I would like to know if there are dedicated center channel speakers for a car? I just got a DVD in dash and it has 1 AV plug for a center channel speaker. I guess I will have to run a mono AV to an amp to power the center channel speaker? Thanks

Yep, they're floating around out there...

Thank you. Man those are expensive for one little speaker! Have you used one? Are they worth it? Thanks

I haven't ever used one personally, but I have heard the DIN unit in a sound board. Clarity and range is pretty decent. Doesn't get very low, but then most 5.1 encoded streams (such as a DVD) use the center channel primarily for higher frequencies such as speech and positional sound effects.

I have a pair of CDT coaxils that I am not using. Could I use these as a center channel speaker? I can just run a mono AV to the amp and bridge it to the speakers, or would it be best to use just one speaker? Thanks for all the help.

One speaker would work fine.

IMO a center channel in a car isn't worth it. you aren't sitting in the middle, so that kind of defeats the purpose.

Agreed for the most part. However, if the entire system is imaged properly, the center channel has its place.
