    I had never really noticed but I recently read that if you have to put your center or any other speaker in a tv cabinet,you should stuff the cavity it is in.Well,as soon as I read that,I noticed it did not sound all that great and noticed echos.Well,I wrapped up a large pillow with a thick wool blanket and stuffed the cabinet and it took care of the trouble...I was impressed.

    Anyother tips this cheap(free) that make such a big difference?

    There is actually a lot of "tweeks" that people do to their systems. Some are more effective than others.

    Some non-controversial ones usually involve putting spikes on your L/R speakers & making "feet" to get your center speaker off the TV surface or off the shelf. A good trick is to use some rubber door wedges under your center to both isolate it, and give it some downward tilt.

    You can also use a inexpensive laser pointer to "see" where your L/R speakers are pointing and play with the focus.

    Check out the "HT for Newbies" thread in the Basics area, or the "Tweeks and Connections" for others.`
