Centre channel means an audio channel that is common to many surround sound formats. Centre channel is mostly dedicated to reproducing the dialogue of an audio-visual program. The speaker connected to the centre channel is called the centre channel speaker and is placed in the centre or behind the screens to create the effect that the sound is coming from the screen itself. Centre channel speakers are important for those who are looking for a more realistic audio experience. One does not strictly need a centre speaker but it is by far the most important audio output device to have around if you’re building a home theatre system. All of the dialogue or audio is sent to the centre in a properly mixed audio stream, and having a centre channel greatly affects the overall audio clarity.
