    Anyone have an easy solution to mount a typical center speaker on top of my Samsung DLP RPTV? Everyone must be in the same boat with these LCD and DLP RPTV's (very narrow top surface, sharp angle rear, etc.). Any solutions?

    I also have my center down low. Moved it there a few years ago and I quit going Huh? all the time on the dialogue.

    If your center looks OK on top of a DLP/LCD or plasma, I assert that it is too small![​IMG]

    I don't care for those TV-mount speaker stands. Looks flimsy and I expect there would be too much potential for vibration, both into the TV and through the speaker and stand.

    I am hoping to find a nice little wood finish TV stand with a large enough opening for the Center Channel speaker right below the TV... but finding such a TV stand is proving a challenge. Any recommendations for such a TV stand ??? The opening needs to be in the middle of the stand and probably at least 8" tall by 20" wide.

    There are plenty of open concept glass and/or metal stands that meet the above requirements, but I much prefer the traditional wood finish stand.
