    I have recently upgraded my centre speaker from a Kef 100c to a 200c. My 100c sat on a centre stand that I made myself by placing a platform made of chipboard edged with architrave and sprayed matt black and fixed on top of an Atacama se24 stand. I made this centre stand, as I was unable to find a manufacturer that produces a dedicated centre stand. Before I increase the size of the stand to accommodate the much larger 200c can anyone tell me how they constructed their stand or give me the name of a manufacturer that supplies dedicated centre stands.

    I used two false floor support stands cut to length, then drilled and tapped them so that I could make small height adjustments and tighten a screw to keep them at that height.

    I lathed down some bolts to make spikes for feet, then cut some chipboard to the same size as the center speaker.

    Finaly I screwed the board to the legs, adjusted for height and angle, and sat back and listened.

    Interesting site Gary, you have obviously put a great deal of effort into converting your loft space, it looks great. Thanks for the info on how you constructed your centre speaker stand.
