I recently moved and my original idea for my center speaker placement didn't work out (buy a new media stand that fit the center speaker) so I'm looking for some advice.

As the picture shows, I have my setup along the wall with the closet and I temporarily have my center speaker set back in it above the TV and angled down. As expected, it seems to effect the sound and create an echo as I'm sure the sound 'bounces' around the closet. With that, my thought is to get a stand/shelving unit that allows the speaker to sit above the TV and not be set back in the closet (level with the opening) and then run a curtain of acoustically transparent fabric to cover that entire wall. Does anyone see any potential issues with that or have an alternative suggestion? Sorry in advance for the poor iphone picture!

That one is from Crutchfield.

I think that's all you need, unless you're trying to hide the closet.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I took a look at that and am not sure it would support my center speaker, which is an Infinity Beta C360 that is too deep and heavy for the shelf. (11.75" D and 34.5 #s)

And yes, my goal is to eventually have the closet hidden behind a curtain. Ugh, it would be much easier to buy a standard curtain if I didn't have to have my center speaker behind it.

Mount a shelf on an arm to the wall? Mount to the TB support/bracket instead of to the TV? I can't quite see how your current setup is from the photo.

You could use a wall-mount articulating arm to hold the center channel speaker, with the arm sticking through the midway curtain gap.



If you can't find a mount designed for a speaker, use a small TV mount.

There is some space behind the TV - you could build a tall wood shelf that fits behind the TV.

Or, you could hang the TV on the wall, with an articulating mount. Center speaker then hangs below the TV, attached to the TV mount.
