    I'm not sure if this is the right part of the forum to ask, but here goes. Those of you who have a wall mounted LCD/plasma TV and 5.1 sound from your DVD/home cinema system, what do you do about the centre speaker of the 5.1? I caouldn't think what to do to use it, so I've ditched it, using the TV speakers in mono to act as a centre speaker for the 5.1. I was just wondering what solutions others had come up with. Cheers.

    In any 5.1 system the centre speaker is the key speaker as most vocals come out of it, simply dumping it is a very poor move.
    But as you have not stated what speakers you have it will be hard for anyone to give advice.

    Thanks for the reply. I wasn't keen on dumping it, but have to think about the aesthetics of the room (according to my wife), so putting a shelf on the wall underneath the telly has been outlawed. The TV is Samsung 32" LCD (with the point at the bottom i.e. not a simple rectangular shape) and the speakers are part of my (loathsome - but that's a different story) Sony DAVS888. Has anyone tried digging a hole into the wall and recessing the speaker?
