Getting an LSA LCR center speaker and it’s going to be bigger than I’d initially realized, to the tune of 35lbs and 22''w x 14 ½”d x 9''h! Trying to figure out how to best mount it since it can't sit on the lip of my mantel.

I’m thinking of using L-brackets screwed to the front face of the mantel, then placing the speaker's cradle on the L-bracket and screwing into it from the bottom so it can’t get knocked off. Then the speaker would simply rest in the cradle.

Got any other suggestions? My worry is that the horizontal piece of the L-bracket that sticks out will have to be quite long due to the 15”depth of the speaker, and therefore the 35lb weight might cause it to sag…
