    How do you place the center speaker on a RP like Sony 44PX2?

    Can't be below, the top isn't regular.....

    I've used it like that for 4 years with no problem, however I don't have unruly kids or pets to dislodge it :nono:

    My TV is the Toshiba 43" RPTV.

    I just put a shelf up behind the TV........

    Looks and sounds ok......evern the misses was inpressed.

    I also had to put 4 shelfs up, next to the TV for the A/V kit.......did not fancy going out and spending £200 or more on a A/V rack, with my kids running around.

    The misses evern liked the look of these, once i'd finished.

    And it was £160 cheaper than a rack.

    Whatever solution you use, pop four pieces of blue tack under the speaker and it will never move again...

    Yeah, Phil's (and mine because I have the same centre) is only 261mm deep.
    BTW the LCR600S3 is only 311mm deep according to B&W.

    It also weighs quite a bit more than the old CC-350 - and that's currently crushing my old TV. At least all that weight is going to good use, and should make it more stable if it balances properly. Wouldn't like to see your face if your HGS wobbles it off the top and it goes through your TV though!:eek::mad:

    Oh dear, what am I going to do when I order the complete Ref set for my new pad.:D

    I've got a Kef Model 200, no way I can put this ontop of my Toshiba 42PW23P. At 11kg, it might bend the screen.

    The top is only a couple of inches deep, even with blu-tack it'll still be very unstable.

    Reckon I would need to use double sided sticky pads.

    Another alternative is using a single speaker stand, place that in front of the set, and centre just under the screen.

    I,ve got a Mission M7C2 perched on top of a sony KP44PX2.The front of the speaker is flush with the front of the tv,with a line of blu tack under the front.Supporting the rear of the speaker,ive got a wedge of polystryne between the top/back of the tv and the base of the centre speaker.The weight of the speaker and some more blu tack keep the"wedge" from going anywhere....nice and steady:cool: ...so far!
