I always thought my mid-tweeter-mid center sounded boxy and unatural atop the television, and kept it off for anything mostly musical and some films when I didn't have to share my comfy couch. I was somewhat unoccupied over the holidays, and played with placement a bit. Before, I'd tried a few inches of spacing above the TV and a bit in front and found it slightly better but abandoned the setup when my cat toppled the unstable pile. This time, horizontal, on a cinder block on the ground, a bit in front of the TV it was better but still a bit off. Vertical, angled up towards the seats, 4" off the ground (at 19", that's all that would clear) it actually sounds good. I think getting rid of the 34x47" baffle underneath it fixed most of the problem, and the controlled vertical dispersion eliminated what was left from floor bounce.
