Low profile CC speaker that is good sounding


I have all Paradigm speakers in my home theater.  Have been upgrading them as needed or desired.  The fronts are now Studio Reference V2 and would like something comparable in sound.  Used to have Atoms V2 and the Studios were a good step up from those.  Clarity, bass and dynamics are all much better in the Studios.

Here's the catch.  I have a very nice entertainment cabinet for the electronics, TV and CC speaker.  The space for the CC has ONLY a height clearance of just under 7".  The CC would have to be less than 7", preferably 6 3/4" or less.  There is plenty of room in the other dimensions.  If you do have a recommendation, please give any sound characteristics if you know them.

Thank you,
Bob

I went through all the “good sounding” center speakers I’m aware of (and that I think are on the level of your Studio Refs) and they’re all 7.5” or above.  The center channel is too important.  My advice — get out a saw or ditch the cabinet.  Cabinets are the enemy of good sound.  Best of luck. 
Thanks soix.  That appears to be the sum of things.
Um, if you are using room correction, just about any center channel, or even a lot of bookshelves which fits will work pretty well here.

I mean, not ideal, as larger = more output, and while yes, the cabinets muck with the sound the room EQ will deal with most of it.
It's the fit thing that's the problem.  Too bad the entertainment unit is so nice looking.   I've thought about adding a spacer to all sides just under  the top section.  It would be a lot of work, but then an 8" H CC speaker would work size wise and would be much better sound wise.

My home theater is a pretty good sounding system, but the main system  is what I listen to the most and it sounds quite freakin' good.
Thanks soix and erik_squires.  I did find a couple center channel speakers that would fit my size and sound criteria.  After consulting the sellers on the sound of the two, I choose the Polk Audio TSI CS10 CC as the described sound came the closest to matching my front speakers.  Will have them by Friday and will let you know how they sound in the home theater.  If nothing else, they should be some upgrade on the sound and 18 years newer than what I had--therefore, should last for quite awhile.

How did this turn out for you?
Good question, mahler123.  First of all, the entertainment cabinet is staying as my wife an I both love the look.  Secondly, after the Polk speaker broke in over 3 weeks, the sound became much improved.  I now have 1 E-Mat+ under the Anthem receiver, and 1 more under the Sony TV, plus 1 on my circuit panel door directly in line with all the stereo and home theater circuits.  The sound is VERY close to the same as the much more expensive Studio 20's except for the amount and deep sound of the bass.  It fits beautifully in the cabinet and should give a whole lot of years of good sound.  My Paradigm CC was 18 years old.
