Mounting a Centre Speaker

Is there any reason why I shouldn't use these microwave brackets to hold my centre speaker?

The Centre speaker is a bit of a brute measuring 8-5/8" H x 18-3/4" W x 14" D and weighing it at 30lbs and will be sited on the wall behind my Tosh RPTV.

Has anyone else used Microwave brackets for this purpose or is it a definite :nono:

I use a B&W LCR60 s3 for my surround rear channel and it is mounted on a microwave support. It was about the only thing I could find at a reasonable price to hold the LCR60. I have run a rattle test from DVE disk and it causes no problems and works well for me. At about £14 Here for the support I thought that I had nothing to loose trying it, and that was 18 months ago!

Thanks Mark,

I am interested to know how 'tall' the back part of the bracket is as I don't really want to see the bracket poking out at the top of the speaker. The Centre is just over 8" high. Any chance you could have a quick measure and let me know?

Cheers

I guess different makes etc will all be slightly different, but mine is 8" from top of support to the top of the upright and is only just visable over the top of my LCR60.

HTH,
Mark.

Looks like that will be a perfect fit then Mark, thanks for taking the time to measure for me :smashin:
No problem as the speaker is mounted directly above the PC monitors. Glad to be of some help.

Mark.
