    Hello,

    About to purchase a Center Speaker, the thought of putting it directly ontop of the tv does not appeal. I would like to put it underneath the tv, does anyone provide a stand of some sort to achieve this, otherwise the speaker would collapse under the weight of the tv....

    Thanks

    Neil.

    Neil,

    Check out:

    Optimum at www.optimum2000.com
    Sound Organisation at www.soundorganisation.net
    Soundstyle at www.soundstyle.net
    Arca at www.veda-uk.co.uk

    I'm looking for a stand that will take a 32" TV and house a vertically mounted bookshelf size monitor speaker that I'm using as for the centre channel and look reasonably attractive. There are plenty that will house a horizontal one.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    Why don't you want to put it on top of the TV?

    My centre speaker sits on a Rega Senta stand on top of the TV and it's fine.

    I have a AV300 stand from optimum 2000. Costs about £300 and there modular. Centres look ugly on top of TV's. There glass and chrome and look the part. I can mail you a pic with my centre on it, if you would like to see how they look.

    John: Is the Senta adjustable for width and depth? I've looked on the Rega site but all it says is that it's adjustable to fit on the TV set. How much is it?

    Sean: I'd like to see a pic if I may.

    The Rega stand is not adjustable for width or depth, but it is adjustable for how much the TV drops away at the back.

    It accomodates my B&W CMC speaker quite happily.

    It's not clear from the Rega web site exactly how it works, so I've produced a diagram of it in place. http://www.pepperbox.demon.co.uk/stand.gif

    I think it costs about 50 quid.

    Sean: Thanks for the pics - very nice. I'm making further enquiries with Optimum to see if the centre shelf can be made lower or removed to house my centre vertically.

    John: Thanks for the diag - did you really produce that yourself!! Very impressive. I'm going to check it out at a local dealer in case my centre fits in it. I reakon a vertically mounted monitor is going to look a bit odd though.

    I have seen centre speakers mounted on low floorstsnding stands below projection screens but this is not really feasible when you have a large heavy CRT that needs to sit on something.
