The Yamaha NS-C444 Dual 5" 2-Way 100-250 Watts Center Speaker has been designed specifically for home theater applications. The speaker is an acoustic suspension design and incorporates dual 5" Polymer-Injected Mica Diaphragm (PMD) cone woofers and a 1" aluminum dome tweeter. For improved imaging, the tweeter utilizes Yamaha's exclusive waveguide horn.
The center channel is the most important part of a movie soundtrack, reproducing the actor's voices and all of the other sounds associated with the on-screen action. Typically placed above, atop, or just below the television, the center channel speaker reproduces 75%+ of the on-screen action in a Dolby Digital soundtrack.
It is, therefore, important that it have a wide frequency response and high power handling capacity. For optimum performance, this speaker should also be voice-matched to the other speakers in your home theater, creating a seamless soundstage as action moves from left to center to right (and back) during playback of the selection.

I m using a complete set of speaker package NS-777, NS-333, NS-C444 and NS-SW300 with Aventage 1030. Believe me these speakers will rock with bass even if you dont have subwoofer. i was not hesitating to buy these speakers as because of its review but believe me all reviews are hoax about the speakers. But it was my Luck to have these. These package have detailed sound. I took the bass at -6 but i still found the bass from front speakers. Then i set the tower speaker at -10 and found that the bass was coming from the center. i really shocked that what a center is it that produce bass like the front speakers are doing that. I really love these package and previously i was using NS-P150, NS-F150 and NS-SW300. I now realized that Yamaha is the best brand that i have chosen. My next purchased would be SOAVO. Don't judge these speakers on reviews. and the Center is really big center not the small one.
When i need to listen to my best movies and musics and songs
