    Hi All

    Im planning on getting 6 Kef Q1's, 5 on Stands ( Atacam Nexus 6 ) but im strugling with the front centre.

    Ive got a Tosh 32ZD26P TV and cant stand the speaker ontop or underneith - As usuall the TV is in a corner ( Hence 6.1 Setup ).

    If i mounted a Centre speaker on a corner shelf will it ruin the effect ? I guess it might boom a bit and as it would be approx 0.8 of a meter behind the two fronts id need to adjust the delays ?

    Any Advice or other sugestions either for mounting or Setting it up ?

    Thanks for your help

    Kind Regards

    Gareth

    I've used centre speakers on wall mounted stands - no problem, just use a SPL meter to check volume afterwards

    Mylo your a Star

    Thats exactly what i need !!!! I was thinking of maybe making somethin glike this but though it might look a bit rough - This one looks great - less chance of boominess aswell :)

    Cheers :) This forum rules :smashin:

    Regards

    ( Cheers for replying aswell common - much appreciated - at £7 the farnell one is probably cheaper than a wall bracket and should sound better ( maybe - well less setting up ) )

    I' ve used with great success Ikea's tv wall mount £9 for fronts and rears as well placing the speakers horizontally, its very rigid with up to 7 screws for fixing - not forgetting a few blobs of blu-tac
