I have M22s and a VP100. Love the M22s. I am looking for more/louder center channel. I am wondering if it is possible to buy another VP100 and connect the two in parallel on the center channel of my Denon AVR 2310CI? Should be a 4 ohm load. Has anyone tried this?
Any input greatly appreciated Thanks!!

Many people do exactly this. Your Denon should be able to drive them without a problem.
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Loc: It's all about the location.
You could try boosting the level of the centre you have now by a couple of Db's before you go and buy a second one as well.
Half of communication is listening. You can't listen with your mouth.

Adding a second center won't necessarily make that channel louder, it is usually done to help anchor the dialog to the middle of the screen due to less than perfect speaker/listener positioning.

As Adrian suggested if you want the center louder simply run it a few db higher in the speaker settings, many of us here do just this.
