Centre speaker to fit below TV

I am looking to wall mount my LG B8 65" OLED at eye level with a glass cabinet below housing my Sky Q box, Amplifier and Blu Ray player. My existing centre speaker works fine but if I sit it on top of the cabinet, or wall mount it below the TV, I would have to have the TV a bit higher than I would prefer. I only have a maximum height gap of 11 cm to play with, otherwise the TV would have to be mounted higher. I can't find any centre speakers to fit. Ironically, most sound bars would look perfect in the space available but I already have a 5.1 system. I don't know much about sound bars but I am assuming they cannot be used as a stand alone speaker to replace a centre speaker. If they can be used in this way then that would be the perfect solution! Otherwise are there any centre speakers with similar dimensions to a sound bar? Any suggestions would be very welcome.


Depending on the distance between your left and right speakers you could dispense with a centre altogether giving you a 4.1 set up. All the front speakers should be from the same manufacturer and model range so as to preserve timbre across the front.

However, the centre speaker can be the most important of the front three as it can carry almost all of the dialogue on a soundtrack and it does tie that dialogue perfecting to the screen. Personally I would place the TV to suit a centre speaker. I have my TV above my centre which itself is at seated head height.
