Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: What the harm in using vintage speakers as mains in a home theater setup?

The issue with using vintage speakers in a HT system is matching them to the rest of the speakers. This hasn't stopped me from using a pair of Dahlquist DQ-M9C's in the Family Room HT, along with un-matched Center and Rear speakers. The result is somewhat muddy dialogue. Someday I'd like to have a matching speaker system for the HT, but in the meantime, 90%+ of my listening is vintage 2-Channel. As you can see, I have my priorities.
