My quite old Marantz stereo speakers had three inch tweeters and 12 inch woofers. The system did produce quite good sound at reasonable levels and no distortion that I could hear. Of course the speaker enclosures were a bit bigger.Does that mean that they are closer to 1 15/16" than they are to 1 13/16"?
Most professional recordings are multi-channel >2 that have been remixed into the required delivery format.Center channel is a myth. If the left channel and right channel both have the same frequency and amplitude then the center channel (between left positive and right positive for instance) is zero volts. In other words, you're driving a speaker from (lets say) a 10 volt DC left channel and 10 volt DC right channel, the difference is zero voltage. We all know audio is not DC. But for the sake of argument and understanding, the center channel only reacts to when the two channels are at different frequencies and/or amplitude. If the left channel is at 1kHz and the right channel is at 1.1kHz then approximately 100 hertz is the difference between the channels. If you've ever tuned a guitar then you listen for the wah-wah of the tones that are supposed to be in tune. When the wah-wah goes away then the strings are in tune. When out of tune you hear that oscillation of the difference in frequency. No band has ever worked to record a third channel in their music. All members are tuned to matching frequency so that when they play they complement each other.
When the frequency is 180˚ opposed to each other they cancel each other out. Provided they are of the same amplitude and frequency. There IS no center channel.
For pure binaural recorded sources I would agree but that's not how most professional audio recording are mastered.I'm not familiar with 5.1 systems. I only know the stereo's I've worked with/on. Left and right channels.
As for multi-track recordings - those are individual instruments and vocals. The center channel on a stereo is just that - a myth. All the center channel is - is the difference between left and right. The results, which I have tried many years ago, is a muddy and muted signal. It would take a center channel amplifier in order to derive anything from that so-called track.
I'm not talking professional 16 track recordings, I'm talking about the two channel, left and right stereo systems you get in your home and car. There - there is no center channel.
Improving voicing was one of the reasons I built my own center, high and tilted down. I use front projection for movies and the above center placement keeps the voices near the screen.My home entertainment system is 7.1 but I only use 5.1 because I don't have room for all of the speakers.
The problem with my system is the center channel volume isn't loud enough relative to the front so the voices are very hard to hear at normal volume levels.
When I listen to music I use "pure direct" stereo. 2 channels only, no enhancements, even the display turns off.
Room size, seating spacings. You want the viewers not to head swivel across the screen constantly while filling the eyes with imagery.

With the Sound Bar above it has no Center Speaker.
So like you Say if it comes Time to Play Say a Voice from a Center Speaker it will Mix the Left and Right Speakers To Gather to make a Center Speaker.
I get this but what if the Left and Right Speakers are doing Sounds and it comes Time to have a Voice in the Center Speaker at the same Time?
Can it do a good Job at doing Both at the same Time?
