Although the centre channel does carry most of the dialogue, it is still a full frequency response channel and thus requires a speaker that can reproduce the full spectrum of sound. Ideally the centre channel speaker should atleast be a tonal match of the Front/Main speakers. Also, the number of drivers is not directly co-related to the frequency response of the speaker. Rather, the number of drivers in a speaker are dependent on individual engineering of each speaker and thus varies from speaker to speaker, even by the same manyufacturer. By the way, If you are referring to the centre speaker shown in this thread, then it does not have 'two' drivers. If you look more carefully, it has 'four' drivers, i.e. 'one' tweeter + horn (mids) & 'two' bass drivers.Why do center channels have 2 drivers? If its mainly for voice ... ?

1 tweeter + 2 bass drivers = 3 drivers + 1 horn (although technically not a driver) = 4 driverswhere can you see four drivers on the centre???
The front three speakers of the Klipsch Quintet SL package are of an MTM "D'Appolito" design with a horn-loaded 3/4 inch aluminum dome tweeter flanked by two 3.5 inch mid-bas drivers. Outside of the woofers are two ports.
hope this clears the confusion.
