I've just got my new screen up and it seems I had a few miscalculations in measurements. I have the Andrew Jones pioneer speakers (not the $80,000 ones
and the center channel is a decent size.
Now, when I'm sitting on the couch, the speaker peeks into view at the bottom of the screen. I had thought about getting a different, smaller center channel, but don't want to screw up the timber of my speakers.
Here are some pictures to illustrate the problem.
My current setup:
and from the seating area:
I'm not sure if you can see it in the photo, but the center speaker edges into the screen just slightly from my viewing height.
I can't really move the TV stand, as all my speaker hookups, cable line, and ethernet ports are there. It currently houses my receiver, PS3, HTPC, and several hard drives.
Any suggestions on some relatively cheap means of fixing my problem? As you can see, I can't really raise the screen.
I've considered sawing down the feet of the TV stand a few inches, but that really ruins the piece and we're only going to be in our current house for a few more years.
Does anyone know of an extra low profile TV stand that could accommodate my equipment that I could still have the speaker on (20" or less I'd guess). The Ikea LACK tv unit (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40105340/
) is certainly short enough (and cheap enough), but I'd ideally like something enclosed like my current setup becaue of sound and cable management.
Any help? I just need the setup to be a few inches shorter!
