    I don't know if this has been posted before, but this trick worked for me. I have a TV that is wall mounted (within an entertainment center- more on that in another thread), with a shelf about 15" below. I didn't like how low the center speaker sat when it was on the shelf.

    My solution was to disassemble the stand that came with the TV. My stand separated into several parts, one of which was a heavy 90 degree bracket that screwed into the back of the TV and into the base. I used this bracket and some plastic spacers, which I screwed into the top of the center channel speaker. For dampening I cut some sprinkler hose a bit longer than each spacer, and ran the screws through that.

    This solution is not for the squeamish, or the high-end speaker owner who spent several hundred dollars on their center channel speaker, but it worked perfectly on my old Yamaha surround sound system, and again on my new Andrew Jones front speaker setup. I mounted the new speaker a little further forward for balance, and made use of some more sprinkler hose when I realized the speaker was just going to touch the edge of the TV. That stuff has a million and one uses...
