    Default Any Ideas or pictures of homemade center speaker stands for tv's

    So I bought the CSi A6 and man it's BIG, ENORMOUS!! My problem is should I build a center speaker cover for the TV to sit on and stay on top of the entertainment center or should I put the center over the TV on a shelf (mostly hidden...quasi floating). Both will look somewhat ackward but I have to do something till we move and I end up mounting the TV and all my problems are solved. All advise is welcome.

    Thanks for the comments everyone, I ended up buying these real low profile L braces/brackets.

    kinda look like that but cooler, made of steel, 11'"x8"x1", I sanded the powder coat and spray painted it with an oilbased paint that matches my walls, eventhough its behind the TV anyways, you cant even see the brackets since the center is right over the TV floating about 1/4'' over it at most. I didnt want to raise my TV above eye level when sitting. Drilled them into the studs so they can handle the CSi A6 weight (30lbs). I'll try to throw some pics up soon if nyone wants to see them, I know pics always help me.

    my pic got messed up, imagine the /'s pushed over to the right like a brace for the upside L shape. BTW, they were only like $6 each and the srcews were $1.88 for 3 and I used 6, Spray paint was $4ish. Pretty cheap overall
