Hi,
I've searched high and low and can't seem to find a cabinet to put my center channel speaker into. My setup is a wall mounted plasma with a Definitive Technology CLR 2000 on top of a Lovan stand on the floor. The speaker is huge and heavy. While the Lovan stand supports the weight, I'm not crazy about the aesthetics of the setup.

As near as I can tell, I like the Lovan stand more than any other stands. The problem is that I'd prefer a rectangular cabinet with a fabric front that hides the speaker. I can't seem to find any cabinets dedicated to center channel speakers, or even ones dedicated to A/V equipment but smaller and with a fabric front.

Anyone have any advice?

Thanks!
LL

I'll take the lack of feedback as a sign that nobody knows of a solution for this. I'm surprised, as I would have imagined it's a common need.

See this post. The cabinet conceals the LRC speakers as well as AV equipment. I don't think this is a common thing to do, but maybe the person in the linked post can help you out.

I have the same Lovan center stand on top of a glass entertainment center which holds all my AV gear. It sits just perfectly below the edge of my Panny plasma close to ear height. If you get some sort of "media stand" could you rest the Lovan/center on top?

Maybe, but people here do have different tastes.

I would not want a cloth-concealed cabinet because (1) it's too big and I never want my speakers to look bigger than the TV; (2) Full cloth makes it look like an old-skool furnishing (I like modern).

So no input from me, too late? ^)

Solution: FREE. Explanation: I will have to charge$ you.
