V. (1 watt into 8 ?)
       
      Frequency Response
