    I have a Panny 47wx52 and was wondering if there is a weight limit to the center speaker when placed on top? I have e-mailed Panasonic but they have yet to get back. I have a Paradigm CC-350(25Lbs)

    A 25-pound center-channel speaker won't hurt that Panny. Your main concern is whether there's room enough to accommodate the speaker's footprint.

    I doubt a 25 lb speaker would cause a problem. If you can, though, consider using a stand in front of the TV. In my case, it sounded quite a bit better. Hopefully, blocking the internal speakers is not a concern for you.

    You might also build or buy a shelf for the center speaker that will distribute some of the weight to the plastic housing. I'm just talking out of my ass, though, since I don't really know how deep the top of the Panny is.
