I have a 50" Panasonic Plasma.  Currently I am working on upgrading my sound system.

I want to switch from an old Sony 5.1 system to a new Yamaha.  My current center speaker fits neatly into the space between the blu ray, dvd player, cable box, and vcr on my stand.  But the center speaker for the Yamaha is wider and will not fit in that space.  I do not want to mount the speaker on the tv itself or on the wall. What I am looking for, but can't seem to locate online, would be simple boxlike shelf on which I could sit the tv and have the center speaker inside this box.  Essentially it would be a very small shelf about 15 inches wide, 15 inches deep, and probably about 6 to eight inches high with the back and front open.  Were I clever with building things, I would do so.  Anyone know where I might find something like that?  Thanks.

Which Yamaha system? Is the center itself big enough to sit the speaker on?

No, the tv has a pretty large footprint and the top of the speaker is not flat or large enough.

Just making sure, cause many people don't think of that. Mine is currently sitting on top of a 5-disc CD player with the Directv HD-DVR.

I am now thinking another alternative would just to be raise the tv a few inches with a black box of some sort.  I'd rather not put my cd changer under the tv.  If I raised the tv I could just put the center speaker in front of the tv.  I was able to do this with the two previous tvs but with the Panasonic it interfers with/blocks the remote control function.  Some sites are showing what are essentially monitor stands for a pc, but none so far are quite the right dimensions.  What ever I end up with it needs to be black to go with the entertainment center which is almost new, the tv, and most of my components.

 

I can't be the first person who needs something like this.
