    My center speaker is a Polk Audio CS 350LS. It is 25.5" long 10.5" wide and 7" tall (4-4"speakers plus a 1" tweeter in the middle). It sits on top of a 46" mitsu. I want to angle it torwards my sitting position. I am not sure how much it weighs but it is heavy. Anybody have any suggestions on how to do this? I am worried about it sliding off whatever I put under it. Due to the size whatever support I use needs to be strong yet I dont want alot of weight on top of my tv.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    many have used the angled rubber door stoppers..or go and pick up some new -glue on feat that are just a tad bigger than the front...if no feet now..get larger for the back vs. front...sure many others may have other tricks.

    I have tried the rubber door stoppers like Thomas_A has suggested and they work quite well. The one thing I like is that the rubber won't let the speaker creep forward/downward with extended use.

    That is what I was worried about. I went to home depot tonight but I haven't found any that were big enough. It is a large speaker cabinet.

    Scott, there is always the wall mount option. Check out ChuckM's post in the middle of this thread at the HomeTheaterSpot. I did the same thing, total cost was $50. My B&W LCR6 was a little too heavy for my Mits 65807.
    Good luck to you!
    Pete
