Default Focal twin vs KH O300 vs PSI A21 for LCR

Hi,

I'm going to change my LCR speakers. I made a few listening tests and finally i hesitate between those 3 speakers. I'm concerned about LCR ability of Focal twins and the KH because there are Left or right. does someone has some of them in a 5.1 or LCR set up ?
And the PSI seems very good to listen to but i found the sweet spot very very tight. Can someone confirm that ?
thanks

I use focal twins for lcr. They are about 8 feet away. Center speakers imaging is great.

only tried the PSI - loved them. Top notch. I like very flat midrange speakers as I was weaned at the BBC on the great Rogers LS 5/8 and 3/5a designs.

Together with Trinnov or Avid DMon and your mixes are probably limited by your talent (or your location recordings) rather than your monitoring (I am not being disrespectful to your abilities here).
