Can advice if I switch the rear (wharfedale) with the front(gale) and purchase a second hand wharfedale center, will it be a worthwhile upgrade?

thanks

why you want to do so? any particular reason?

If you like wharedale sound more then you can swap to front and see if you like the sound. If yes. then it is worth. But make sure your second handle unit is good in condition.

I thought the wharfedale diamond 8.3 looks bigger and i see wharfedale brand everywhere so often so i am thinking it is a better speaker than Gale speaker. hmm.gif

Thinking of getting perhaps a basic wharfedale diamond 9.cc center about Rm200 second hand. biggrin.gif

If not much difference and matter of personal preference then won't buy loh and maintain current setup

What is the reason to upgrade ah? Sound too warm? Too bright?
