    I have a sony 48 inch rear projection t.v. (kp-48s75), the jbl NSP1 package, and two SA-WM40 subs in my setup. I'm placing my n-center on top of the t.v. I'm wondering if the bass from the n-center will damage my t.v. cause of the vibrations? Thanks.
    Here's a link to the t.v. so you can get an idea...

    No it won't!
    Even if it's set to "large",I doubt it puts out a lot of bass.

    When playing something loud, put your hand on the TV cabinent. Is it vibrating? While not causing electronic damage, all that vibration is muddying the sound.

    Get some rubber door-wedges, or pink erasers or even paper-back books and use these as feet to get that center off the TV enclosure. Also, pull the center speaker forward so that it over-hangs the face of the TV by about a quarter inch. This will keep the sound from coupleing to the face of the TV.

    Hope this helps.

    I agree,I use Lovan's "The Director" center speaker stand.
    Click on the "little house icon" to see it.

    Heh Lewis, I see you have a JL Audio sub their. Where did you get the idea to use that for your home sub? How does it sound? Just curious, I own 2 JL W4 15" and love them, probably the best car sub out their as far as I'm concerned. Although I only use 1 in my car as 1 is loud enough.

    As well as those tweaks that Bob mentioned, I found that putting a large mat of .75 inch wool under the speaker improved the sound even more than the little isolators I use. Also decreased vibrations going into the tv. Be careful not to bolck the ventilation holes though.

    Cheers,
    Mike
