Hey Guys,

I am looking for a speaker stand that will accommodate a large center speaker and won't block my view of the tv. I have a LG 50" and a KEF C6 (soon) center channel. I am looking for something that will work with this setup.

Any help would be great!

Thanks

Did you have a specific type of stand you're looking for? There should be a number of different stands that will accommodate your needs. In my case, the center channel sits on the top shelf of a 3-shelf hybrid TV stand/mount directly below the TV.

Depending on your needs, something like this may or may not work for you.



With my 55" LCD installed at the maximum height, the top shelf has 9" of clearance. With a 50" TV, there would be more than enough room for a KEF C6.

Is that stable? Does not look it.

I admit the setup looks top-heavy, but it's stable (or at least, stable enough for me).

Ikea Besta with a B&W HTM 61 inside (H 7.8 in x W 21.5 in X D 13.4 in)

Looks and works great IMO.

Had this same problem (needed a large center channel shelf) and I wanted a stand that was "bomb proof", so I had no other choice than to build one. There's a nice "Build your own TV stand" thread on AVS and my project is below:

Sorry for reviving a dormant thread, but I have a question...

Does anybody know how big the actual shelves are in an IKEA besta TV unit?
I am getting an Infinity PC351 center channel and I need to know if it'll fit on a Besta shelf. I can't find the actual shelf dimensions anywhere!
(There are no IKEA locations near me, so I can't easily check myself.)

Any other suggestions for a low and long console that can fit the PC351?

Thanks!

Ever get an answer to this? I have been digging around the internet and striking out?

I finally came back to the States and went to Ikea two days ago. The PC351 does not fit in any of the Besta units at all.
