    Had to sit my new Paradigm Studio CC v.2 on top of my Toshiba 35” CRT. The top of this older unit is slightly rounded and winged. Need some rubber or vinyl feet about ¾” to 1” tall to mount at the rear of the speaker to get the proper downward alignment. I’m finding self-adhesive ones this size are hard to find. I have found if I angle it too severely the front of the speaker starts losing contact with the top of the TV it starts to slide forward. Any suggestions on a vender where I could find these? Or, anyone using a better solution?

    You might try the old doorstop trick. I don't know if that would be too steep.

    I used these, and just left the points off.

    This thread might be of some use to you as well.

    John thanks for the links!

    So...the metal feet don't skate off the TV?

    Checking out the dimensions on the OmniMount now.

    I used a little of that soft cabinet/drawer liner (not the puffy foam, the almost vinyl like stuff) underneath them. They stay pretty well put, not to mention my center is 38 lbs...[​IMG]

    LOL!!!

    Our JBL center downstairs is on top of a TV cabinet. To angle it down, I went on a 'house raid' to find an object to tilt it with. I finally found a few boxes of mini staples from the 99 cent store (cheap trash) and placed them under the rear of the speaker. Works fine and cost ME nothing.
