    Just a quick question, can you mount a centre speaker on top of your TV?
    I ask cos the sets seem to slope downwards to the back!
    Cheers.

    As the TV comes its a NO for the Aconda.
    If you wanted you would have to build something, then maybe hook it in to the grills on the back of the set, to stop it sliding down.
    Please do not let this put you off the set it is well worth working round the problem.

    :cool: Ruby quartz shades.

    Well although the top of the Vitros I have slopes downwards towards the back of the TV, my Centre Speaker manages to stay there with no problems at all. Its not stuck down in any way, the slope is just not great enough for it to fall off. Does mean the sound is angled SLIGHTLY upwards, but doesn't seem to make much difference.

    Thanks guys!
    I do think having the centre speaker angled upwards will make a difference to the sound quality, I just wonder how much?
    :confused:

    Why don't you simply put it under the t.v.

    Under the TV? Surely the weight of the TV would damage the speaker?!!;)
    But seriously, the AV stand Im using is full.
    Any other suggestions?

    Ha!Ha! One thing you could consider is placing the speaker on a stand that allows the speaker to clear the t.v. Place the stand behind the t.v. I have a set of Apollo stands and while they are not the greatest(or dearest) they are sufficiently high for that purpose. Alternatively if the t.v. backs onto a wall put a shelf on the wall behind the t.v. at the appropriate hight and place the speaker on that. BTW your speaker is magnetically shielded.

    You don't want the centre speaker pointing upwards! It should point to where you are sitting, probably angled downwards!

    I use a centre speaker on my Vitros by using an adjustable cone at the back - perfect. These cones are the sort that you buy for your hi-fi seperates.

    I have the KEF eggs and the centre speaker sits on the Aconda perfectly. Although the back of the Aconda slopes down, the eggs can be adjusted so that the speaker is still directed towards the viewer. Sweet :).

    From memory (and my memory in unreliable) the Rega stand is about 50 quid.
