This sonically and aesthetically appealing model has everything a high-performance center channel requires and then some. It provides the fidelity, clarity and power audiences need to transform ordinary living rooms into dynamic theater spaces. The Synergy Series C-20 center channel offers phenomenal sound and stylish flair at an affordable price point. It has been designed to deliver all the detail, subtleties and dynamics required for the ultimate home theater experience.

The C-2 is a two-way Tapered Array system that utilizes a pair of 5.25-inch magnetically shielded, IMG woofers and a 1-inch aluminum diaphragm compression driver mated to square Tractrix Horn, which increases sensitivity and minimizes room interactions that blur sonic detail.

Available in a black finish with titanium accents, the contemporary look of the C-20 is two-fold. With its grille on, the C-20 offers a sense of elegance that blends in nicely with your home décor, but take the grille off and you get an aggressive and powerful statement that exudes extreme performance.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound!

Pros: Its a center channel speaker that can deliver the goods.

Cons: Took a little longer than I thought it would to find a good placement since this speaker was twice the size as my old center channel

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Crystal clear. Matches perfectly with the whole F-30 system.

Cons: Was a bit Smaller then i was hoping for as the center for the F-30 surround system. No fault of the speaker and definitely not worth taking a star off for it makes up for it.

Other Thoughts: Went from a very large Paradigm center to this rather small c-20. First thought "I made a mistake" as i was taking it out of the box. That thought quickly went away once i started setting up my 7.1 surround. Matches wonderfully with the F-30 fronts. Sounds float across the front sound stage with out a flaw. Take some time, run your room correction program. Then bust out a spl meter and the measuring tape and tweak the program. Theres a reason the F-30 surround system with this center channel gets ratings of 9+ out of 10.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat after break-in

Pros: Great sound. Matches beautifully with my F-20s. Plenty loud.
Aesthetically pleasing (once you get used to it.)
Large size. This might seem like a flaw to some, but it would look silly next to the F-20s if it was any smaller.

Cons: Long break-in period. I usually don't buy the whole "It's gonna take a while to break in" stuff, but with my C-20, it was true. For the first month or so, I seriously considered sending it back. It didn't match my (already broken-in) F-20s at all. It stood out like a sore thumb when sounds moved across the front sound field. After about a month, something happened, and it sounds great now. The sound field is contiguous, instead of broken, and dialogue is crisp and defined.

Other Thoughts: If you have any of the F-series fronts, you owe it to yourself to pick up this speaker as the center channel. After the break in period, you won't be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsClear, crisp sound! Unbeatable Price!

Pros: First off, the price research that I did on these speakers before i purchased them from Newegg.com was extensive! I guess you can call it 'cheap', but I hate the feeling I have after a purchase and find a better price somewhere else! After a week plus of surfing the internet for prices, I could not find a better price than Newegg's price of $129.00 plus FREE S/H on 1/08/14!! I like cheap prices but I will NOT sacrifice quality for price! This speaker fits the mold perfectly!

Prior to this purchase I was running a 5.1 setup with a some of older JBL speakers that I had purchased new around 2001. The center JBL speaker started cracking. The research started. I was going to just replace the center speaker but after being so impressed with the quality of sound at both low and higher volumes we decided to replace the entire speaker setup. We have decided on the Klipsch Synergy line and have also purchased F-30's for the front and S-10's for the rear. The difference in sound is night and day! I would not hesitate in purchasing any of the Klipsch line of speakers. I am sold and shall look to Klipsch for all of my audio upgrades in the future and Newegg will be my first stop to check and compare prices!

I could't help but be impressed by all the 4 and 5 star reviews for the Klipsch brand of speakers! How can that many people be wrong? It is rare that I write reviews. I was so impressed with the sound quality of Klipsch speakers that I couldn't resist putting in my two cents worth of praise!

Cons: I have read and have to agree with the design of the enclosure for the C-20 speaker. I would have preferred a speaker with straight lines instead of the "bubble" design on top. Its not that is unattractive, just makes for an odd ball shape in my rectangular design of the entertainment system. I plan on purchasing some of the fabric that covers the front of the speaker and covering the hole up in my entertainment center that the speaker sits in.

5 out of 5 eggsKeeper!

Pros: Crisp and clear dialogues. Able to handle oomph and bass which is essential for an awesome home theater. Conversations and sound effects are more distinct and discernible on higher volumes with no distortions from my own personal experience.

Even experimented setting the center channel size on small, amp crossed over to 80 and seemingly, for my taste and preference, it's better for it to be otherwise left on large because of its sonic capabilities.

Cons: Not a perfect timbre match with the Synergy F-30. I was wishing that Klipsch came out with a C-30 or a C-40 even, lol. Its not a fault to the C-20's though as capable and fantastic as they are. The F-30's are just so efficient and loud, especially the highs and it will drown the center channel if not adjusted properly. I have to tone down the front levels a couple of notches which solved the problem down right sweet. Mind you the F-30's are about 15 feet apart, aimed and triangulated to my favorite sweet spot, along with the C-20, also angled along with the pair of S-10's, and its affordable bliss.

Other Thoughts: Who am I to question Klipsch for not making a center channel a step above this one? It is known that the most important speaker of a home theater is the center so in case you have a couple of F-30's of the Synergy line, you might want to consider an RC-62II to go along with it. In my case though, a couple of notches down the amp settings for the left and right mains, saved me quite a few bucks in my pocket to keep and still love this C-20!

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Sound

Pros: They are timbre matched with the B20s and F20s. I initially had the C20 and two B20s as my front speakers until I could find a good deal on the F20s, at which time the B20s became my surrounds. They all sound excellent together.

Cons: Compared to the F20s, the mids sound slightly more hollow. The finish is a plain black compared to the rest of the 20 series that has a black wood texture.

Pros: I haven't even broken them in yet and they sound awesome!

5 out of 5 eggsCan't beat Klipsch

Pros: This is a great center speaker. I was running a yamaha set up with also sounded good, but the mids were not very strong. This speaker has great mids and highs and matches the B-20's I bought also

Cons: The shape is odd, considering everything else is a square design.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh sound quality

Pros: I am currently using 2 F-20s that actually by themselves offered a great sound experience. I ordered the C-20 because I love to crank my receiver during movies but still want crisp and clear dialogue. The C-20s allows for just that. They were an excellent addition to my setup.

Cons: this speaker is large - not truly a con as the dimensions are readily visible when you purchase. I had to ask a neighbor to build me a hollow wooden box into which I placed my C-20 and onto which I place my 47inch LCD TV. now my setup is perfect.

Other Thoughts: as stated above, currently running 2 F-20s and 1 C-20. Don't even have a sub yet since the F-20s pump out plenty of bass.
