    Center Channel Speaker Shelf for TV

    I just built my own w/ materials I got from Home Depot. Having the center channel sit on top of a $3000 TV sounds rather risky to me. Mines is sitting below the TV while pointing up at the viewer. The total cost of the materials cost about $25. tony

    Center Speaker placement vs. TV

    Mark i would avoid putting the center on top of the DLP, considering how expensive your TV is compared to the center channel. I have a DIY center channel stand that I use to tilt my center up towards the listening position in my setup. I have a 50" LCD projection Tv. It sounds perfectly fine...

    how high the speaker stand should be for 12'' high speaker?

    iris if you have some free time, it is quite easy to build your own speaker stand. I built 4 of mines with materials purchased from Home Depot. The final product is only a fraction of the cost of the retail stands. tony
