I realize that's probably the optimal placement, but I'll be moving soon, and found a entertainment center that I really like. The problem is that it's shaped like a rectangle, divided into an even four spaces. My center speaker would go into one of the top panels (fits really nicely in fact). Now as you see, it will be off-centered. I *could* move the TV all the way to whichever side the speaker will be on, but I'd rather not do that. Is this a bad idea? Will the off-centering be tremendously noticeable? If it would, I may just scrap the idea. BTW - the speaker could not go on top of the TV Thanks for the comments.
